@jeffing65 you know it all goes back to the assault rifle ban. Prior to that the AR was NOT a big seller, neither was the Glock…at first.
But tell Americans they can’t have something and they will want it more!
When the law was not renewed the market exploded, and it has changed everything. From ammo types being made and and quantity to the slow demise of the revolver and any rifle that does not have plastic stocks.
