And Smith and Wesson just announced a move to Tennessee. The folks in Massachusetts told Smith and Wesson that they were not welcome anymore.

Did Remington leave Huntsville, Alabama?

Remington went bankrupt and closed their facility in Huntsville. The facility has since been sold to a real estate investment firm and will not be reopening as Remington.

The latest issue of American Rifleman announced that the Remington factory in Ilion, NY, has recently re-opened under new ownership and has commenced shipping Model 870 shotguns. Other former Remington models will follow soon.

I wonder what historical treasures will come to light with the recent moves and activity?

In 2016, Mass. State AG re-interpreted the state AWB ( a mirror of the federal one) to prohibit all AR and AK style rifles made after 1994. This effectively ended private sales of post-94 weapons. It was litigated all the way to SCOTUS, which declined to hear the case. Now, the state legislature has a bill pending to end manufacture of any AR's within the commonwealth. Sadly, I'm surprised it took S&W so long to leave. Troy Industries is also on the way to TN. PTR Industries (G3 clones?) left Hartford CT some time ago. Savage Arms in Westfield is still hanging on, but they don't make any handguns or AR's. Kahr in Worcester is doing well. The geographic and political polarization continues. . ..

Bring it on! More jobs for the south.

So generations of New Englanders proudly and patriotically worked in the "military industrial complex" here in the CT River Valley. Smith and Wesson, Springfield Armory, Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, Barnes ANG base, and Westover ARB. Countless others. Unfortunately, one by one they are being sacrificed on the alter of ideology by politicians in Boston and Hartford. There's a dedicated Republican minority in opposition, but it's only 20-30% of the population. Not enough to change policy.

Expect to see a decline in quality as some of the 'legacy' people will not make the move and the tribal knowledge is lost. Hopefully the Georgians will fill the gap quickly and show the same passion.
