7 Gun Companies in Inc’s Top 5000 Fastest-Growing Privately-Held Companies

Seven firearms or firearms-related companies have made Inc’s top 5000 fastest-growing privately-held companies listing for 2014. Guns.com took the liberty of combing through the entire list to find the seven companies. The company that comes immediately to mind is Daniel Defense. With the MSR market cooling, three companies beat Daniel for the top-spot.

The top privately-held firearms companies are listed below:

  1. SilencerCo
  2. Body Armor Outlet
  3. Delta Defense
  4. Daniel Defense
  5. Ammo Brothers
  6. LaserMax
  7. H&H Shooting Complex
SilencerCo is the fastest-growing private company in the firearms industry.

SilencerCo is the fastest-growing private company in the firearms industry.

Congratulations to the companies! Here’s to seeing at least double that count next year.

The above post is my opinion and does not reflect the views of any company or organization.


  • strongarm

    let everybody to settle companies to make supprassors.

  • northafrican

    Daniel defense deserve it especially with their v7 lw

  • TRMorgan-says

    Looking at that list its great to see that an independent range/retailer made the cut. Not surprised to see the manufactures listed, its great that a non-industry publication like Forbes recognizes the growth that the firearms industry provides for the economy.

    • USMC03Vet

      Well the Obama administration recognized the growth of the firearms industry too by launching Operation Choke Point.

      Can’t ban ’em? Use extortion against banks to get them to cut off their funding.


  • Geoff a well known Skeptic

    I hate to say it, but the import bans and restrictions have made the gun industry in this country. Maybe we should do it for all US business. Geoff Who is cynical.
