Remington Defense, a branch of Remington Arms, Inc., is now offering some products to the general public.
In a turn of good news for Remington fans, the company has announced that it will now offer several new guns for sale to the general public. The company will release several different gun models for purchase.
According to the Remington press release,
Remington’s Defense Division is comprised of a highly-specialized team of former U.S. Special Operations personnel whose mission is to design and build the best firearm-based weapon systems in the world, and to sell those weapon systems to the U.S. Military, law enforcement agencies in the United States, and allied nations around the world. The Division has its own dedicated team of research and development engineers as well as its own dedicated unit of manufacturing personnel who do not perform any work at Remington except for work in support of the Division. This means that the firearms manufactured by the Division embody the utmost level of quality as well as the most advanced technology available today. Never before have firearms manufactured by the Division been sold on the consumer market.
Initial offerings from Remington Defense available to consumers will include the following models – R4GP (Remington Gas Piston) Carbine, R4 Carbine, PSR/MSR (Modular Sniper Rifles) and M2010 (US ARMY replacement for the M24 Sniper Rifle).
Before you get too excited, I should warn you of the prices that these guns will run you. The highest end model being released, the MSR/PSR modular sniper rifle system, will run you over $30,000. That would buy a lot of really nice guns. On the lower end of things (if you can call it that), the Remington R4E AR-15 will have an MSRP of $2,250.
If you happen to have an extra $30,000 lying around, here is your chance to spend it in one fell swoop. I think I’ll just admire the pictures.
