One of the biggest names in big-bore firearms, Big Horn Armory, has just announced that the company will be going through a pretty large expansion in order to meet increasing customer demand. This announcement comes during a time when much of the firearms industry has been adversely impacted by world conditions – Big Horn Amory seems to be making great strides in the opposite direction.

Big Horn Armory Announces Big Expansion for Business to Meet Demand
We hope to increase our manufacturing capabilities two to three times over the next year. Much of this will involve new personnel in our assembly and quality control departments. We have a core workforce of excellent people right now and we intend to use these people to train and orient our new personnel to create more of the fine products that we currently produce for our customers.”
Greg Buchel, Owner of Big Horn Armory
Over the next couple of months, Big Horn Amory will be nearly doubling its workforce, increasing its manufacturing space by 500 percent, and adding new machinery. According to a Big Horn Armory press release, this massive expansion is coming as a direct result of the ever-increasing lead times at Big Horn from customer demand.
As with most industries, the firearms industry has seen an impact on suppliers and vendors due to COVID-19 restrictions and limitations. In addition, there has been an increase in product demand as American citizens turn out to support their 2A rights with a record-setting number of background checks in 2020 alone. The delays from suppliers and vendors, as well as the increase in demand, have resulted in extended lead times for Big Horn Armory (BHA) firearms.
