A senator actually doing something constructive!
I doubt it will work. Its not like they are just closing because they are tired of being in business. There has to be some financial reason
It's sad. So much firearm history happened in CT.
I figure someone will buy it before too long, there's still money to be made with the Winchester line.
Hell, or buy it and start a new line.
Dodd's a tool and I think all the gun manufacturers left in CT should move to states that don't tamper with their citizen's firearms rights.
Winchester doesn't actually really make much of anything firearm-wise anymore. It won't be a big loss. Olin will still be making the ammunition that has had Winchester's name plastered on it, so no fears about that.
Yes they do
Nothing worth actually having.
yeah, because if it doesn't appeal to you then it doesn't appeal to anyone.
I wish I would have had the cash to get a .338WM Supergrade before they became a bitch to find.
well obviously its not appealing to too many people, hence the reason they are closing down
The old colt factory in hartford is a disaster area too.
Ha. The words from my mouth.
You're right, no body wants them, but as soon as there was news of a closing they started flying off shelves. The Model 70 is a great design, Winchester is just fucking stupid when it comes to marketing. The main reason is the stupid fucking short/super short mags, the only one of which that actually did well is the .300. Couple that with the worthless unions and the fact that they're in Conneticut, and you've got a losing proposition.
