    The ammo is produced by Olin, not USRAC; they just own the name.

    Sad to say but I've handled some of there recently made lever rifles(model 94?) and wasnt all that impressed with the fit and finish on them, marlins better made, fucking unions killed them.

    Because Ruger still makes guns that fit well, shoot accurately, and of good quality. :dunno:

    they better continue to make WWB ammo. or im going to be pissed.

    i think someone should have there spouse shoot them in the leg with a winchester firearm than sue the company. dont ask for money, tell them you want the manufacturing rights, thats it.

    Like I said, Olin produces ammo, not US Repeating Arms. For example you'll have short mags and what not still coming out, just no winchester rifles for them.

    Basically, I like winchesters but the quality is so-so; moving production to the Miroku plant in Japan (where most brownings are made) would actually be an improvement.

    Ruger 77s are consistently one of the most inaccurate factory guns you can get. I'm not saying they're all bad, but their barrel making process leaves something to be desired.

    Anything from the custom shop is considered high-end, they do alot of nice Model 70s. Featherweights and what not are obviously not high-end though.

    I'm happy with my Winchester 1300. I can't say I have much interest in any other products of theirs...but it was fun while it lasted I suppose.

    Hopefully. March seems like its a bit closer for something like that though. That and you would assume Winchester would have been talking to someone already about selling themselves. I really don't think hey have a bad product line...just maybe a bit limited compared to others.
