Should there be any other former Winchester employees of a nostalgic bent, there is a privately published, 1996 book entitled "WINCHESTER - The Way It Really Was" by Pauline Muerrle, former Factory Engraver.

Going out of business or just relocating to get rid of the older well paid work force? The story did not really say.....Will US Repeating arms soon be China Repeating arms?

Thank You, Randy

Rumor has it that the production is going to Belgium. However, that might be a guess since USRAC is owned by the Herstal Group. There has been no official announcement yet. About 200 people will lose their jobs. The Winchester name is still owned by Olin and might stay in the USA

Don't know why it should. I went to the WTNH site and copy/pasted the link into my message.

The link is to the correct site, it just looks like they are either relying on javascript to do something, and there's no time-out so if the thing never happens, the browser locks up.

I've found there are some sites that require all the bells/whistles running or they hang things up.

Ebay auctions do that often, when I run a bare-bones browser some things seem to take forever to get to go.
