It was just brought to my attention that Tapco, DPMS, and Bushmaster are ALL out of business, shuttered by their parent company, Remington arms.

Remington said in a press release that they are concentrating more on the "sporting" (AKA Fudd) guns.

"Remington Outdoor Company informed RSR at the SHOT Show that they will be focusing on their core hunting and shooting brands – AAC, Barnes, Marlin and Remington. Bushmaster, DPMS, StormLake Barrels and Tapco will no longer be produced, with the exception of the Bushmaster BA50."

TTAG spoke to a Remington representative who said the direction on the brands isn’t clear at this point and they were emphasizing sporting-directed firearms from Remington and Marlin at the SHOT Show."

Remington, if you were REALLY concentrating on your fudd guns I wouldn't have to hunt for an antique 336 if I wanted a good Marlin.

This SCREAMS Bloomburg and Soros money to me.

Couldn't POSSIBLY be because there is an election against ANOTHER presidential socialist candidate coming up, virtually guaranteeing another run on black guns and large profit.

sarcasm.

I'll bet the folks at Palmetto State Armory are jumping up and down for joy, though.

I have a speed master .22 , a few shotguns and a 243 Remington. The oldest is a 1947 to 49 12 ga. The newest is at lip east 30 years old. I still love the speed master. I used the use a .22 case for my targets when I was young and could see. I have no use for the newer guns. Ar type guns are more accurate than I will ever be now.

I probably own 40 guns. Other than a used 870 I purchased, I don't think I own any Remington's. Oh, and a 700 SPS Tac.
That's a good starter kit.

I am a die-hard Remington man. My latest M700 BDL is 15 years old. My oldest 700 BDL will shortly see its 47th brithday. The oldest in the collection, a Model 722, dates back to before I was born.

Remington has been crap for decades. Ever since they started making guns that would fire as you took the safety off. Screw them. They make nothing that others don't do better.

Doesn't seem to make much business sense to close down AR factories when AR sales are booming.
Nobody is buying bushmasters. They are buying $350 parts guns.

DPMS is now out of business?

I didn't know that.

Thanks for the heads up.

Is Remington still going to provide thier version of the MSR AR10, or stick to manual cycled action rifles only?

Let me get this straight. In a Capitalistic Society, OP takes umbrage that Remington is presumably cutting their losses? May as well go Central Planning and FORCE them to sell what WE want.
Because the decision is likely more to comply with political pressures than anything related to profitability.
They are based in New York.
