Remington Arms Company Celebrates 200 Years of American Gun Making

The Remington Arms Company celebrates 200 years of fine gun making and they mean business with the festivities.

Remington Arms Company celebrates 200 years in 2016 and they have put this little primer together to get our attention. Who doesn’t own a Remington as it is one of the most successful firearms makers ever and one of America’s oldest.

200 years of gun making is not a bad track record. It would be hard to find a serious gun owner who did not have at least one Remington gun in their safe. With famous models such as the Model 700 rifle line and 870 shotgun series, they truly are an American classic. I would bet good money on any deer camp or duck blind having at least a few Remington guns in it.

My first gun was an 870 pump shotgun closely followed by a Model 700 in 30-06 for my deer hunting. Both of those guns have brought in some great game and after all these years function as well as when I unboxed them. They are also like old friends and whenever I break them out cherished memories come flooding back of marsh and field.

For more information on Remington ‘s 200 year birthday and products see their website; you can even submit your own Remington Country story that they may put up.
