Remington Arms

Remington Arms

Remington Arms Company, Inc. was founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington in Ilion, New York, as E. Remington and Sons. It is the oldest company in the United States which still makes its original product, and is the oldest continuously operating manufacturer in North America. It is the only U.S. company which produces both firearms and ammunition domestically, and is the largest U.S. producer of shotguns and rifles. After a 12-year absence in the handgun market, Remington announced the Model 1911 R1 in April 2010, slated to be available through select independent dealers beginning June 2010. The last handgun produced by Remington Arms, the Model XP-100R, ceased production in 1998. Its products are distributed in over 60 foreign countries, making its base wider than those of its competitors.

Remington has also developed or adopted more cartridges than any other gun maker or ammunition manufacturer in the world.

Remington is part of the Freedom Group, owned by Cerberus Capital Management.

    I can understand that if you have sold arms to the ayatollah why you might not be quite as sensitive to the need to get assault weapons off our streets.
