Remington was founded in 1816. Eliphalet Remington II believed he could build a better gun than he could buy. Eliphalet’s father was a blacksmith, and wanted to expand his business into rifle barrel production. Local residents often built their own rifles to save on costs, but purchased the barrel.
Eliphalet’s father sent him to a well-known barrel maker in a major city to purchase a barrel, with the mission of observing the barrel-making technique. After the young man returned home, his family added a successful barrel making operation to his father’s forge, in Ilion Gorge, New York.
He began designing and building a flintlock rifle for himself. In the fall of that year, he entered a shooting match; though he only finished second, his well-made gun impressed other shooters. Before Eliphalet left the field that day, he had received so many orders from other competitors that he was now officially in the gunsmithing business. By 1828, the operation moved to nearby Ilion, New York, at the same site which is used by the modern Remington firearms plant.
