Will owners who have a gun at Remington get them back after bankruptcy?
Have them returned ASAP not fixed?
What would you do?

So you’re saying I shouldn’t send my gun in, right? :lol:

No, I said call them. I just did and they are still handling repairs / warranty. If you have an issue, you need to call them.

I would call them but I think I would wait a little bit to see how things pan out before I actually sent something in.

Good advice, We`ll have a clearer view of what Remington will and won`t be within 30 days, most probably.

That would be foolish. There is an auction set for September 17th, about one month from today. In a month, no one knows what the situation will be, or won't be.

Is anyone other than Randy Wakeman allowed to have an opinion on this forum?

Quite frankly, do you feel mislead by Randy's capability to offer and share his input? Not so here.

Send it to an authorized repair station and let them deal with it. After my experiences sending stuff back to Remington for repair I'd rather not have anything to back to Ilion in the best of times.

What gun, specifically? What do you mean by warranty work? Your question is far too vague to give a specific answer. Surely, anyone who currently has a gun at Remington would bother to call and find out the status.

Hypothetical question??

This is good advice. I doubt the employees at Ilion are putting much focus on the guns right now, since they're wondering how they're going to feed their families.

No way I would send a gun to Remington with all of this going on. Authorized repair center? Sure.

Would repair center do warranty work if they won’t be reimbursed?

If they did, I would suspect that they wouldn't be in business very long, would you?

So, are they going to do warranty work for Remington?

Come on Duk, you know nobody can know that until all this gets sorted out.

Having sent guns back to Remington, browning, Winchester and others over the years there is no way I would send one in to them right now. Typically it’s a 3 to 6 month turn around time at best With most manufacturers so that in itself would make me very hesitant to send it in now. The last Remington I sent in was just shy of 6 months turn around.

I think wait and see is probably the best bet, or just have it fixed locally if possible and pay for it.

Their warranty may well go by the wayside with any sale and everything is to unpredictable for my taste to have them holding one of my firearms while all this plays out.

But that would be up to the owner.
