Thompson was bought out by Smith and Wesson and moved TC operations to springfield ma. These 4 guys struck out on their own in TC's former hometown of Rochester NH.
I have no relationship with them, just found out about their existence.
Knight is back with quality stuff too. And that is good news. They've been good MLs for a long time.
Other than custom gun makers, who else in USA is making MLs?
NEF/HR no, REM no, WIN no, Marlin no, Savage no. CVA, and Traditions are made elsewhere. Not that they are bad guns, but it is a statement about supporting us.
TC apparently is no longer making a Hawkin, Renegade, or any other of the BP guns that they made their name on. Pity I guess that speaks to sales.
