Armscor, Rock Island Armory Adding Third Manufacturing Facility, Doubling Ammo Production
Pahrump, Nevada is the home of conspiracy guru Art Bell, as well as the initial landing site for the Martians in Mars Attacks!
Armscor, popular manufacturer of a wide variety of approachable and affordable 1911 pistols and other firearms, is expanding with new ammunition and firearms manufacturing facilities in Pahrump, Nevada.
In addition to helping gun-hungry people everywhere get their hands on firearms and ammunition, their new faciities are expected to create about 50 jobs and be in full production by this time next year.
“We are thrilled with the demand for our Rock Island Armory branded products in the US,” said Martin Tuason, CEO of Armscor and Rock Island Armory. “Our new facility will give us the opportunity to increase production and reduce delivery timelines.”
Tuason continued, “This marks our third facility in the United States and represents a critical progression in growing our markets in North America.”
The new facility will also focus on research and development, designing new types of firearms with help from gunsmith Freddie Craig. Craig and Tuason developed and brought to market a new cartridge .22 TCM and guns to shoot it.
