Home Roll Call Related Info Log of Events Eagle's Nest

Location: Remington Arms, Ilion, NY
Dates: April 4, 2008
Notes: Our thanks again to the generosity of the good people at Remington for letting us learn about this historic operation.

This is always a fascinating tour, and it's interesting to notice how much the place continues to evolve.

For me, one of the most stunning steps in the whole manufacturing process is the creation of the barrel itself.  It starts out as a relatively short bar of metal with the hole drilled down the length of it, and then a massively strong machine grabs each end and stretches it out to its full intended length.
