It’s still not going away.
Yesterday Remington, a big purchaser of stocks from H-S Precision, removed all references to H-S Precision from their web site.
Tommy Millner, Remington CEO (Posted on ar15.com):
Because its thanksgiving and everyone is off, we have not made contact with HS. We have taken any reference to HS from our web site..
When you first emailed me I honestly did not recall horiuchi’s name so you caught me unawares. I also do not read the blogs so the fact there was an issue came as a surpise.
In any event, HS makes a great product and we are a large customer of theirs. Why they would pick a super controversial spokesperson is beyond me. Doing this violates pure business common sense. Early next week we will use whatever persuasive powers at our disposal to get HS to do the right thing..
Do me a favor and tell those on the bolgs that Remington and I are now fully aware of the issue, in full agreement with the outrage, and will do what we can t exert pressure on HS to reverse course.
Note to CEOs: Read Blogs. Especially the ones that cover your industry.
And a big thank you to Remington. I feel much better about my recently purchased .308 700 despite its H-S Precision stock.
UPDATE: Oregon Firearms Federation has more with links to HS Precision’s customers. It’s time to start calling the customers since HS seems intent on ignoring us.
