Holy shit. What a great experience. 240's, 249's & M16's in all stages of completion. Awesome. Metal detector on entrance & exit. Guess they don't want any parts walking out...

Did they let your test fire anything? Isn't that plant long guns only?

Well, in the Para-Ord plant in Canada, some workers stole whole guns, so I think the plant management just want to be sure that no authorized equipment gets lost.

There was a rumour floating around the SHOT show that they were about to start offering those.

I read somewhere, but I forget where, that they are expressly forbiddened by USA contract to produce guns for the commercial market, only military.
