History of Remington
Remington has a long, rich, American history. It began in 1816 when Eliphalet Remington handcrafted his first rifle barrel at his father’s forge. Shortly after he established a rife-making business, constructing thousands of guns that were sold to gunsmiths throughout America.
The first firearms Remington created were the Model 1841 “Mississippi” rifle, manufactured for the United States Army Ordnance Department, and the Jenks Breech Loading Carbines created for the government. This was just the beginning of Remington forging firearms for its country. In 1861 Remington provided pistols, carbines, rifles, and muskets for the federal army and navy during the Civil War. Again, in 1917, Remington produced military rifles, autoloading pistols, signal guns, machine guns, and more for the Allies during the First World War. During the Second World War, Remington provided more than half the small arms ammunition utilized by the Allies throughout the entire war, along with hundreds of thousands of rifles.
As the years progressed, Remington also sought to meet the needs of hunters and competition shooters. In 1950 the Model 870 was introduced, and it quickly rose in popularity. Today, it is still one of the finest pump-action shotguns ever designed. In fact, it has become the largest selling shotgun in history. Remington again made history in 1962 with the creation of the Model 700 bolt action rifle chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum. The duo remains a top favorite of hunting enthusiasts worldwide.
2020 marked a new chapter in Remington’s history. Both the ammunition and firearms divisions of the company are under new ownership, and there is a newfound determination to revive Remington’s reputation of rugged reliability and stellar accuracy. Remington’s future is as bright as their past, and shooters everywhere can’t wait to see what the company has in store.
