There were a lot of new CNC's as well as the older Machinery they were sent. All of it was more than capable of producing good product. You're at the mercy of Set-up People, Electricians, Machine Mechanics and their abilities.Halwg said:Sounds like maybe they should have just gotten all new machinery.
I just bought a rem made 795 and it is flawless full mag under 1/2 inch at 40 yrds with remington subsonic ammogreenfox said:Of all the issues with the new Remington made Marlin rifles, does anyone know which models of Marlin rifles that Remington IS making right ???
They had no idea what they were in for as far as the age of some of the equipment. As well as, how to adjust, repair, and maintain the equipment.Gyre said:I feel bad for the operators involved in the restart. I have been there and it is so very frustrating when you do not have the mechanical and electrical support you need. It takes a lot of skilled workers and managers to get machinery running again. If that is not planned for life sucks. The events surrounding the shutdown of the machinery can also have an effect and sadly it is seldom on good terms.
It all came down to money.McyNHMarlin said:I don't understand why they moved the plant in the first place? If you invest in buying a company like Marlin wouldn't it be in Remmington's best intrest to continue making the best gun possible? Why move production away from the people experienced with the machines and gun who have been reliably putting out a quality product for so long? Was quality and attention to detail too expensive for Remmington? The first gun I ever owned was an 870, but I'm having doubts if I ever want to buy a Remmington gun again, seems to me they don't care about customers or quality, only profit and getting rid of competition.
