I don't understand why Remington keeps having problems making rifles. Besides Marlins, their poor quality has damaged the resale value of their Remington Line too. I see so many ads on local websites with Remington rifle for sale, and anything that is over $500 is a hard sell. Many used rifles just don't sell. Ironically, the older Remingtons were good rifles, but people are gun shy of Remington. Pun Intended. You cannot get back your reputation once it is ruined anymore than a school kid can get back their Virginity once its gone.
