I think this is a smart move into the hunting rifle market, which S&W had publically stated they planned to get into in 2007.



I really see a lot of upside to S&W recently.

S&W acquiring Thomson Center Arms

I am happy to hear this. Glad that an American owned company is buying them, and with the S&W reputation, the Thompson guns will keep their well earned respect.
