Remington has just announced the purchase of Dakota Arms, a manufacturer or semi-custom and custom rifles and shotguns.

Dakota make a wide range of arms. From single shot Model 1874 Sharps reproductions …

… to high-end tactical bolt-actions.

The Freedom Group who owns Remington (which in turn, I believe, is owned by Cerberus Capital Management) notably also owns Bushmaster, DPMS/Panther Arms, Marlin, Harrington & Richardson (H&R) and New England Firearms (NEF). They are leaving no segment of the market untouched.

    Smart move, I sense this'll be the next manufacturer of US long-range sniper rifles in .338 lapua.
