ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Remington Outdoor Co. has provided a more concrete timetable on closing its military rifle factory in St. Cloud.

In a letter to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, Remington says it will eliminate 34 jobs in September and another 34 early in January.

The company is consolidating manufacturing at a new factory in Huntsville, Alabama.

The St. Cloud factory produced AR-15 rifles for the military.
