How the NRA exerts influence over Congress
REPORT FROM GUNS & AMMO MAGAZINE:
S&W: 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.
Remington: Maxed out!
Armalite: Maxed out.
DPMS: Canít get enough parts to produce any more product.
COLT: Production runs increasing weekly...bottle necked by lack of bolt carrierís.
LWRC: Making only black guns, running at full capacity...canít 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/over 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line.
MAGPUL: Behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.
RELOADERS: ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extraís for reloading purposes... it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, weíll keep you posted...
Related commentary from Bob Owens:
They didnít know when theyíd be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers are running full-bore, but canít come close to keeping up with market demand. It isnít just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that are sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, and Enfield .303s are gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagantsóof which every gun store always seemed to have 10-20óare gone. So is their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. Iíve never seen anything like it.
Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years is gone. This isnít a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.
Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of the Statists have done more to promote gun ownership than the NRA ever did. Well done, Democrats!
