Thursday, May 02, 2013
Pahrump, NV – 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.”
