    One of the few American companies I still bought new guns from, bought by a company that chased me off.

    Damn, I just bought a few Marlins -- great guns! -- and now I'll have to buy whatever others I want before Remington's influence starts to show...

    My opinion: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=317009&page=2

    And I really do know shotgunners who refer to a hammer as a Remington Loading Tool.

    Cerberus owns Bushmaster and Remington (and Chrysler among many other companies), and now Remington owns Marlin, which owns New England/Harrington & Richardson. Bushmaster owns Cobb Manufacturing, etc.

    Cerberus is beginning to get my scrutiny...

    Bushmaster makes perfectly acceptable AR's. For a higher price than their equivalents from other vendors.

    I have seen a couple MA complient Bushmasters for about $1000 around here(in MA).

    But its too bad the these companies are loosing their individuality and becoming a giant "monster".

    Great. Now let's hope the deeper pockets & larger production line of Remington can produce that Marlin 1894C .357 Stainlss Steel again as a regular rifle rather than a special run. I'd love to have one.

    If it's so, Remington now owns the company that imports copies of the 870 from China.

    As long as they build and price it like a Marlin.

    If Remington made the same gun, it would have firewood-grade press-checkered walnut, lousy fit and a lousy finish, for $750, unless you pay $1500 for the Custom shop version. Or, you could get the 1894C XCR with a plastic stock for $1000.

    I'm not happy about this buy-out. I like Marlin products but I highly doubt they will remain the same now that Remington owns them. Sometimes a boy-out like this makes both companies better. I don't think that's the case here, Marlin products will suffer IMO.

    Jeez, I guess I'm gonna have to hurry up and buy that 1895 I've been wanting for a while now.

    The news is that Cerberus is putting Marlin under Remington. Cerberus bought Marlin a few weeks ago.

    All they have to do now is pull a S&W and we won't have to worry about the government taking our 2A rights. Private industry will do it for us.

    DPMS also was bought by the conglomerate so all of these are under one roof now.
