I see that letter as an acknowledgment that they have released a lot of crap into the market.
R-51(?) how many times did they go to the well trying to get that thing running? Each time with grand exclamations of its newfound reliability, only to be followed by apologies and excuses.
Model 1894 Marlins anyone? At some point they gave up, admitted they were craptastic, and rebuilt the machinery and people responsible. There are well documented problems with the other lever guns as well.
Marlin X-7, lets smother this in its crib, it is far too good to be allowed into the Cerebis family of cheap bolt guns.
Do we dare bring up the 15 minutes of fame for the new AR-15 wonder chambering? Canít even remember it other than it being a 30 caliber. Dropped that in a hot second.
The trigger... itís crap, if it were not they would not be replacing them. End of story.
Quality control, it has suffered, if you donít believe ityouíre deluding yourself. A company does not go **** up and apologize for their past sins for no reason.
They have the product and institutional knowledge to recover from the financial straights they put themselves into. Theyíve not forgotten how to make guns, theyíve neglected quality control in an effort to turn profit. The strategy worked... for a couple years.
The triggers arenít what put Remington in the financial bind they find themselves in. Itís all the blue tarps that have fallen into ruin while the sun was shining on the firearms industry, winter has come and the rains are pouring in. The letter is to let everyone know the roofers are on site.
I need a kinder gentler machine gun
