Re: Do you know who owns some gun companies
I buy my rifles from a more freedom minded group than what owns some American companies. Bill Ruger says no man needs more than a 10-round magazine. Winchester is owned by the FN Euro Belgians. Ditto for Browning. Most of what FN makes they will not sell to civilians. Remington quality is slipping lately, per longtime Remington fans I meet.
CZ, of the Czech Republic. Good enough for Russian Special Forces.....and they have no problems selling to American civilians. None of that "sales to military and police only" crap that I see over at Sako website (owned by Beretta).
Yep, Scheels has a nice M40 looking sniper rifle made by CZ on the new gun rack....and CZ prices them right and gives you an adjustable hair trigger and tough scope rings in the deal.
And if you weren't supposed to have it, some dude named Ivan or Sergei is selling it out of the trunk of his Lada station wagon somewhere, if you ask around a bit.......
My CZ 75 is the AK-47 of pistols, the most produced and widest distributed M&P pistol in the world....and it does nothing but rock hard and never a problem in 18 years of service. CZ.....it's owned by those who make excellent firearms at affordable prices.....all I need to know. No CZ centerfire rifle I ever owned printed less than 1/2" groups at 100 yards and I have yet to have a single problem after 18 years of CZ ownership.....5 firearms in total. You hear the same story from a lot of CZ owners.
Before I ask who owns a firearms company, I ask whether or not I'm gonna get taken if I buy from them.
