SHOT Show Highlight : Remington R51





” The Model R51 is a combination of features chosen specifically to make it extremely easy to point and shoot. Its grip angle has been optimized for rapid target acquisition. The low bore axis design boosts this effect while also aids in offering up to 25 percent less muzzle rise at the shot for faster, more accurate follow-ups. For comfortable carry, it features a lightweight aluminum frame with rounded edges.”

” The rare and relatively costly Kel-Tec KSG is compared on the range against the classic, common, and relatively cheap Remington 870. These two 12 gauge pump-action shotguns each have their strengths, but there are also some quirks present. The KSG can’t easily get on target without added sights, and the slide needs to be operated very purposefully to cycle. The design of the 870, while simple and ready to go off the shelf, has half the capacity of the KSG.













Remington 700 Mil-Spec 5R: Bargain Buy For A Thousand-Yard Rifle



” To many shooters, the allure of long-range rifle shooting is irresistible. An accurate rifle that can reach out and touch at a thousand yards is an attractive part of any collection. What isn’t so glamorous of long-range shooting is emptying the life savings to afford a rifle capable of it. In the search for a rifle that could shoot well but wouldn’t break the bank, I came across a member of the Remington 700 family, the Mil-Spec 5R stainless steel in .308 Winchester.”




” The main feature that sets this rifle apart from other Remington rifles is the 5R rifled barrel. This is the same type of rifling used in the standard-issue M24 sniper rifles, which uses five lands and grooves instead of six. The edges of the lands are tapered down to the grooves, which results in a more complete gas seal around the bullet and the five lands and grooves cause less deformation of the bullet, which leads to better accuracy over conventional rifling.

The heavy-profile barrel is 24 inches long and made of stainless steel. Coupled with the 5R rifling is a faster 1 in 11.25-inch twist, allowing heavier bullets to be stabilized reliably.” 







Beretta Leaves Maryland Because Of Stricter Gun Laws




” New legislation is forcing gun manufacturing company Beretta to uproot and take their business elsewhere.

Established in 1526, Beretta holds the distinction of being the oldest active firearms manufacturer in the world. The U.S. factory is located in Accokeek, Maryland, and has been a staple of the local economy for years.

Beretta warned that stricter gun control laws would push the company outside of state lines, but that didn’t stop Maryland legislators. Jeffrey Reh, a spokesman for Beretta who also serves as the President of Stoeger Industries under Beretta, announced that the company would begrudgingly uproot and take its business elsewhere.

Beretta’s bold move is regrettable but understandable. Reh told reporters, “Why expand in a place where the people who built the gun couldn’t buy it?” “





Cane Guns: A Remington Led Arms Race




” The most common accessory that the well-dressed gentleman in the 1850s carried was a walking cane. This simple object was a status symbol among those with taste, the equivalent of the rapier carried by nobles during the Renaissance period. You simply did not leave home without it—so what better place to hide a gun?

It may surprise people today, but the most commonly encountered cane gun that ever saw mass production was made by American gun great,Remington Arms. The company’s master mechanic John F. Thomas patented (#19,328) a percussion fired single-shot cane rifle in 1858 and within a year, Remington was selling their guns to an eager public.”



” These weapons could fire a .31 caliber ball with a load of black powder ignited by a percussion cap. Weighing from 20 to 24-ounces depending on length and caliber, the canes were coated with a natural rubber known as gutta-percha.  They tend to be between 33-36 inches long overall. To fire the gun, pull the handle back to a cocked position, aim the cane, press the small button recessed in the handle that actuated the striker and hold on. ”

FNH Lands Army M4 Contract, Underbids Colt, Remington



” After a lengthy back-and-forth bidding war between Colt and Remington, one that would eventually involve the Government Accountability Office and the threat of a Congressional hearing, F.N. Herstal has won the contract to update and replace the Army’s aging rifles.

In April of 2012, Remington finally broke the chain of Colt contracts with the U.S. Army, placing an $84 million bid for a run of 120,000 M4A1s, with 24,000 carbines to be delivered starting September of this year.

The cost per Remington M4A1 was just $673 per. Their bid severely undercut Colt’s previous contract, which priced the rifles at over $1,200 a piece.

FN’s contract with the Army is $77 million for the first 120,000 rifles, which works out to a bottom line of just under $642 per M4A1. These will be manufactured at FNH USA in South Carolina along side the M16A4s and M249s FNH USA currently produces for the U.S. armed forces.”



Remington 870 Gets The Magpul Treatment Too





” Earlier today we talked about Remington’s new R-15 rifles coming out with Magpul furniture, but the real news is that they’re coming out with an officially-sanctioned Remington 870 decked out with Magpul’s new buttstock and forend.

This was less of an “if” and more of a “when” but we’re glad Remington’s doing it sooner rather than later. Magpul launched their line of 870 accessories about six months ago and it was pretty instantaneously successful.

So the Remington 870 Express Tactical Magpul shotgun isn’t too much of a surprise. The good news is that they did more than just add the furniture to a bare-bones 870. They added it to their already popular Express Tactical, which has a handful of features that befit this equally-tactical furniture.”

Sailing through the Sea of Remington 870s


” The Remington 870 is arguably the most prolific pump shotgun. More than 10 million have been made. There are so many existing variations and customization that it is hard to define exactly what an 870 is. Remington currently makes more than thirty variations. But that doesn’t begin to represent all of the possible variations. “

Some Surprising Members 

  ” Most of the top 25 U.S. firearm manufacturers, according to the National Shooting Sports Foundation‘s “Industry Intelligence Reports” for 2012, are what you expect. Ruger and Smith & Wesson, the only two publicly traded firearm companies, produced the most firearms in 2010 and then the likes of Remington, Savage, Beretta, SIG, etc follow closely behind. “

  ” There are five companies, however, that seem to stand out among the rest. Five that, for lack of a better word, seem obscure. And as to why they produce such a high volume of guns is anyone’s guess. One can deduce that they’re part of a larger company, cornered a niche market or just simply sell a product at a lower price than its competition. But we don’t know any of that for sure because private companies don’t have to report information like that. But with the information that is public and available like trends, sales catalogs and the data compiled by the ATF, FBI and NSSF, we can make some educated guesses. “

  Rand Simberg on the headlong rush toward economic suicide in the ” Golden State ”

   Whether it’s Illinois and Caterpillar , New York and Remington or California and the Space Industry the “blue state” model is unraveling .

” In the last decade, the town has
become a hotbed of aerospace innovation. XCOR is just one of several companies pushing the envelope not just of performance, but also of cost effectiveness in spaceflight. This is because of the town’s favorable flying weather
and access to the large, restricted airspace just to the south at Edwards Air Force Base and
NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center. Its proximity to Los Angeles, with its remaining technological infrastructure, has been invaluable
as well, not to mention the culture, and the variety of southern California geography and scenery. From beaches to desert to mountains, L.A. is an attractive vicinity for employees. West Texas, in contrast, is hundreds of miles from any major urban center and farther still from any ocean.

  What Texas offers, though, beyond the direct financial incentives, is a much more business-friendly and employee-friendly environment. Even people with modest salaries pay almost ten
percent of their salaries in California income tax. In Texas, that rate will go to zero. In California, Proposition 65 requires warning signage for every fluid on site, with fines for failure to post
— just one more burden on a company that.builds and operates rocket-powered vehicles. When California’s idiotic new carbon trading law comes into effect this year, the company is going to have to start tracking every gallon of
fuel it burns and report it to the state. No one in Texas will care. “
