Gun Control

Gun Control - This is a report from "Guns and Ammo" Magazine that indicates the current status of firearm production and the availability of ammunition and reloading components:

  • S&W: 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 lack of 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 nationwide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/over 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military, followed by L.E., and civilians are third in line.
  • MAGPUL: 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 extras for reloading purposes. It could be 6-9 months before things get caught up.

    The Anti-Gun crowd has done more to promote firearm ownership in the United States than the NRA and all pro-gun factions combined!
