ArmaLite Acquired by Strategic Armory Corps

Strategic Armory Corps has announced the acquisition of ArmaLite, Inc., the original developer of the rifle that has since become known as the "AR."

Strategic Armory Corps (SAC) has announced that it has acquired ArmaLite, Inc. ArmaLite is a leading manufacturer of a complete line of semi-automatic rifles, including the M15 and A-10 lines, and an expanding line of advanced bolt-action rifles in a wide range of calibers.

The ArmaLite Division of the Fairchild Engine and Aircraft Company was the original developer of what has become known simply as the "AR." There have been many variations of the original rifle, and today's ArmaLite produces some of the highest quality firearms in the market. ArmaLite will continue to operate out of its facility in Geneseo, Ill., which houses approximately 90 personnel.

Strategic Armory Corps manufactures precision bolt action rifles under the name Surgeon Rifles, high quality firearm suppressors under the name AWC Silencers, and match grade ammunition.

Mark Westrom, the seller of ArmaLite, will remain as an investor in SAC and will serve on its board of managers.
