We get many questions regarding the origin of Primary Arms products. This is our attempt to answer a few of them:
- Why China? Well the simple fact is, we can't find a US manufacturer that can make the quality of optic we want at a competitive price. We are on continuous lookout for US companies that can meet our needs and invite them to contact us if we don't find them first (email@example.com is a good start!).
- How does Primary Arms decide to work with a factory? Marshall (CEO of Primary Arms) makes multiple trips to China every year to meet with factory reps and tour (new and existing) factories. Primary Arms does not work with factories with poor working conditions or factories that intentionally violate US patent laws.
- When will you get new/more product in? We are in constant communication with factories regarding production of new and existing products. Varying lead times, customs, shipping times (slow boat from China?) make for uncertainty on exact dates we will have products. The best way to stay in touch is through our blog (handy subscription sign up to the right), various social media outlets (we invite you to follow your favorite or all of them using the links at the top of the page) or sign up for our newsletter.
