Just think of all the manpower and hardware it took to get one guy out here in So California, they have little chance of doing it on a scale like we are talking here. winning
I read on another site that this story had been at least partially debunked. 300 per day is not very many weapons for a manufacturer as large as S&W. I’m wondering if maybe the author merely slipped a decimal.
My greatest regret for 2012 was not picking up a Mosin Nagant M91 when my local guy had crates full of them. Plenty of time, said I. Feh. Foolish.
I guess it shouldn’t but this surprises me.
I would have guessed the shortages would go on for a few high demand guns then pretty much be over in a few weeks.
Same for ammo.
This is clearly more intense than when the ban which sunsetted first was being discussed, then passed.
While I believe this in principle, has the details been proven to be true? I know S&W’s custom shop can produce several hundred per day and when I visited the factory years ago, they were pushing out thousands so to say they are maxed at 300 per day is unusual. Small shops do that.
Something is up here.
CCI and Federal have the same ammo distributor.
Both Claim they are shipping rimfire ammo.
Oh, the distributor has the DHS contract.
Wholesalers claim they are not getting the shipments.
I believe that. 3K per day sounds more reasonable for S&W.
Shades of Paul Revere
The past year and a half I picked up a Mosin or two every gun show after reading how much the other Texas FReepers enjoyed them. Not only were they dirt cheap (as well as the ammo), they were so plentiful it was no loss reconfiguring them.
I am still seeing them around. Go to pawn shops in smaller towns around you.
It is good timing. Archangel is about to release an upgrade kit with new stock and.... wait for it... 10 round detachable magazine. I am going to be first in line for that. (yep, you read that right, detachable magazine for Mosin).
For what it’s worth, I ordered an AR lower yesterday at
The guy told me it would me ready Saturday. Rguns assembles their guns. It was $285. They do have many uppers, some in stock. They aren’t a name brand, but I can upgrade later. Mainly just wanted one now.
I am not affiliated nor have any interest in their company. Just passing this on for info.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Yes but did you notice the supply chain issues. This may be true.
Guns aren't built on automobile-style assembly lines. Each part of each firearms is machined or cast individually. Each gun is assembled individually.
Thanks. Good link. Surprisingly there are lowers out there available. The average folks who are grabbing up ARs don’t want to build. I picked up a Red Jacket uni 5.56 lower back in December. Haven’t decided my full build yet for that.
This is going to turn into another Mosin thread isn’t it? LOL. Doesn’t it always. :->
