Progress Report - October 2019

Progress report for October 1st 2019.  Sorry for the delay in updates. We have had a lot of good things going on and have failed to keep you updated and we appologize.

1. I have decided to have at least two sources for all critical parts and ideally have one of those in house. To accomplish this I have raised more than 1 million dollars and have purchased an EDM machine, heat treat furnace, a Swiss Turn machine, and four additional CNC mills. Two of the CNC mills have four axis capability and one of the mills has five axis capability. We are also hiring more machinist and are building an R&D lab with our own inhouse 3D modeling and cam system to aid us in the design and improvement of gun parts and accessories.

Progress Report - June 2019

I know it must seen like we are not making any progress but we really are. Because we are both trying to complete guns and we also have decided to move almost all production in-house. This will allow is better quality control and the ability to ramp up production. We did ship 5 Founders last week but these were with original frames.

The casting house just shipped 17 of the latest frames to heat treat. We will have those the first part of next week. If they are good we will get a follow up shipment of 200 pieces two weeks later and we will finally be on our way.

We still don't have our magazine stamping press up and going but we are working on it when we are waiting for frames. We will not hold up the guns for the magazines if you would to go ahead and get your gun and have us follow up with the new magazines

Progress Report - January 2019

January 11th we shipped the first Founder's Edition Auto Mag.

Currently we have made enough parts sets to assemble 220 Classic guns less barrels. Due to poor service and un-reliability of Grover Gun drilling we moved barrel blank production in house. The first barrel blanks should be complete in the next two weeks. At that point we can start shipping additional guns. 

Completed first barrel blanks from our in-house operation. We will test these before going to full production.

We purchased a high speed camera and are testing changes that will make the gun more liable and user friendly.

Progress Report - May 2017

Made a small number of prototype uppers. (Completed bolts, all small parts expect firing pins & springs, barrels should be complete by March 1st) This have been done multiple times and the latest version should be ready. About 8 guns will be sent out to 15 people for a "Beta Test" These people are some of the best gun designers and shooters in the country. We will take their feedback before we go into full production.

Progress Report - March 2019

It was in August of 2015 that I bought the assets of Auto Mag from the Sandford family. At the time I thought that we would take the 500 or so frames and left over parts and build them into 4-500 Auto Mags and that would be the end of this project. Obviously over time the original plan has greatly evolved to making a new and improved Auto Mag from new parts, using improved materials and manufacturing processes that mostly were not available back in the day of the original production. We also wanted to address some of the engineering issues that plagued the original Auto Mag while maintaining the original look and feel. I did not have a clue at the time what it would take in terms of time, resources and personal. If you would have told me I would have never even started but now that we have done it I could not be happier.
