I wonder if Remington is going to keep making some of the models at one of their other plants?

Been expecting that since that bought them. Hate to see 250+ people lose their jobs.
Remington closed it's Gardner, Massachusetts plant in 2008 and got rid of 200 jobs.

They had already moved some of H&R's production to Remington plants a couple of years ago

They are moving south to escape the labor unions and looney leftists.

I see no reason why any gun manufacturer would continue to support an area that is trying to shut them down.

There was much discussion on this in another forum.

I hate to see that about Marlin though. :tears: Most of us grew up at some point with an old Marlin or Winchester lever action in our hands.

I don't think Marlin is going away---just relocating.

Marlin Being Relocated

After 140 years, the Marlin plant located in North Haven, Connecticut will be closed by the middle of next year. According to Remington Arms sources, the facility is being decommissioned and the manufacturing relocated to Remington's Ilion, New York facilities, the Marlin lines are not moving offshore.

At this writing, it seems Marlin, Harrington and Richardson, New England Firearms and L.C. Smith- all Marlin brands -are destined for absorption into Remington's existing manufacturing facilities in Ilion, New York. Such a move would maximize use of that facilities and consolidate manufacturing operations.

Heard on another board that Marlins will mostly be built in Remington's plant in Ilion NY. The word is that the old Marlin plant was obsolescent and high cost, and it didn't pay to modernize when they had extra capacity in other facilities.
