Industry news Auto-Numatic Expands Manufacturing uto-Numatic Corp. has acquired the land surrounding its Fort Worth, Texas, headquarters for a planned expansion of the manufacturing facility for AirForce Airguns and BKL Technologies. “Made in the USA has always meant something for me. Keeping the jobs in the U.S. has never been optional, just like quality. You have to have both,” said John A McCaslin, Auto-Numatic CEO. AirForce Airguns has been designing and producing pre-charged airguns in Fort Worth for more than 15 years. Auto-Numatic acquired BKL Technologies in 2009 as its U.S. manufacturer of mounts, rings and levels for rimfire and airgun dovetail rail systems using U.S.produced raw materials. Auto-Numatic launched AirForce International last year as its airgun import division. Visit www.airforceairguns.com, www. bkltech.com and www.airforceinternational.com.

The latest addition to Chiappa’s line of quality firearms, the M9 is a true and faithful reproduction of the original, chambered in .22LR. Along with its cousin the 1911-22, these two reproduction handguns are “must haves” for serious collector-shooters.
