Status Of America’s Gun Industry



Interesting status report from Valley Guns in West Virginia:

* * * 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

* * * 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

* * * 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…

* * * Related commentary from Bob Owens :
* * * They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock,
from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running
full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand.
It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the
FALs that were sold out. 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

* * * Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of the Statists have
done more to promote gun ownership than the NRA ever did. Well done,
