Over the past week I’ve been posting on new products from Remington we writers were introduced to at the annual writers seminar. Several times readers have asked about the status of the RM-380. I couldn’t say a lot at the time but with this announcement I just received details on the shipping times as well as the details of the pistol and it’s MSRP of $417.00.
One thing I did share with several readers was the fact that the RM-380 has been in full scale production for several weeks. As the press release states this micro-pistol will be in stores by November 14th. I can promise you they will be in stores by November 14th.
I can say that since the new CEO has been implementing changes, one of which I mentioned, was no new products will be announced to the public or the media until they are in production. So, when you see an article on a new Remington gun you will be able to go right out and find one as long as the distributor has done their job and ordered them in a timely manner. There will be more to come very shortly.
