    Remington potentially being sold to Navajo Nation

    https://www.abqjournal.com/1471186/f...jo-nation.html


    Article in today's local paper said it's a likely go despite the earlier rejection.


    Hmmm, how bad will they suck after this or will this be a turn around for their quality?

    Interesting, it will probably give them protection from state laws. I can't see it being a huge money generator for them but moving manufacturing to the rez would increase employment.

      They want domestic manufacturing in their nation for when the US falls apart. Makes perfect sense.

        If there quality goes up, i'm all for it. Savage arms got rid of their chief on the logo a few years ago, if navajo reimagine the logo for remington or add a native rollmark, i'm a buyer. why? because Fuck those anti-history and anti-native bastards that think every damn thing needs to be removed from corporate media.

        quality goes down even more, again? fuck 'em with their own rusty mfg'd stuff

            Well, they might as well keep the "Remington" name . . .

                here is a thread on people talking about it fairly recently.

                savage was obviously the dudes name and the logo was a play on that name, savage arms claims the 1919 deal resulted in the 'endorsement' of the logo, not that the logo started use then. logo predates endorsement, if endorsement was ever there.

                point is: Either fucking way, too many bullshit people 'decided' it was offensive and savage arms buckled. did natives buy savage rifles with the logo? fuck yeah they did. why? because fuck you, that's why

                  I live 20 min from the navajo rez, have all my life. The navajo govt is probably the most crooked govt of all the tribes, if they end up with it im sure they will be out of biz in two years.

                      What Remmington needs is some innovation, and they screwed the pooch in how they handled the 700 situation.

                        Is there a rez government that isn't? Laguna is pretty FUBAR'd too. Read up on the millions embezzled, I mean unaccounted for, from all their government contracts. Yet the fed continues to pour money into the rez.

                        I think if it happens it will be run further into the ground if that's possible. I definitely don't want to be one of the first to buy one of their thunder sticks

                          They allready have the best fire works and more firewater than they know what to do with. Guns wont make a difference at this point.

                          Didnt 1 or 2 gun mfg wioe their ass with the .gov anyhow?
                          Seems like this would be a good way to get around the bs and build what you want.

                            My observation of what goes on at the local rez is that the abundance of .gov programs and money given to them as reparations for the horrible things that europeans did to them in the past, has now turned a population of people who were once the definition of self-sufficient badasses mostly into a group of lazy, government dependent, diabetic, alcoholics that get away with drug abuse/trafficking, poaching, domestic violence, and waterway pollution that would put anyone else in jail for 100 years. It's a pretty good case study for what's going to happen to the entire U.S. in a few more years of increasing handouts that keep making life easier. The difference is that there won't really be anywhere to get the funding from. Not sure what happens then.
                            95% chance this Remington thing won't go well, I hope it does, but I'd bet against it.

                              There is no possible way that quality could improve by moving MFG to the navajo rez.
