Remington is the " American as apple pie" of firearm makers. They are not normally associated with what the public percieve to be "scary guns". They are primarily seen as a family friendly company of deer rifles and duck shotguns. This would put them way down on the anti's list..........wouldn't it?
Not so much, Remington is the parent company of Bushmaster, DPMS arms, I believe they own part of Marlin as well, as numerous companies whose names escape me at the moment. This is all under the umbrella of a conglomerate called The Freedom Group. This naturally makes them a target for the anti's. If you can demonize the Howdy Doodie of firearm makers that will make the rest fall like dominos.
Think about it, why else would they go to such lengths to intentionally falsify data, alter weapons and then never turn them in to Remington for inspection and repair?
I personally own 5 Remington firearms, two of which are model 700 rifles. They are unaltered and properly maintained. I have handled firearms all my life and have never had a problem with a 700 or any other Remington product.
Consider the "source" of this so called investigation.
