Philippines-based company Arms Corporation of the Philippines (Armscor) has been in the firearms business since 1905. After receiving the country’s first official firearms license from the government in 1952, Armscor has moved full speed ahead ever since. They plan to grow their production facilities by double in 2013 and 2012 saw the development of the Armscor exclusive .22 TCM caliber. In 1985, Armscor Precision International opened its U.S. doors in Nevada and shortly after purchased Rock Island Armory. Armscor is some of the most reliable and consistent ammo for the cheapest price that Cheaper Than Dirt carries. As production grows, I’m anxious to see what lays ahead for Armscor and Rock Island Armory.
