Example text

Today, Remington is bigger than it ever has been before. Its ultra-modern manufacturing facility is located in Ilion, New York, the same place where it has been operating since its beginning. The company continues to make the newest and the best firearms that modern technology and ingenuity can produce. Remington produces a dizzying array of rifles and shotguns and recently started producing a pistol, the Remington 1911R1, something the company has not done since World War I. Remington had made other modern-day pistols, including a small pocket automatic, the Model 51, in the 1930s, and a single-shot bolt-action, the venerable XP100, which was made from the 1960s until the 1980s.

It was quite a reduction in time and, therefore, significant cost savings, when you consider that the machining time is one of the most, if not the most, expensive operations in gunmaking. Barrel manufacture was also simplified. The barrels were made to be completely interchangeable within each gauge, without any fitting necessary, and all could be removed by simply unscrewing the magazine cap. The barrels also had a long extension into which the bolt locked in. The fire-control mechanism was fitted into the trigger housing which, as already mentioned, was cast alloy.

Those wishing to purchase a new pump gun flocked to the Remington, unless they absolutely had to save money—or simply didn’t know much about guns. Before the outbreak of World War II, Remington had been playing catch up with Winchester, trying to come up with a pump gun that could compete with the Model 12. Remington had finally been able to compete, at least to some extent, when it came out with the finely made Model 31, 19 years after the appearance of the Model 12. But now, in the mid-1960s, the roles were reversed.
