From CNN News: * Once the U.S. Repeating Arms plant in New Haven, Connecticut, closes on March 31, the only new rifles carrying the famous Winchester name will be the modern, high-end models produced in Belgium, Japan and Portugal. The older models, including the famous Winchester Model 94, will be scrapped. * "The name will continue, but not with those traditional products," said Robert Sauvage, a spokesman for the Herstal Group, the Belgian company that owns U.S. Repeating Arms and the right to the Winchester name. * Herstal announced Tuesday that the U.S. Repeating Arms factory would soon close, capping 140 years of Winchester manufacturing in New Haven.

Who owns the Winchester firearms trade name Olin or FN?

The ancestor of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company was the Volcanic Repeating Arms Company. It was later reorganized into the New Haven Arms Company, its largest stockholder being Oliver Winchester. After the American Civil War, Oliver Winchester renamed the company the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. Winchester Repeating Arms Company went into receivership in 1931, and was bought at bankruptcy auction by the Olin family's Western Cartridge Company. Oliver Winchester's firm would maintain a nominal existence until 1935, when Western Cartridge merged with its subsidiary to form Winchester-Western Company; in 1944 the firearms and ammunition operations would be reorganized as the Winchester-Western Division of Olin Industries. In 1980 the plant was sold to its employees, incorporated as the U.S. Repeating Arms Company (USRAC), together with a license to make Winchester arms. Production of ammunition and cartridge components under the Winchester Ammunition Inc. name was retained by Olin, not licensed to USRAC. From 1981 until 2006, Winchester guns were made by the USRAC. When USRAC went bankrupt in 1989 it was acquired by a French holding company, then sold to an arms making cartel sponsored by the Belgian Herstal Group, which also owns gun makers Fabrique National (FN) and Browning.
