We are happy to announce the following acquisition news!
The crew that you know will still be here doing what we do. AAC is still AAC, but we will be moving into a brand new much larger space, and have access to more R&D and production resources than ever. We are really excited about what the future holds.
Don’t worry, we will continue to make cans for guns from every manufacturer and their various models- and stock and delivery issues will soon be a thing of the past! More news soon.
REMINGTON PURCHASES AAC
An industry icon’s new venture in suppressor technology.
By Tom Beckstrand
Remington announced today that they have purchased the assets of Advanced
Armament Corporation, an industry leader in suppressor manufacturing. The
AAC acquisition appears to be part of Remington¹s broader strategic goal of
returning American military weapons production to the American industrial
For the first time in years, Remington has introduced new products in the
sniper rifle space with the Modular Sniper Rifle (MSR) and the
