    Levi-Strauss. Harley-Davidson. Coca-Cola. Remington Arms. All iconic American brands. But when it comes to arms and ammunition, nothing is quite as iconic as Remington. The Beginning of Remington Ammunition Eliphalet Remington founded E. Remington & Sons in 1816 in Ilion, New York. He began...

  3. AR-15 Talk
    This will be my first AR, but I have sho them before. I have a mini-14 tatical for anything under 200 yrds. I like the AR platform for the accuracy it has, because I like long range shooting out to about 450-500 yrds. The bushmaster is $849 and the R-15 is $889. The bushmaster is a flat top...

And well basicly every year I step it up...

  6. 1911 Talk (formerly Colt Government Talk)
    While shooting my Remington 1911 R1 today, I noticed that sparks were coming out of the ejector port when the shell was ejected. What does this usually mean? The ammunition was Remington 230 grain JHP bulk box of 100 rounds.
  7. 1911 Talk (formerly Colt Government Talk)
    For an early birthday present my wife surprised me with a new Remington 1911 R1. I got the pistol on Thursday (January 5, 2012), over the past weekend I took the pistol out on 2 different shooting sessions. Lets just say I am not impressed. To break in the new pistol, I went to the local...

  11. Ruger Mini-14 and Mini-30
    Okay, I have owned 5 mini's over the past years, the last three were Ranch Rifles, two of which were 580 series. I really like the mini...which is why I've owned so many. I hate the lack of accuracy...which is why I have dis-owned so many. I saw when Ruger came out with a Target model with...
  12. Bolt Action Talk
    Just picked up a used Remington 700 XCR, slapped a Nikon 2.5x10x42 Monarch scope on it and a bipod and took it out for a spin. Conditions were rough with 10-20mph winds, but I was fairly pleased for my first time out. I really like this rifle and think with a little work (on my part) and some...

    I want one of these nearly identical rifles... Centerfire Rifle - Model 700 SPS Tactical - Remington Centerfire Rifles Howa/Hogue Heavy Barrel Varminter Rifles From what I have read both are reliable, accurate, and well liked. Out of the box the Howa has a reputation for being perhaps...
  15. Bolt Action Talk
    Hi fellas, I've always admired the 700, even in the basic ADL version. I can't seem to find the value for one purchased by the original owner in 1965. My Fjestad's book (2005) shows 90% at less than 2 bills. That seems way low to me, because you never see 700's of any version in the used shops...

    Remington now makes a 1911. I picked it up today $599 plus tax and background check. It has a duracoat type black semigloss finish. It came with 2 mags. A little loose, does not rattle however. Trigger pull 5-6lbs but clean. Stainless steel barrel and bushing. I have not shot it yet but I like...

    CDNN is clearing out their stock of Remington 798 and 799 bolt action rifles at really good prices, so I ordered a 799 today in 7.62x39. These rifles have intrigued me ever since I first read about them. The 798 is for the most part a pure Mauser 98 and is available in calibers from 243 to...
