These competitors were a bit late to the party, 1976-79, and never really cut into GRRW’s business. GRRW had a backlog of orders right up to the end. At least during the late-1970’s and early-1980’s, the market seemed big enough for all of them.
Ithaca may not have seen the sales volume they were expecting or the profit margin may have been too small–something caused them to get out after approximately 18 months of production.
Uberti continued to make their Hawken rifle well into the 1990’s, discontinuing it when the Hawken craze was replaced by the Cowboy Action Shooting craze.
