    Heard on the local news this morning that Winchester's will be manufactured in Asia. I didn't catch a lot of the details but I'm sure there will be more coverage. Its a hot issue in CT

    Didn't some Japanese make some of the Winchester rifles as long as 20 years ago?

    there has been a few of the Winchesters made in Japan, and it looks like it going to happen again. I have had a Few Jap made guns and tehy are some of the nicest ones to boot.

    I have had a Howa thats a Tack drive and its a Jap made ,.

    So if it takes a Jap to make the Winnys again so be it .

    I'd read in an article even before Winchester closed it's facility, that a company in Belgium was going to manufacture the new Winchesters. I guess we'll see when it happens who's making them.
