    Lyman has published a press release announcing the acquisition of Mark 7 Reloading ammunition reloading equipment manufacturing company. Here is Lyman’s press release in full:

    Lyman Products is extremely pleased to announce that, effective immediately, Mark 7 Reloading® is now a Lyman brand and a part of the Lyman family, which includes Pachmayr, TacStar, A-Zoom, Trius, and Butch’s. In order to strengthen and expand upon their already well-respected position within the reloading market, Lyman Products saw a growth opportunity within the reloading space by combining its world-class manufacturing with Mark 7’s world-class engineering.

    Mark 7 has brought change and innovation to the market since their introduction of the popular Autodrive systems in 2015. Since then they have continued to bring new and dynamic advancement to the reloading category with their Evolution™, Evolution Pro and Revolution® Reloading Systems. Now in its sixth year of operation, Mark 7 has a full line of reloading presses ranging from hand operation to light commercial operation.

    Lyman president and CEO, Rick Ranzinger, said, “This was a natural fit for us as the Mark 7 brand and products dovetail nicely with our existing reloading products and initiatives. Lyman Products provides strong manufacturing capabilities and brand recognition that will enable Mark 7 to grow to new heights. We are excited to embark on this new chapter as we continue the Lyman mission to provide innovative products designed by shooters, for shooters, since 1878.”

    The Mark 7 employees and management team will continue to stay on and assist Lyman in building the Mark 7 brand. Mark 7 will remain at their Fort Myers, Florida location, and their products will continue to be made right here in the United States and assembled at the Florida facility, with many of their parts being manufactured at Lyman’s Connecticut facility.

    Mark 7 Reloading is known for manufacturing advanced automated ammunition reloading machinery with a high level of digital integration. Mark 7 machines allow reloading from 900 up to 3,500 rounds of ammunition per hour depending on the machine settings and model. If you visit the Lyman website, you can find a chart (see below) with the tech specs and prices of some of the Mark 7 machines.
