There is a general quality trend here regardless of anecdotal exceptions like yours.
I had an 870 for years that, while it never failed mechanically, the finish was so poor that rust would build up sitting in my closet for a week. I live in the desert with little moisture in the air. This is something I would expect out in the Midwest or in coastal regions, but not a hot, dry environment inside a safe with dehumidifiers.
It got to the point where I had to store it in teflon wax lubricant filled bags to prevent the rust from coming back. Finally sold it about 4 years ago and haven't looked back.
Yep, but a Wetherby Vangaurd made in Japan kicks ass. Don't blame the Japs.
Robert Nardelli of Chrysler, who Cerberus Capital Management installed as the CEO about two years before that company filed for bankruptcy. As you likely know if you are reading Guns.com, Cerberus Capital Management owns Freedom Group, a gun making conglomerate that owns several popular brands of US firearms, chiefly Remington Arms and Bushmaster Firearms.
What many people don’t remember however is that after the stunt he pulled in D.C. while begging for taxpayer dollars, Nardelli was given a CEO position at Remington for a couple months in 2012 before distancing himself from Cerebus, but not before he drastically changed Remington’s operations.
