Manufacturer’s Weapon and Ammunition Inventory Status - Civilians Last in Line
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.
Armalite: Maxed out.
DPMS: Can’t get enough parts to produce any more product.
COLT: Production runs increasing weekly…bottle necked by 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 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 line.
On the smaller side of things, I wonder about Glock. All Glocks are still made in Austria, but they’re all assembled (for the USA) markets) in Smyrna, Ga. There are lot of Glocks out there. Fine weapons.
Around my parts, there are basically no guns and no ammunition at all. Even the “cheap” guns are gone. The people have bought everything in every caliber, and including all the “roll your own” gear.Posted by Yabu on 02/12 at 05:30 PM
Yabu, good wondering on Glock, especially in consideration of Glock’s recent order from the UK’s Armed Forces for 25K Glock 17s.Posted by John Venlet on 02/12 at 07:01 PM
Those Glocks are great guns. Most people love ‘em or hate ‘em. Funny how that is.Posted by Yabu on 02/12 at 07:19 PM
