Vista owns Federal, not surprised that they pick up the lion's share of the ammunition business. Not totally shocked that Sierra grabbed the Barnes portion, either.

Ruger buying Marlin is interesting, cornering even more of the rimfire market. Hopefully the lever guns will be up to snuff.

Franklin Armory is probably most known for the binary trigger it produces, they produce ARs but I've never held one.

Kalashnikov variant owners will be happy that Tapco lives again.

JJE has most of its portfolio in Palmetto State Armory, DPMS and AAC makes a lot of sense. Not very excited they got the H&R brand, but time will tell on that one.

Am I misunderstanding this, or does Roundhill now own the Remington brand portion of the firearms business? I'm not familiar at all with them, and if I'm looking at the right company they're a global investment firm.

After reading through the hundreds of pages in the court documents, it looks like this Roundhill Group is probably not the one that most articles are referencing. The agent on the documents is a Scott Soura, who has used the name Roundhill frequently for multiple LLCs that spring up for a bit and dissolve - usually in Nevada. Guessing this is a shell for someone else acquiring it.

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving company. When you make and sell junk, what else would you expect. They also ruined Marlin and who knows what is going to happen with H&R. No tears shed here.

Regarding Roundhill's plans for Remington firearms. I'm optimistic....cautiously optimistic. Although with the rise of Bergara, it might be a moot point. Bergara has pretty much put out the product(s) and upgrades that Remington should have, all on the 700 footprint.

Since Federal has lost the Lake City deal to Winchester now, buying the Remington ammo business seems like a very good move by Vista.

I could care less about the Remington name but to act like it’s a good thing for a company to go under is pretty stupid to say, there are a lot of people who will lose their jobs over this who did nothing wrong it was the decision makers of the company who ran the business into the ground and unfortunately it’s the everyday workers who will Be most negatively impacted by this and many will lose jobs that’s how this kind of thing works. I have no loyalty to Remington and am disappointed with the one a Remington firearm I purchased. But to act like it’s a good thing when the biggest losers will Be the workers who did nothing wrong and will most likely lose jobs. Just my 2 Cents

Well, I like what I'm reading in the article. I guess we'll see.
