So I just saw that Sig has filed for bankruptcy in Germany. I wonder if this changes any in the USA. Probably not?

BREAKING: SIG Sauer Germany Closes Down
https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2020/06/05/breaking-sig-sauer-germany-closes-down/

Note that...

"SIG SAUER, Inc. operations in the U.S. will continue business as usual. The U.S. based division, headquartered in Newington, New Hampshire, has over 2,300 employees throughout 9 facilities in New Hampshire, Arkansas and Oregon where the company designs and manufactures firearms, ammunition, optics, suppressors and air guns. Further, in New Hampshire, the company operates one of the most advanced training facilities in the world, SIG SAUER Academy."

Best regards,

Bob

Sig in NH is right by New England Dragway. Unfortunately, the Summernationals aren't coming to the Northeast, but last I saw Sigs sign was still there.

No more German made Sigs . well theres still HK
Actually....
I believe part of Sigs abandoning of Germany was over hostile treatment by the government launching never ending probes into violations of German/Euro export rules.
Top execs have had charges filed against them.
HK has had the same thing happen. HK has also seen a surge in operations and manufacturing transferred to the United States.
If the Germans are smart they might see the regulations and red tape are driving out their gun industry. But maybe that’s the goal anyway.

They can all move to Texas.

If you ever get a chance to take a class or attend a match there, jump at the chance.
It's a world class shooting venue in a huge property and beautiful setting.

I know it’s off the subject, but I recently learned that Barretta is the oldest manufacturer in the world that is still in operation today. I believe what I read said that it started sometime in the 1500’s. I’m sure they have weathered every kind of economic downturn there is.

I thought Sig Sauer was originally a Swiss company that eventually combined with a German company, and they fairly recently built some plants in the US (headquartered in New Hampshire). I definitely could have that confused somehow? But now the German company has gone belly up, the Swiss part of the company is still hanging on somewhat, and, perhaps by default, it's basically an American company now? I'm corn-fused?

We got the news today, that Fiocchi is coming to Little Rock and building an ammo plant!! Thanks to Governor Asa Hutchinson's hard work courting them!
You’re in Hazen..? I used to live in Lonoke County, not far from there. Live further north, inside the Jim Kress WMA now. Welcome, fellow Arkie. :)

Let’s hope these terrorists/protesters avoid setting fire to ammo plants. I’ve never been to one, but I would guess they require a lot more security than other businesses.
