Bushmaster Acquires Cobb Manufacturing!!!


This from Jim Shepherd at the Outdoor Wire today:

Later this afternoon, Bushmaster Firearms International, LLC will announce it has acquired the assets of Cobb Manufacturing, Inc., a Georgia based developer and producer of tactical rifles.

Current Cobb models include .308, 30-06, .338 Lapua and .50 BMG calibers. Further, Bushmaster will announce that Cobb's founder and President, Skip Patel, has been named Executive Vice President of Research and Development for Bushmaster Firearms International.

Cobb has been recognized for it's innovative, out of the box approach to tactical platforms, including its acclaimed patent pending Multi-Caliber Rifle semi-auto system (MCR) and expertise in large bore bolt action rifles. Cobb's products are currently fielded with a number of Law enforcement agencies and militaries worldwide. The current Cobb rifle lineup will be refined and re-branded with the Bushmaster snake, and will be produced out of Bushmaster's Windham, Maine Facility.

As part of the transaction, Bushmaster has also established a rapid prototype and R&D manufacturing facility in Georgia, where next generation products will be developed. The facility will maintain emphasis on Bushmasters new product pipeline for Commercial, Law Enforcement and Military tailored products.

Skip at Cobb is a friend as well as an industry visionary. Check out the Multi-Caliber Rifle pictured above. We reported here at The Michael Bane Blog after the SHOT Show that Cerberus Capital, who owns Bushmaster and Remington, was "shopping" ont he SHOT Show floor for a long-range rifle manufacturer with a solid military grounding. I thought for certain it was going to be Skip, but there's many a slip, etc.

Of course, you'll see the new products first on SHOOTING GALLERY! I'll be heading down to Hot'lanta real soon!

How about a link to 'war on guns' and Aug. 28 being 'buy ammo day'?

I thought April 15 was BAG day?

As to Cobb, I think the idea of moving the mag well from the lower to the upper, isolating all caliber differences to the upper is genius. A truly universal lower.

Wait... There's only one day we're supposed to buy a gun?

Did my wife put you all up to this?

Ya know, Bushmaster stopped producing their AR10 and M17S due to a lack of production capacity.

Now these idiots are buying a whole new product line, and are not inf act going to produce them at the facility they are already produced at.

Something sticks.

Are we sure they bought Cobb with the intention of producing Cobb's product line, or did they buy them to kill off some competition?
