Has anyone heard or know anything about this companies wooden stocks? I found 1 for an 1100 for sale. Stock looks nice, just wondered how they fit. Thanks Dale

Sile was an importer based in NYC in the 60's and 70's and 80s. They also had a location in Meriden, CT for a long time and it was this location that serviced many of the firearms factories with wood. I worked at Mossberg at the time and we bought most of our birch stocks and forearms from SIle. Also they supplied Winchester, Savage and I believe Marlin.

If you have an early Krieghoff with the Red stock, you will find that these stocks were also marked SILE.

I don't know about Remington buying from them, but since Remington was based in Bridgeport, CT for a long time I would not doubt that Sile sold them too.

The owners name was Nick DeRobertis. They were also a distributor for most of the firearms companies as well and their location was on Centre Market Place next to the John Jovino Co. this was in the late 70s.
