    I was just looking at the new Remington "Premier" over/under shotgun on their website. I was drooling until I read the part about "crafted in Italy to our specifications". What would be so wrong with crafted in America to Remington specifications? I forget the name of the last Remington over/under, but was it so bad that they had to go and get the Italians to make a gun for them?

    It shouldn't be so hard to find a good American made over/under shotgun. I'd rather just buy a real Beretta than a bastardized Beretta with Remington stamped on it. It's pretty sad. :banghead:

    They still list the 332.

    I'm thinking that, if they had actually gotten some 332's into stores here, they might have sold some. I wanted one, but I won't buy a shotgun if I haven't shouldered it.

    Are you listening, Remington? I'll probably get a Cynergy, but would rather buy American. And a 20 gauge would be nice.

    Remington is an interesting company. Like Sony, they seem to be willing to absorb some failures as long as they keep hitting the mark sometimes.

    I think they want to test the waters for more imports, after having some success with Baikals.

    Remington over/under shotgun

    If Remington made that O/U shotgun here in the U.S. you could not afford to purchase it. Why do you think all the other SxS and O/U manufacturers except Ruger have gone out of business.

    Remington DOES make an O/U in the US and it's less expensive.

    That's what's weird about this, really. It's hard to read what they're doing.
