The Remington name has been inextricably linked to the world of American firearms for most of our nation’s history. Eliphalet Remington II, the then-23-year-old son of a colonial-era blacksmith, made his first flintlock rifle barrel on his father’s forge in 1816. The gun was so well received that he immediately began manufacturing more barrels in quantity, and the foundations of today’s Remington Arms Co. were born. Now more than two centuries later, the brand’s modern firearms are still in heavy circulation all over the United States and beyond. The company also has a major ammunition manufacturing division, Remington Ammunition, producing a wide variety of rifle and pistol calibers, as well as shotshells.
Unfortunately, recent years have seen a fair bit of financial trouble for this much-beloved brand. Bankruptcies, restructuring, buyout bids, and the splitting up of company assets and production divisions have caused more than a little bit of digital ink to be spilled, both on TFB and elsewhere. With bankruptcy proceedings in the offing for 2020, not long after their last bankruptcy filing just two years prior, it was readily apparent that if the storied brand were to have any hope of staying afloat, some changes had to be made – and since then, many have been. Whether it will end up being enough, only time will tell, but we can only hope so. Last year, Vista Outdoors acquired the ammunition operation and facilities in the midst of the industry-wide ammo shortage issues we’ve all come to know far too well. Ammo production appears to be soldiering on in spite of it all, and recently issued the following press release to detail some digital communication and marketplace updates to the brand’s website. The release reads:
