Status of gun industry by Doug Ross @ Journal

To follow will be several IMPORTANT Info updates about the status of the gun industry currently, followed by an INVENTORY UPDATE: We traveled to Texas for Industry meetings concerning the shortages, here's what we were told. 
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 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...
