I think that they might have gotten shut down by Remington because of their bankruptcy?

IIRC they were bought by the same company that bought Remington Firearms. During the whole bankruptcy deal

God damned shame. Dakota made fine rifles.

It is, I have bought a couple more since I posted this, I am hooked and the prices are clearly not coming down.

I have a Dakota model 76 in .375 H&H I wanted more information on before I sell it. It's engraved with a bear and was part of a Dallas Safari Club edition. I contacted a Gun Shop in close proximity to the original factory and this was the reply I received.

"Dakota Arms was sold last year. Park West Arms bought them and they are just getting up and running."

I saw something posted about that in another forum. I made a thread on here too to let others know. I hope ParkWest does a good job. Maybe they will even make a magnum length actioned rifle I can afford haha.

I sent an email to the address on the web site and it bounced .. I'm hoping they make it. And I really hope they have all of the history on the firearms made in the past.

I don't think they are fully up and running yet. They have widgets for social media pages, but they lead to dead ends. I hope they make it as well and they do right by the customer.

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
