More from Remington on NBC’s Attack on Remington Arms & The 2A

Madison, NC –-( continues to attack Remington and the firearms industry through sensational and factually inaccurate reporting.

On April 11, 2012, Brian Williams again demonstrated NBC’s anti-gun agenda with the claim that the Model 870, Model 1100, and other Remington firearms have a design flaw.

That claim is demonstrably false and Remington stands fully behind the safety and reliability of the most popular shotguns in the world.

It wasn’t enough for NBC to attack over 20 million Remington firearms; they also called the Second Amendment into question by suggesting that there is a need for increased government regulation of firearms.

Model 870 and 1100 owners know the truth – these shotguns are used extensively under the most demanding conditions. Tens of billions of rounds have been fired through these firearms, which are valued for their performance and durability by millions of hunters, shooters, law enforcement, and military personnel who have relied on Remington.

As the basis for its attacks, NBC continues to rely upon paid “experts” who have been repeatedly hired by plaintiff’s attorneys to testify against Remington and at least 16 other firearms manufacturers. The facts show that the Model 870 and 1100 are two of the most reliable shotguns ever produced – only one lawsuit has been filed in the last seven years and no litigation is pending against the trigger mechanisms of these firearms.

Deceptively editing and ignoring readily available documents and video evidence to drive NBC’s agenda is an all too familiar tactic. Remington stands by the reliability and safety of its firearms and will fully respond to NBC’s attempt to disparage these iconic American products.

I've never had any issues with the ones I've owned, but am going to inspect and clean the just to be safe. As should be done with any firearm. The truth of the matter however, is even if they did fail, no one should have ever been injured. There is safe gun handling and then there is gun handling by the ignorant. Always treat every firearm as if it were loaded, even if you know its not and never point a weapon at… Read more »


Brian Williams does not have an anti gun agenda! There has been some deaths and accidents where the guns go off with the safety on. I don't see Remington taking any responsibility or trying to fix the problems, even though they have been given some resolutions. I see you don't want to make changes which will cost Remington money and that is all I see.
