Remington Marlin H&R Brought to You by Taurus

Since the Brazilian economy is doing just fine and because private equity company is afraid to sell guns, meet the new boss:

BTW, I think a much better fit would be S&W. Quality would improve hopefully, especially at Marlin. That would make S&W a full service company.

I am hoping Ruger buys those brands.

Ruger needs the shotguns and lever guns and why not H&R as well. The main overlap is the bolt actions. I would love to see Ruger make the move. Taurus not so much.

I think it would probably work well for Taurus to get some, or many parts of Remington/Marlin/H&R...Would give Taurus a good shotgun and centerfire rifle line, as well as a good solid, well liked (at least locally here) rimfire line with Marlin.

I dont know how good a fit it would be for Ruger though. Yes, the pump and semi-auto shotguns would be a compliment, as would the lever action Marlins...With Ruger I see a huge conflict of interest with the Remington/Marlin rimfire line-up. I dont see how Ruger could keep their existing lineup and bring Marlins line-up in as well. Many of the folks who have Marlin model 60's may not be same folks who would buy a 10/22 if the model 60 is dropped, so it would be interesting to say the least. Same with Remintons bolt action rifle line.

Seems to me Smith and Wesson or Colt would be a good go. I would not mind Savage buying the companies up. I am not so sure about Taurus though.
Ruger SR1911, Colt 1911, Glock 17, Glock 21, Beretta M9, Ruger GP100, Ruger LCR, SW M&P15, Lee Enfield 303, Savage .22, Ruger 10/22. Guns the great equalizer.
