The new owners have changed a few things... again.


Back to the argument of what "AR" actually stands for.  :nutkick:

Wonder if the new owners have any business acumen? Evrything seems to be out of stock.

Lots and lots of out of stock.  I did speak with a rep recently and he suggested the following thought.  They got dependent on outside contractors and are in the process of becoming in house once again.. I cheer that thought.  I'm tired of hearing the case of "...it's cheaper to buy from elsewhere and assemble it here.",  for the simple reason that you become dependent on too many variables.  Big man Mr. A and runner up Mr. B  use ABC machining for part 1.  Mr. A sees Mr. B quickly growing,  and feeling threatened  insists that he receive better care than Mr. B.  ABC machining now becomes a player in the enterprise.  I don't mean to be obscure I just don't want to name names.  We see it in the news today with certain ammo manufacturers.  We seen it in the gun makers realm as well.  We're inviting foreign entities to dictate our production capabilities. I call BS at this point.  When have we been held hostage in the world of production?  I never really cared for the slogan Make America Great Again.  We're already great and have been since inception.  I like our attitude.  In any event I'm upping my ante in the 308 class with a bolt gun.  I will begin by looking at Armalite and their in house production.  I realized I stood up on the soap box for a moment,  it's easy do when you come from here.
