I forgot Winchester also.S&W in recent years has made great progress in the alloys that they used. Last I heard they were making quality products for civilians that are mostly handguns. Colt and Remington were being run more by people with MBAs and no experience in the hunting blind or shooting range. Colt for many years has sought military contracts and was not so interested in selling guns to the civilian market. Last I heard FN beat them out of the M4 contracts. Remington swallowed up a lot of companies and turned out inferior products. Now Remington is bankrupted.
I have not seen anything interesting or innovative from S&W. The one time a shot a S&W M&P civilian product I was utterly disappointed.
Nothing I can't get better from a CZ or HK and Sig ( though I dislike Sig shipping their guns with one mag then overcharging for other mags ).
Last I heard S&W are going to start a line of clothing or something like that.
There really has been no R&D. No PR, no YouTube channel aimed at instilling pride into younger generations of Americans about their gun culture.
No promotion of their traditions.
Why do I have to go to the Kalashnikov Media channel to enjoy amazing gun videos of a company promoting gun greatness ( whether you like AKs or not, they have the PR ) that is not even American?
