Due to financial trouble, winchester is closing its New Haven Conn. plant. The company said that it was losing $1 million each month the plant was open and had no choice to close it. This will end production of Model 94, Model 70 rifles, and Model 1300 pump shotguns. I think winchester is in for one hell of a bumpy ride over the next few years. Those Models represent everything the average shooter associates with the Winchester label. One of their spokesmen said that they would continue to develop the remainder of their product line which consists of smome other rifles including a new autoloading rifle, their existing line of autoloading shotguns, and their line of Select O/U shotguns.
