Obviously it's a little outside of Aynor,but never would have imagined they would end up with two gun manufacturing companies.Good for them.
If Ruger, Colt, Remington...etc. would just follow suit and go to more firearm friendly States.
Happily, this is an expansion rather than a move from its current headquarters and manufacturing facility right up the road from me in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. The brand has been through some tough times, and seems to have weathered them nicely.

Aynor and Cool Springs moving on up lol.Good for the community.

Remington has manufacturing facilities in Arkansas, Kentucky, and North Carolina; corporate HQ is in NC.
Ruger has manufacturing facilities in New Hampshire, Arizona and North Carolina.
Colt has an R&D facility in Florida, but all production remains in Connecticut.

Unfortunately, the Colt operation in FL has gone practically nowhere as of date. The loss of the military contract made have had some effect on that set up. My first shotgun was an Ithaca lever-action single shot, which I still have. Good stuff in its day but I have no idea of its current day products.

My first gun was an Ithaca also. A break action 410 that I still have.
I just sent my PPK-S back to Walther for an older safety recall issue that I hadn't gotten around to. I noticed the address to ship the gun was at Ft. Smith Arkansas.
Obviously some division of Walther/S&W is there?
Hey, that's Rooster Cogburn country, I can't imagine him with a PPK !
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
Own, will never sell, the Ithaca model 37 feathweight M+P 9 shot I've had since the 80's.

Sounds like if they did a repeat of the Civil War the South would have the manufacturing base this time.
Lets not forget PSA and FN both in Columbia, SC. When Colt moves out of Hartford the handwriting will be on the wall for the rest of the gun manufacturing companies in the North East!
