    Question Flexsteel

    I'm thinking about buying a flesteel Richardson rocking recliner. Model # 1261-510
    Any comments good or bad? Does anyone know the type of reclining mechanism used in this chair?

    There are not many different types of reclining mechanisms any more. Basically there are 2 major producers, Leggett & Platt and Hickory Springs. Between them these two companies have pretty much bought out most of the small producers over the years.

    In many cases they simply stopped producing the excellent products those small companies had developed. The result is that furniture manufacturers today have a relatively small selection of reclining mechanisms available at the higher quality levels.
