The freedom group has had a culture of cost cutting with their brands that has had some effect on the quality of some products. Remington has been hit with many of them.
Various Ammunition recalls
Marlin, also under Freedom Group saw their QC plummet for a time with problems such as receiver to barrel mating issues, canted sights, rough actions that sometimes won't cycle, and poor wood fit and finish.
Bushmaster also had to recall all the ACR rifles at one point.
Can freedom arms come out with a good gun? Yep. Do they sometimes rush things out the door to make money? Yes.
