Miami gun show, an arsenal to arm yourself to the hilt
For more than two centuries, the company founded by Eliphabet Remington has gone through every possible situation, including the two extreme poles. However, it has never known more complex times than those it is going through right now.
Remington is in technical bankruptcy, and has had to resort to the umbrella of U.S. corporate law to structure its debt and satisfy creditors lurking with multi-million-dollar claims.
Contrary to what might be assumed, the arrival of a pro-gun president in the White House has not favored gun companies. Republican Donald Trump positioned himself from the outset in favor of the right of citizens to carry a gun, quite contrary to his presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, who favored stricter gun control.
The fact that Trump is pro-gun gives citizens the perception that there is no risk of tougher regulation, so they don’t buy them as eagerly. And that has been felt by manufacturers’ accounts.
How the country’s only gun factory operates
In 1912, Remington and Union Metallic Cartridge were combined into a single entity, called Remington UMC. Even today, Remington produces U.M.C. brand ammunition. In 1915, the plant in Ilion was expanded and with this expansion was consolidated into the same plant that exists today. During World War I, Remington produced weapons under contract for several Allied powers. Remington manufactured Berthier Mle 1907/15 rifles for France, Enfield Pattern 1914 for the United Kingdom, and Mosin-Nagant Model 1891 for Imperial Russia. As the war intensified, Remington’s production grew ever larger.
When the United States entered the war, Remington became deeply involved in the war effort. Notable contributions by Remington include the development and production of the M1917 U.S. Rifle, (a simplified version of the British Enfield P.14 in .30 caliber) and the development of the Pedersen device.
Late in the war, the collapse of the Russian provisional government had a serious impact on Remington’s finances. Russia had ordered huge quantities of arms and ammunition, but ran short of money to pay for the orders. It delayed payment, pointing to alleged defects in Remington’s products. When the Bolsheviks seized power during the Russian Revolution, they repudiated the contract altogether. Remington was left with huge stocks of arms and ammunition and no prospect of payment. The intervention of the U.S. Government was able to save the company from bankruptcy. Noting the explosive growth of business at the beginning of the war and the precipitous decline at the end, Remington made the decision to promote and emphasize their sporting goods line. They considered hunting products a more stable business that could help them survive future ups and downs in demand.
