    I think i posted a link about this here..

    Basically if the Factory isn't bought by a certain date they wont be making anymore rifles..Looks like the Date is March 31st

    I have heard this one is just rumor though that they have tied the Winchester name up somehow so foreign companies cant use it

    Bud,

    The Winchester name and rights are still owned by Olin-Winchester, the lease agreement expires in 2007. (whoops, I guess that is stated in the article, sorry.)

    Bud, I also noticed in the link you provided, you have a BB 94, is yours a Winny or the USRAC? I came across a heck of a deal last week on a minty .375.

    There appear to be some developments, tho whether anything will come of it hard to tell.

    I won't paste a load of stuff but there was a thread on THR yesterday dealing with this - so anyone wanting to catch up take a peek.
