    Sounds like they're moving back to someplace in America. Good for them!

    The state government will be proud and use it as a badge of honor. Good for Stag

    Stag only built 10,000 rifles?

    That seems pretty low.

    I like Stag too as far as simple AR stuff, like Colt but without the upcharge. If I wasnt so invested/standardized in Aero M5 Id like to try a Stag 10.

    i karma'd my stag pinned stock off here a while back.

    when i bought my stag, there was an issue with the hand guard. stag sourced them out but they over-nighted me a replacement as did the hand guard manufacturer. when i called customer service, the company president answered the phone if you can believe it. this was the guy that was disposed a few years later after atf caught them with their pants down over the several completed rifles that had no serial numbers on them. anyway, nice guy, we chatted for 15-20 minutes. seemed to really be tuned in to the customer getting a decent rifle for a reasonable price. also said stag made parts for govt. contracts but i couldn't get him to elaborate.

    And FN is in SC.

    First thing I saw when I landed in Columbia and got out of the airplane, a huge FN sign, right at the gate. Loved it.

    Not nearly enough for CT to care. Just not huge industries. I'm betting when ring companies left Attleboro 30 years ago it was a bigger impact at the time than this is.

    Tru-dat. And the labor is high. LOL

    It's one of a billion AR companies now. Hard to get any traction.

    eff CT and their nanny-state bullshit. Let viable companies leave, and let the state collapse and burn for their governmental idiocy.
    of course, i feel pretty much the same way about MA....just hope I can finish my sentence here before the fall actually happens

    Unless my memory fails me, they were a subcontractor of Colt for at least a while, which wouldn't surprise me since they (were) both in CT.

    JayMcB you are correct they were the contractor for Colt back around 2011-2012. however Colt got a new CEO that didn't want a local competitor building there rifles so he canceled the contract. It was just one more stupid short sided business decision like many others that has plagued Colt over the years.

    Stag was a spin off of Continental Machine (IIRC owners of CM&T son started stag) which was bought up by white wolf capital? No idea who they are.
    CM&T makes all sorts of AR parts for many other companies.
    Now if CM&T decided to pack up a leave that might have some impact but as long as those with deep pockets keep moving to CT and buying up tbe properties CT.gov will not care about gun manufactures leaving.

    Good news for sure, but I might have used a different term than "vibrant community" in the press release.

    The difference is that S&W got up and running to build in house Colt did not.
