Talk about a blast from the past. I just noticed this thing today- it's funny to see these old posts bubble back up to the top.
I still have the gun on the wall in my apartment. It was originally my grandfather's gun, so I'm not going to part it out, and I can't bear to get rid of it, so it's really just a decoration.
I've had a couple of rifles since the one mentioned in this thread, but I've managed to avoid Remingtons so far, and I don't anticipate ever buying another. Their response just left a bad taste in my mouth.
