Took a look at the Remington website today.I was shocked.They are marketing an AR platform rifle "tuned" for the hunter.Can you believe that? A big name American firearms manufacturer is taking a "black rifle" and customizing it for availability to the general public.In todays over the top, political correctness,form over substance,sheep are more important than sheepdogs society,this is pure heresy!!! Remington is not only providing one version of the R-15 VTR rifle,but THREE versions. How dare they!!! You can get the rifle with a 22" fluted barrel or a carbine with a 18" barrel or the same carbine with a collapsible/ adjustable stock.All versions come with camouflaged stocks,picatinny rail to mount your favorite style of optics,drilled and tapped forearm to add an accessory rail if you choose to.They come with a 5 round magazine for hunting but will accept any after market high capacity AR magazine.You have a choice of .223 remington or .204 ruger calibers.Geez,who do these guys think they are,Americans? Seriously folks,all sarcasm aside. The point of my post is not to trumpet a new product as the latest and greatest but to give credit to Remington for having the brass balls to basically tell the anti-assault rifle,anti-black rifle,anti-gun crowd to "go pack sand".Who knows if these rifles will be banned when the next Congress is elected,who knows if these rifles will make it in the targeted market.But I give Remington a big thumbs up for not waiting on the fence post to see which way the winds of political correctness and ignorance will go.I like their "Damn the torpedoes,full steam ahead!" attitude in bringing a legal product to a legitimate market.I believe the same can be said for Smith&Wesson and their M&P rifle.Kudos to both.OK,I'll get off the soapbox now!
