Firepower - - BUYER'S GUIDE -

De­mand for their prod­ucts and ser­vices are so great that they’ve had to move to a 3-shift, 24-hour sched­ule to keep up with de­mand. Even work­ing 24 hours, ba­sic builds are still av­er­ag­ing a 10 to 14 week lead-time. In a lit­tle over two years, Agency Arms has al­ready com­pleted more than 4,000 com­plete ground-up pis­tol builds as well as another 800 cus­tom slides. Con­sid­er­ing how many man-hours of painstak­ing work go into ev­ery sin­gle build, we’d say that’s quite an im­pres­sive feat. As breath­tak­ing as the fa­cil­ity and its ma­chines are, the most no­table take­away from our visit, and one of the most un­ex­pected, was the fam­ily at­mos­phere that fills Agency Arms’ head­quar­ters. Even their two French Bull­dogs, Vir­gil and Thema, tried to help us out with our pho­to­shoot. Agency Arms is known for im­pres­sive prod­ucts, ad­vanced de­signs and machining in­no­va­tion, but per­haps it’s the good vibes of the own­er­ship and staff that fu­els its suc­cess.
