Agreed, I hear theyre out sourcing parts so you never know which remington youre getting, good or bad depends on what they had and needed and normally the out sourced are the little things so to start swapping them out.Well, with newer model Remingtons, its hard to tell just where they are made.
You dont know what all parts are coming from Mexico or Croatia, or if the whole shotgun was made out of overseas or Mexican parts.
But, they should pull the guns apart, remove trigger group assembly, forend, release the action sliders from receivers, look at them, see if there may be burrs or pits, or if the square edge is overly sharp, which is causing them to dig into receiver when gun is fired and locking up the action.
Use fine emery cloth to deburr, smooth out pit/pits some, or to knock the sharp edge off of sliders.
Then use some synthetic bolt/action grease on sliders and inside slider rails in receiver.
Then it should function as slick as a well broke in Remington.And not jam.
Shame. Hard to keep competitive prices without outsourcing. Damn shameLots of companies are starting to do it. I know i plan on keeping all my older scatterguns now.
It isnt so bad if it turns out to be a good shotgun.Shame. Hard to keep competitive prices without outsourcing. Damn shame
Yes we know Remington still assembles alot of guns here, And they are made with some Mexican parts. And then you have the KY plant.They are American made here in Ilion. Just like all gun manufacturing right now we are building as fast as we can to try and fill orders. Sometimes a few sneak by that might have a problem. Every single gun is test fired here with live rounds and proof rounds before it can be passed. I assure you the only gun in this factory that is made oversees is the pardner pump.
They *always* get worse. They have a proven track record. Not just Remington. You'd be hardpressed to find a single change from the originals that was done for an improvement. Off the top of my head, all I can come up with, and this is questionable as to being an improvement, is the split "flexitab" lifter. It fixes, well sort of works around, the old shell under the bolt jam. It took fifty years to fix that. Well, as I said, it doesn't fix it, it works around it. All else, that I can think of, was for cost cutting and all led to a cheaper/lower quality firearm.Lets just hope they dont get worse.
No knocking Remington here. Atleast they still offer a lot of good models, and none coming from Turkey.Evil,
The only thing that comes in is yes small parts. So I'm sure there is some perhaps like pieces in trigger assembly. This factory is HUGE and from what I see all major components are made here. I actually make the chamber in the HR single shots. Spartan gun works models were made so we could get involved in the lower end guns. I know nobody is knocking, just sharing some stuff since I work there.
