    That’s awesome, bittersweet for sure. Happy for Ronnie and his family and they deserve it. They made a huge contract with the government in 2021 and can only imagine what the terms of this sale were. My guess is those good old boys did ok! Glad they kept on and promoted the old regime to make sure those Aussies don’t screw anything up!

    Ronnie got my respect when he pulled all of his business form the Independent state of Commifornia. My man started that company with every penny he owned and turned out one beautiful rifle after another. It’s an American success story. The M107 and the MK22 are pieces of art.

    Great post AG, don’t know how I missed this! You’re on it as always. Now since you’re down that way, can you swing by the factory and send me a couple of rifles? I’m not picky but I would really like an XM500

    Ugh, make that three.

    Any of the original M82A1 (and M82A3) models would suit me nicely.

    Shoot, I'd love to go spend a few days at their facility. Drop me off at CAD/design and I'll work my way through from there.
    They're a great example of success.

    I remember watching a documentary on them years back and getting a kick out of the daughter, Angela ( I think that's correct). She could let the rounds rip downrange and looked completely comfortable doing so. I've never met the family in person, but she looks so petite.

    I wonder if they'll start up another chapter in the weapons world.

    The son is pretty much a world class shooter....correct?

    Ummm, yes. If Mr and Mrs AG hit the lottery we'll figure out a way to at least get MRADs all around. I know *Admin* will want one as well!

    So NIOA are the main firearms and ammunition importers into Australia. All my firearms back home were imported from them. Ruger, Colt, Springfield Armoury, Savage, Glock, Marlin.

    Most slabs of ammo came with a NIOA sticker on it too.

    One of the Australian politicians daughter is married to the owner or NIOA. So it is very suss that they keep winning all the military contracts.
