    Good links for conducting research.

    Remington old Product Catalogs

    I just found this one and it has .pdf files of Remington catalogs and other publications going back to the beginning of the 20th century so I thought I'd share. If you have similar links with useful historical info that others would be interested in, can you share them here?

    Please note and bold the contents to make it possible to scan through the posts easier. If it becomes a good thread maybe we'll stick it as a permanent reference guide?

    Refusing to conform to the left wing mantra of political correctness by insisting on telling the truth does not make you a loud mouth.
