Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Is it true they are declaring bankruptcy?

If they haven't someone is doing one heck of a spin job to make it appear as if they haven't.

If they had kept up the quality of there products more people would have bought there stuff. I had an R1 1911 junk I had to file half the front sight off becuase it hit so low. Had a model 597 rifle that had an out of battery detonation had to send it back. All the Marlin rifles that had problems when they moved there plant. The recalls on all the model 700 rifles it all ads up you lose your quality you lose everything.

The quality of the new 870's is horrible as well. It's a damn shame....

Yup my brother bought a 20 gauge and the little button piece the spring pushes on in the tube was put in backwards so it would not feed right. After a couple years he finally took it to a gun smith who fixed it and said I have saw a 100 of these with this problem.

Have heard from several sources that Rem QC has gone south for some time now--
But I took a chance and bought a RP9 due mostly to the $100 rebate Rem offered a few months ago--shortly after I submitted paperwork for the rebate,
heard Rem filed for bankruptcy and figured my rebate was long gone--Not so! Got it a few days ago--

Also, you-tube reviews are all over the map---many bad ones for the RP9--have put about 200 rounds thru mine, with no problems, albeit all I have shot is
155 & 124 grain ball--if it works well with Hydra-Shok, should make a great car gun--18 round mag is a plus.
