Remington's corporate HQ is located here in North Carolina, but their factories are in New York and Kentucky. So I guess that doesn't quite count...

Nope. Columbia, South Carolina.

I forgot that Para Ordnance also has its HQ in this state, but I believe the pistols themselves are still made elsewhere. Actual weapons-manufacturing plants in this state are pretty rare - after Googling "North Carolina gun manufacturers", I've only found Inter Ordnance (who makes AKs) and Delton (an AR-15 manufacturer).

Well New Hampshire has SIG Sauer, Ruger, and Heckler and Koch. We used to have Thompson Center Arms but Smith and Wesson moved them to their factory. I think Cerebrus was involved in that.

I'm hoping to get a job at SIG Sauer, just need to finish my resume.

Calico originated in Oregon, as did Kimber before moving. In my old home state of Florida you also have everyone's favorite budget micro-9 and weird shotgun maker, Kel-Tec, and it's also the state where Para Ordnance guns are imported from Canada.

Um i dont think cerberus owns SW. Cerberus is too busy raping other good companies. What ruger lines are made there as opposed to prescott?

I hate to go off topic, but it seems your current unrelenting haterant that you work into every post is about Cerberus. What exactly have they done to ruin their acquired companies? I mean this sincerely, I have no idea what their influence is but apparently you know something, what is that?

Taking jobs away from gunsmiths in their towns who have worked their for ages, including workers local to me (bushmaster.)

Cutting a bunch of good product lines (most marlin .22 bolts have been discontinued.)

And after bankrupting chrysler i have no faith in their business skills and dont want to see a good company (remington, marlin) die out because of awful management.
