Remington Arms/Ilion, NY, USA

News reports have gun and ammunition manufacturer Remington moving some or all of their production from Ilion, New York to another facility in Huntsville, Alabama. The facility in New York is an old timer with manufacturing spread over 3 floors and wooden floors, something you only see in facilities well over 50 years old. The plant has an in house heat treating department which consists of a number of batch IQ furnaces-the smallest we have ever seen with working dimensions of roughly 6″ square. Not much space but when you are heat treating firing pins you don’t need a large furnace.
