The California Connection

For the last two months, another researcher and I have been comparing notes and interviewing several gentlemen that were involved in legally importing, manufacturing and distributing ammunition, U. S. military small arms and surplus parts from the late 1940s until the late 1990s. These gentlemen did business principally in southern California.

We have put together a timeline that ties quite a bit of the history together for commerical U. S. military style arms. If you have a M1 Carbine or Federal Ordnance M14, I think you'll find this interesting.

This document is offered freely. It is not to be sold and it is for personal use only. It's a .pdf file. If you would like a copy, send me an e-mail request at leea[email protected] Ask for The California Connection.

Re: The California Connection

The research continues. James Mock and I have added to this freebie document. We have information on AMT, Auto Mag, J&R Engineering, Northwest Arms, and Wilkinson Arms. These firms were not manufacturing M1 Carbines but were owned by those connected to the commercial M1 Carbine story. If you have an interest in the history of the commercial firearms industry in California, I think you'll find this interesting. This is original research. It is a 14 page .pdf file available upon request at [email protected]
