On Wednesday, a well known firearm manufacturer announced their return to the business. That company is Bushmaster Firearms, returning to the industry after a long hiatus. Now, known as Bushmaster Firearms International. As, a company Bushmaster has had a tumultuous career during its 48 year history. A history of successes and failures for the long running company.
During, the span of four decades Bushmaster has dealt with being owned and operated by multiple companies with varying visions for the brand. With those varying visions their was no focus or product continuity. That lack of vision left the brand stale to consumers and in a precarious spot.
Then in 2020, we saw the end of the Bushmaster brand when it’s parent company Remington announced the brand would be retired. This retirement was due to Remington’s reconstruction after Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings. Fast forward to September 2020, and Bushmaster was sold to Crotalus Holdings, Inc. Now, the company has risen from the ashes with new goals, vision of the future, and independence.
The initial focus for Bushmaster will be razor sharp. The company will focus on variants of the XM15-E2S™ such as QRC and the M4 Partolman series of rifles. Then, in the future the company will focus on the ACR and the .450 Bushmaster models.
Below, is the press release from Bushmaster on their return to the industry.
