About the Manufacturer:

George Washington ordered the creation of the Springfield Armory in 1777 to store revolutionary ammunition and gun carriages. In 1794 the armory began to manufacture muskets for the US. For the next 150 years Springfield Armory functioned as the supplier for every major American conflict, as well as a 'think tank' for new firearms concepts. Due to budgetary concerns the US Government closed the armory in 1968. After the closure, the Springfield Armory name was used by a small company in Texas for several years. Those efforts were unsuccessful and in 1974, the rights to the Springfield Armory name were acquired by Robert Reese, who formed a new company to manufacture semi-automatic versions of the M14 rifle called the M1A Rifle. This firearm was what brought success to the business. The company then expanded its market into pistols, notably the M1911. After further success the company began to branch into many fields of firearms. Springfield Armory now manufactures dozens of different firearms of many styles and models.
