Not exactly unexpected.  Nothing seemed to be going well for them.

I was thinking of that BUT Eric has stated he has moved on. I would LOVE to see a smaller speciality company take over the R9 production. Anyone else thinking Bond Arms? ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

LOL ~ Karl and I were discussing this situation about Remington just last night whilst sitting in nice recliners, feet up, with a cup of fresh brewed bean coffee in my man cave garage looking at two vintage motorcycles and the other museum things on display around the garage. We both said: Nah.  lol
We are quite happy where we are in life right now . . . . . . For now.  ;-)

Hi Eric,

No. You have paid your dues. You made the best pocket gun EVER and deserve your 'kick back time'...............however someone like Bond Arms could use a part time advisor if they decide to pick up the R9.

Kevin, I suspect that Eric and Karl, who engage fully, would not do well as "advisors"....put them in charge and it would work!

Wonder if the RM380 will become classics like the R9's are?

A lifetime warranty is only as strong as the company that offers it.

I'm doing what I can to fulfill ours when I can. . . . . . and we're not even a business any more.  ;-)
