From what I read, the Remington plant in Lonoke was running at a reduced capacity.
Great! I hope that will start to help with supplies.In a normal year (?) Lonoke would be running 24/7. Because of the bankruptcy and sale to Vista they are building gradually. Right now one shift is operating and that is not at 100%. Look for full production around March/April.
The other asset purchases involve: Roundhill Group LLC buying the non-Marlin firearms business for $13 million; Sierra Bullets LLC paying $30.5 million for its Barnes ammunition business; JJE Capital Holdings LLC for the DPMS, H&R, Stormlake, AAC and Parker brands; Franklin Armory Holdings LLC for the Bushmaster brand and related assets; and Sportsman's Warehouse Inc. for the Tapco brands.I don't believe Vista bought the shotgun manufacturer but I'm not sure who did.
All were made in Ilion, NY until last October. When, if ever, they are made again is anyone's guess. Not for a few months the way it looks...could be wrong, but there is not much information coming out of the new owners and I don't have any contacts with the Firearms business any more.My question, what Remington plant makes the 870 Wingmaster and when will stock be back in stores.
Where are you at? Around Round Rock Bass Pro all the shelves are empty!I have been seeing Remington Gun Clubs trickle into Cabela's. It's not a huge amount but it beat the zero availability that we had before. The biggest downside I see is that Cabelas wants $8.99 a box.
None of the stores around here have any ammo on their shelves, shotgun, pistol or rifle. Even the off caliber rifle shells are sold. It's crazy I think the gun & ammo manufacturers must back the Democrats for election as everytime we get a Dem President the gun & ammo sales go to new records. My only problem with that is the ammo manufacturers need to tool up & start producing more ammo!Ohio. WalMart has AAs and Estates too. Must not be many clay shooters in SE OH that shop at the big boxes.
