    Thanks for the comments, all true. While RemUMC was also mfg'ing firearms, what I meant to conclude was that many associate RemUMC with making 'just' ammo and RemRand with making typewriters and "Remington" proper with making the guns. An oversimplification that obscures the true history.

    From Wikipedia:

    "In 1865, Remington incorporated into a stock company, and in 1873 began a new venture, producing Remington brand typewriters. Remington sold the typewriter business in 1886. The typewriter company eventually became Remington Rand, and the firearms business became Remington Arms Company.

    "In 1888, Remington was purchased by Marcus Hartley and Partners, a major sporting goods chain who also owned the Union Metallic Cartridge Company in Bridgeport, Connecticut. The Bridgeport site became the home of Remington's ammunition plant. In 1912, Remington and Union Metallic Cartridge were combined into a single entity, called Remington UMC. Even today, Remington produces U.M.C. brand ammunition."

    With a cursory search I found the following information:

    On Wednesday, January 13, 2010, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for ERPC. This trademark is owned by RA Brands, L.L.C., 870 Remington Drive, Madison, NC 27025.

    And Remington says the pistol is MADE IN THE USA
