    M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the

    Remington-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

    AMMO: Every caliber is now allocated! We are looking at a nationwide

    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 before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak
    news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned,
    we'll keep you posted...

    They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from
    magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore,
    but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It wasn’t
    just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that
    were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era
    M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every
    last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always
    seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free
    space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years
    was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because
    they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war!
