Production Climate.....

Unconfirmed, but this is the info I came across figured I'd share....

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. Remington-Maxed* out!
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.
MAGPUL is 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 extra's for reloading purposes....it could be 6-9 months b/f things get caught up.

A word of caution....remember my thread where I refinished my friend's Ruger 10/22? He just picked up another one (a new one.) He said the quality is subpar compared to the older one (pre-craze)....it seems the manufacturers are pumping stuff out and letting QC slip a little....maybe it's best to not buy the high ticket items until this dies down...just a thought.

Right now is the time we're going to see a lot of the really bad shit come out. DPMS, Shrubmaster, DelTon, etc etc. In the coming months, the gun boards are going to be inundated with people posting about problems they have with their guns.
HOWEVER, we won't be seeing this with companies like BCM, DD, Noveske, Colt, LMT, KAC/KMC, etc.
