Bourjaily: Major Gunmakers Moving to Idaho?

By Phil Bourjaily

Here’s a good rumor to chew on. Will Idaho be home to one of our major gunmakers?  Much as South Dakota attracted gun and ammunition makers like Dakota, Black Hills, Corbon, A-Square and others, Idaho is actively courting the firearms industry. It is, after all, an extremely gun-friendly state, and it doesn’t hurt that it offers tremendous outdoor recreation as well.

Idaho is considering a new industrial park built specifically with gunmakers in mind, with possible features including – get this --  a mile-long underground range. According to this story, Idaho is competing with Tennesse and Texas for one particular maker about to change address – either Ruger, S&W or Remington – according to this story:

I have no inside knowledge of which of the three companies named is planning a move, so you are free to speculate. But think about it: your Model 700, your Model 77 or your Model 29 could come with the words “Made in Idaho” stamped on the barrel.

*   *  *

In a tangentially related story, one Idaho company has made the unusual decision to switch from making semiconductors to shotguns. Advanced Precision of Meridian, Idaho, having lost a big semiconductor client, is going into the shotgun business in partnership with Legacy Sports of Nevada, importer of Verona and Escort shotguns and Howa rifles.

According to Legacy CEO Gene Lumsden, Legacy will import half the parts from Turkish maker Hatsan, who makes Escort shotguns, with the other half being made in Idaho, where the guns will also be assembled.

There will be a pump first, then a semiauto, both geared to the LE/military market with the first guns to be made by November.

It makes sense to me. With sprawl, the east is slowly becoming harder and harder to find places to shoot or hunt. I wouldn't be surprised if soon the major hunting tools east of the Mississippi will be Xbows and "adult" air rifles.

I hope they do...it would be nice if they looked north of Boise as well...Saw Mills have all closed down in North Central Idaho thanks to the economy, lots of skilled guys that know how to work, along with being outdoorsmen, and low cost of living, along with more public ground than any other place in the lower 48....

Wow, just when I thought I had baught my last gun (an 870 for turkey) this spring, here is another adventure. If I could get a nice custom-like rifle, say, a 7mm-08 from someplace like Idaho I might just do it to say that I did. Nice.

jjas, you're so right about us losing places to shoot & hunt. The places where I learned to shoot are now all suburban neighborhoods. I hope you're wrong about Xbows & air rifles, but it sure does seem like we're headed that way. P.S. I agree--Idaho would be a good location for gun makers.

oh ive been thinking about a hatsan built "marine" 20 ga, and as far as i know theire the only ones making a stainless 12ga 3,5 inch semi.. if only remington was more inventive and coated theire 870`s ultimags with a coating making them "marine" id probably buy them, but this is known technology and not complicated at all. why the heck do the known firearms manufacturers provide us with crap when we want that extra edge???
im friggin dumbfounded.. only ruger makes truly stainless guns, so why the heck didnt they ever make a pump with a thumb safety in 12ga 3,5 inch marine??"???? i thinking a 9`shot pump 12 ga 3 inch is the closest im ever gonna get, and ive held off for 6-7 years now.. GIVE US WHAT WE WANT, NOT WHAT U WANNA GIVE US:P

Gritz,
What is the old saying? "Be careful what you ask for, you may get it". Custom rifle maker supreme, John Bolliger is located in Pocatello, Idaho. He will be happy to craft a rifle for you, anywhere from $5000 to $40,0000. That is a chunk of change for a "huntin gun'.

I have an idea for a gun, happy myles that would fit any hunt available in one single gun, and at precent costs could be massproduced and distributed wildly at less than 1500 dollars with a nifty profit for the manufactors. but ill never sell it to the highest bidder cos gunmanufacturers are scared of what change making one single gun that would fit any hunting style or species less than bear in one single massproduced weapon:P
with a proper payment i could hunt my entire life with just a representational cost to the manufacturer. kinda like michael kalashnikov:P

I proudly own a 375 H &H made by Ike Ellis ages ago. The rifle has has seen every inch of hard times and adventure around the world. It was the only rifle I fired on my first African safari, taking 20 odd animals big and small. An Alaskan Brown Bear in a snow storm. Most recently, the jungles of West Africa. It is an old friend.

Im so sorry to hear of Ike's passing. Another legend gone, but not forgotten.

I'd venture that Remington is looking to get out of New York. They've been there for 193 years, but New York has gone crazy with taxes, and politics. President Obama has made no secret that he wants NY Governor David Patterson (D) to withdraw from the upcoming election, because Obama doesn't think Patterson can win it. Obama has stated he wants New York to be one of his forerunner states for his policies, and he needs one of his allies to be Governor in order to get it done. If I were a gunmaker there, I'd be looking for friendlier territory, too.

If I may add something to my previous comment. Having these facilities in VA would put them within Eyesight and spitting distance of DC Since part of VA is in DC as well. Only the Potomac is its major border.

How much DC resident a$$ would that chap? And think of the revenue it would bring since textile factories lost defense contract yrs ago and the tobacco industry took huge hits thanks to anti tobacco campaigns.

Think of the Statement it would make as well.
