870 solid platform, i have 3 in various configurations. 700 has been accused of being plagued with negligent discharges, both in the military and civilian markets. Dont think its ever been proven, not been debunked as far as i know either. The one case that comes to mind is a lawsuit out of (Colorado maybe?) Lady unloading a 700 and shot through a horse trailer and killed her young son. Been 10 years ago or so tho. With that being said i carried a 700 (platform) for many years in the military and it never malfunctioned over thousands of rounds.

Id look at the savage 10 or 110. For the money and a little lapping its best value out there.(that wont be a popular opinion&#x1f601

You can buy 30rd mini14 mags from ruger right now so long as you’re not living or have a billing address in a prohibited place. So idk where that statement came from
My understanding is ruger stopped shipping mini14s and even manufacturing them (30 rd mags) some time ago. Now that you mention it tho its been years since i heard (or read??) That. I certainly could be wrong, but staum was a leftist shill towards the end tho. As for my quality statement regarding ruger rifles i stand by that. The mini 14 is a shell of what it once was, and i have had 5 10/22 over the years and have never had a factory mag worth a damn. I do like the new ruger precision rifles tho, just dont trust then because of tha bird on them. If they were willing to sacrifice quality so much on the mini14 why would i drop 1200 bucks on a bolt action(new product) when i can get a savage or a tikka i know and trust.. thats just been my experience tho, i respect your opinion.

Plenty of cost effective ars out there with better political leanings, like adams, anderson and s&w. Good riddance.

Uhm... Ruger is probably one of the best gun companies in the business. They still make lockless solid revolvers, ARs that aren’t bad, Good rifles in many different varieties. The 10/22 and all its many variants is an American icon and their new Ruger PC Carbine is quite the hit as well. Chris Killroy and I have exchanged some emails and he seems to be very Pro 2A and anti Fudd.

Which parent company? Remember, prior to being acquired by Cerebus, Remington manufactured great kit. .
Outside of the SuperMax, it was all acquired pre Cerebus, but Big Green was going downhill for probably 6-7 years before that.

Kymudder08 I’ve had hands on experience with pre acquisition bushmasters/dpms and new ones. The new ones don’t even come close to the old ones. The pre 2007 dpms my buddy has feels and shoots just as good as my colts/spikes/bcm etc. the fit and finish was top notch

jm0179 Just spit balling here. This could have nothing to do with Bloomberg or Soros, but based on the Bushmaster was used in Sandyhook and the courts recently ruled that they can be held responsible for the actions of the shooter. This verdict will now allow the families to sue Bushmaster. Remington probably figured it would be cheaper to close the company because I’m sure it is it’s one entity for legal reasons like this.

Also, let’s face it, this platforms are horrible. Too much competition that is better and less expensive. Bushmaster has become obsolete.

Remington still produces some good weapons. Are they as great as my dad’s that were purchased 30+ years ago - debatable.

What am I wrong on? Donít just tell someone they are wrong. You have to prove it for them to be wrong. Iím more then willing to concede but I need to be presented with the facts.

I assure you it has nothing to do with the types of guns but a lot more to do with PSA, Smith and Wesson, And the like steeling their market share.
