Status of gun industry

Attention F.B. fans: to follow will be several IMPORTANT Info updates about the status of the gun industry currently, followed by an INVENTORY UPDATE: We traveled to Texas for Industry meetings concerning the shortages, here's what we were told.

Smith & Wesson-is running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.

RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.

FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1. Remington-Maxed out!

Armalite: Maxed out.

DPMS: Can't get enough parts to produce any more product.

COLT: Production runs increasing weekly...bottle necked by Bolt carrier's.

LWRC:Making only black guns, running at full capacity...can't get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.

Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.

AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/ of 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line.


MAGPUL is behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.

RELOADERS... ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra's for reloading purposes... it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, we'll keep you posted...
We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. - Patrick Henry

Everyone needs to pool their resources and build as many stripped AR15 lower receivers as possible, as well as quality 30 round mags. Don't waste time on unregulated components, get the actual important parts done and in the hands of the American people ASAP!

The companies who forge the lowers should be running at 100% and try to ramp it up even higher by buying more equipment and workers. Completing the forgings could be outsourced to any machine shop that has an FFL.

Problem is, there are only a handful of companies that make lowers. The names that go on them are just the companies that order them to certain specs. Same with BCGs. They've all been running at capacity for months. They can't produce them any faster without massive investment in facilities, machines and operators. There's no point buying all that stuff when one of two things will happen. If no laws are passed, demand will drop back to where it was. If an AWB is passed, then all the machines they bought are useless.

Some of these massive gov't gun and ammo orders must have been instrumental in severely shorting the supply to the public....

You mean the 1.4 billion rounds DHS ordered in 2012 alone?

Crap — totally forgot to mention this little gem:

http://www.bob-owens.com/2012/12/somethi...e-tyranny/

Excerpt:
Quote:It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands , M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

Not good.

That is what really has me worried. It wasn't just the ARs and AKs. It was anything. At the local shop, people were even buying up pistols, and bolt action rifles.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin

The Mosin Nagant supply had already dried up before Sandy Hook. I was working for an FFL and even we were having trouble finding them. It's not that demand overtook a steady supply. The last dregs of what was here before Sandy Hook sold out.

Just within the past 5 years alone, the Mauser K98 supply has dried up A LOT too. I'm glad I got mine when I did for as cheap as I did even if it is a Russian captured.
