Bob & Doom should remember me prior prior year posts; I have friends who retired from Remington prior to all the financial problems. Ken D'Arcy a long time Remington Executive is doing a fine job @ the helm.
They had quality control issues with the roll out of the Model 870 that was corrected very quickly, the 870 is a good as it ever was with exception of trigger group is nom composite like Beretta's. They have plans to add 5R rifling to all 700 barrel models and a new twist rate for .223 of 1-8 twist from prior production of 1-9 and 1-12.

The 1-8 twist in a heavy barrel 700 would be a fun low recoil moderate range steel plate rifle.
