Remington Outdoor Company informed RSR at the SHOT Show that they will be focusing on their core hunting and shooting brands – AAC, Barnes, Marlin and Remington. Bushmaster, DPMS, StormLake Barrels and Tapco will no longer be produced, with the exception of the Bushmaster BA50.
Answer: Fudd stuff, and presumably still government contracts. Might just be the plummeting costs with everyone making an MSR, but doesn't mean we don't all wish everyone would stop acquiring companies... to shut them down later. Also see: FLIR.
I cannot explain the .50 unless they got a contract for that one from someone also.
