Winchester Closes Plant, Discontinues Three Guns
When the press release hit our desk, there was a collective jaw dropping by us editors. U.S. Repeating Arms Company, which owns Winchester, announced that it would be closing their New Haven, Conn., facility on March 31. Along with this shocker is news that Winchester models 70, 94 and 1300 will cease production.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release:
Winchester Firearms will continue to see and grow its current line of Select over & under shotguns, the new Super X3 autoloading shotgun, the new Super X autoloading rifle and Limited Edition rifles. The company also plans to introduce new models in the future. There will be no change in Customer Service.
