When this bankruptcy sale is complete, will Remington (brand) firearms still be made?
If so, by what company?

Roundhill bought the factories, is licensed to use the name Remington, and has committed to hiring 200 Remington employees.

Kind of excited about Ruger getting Marlin. Remington really dicked them up big time.

No one seems to be mentioning Dakota, and it’s various brands?

Remington did not screw up Marlin; they saved it. Yes they had some problems transitioning the manufacturing, but things were much improved before the damn governor shut them down.

That is my take too, from perusing the Marlinowners.com forum.

As a multiple marlin owner, 4 JM and 1 REP, I can spot a remington marlin from about 10 feet away due to fit and finish issues, and it gets worse when you look in close details in the action. What they did was a dam tragedy, both to the company and the people.

Marlin wasn't on hard times either, it was actually quite the opposite, but the owner got old & sick and the family didn't have interest in it. Simple as that.

Remington (cerberus really) junked them, moved them, then cut bait with all the experienced employees once the line was moved and up and running so nobody actually knew what was going on.

Marlins were being basically hand assembled by old time craftsmen using worn tooling. They had no accurate computer control drawings for guns or parts. Cerebus did not understand this or didn't understand what it meant. Many employees had the opportunity to move and elected not to - took the buy out.
The guns they were turning out just before the shutdown were a marked improvement over the earlier ones. I am also a multiple Marlin owner, and a retired gunsmith and gunseller.

That kinda sounds like the Ithaca Model 37 saga

I've owned four JM Marlins and still have two of them. All were fine guns. Have not owned a "Remlin", but am told that the later ones were much better than the early ones.

I have several Marlin levers and one Remlin. The Remlin was purchased only because it was too cheap to pass up. My local Walmart had an 1895 marked down to $299 and Marlin also had a $50 rebate at the time, so I got it for $249.

Fit and finish is certainly not up to the standards of the old Marlins. My real Marlins were all made in the early-mid 70's.

But for $249, the Remlin isn't bad. No way I would have paid retail for it.
