We have just gotten news that Para will no longer make pistols after the first quarter of 2015. If you currently own a Para 1911 they will continue to honor the warranty. The plan is to focus on one 1911 brand, and that will be the Remington 1911. We will start seeing new Remington 1911’s but they will look more like a Para. The new Remington 1911’s will be available in various sizes from 3 and ½” barreled compacts to full size double stacked frames. The new Remington 1911’s will be announced as they begin to approach manufacturing readiness. Until then, they will not be making any announcements about the change.

It doesn't supprise me, I wonder if they'll kill the bushmaster name as well when the AR market slows down?

Probably, along with DPMS. They will eliminate product overlaps between the two brands and the remaining ones will become Remington ARs.

Makes sense to eliminate brands and duplicates.

They have basically already killed the bushmaster name. The quality has got to crap since they bought the name. Get a Windham if you want what Bushmaster used to be.
