    I'm sure most all of us can only speculate or share what we've heard in "over the gun counter" gossip, but has anyone heard when manufacturers are going to start ramping up production to meet the demand?

    It seems like no one not only has no products but is not even getting anything either! Is it I am just not on top of my game at catching people with stuff in stock? Im mostly hunting stripped lowers, upper assemblies, etc.

    Only things I've heard is Magpul is putting all their manufacturing focus on black pmags to try and catch up with demand and multiple companies are turning down orders as they have already sold their 2013 manufacturing capabilities

    THEY'VE ALL BEEN RAMPING UP PRODUCTION SINCE MID DECEMBER.

    But they can't keep up with the demand of the panic buyers.

    Just remember, ammo manufacturers have a set amount they can make in a year, based on Government regulation. If they sell the entire amount by July, then that's it. They typically will make all of it and hold some stock if available for the next year. They are all running balls out right now and even then, you're looking at most likely 8-12 months before any normalcy begins.
