Remington Arms Company, Inc., headquartered in Madison, North Carolina, designs, produces and sells sporting goods products for the hunting and shooting sports markets under a family of famous brands including Remington, Marlin, H&R 1871, LLC, New England Firearms, LC Smith and Parker as well as solutions to the military, government and law enforcement markets.
Back in the late 70's many of my friends owned and hunted with Remington 700 BDL model bolt action rifles. And without arguement they were and still are a great rifle. I bought instead an old (late 60's or early 70's I bought used) Remington 742 Carbine in 30-06 and that little rifle in the woods is just hard to beat. Its accurate, fool proof, and never gave me any problems. Yet a friend of mine a few years back bought a Remington Semi Automatic in 30-06 carbine. I believe his model is 7400. And while mine will shoot any brand of ammo with excellent accuracy, his liked to jam if it gets anything other then Remington. He finally sold it and wanted to purchase mine which I told him... not on your life.
Its a shame when a company swallows up another company to avoid competiton but that is the name of the game. What is all your views on the Marlin lever gun. I still want to get one of them in .444, .450 or .45/70. Not that I would hunt with it, but I just wanted to own one...

I won a Marlin 45-70 Guide Gun in a raffle a couple years back.
Fun to shoot. (Bullet has an arch like an NBA jump-shot. ) The gun handles flawlessly; reminds me of when I started out on the old Marlin 30-30.
LOVE the gun!

Best way to get rid of the competition....buy them out.
Worked for Jim Beam. They bought out their main competition, Old Crow (a fine bourbon back then) and then started putting their lowest grade product out under the Old Crow label.
