Over the last few months STAG Arms has been in the news — and not in a good way. The company ran into a spot of regulatory trouble when the ATF revoked their manufacturing license, but it sounds like things are back on track at the STAG Arms booth here at SHOT Show . . .
According to one employee things are just peachy. “We had a bit of trouble, but we paid some fines and we’re back up and running now.” Which is PR friendly way of downplaying the fact that the company president and owner were forced to sell the business and had to fight to get their firearms manufacturing license back from the ATF.
Notably absent from the booth were many new models. According to their sales reps they’re focusing more on fulfilling their current orders and chugging through the backlog of guns rather than pushing out new SKUs, which seems like a wise move.
