Does anyone own a Bushmaster that they know was built at the Illion New York facility? If so, how is it marked?
Does it say "BFI Illion, NY" or does it still say "BFI Windham, ME"?
There may be no way to know for sure so maybe the better question is: Has anyone seen a Bushmaster marked "BFI Illion, NY"?
I'm just curious as to how long they are going to build Bushmasters in New York that are labeled Windham Maine or if they have stopped that yet.

Excellent question.

Haven't seen any difference yet, but i'm not surprised. I bet there are still a bunch of windham guns in the unsold inventories.

It will probably take awhile to get all of the Maine guns out of the pipeline and for NY production to get into full swing. At the shop where I work, we're still receiving CT-marked Marlins from our distributors, and their merger/move was supposedly completed some time ago...

The Colt kool-aid tastes funny. I'll pass.

Won't anything coming out of the NY plant have to say NY? No matter when the lowers were stamped it has to match the FFL location before distribution for sale?

BTW who has the manufacturers FFL anyway? The Corporate office or the Manufacturing plant?
