Remington Arms Company
Remington Arms Company can be traced all the way back to 1816 when Eliphalet Remington II hand-crafted his first rifle barrel. The company achieved success with a series of government contracts manufacturing arms for the United States military. In 1856, Eliphalet was joined by his sons and together founded the E. Remington and Sons Company. Following the end of the Civil War, the company began to shift its focus increasingly toward manufacturing arms for civilian and sportsman use, and to more diverse markets. In 1874, Remington produced the first effective typewriter in 1874 and in 1921 expanded into cutlery. The company was also the first to introduce the concept of game loads for shotgun ammunition. To date, they remain a relevant and innovative arms company.
