Remington moving AR-15 and 1911 production

Remington is moving production of  AR-15s and 1911 pistols out of Illion to the new Alabama facility this summer.  Predicted job loss of 100-150 with no guarantee of jobs in Alabama for existing Remington employees.

Forbes gets it half right with their headline, “America’s Oldest Gun Maker Thumbs Its Nose At A Two-Faced Senator.”  No word from Gov. Cuomo yet on this.
