Yep, I've heard this. Just like Marlin is moving to Ilion, New York to the Remington plant.

It may be too soon to speculate on what's really happening but I have heard all sorts of rumors that I don't even want to think about like S&W may get rid of the entire TC line accept the Icon.
I do know that the TC custom barrel shop (aka "Fox Ridge Outfitters") is closed and has been for months now...

Not good news at all for the many who will lose or have already lost their jobs due to the closing...
