Remington Bankruptcy in 2018

Remington Outdoor Company has been manufacturing firearm products for close to 200 years now. Remington is best known for manufacturing handguns, shotguns, rifles, and ammunition for a variety of customers, including hunters, military, and police. Cerberus Capital Management is the company which currently controls Remington. It was recently announced that Remington filed for bankruptcy.

The company filed in a Delaware Court less than a week ago. The filing includes a revised plan for getting rid of the $620 million that Remington owes. This would help them payback most of the money they owe to creditors, but they will have to give a majority of the ownership interests in their company to certain lenders. Two of the big lenders here include JPMorgan Asset Management and Franklin Resources Inc.

Remington 870 Owners Club Meeting

Remington 870 Owners Club Meeting

Organized the first Remington 870 Owners Club meeting. It gathered about 50 Remington 870 owners, each of them received specially designed cap, PVC patch and stickers.

This was first meeting in Ukraine and it was really nice to meet people from all around country. I am surprised that there is no such meetings in the US where most of the Remington 870 owners live.

We had several competitions for participants. Slug stage had 7 steel targets on 30 meters (32 yards) and bird stage had 7 targets on 10 meters. Each shooter had two tries.

Remington 887 Nitro Mag Shotgun Discontinued

Remington 887 Nitro Mag Shotgun Discontinued

Remington 887 Nitro Mag Shotgun was introduced in 2009, it had some very interesting features such as polymer finish called ArmorLokt.

I was contacted by one of the readers of the blog which told me that Remington 887 Nitro Mag shotgun was discontinued. I have contacted Remington and received following answer:

Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the 887 NitroMag shotgun line has been discontinued as of 2015.
We do still offer spare parts as of right now. However, because this model has been discontinued, we cannot guarantee that the parts will be around for long. We do not have any immediate plans to re-release the 887s. There is a possibility that we could bring them back in the future, but we currently do not have any plans in the works.

From Amazon review:
“It’s a short book, but it covers a lot of vital information, including storing your firearm at home, and teaching children about firearm safety. Just a few of the simple precautions he lists here could save countless lives. I know many arrogant gun-owners who will say “I already know all that stuff!”, but accidents can happen to anyone.”

Why the Remington 870 Is Better Than the Mossberg 500

Remington 870

Solid, rugged and dependable comes to mind when you think of Remington 870. The Mossberg 500 however, has an aluminum receiver and a plastic trigger guard, and safety lever, both of
which have to be replaced if used for military or law enforcement purposes. Anyone using the Mossberg 500 for any tactical situation would need to replace the plastic components with metal ones.
