Really
Really?   Why would they go from one commie s___hole like Boulder to another one?   Do they have some sort of hippie evangelism plan or something?

    LWRC is in Maryland too. And now if Colt pulls up roots from CT, there's plenty of new business for everybody!

    S&W is still in Massachussetts (or are they in CT as well?), Remington in NY, and Springfield Armory in IL...

    Beretta has a warehouse in VA, I believe. They opened up when they had an argument w/ the State last time. That would be an easy move.

    I've been told that Magpul has another facility already making mags outside of CO. Also heard unconfirmed reports that IN is in their top 3 choices. But, like I said, unconfirmed.

    If you wish for peace, prepare for war.

    A battalion commander of the 23rd Regiment 2nd Infantry Division reported during Operation Cobra, the long awaited breakout from St. Lo (July 1944):

    "I have no water, I have no chow, I have no batteries for my radio, I have no communication. My men are dead dog tired. I repeat, my men are dead dog tired. I have been given an order to attack. I am about to comply with this order. End of message."

    They seem confident Magpul moving won't have any economic impact and maybe they're right that it won't affect the unemployment rate (outside of Erie anyway).  Seems odd the article doesn't mention the amount of revenue brought it the industry, or take into account how ALL of it is now headed to TX, AZ or ... wherever. 

    Though I will give NPR credit for managing to dig up the only FFL in the state who has no ARs on the shelf-- by choice.

    edit:  They did mention revenue from hunting.  I don't see too much of that going away.  While Magpul and others can move, the ecosystem that allows for hunting isn't going anywhere.

    Still not saying where.  Note: pictures of new products at link.

    Magpul Magazine Manufacturing Fully out of Colorado, New Products Left and Right

    by Max Slowik

    Following through on their promise to leave the state if Colorado were to pass new gun control laws including a magazine capacity limit, Magpul is shifting their manufacturing out of the state.

    From now on, not a single magazine will be manufactured or assembled in Colorado. ”We have started making PMAGs outside CO for the first time ever. The sights are made outside CO. We are actively moving forward with moving other items out.”

    Magpul had originally planned to include more details about the shift but it coincided with the Boston Marathon bombing, and as such, they’re waiting for a better time to talk shop.

    “We had some communications regarding our pending move and the process of choosing our new locations to put out this week, but the events in Boston make this a poor time for that, and we will hold off those announcements until later. Our support is with the residents and first responders who are dealing with the tragedy of loss and the fractured lives created by the acts perpetrated by these evil individuals. Stay alert out there … there are many in this world who wish harm on our society. Meet them with strength so as to discourage their ilk from attempting to prey on others.”

    Magpul has not disclosed where they have relocated to, although previously they said they were looking at a neighboring state.

    As frustrating as the move must be, Magpul doesn’t appear to be slowing down in any form. They’ve recently announced a commercial polymer AK-47 magazine which we expect to do tremendously well. It will be the first of a series of AK PMAGs, presumably with other calibers to follow. The first PMAG will be for 7.62x39mm cartridges.

    Magpul added that they intend to make military-grade AK MOE mags as well, with steel components similar to Bulgarian designs.

    “Also currently in development, and arriving on the heels of the AK MOE, is the next release in the PMAG AK lineup, which will be a 7.62×39 magazine with a little more ‘Bulgarian’ in it, featuring solid steel reinforcements at lockup points.”

    Simultaneously, Magpul has announced their first grips for 1911s. We hope they put together a few more designs — not that we don’t like these grips, but let’s see what they can do. These look incredibly thin and snag-free, great for concealed-carry.

    These shortly follow the announcement that Magpul is now manufacturing all-steel backup iron sights.

    Magpul is in their second generation MBUS polymer backup sights, which are a bit chunky but extremely durable.

    That being said, there’s a market for steel sights and these have one strength over polymer MBUS sights: they can be installed on railed gas blocks. Polymer sights warp and lose integrity with prolonged heat exposure.

    These sights are also click-adjustable for windage and elevation. No sight tool needed.

    Magpul is under a tremendous amount of pressure. Pressure to keep up with market demand and pressure to get their manufacturing out of the state of Colorado.

    One thing’s for certain now, Magpul works very well under pressure.

      I'm interested in the Magpul AK mags  :cool   

     Hopefully they're as good as the Bulgarian Circle 10's and would be 3 922r parts counts!!!!!
