What’s the one thing most gun guys and girls need now more than just about anything else? Other than Mike Bloomberg discovering the loss of his entire fortune in yet another an ill-conceived electric car venture, most gunnies need more gun food. And Armscor’s heard their call. They’ve invested $4 million in new ammo production capability. And being as responsive to customer demand as possible, they’re focusing their efforts on the the calibers people want most. “Presently, that includes .223/.556, .45ACP and .22TCM. The 22TCM ammo is exclusive to Armscor and made expressly for Rock Island Armory’s series of firearms.” Pardon me? Ammo inventories are at historic lows and Armscor’s focusing their efforts on cranking out….22TCM? Gee, if we owned an ammo factory, we’d be cracking the whip to get more .22LR and 9mm on the trucks along with that .223/5.56 and .45ACP. But what do we know? Here’s Armscor’s press release . . .
Pahrump, NV (May 2, 2013) – In the face of a national ammo shortage, Armscor USA and Armscor International have doubled their manufacturing capabilities and committed $4 million in new equipment and facilities to support shooting enthusiasts and gun owners.
“At Armscor, we recognize the inconvenience and frustration of gun owners have in finding ammunition and we are doing everything we can to push more product out the door and on to store shelves,” said Martin Tuason, CEO of Armscor International. “We are at something of an advantage in that our growth in US sales had us already looking at long term expansion so we are really accelerating our timelines.”
Armscor has facilities in Stevensville, MT, Marikina Philippines and Pahrump, NV. The company is prioritizing ammunition production based on calibers in most demand. Presently, that includes .223/.556, .45ACP and .22TCM. The 22TCM ammo is exclusive to Armscor and made expressly for Rock Island Armory’s series of firearms.
“We will be frequently updating our progress on our Facebook page to keep our loyal customers informed,” said Tuason. “We want to assure everyone that we are doing everything we can…as fast as we can…to keep our high quality products on the shelves.”
