    I honestly don't see how Colt, LWRC, S&W, etc will have any other choice but to make the same stand! What is their revenue gonna look like when the gun market in the US is limited to LE and Military ONLY. Gonna suck losing 100+ million potential customers when we finish sliding down the slippery slope. They can take a stand now for long term benefit.

    I own several AR's and one is an Olympic. Good for them!

    How about some manufacturer telling the feds to pound sand, that is the next step.

    Bingo! :rofl:

    But really, good for them. When prices go down, and I finally get the AR I have been waiting for I will give them a look.

    I'm proud of Olympic arms.

    Having the guts to stand up for your convictions is rare now days.

    I owned a pre-ban Oly and never had any issues with it. Unfortunately I sold it a couple of years back.

    Thumbs up for them. Well-stated letter the president of the company wrote.

    NY residents are still pretty screwed. But we've got room in KY for a few of you. I'm looking forward to seeing the new law improvements in Illinois. (concealed carry coming soon)

    The AWB laws are really a joke, and 99 percent politics.

    What most people don't know is that Olympic was a rather well respected barrel maker before they made ARs. Nothing wrong with a premium quality AR, but an Olympic will do fine for 99% of what most civilians will use it for.

    I'm going to take some time today, and contact Olympic Arms and let them know they have me back as a customer.... Likewise, I am going to contact the others (RRA, Colt, BMI, S&W) and let them know that Olympic Arms' public stance has earned my future business while theirs have not.

    I am a New Yorker and I agree with there position

    I just posted this on Glocks face book Page

    Originally I had appealed to Glock asking them not to abandon us New Yorkers, I had asked that they make a 7 round magazine so that the new Law passed in New York making anything over a 7 round magazine illegal would not become whats its intended purpose was and actual Gun Ban as Glock only make one gun that New Yorkers could now purchase new.

    Well I have changed my position and I feel Glock and the other manufacturers of Fire arms should make it clear to our over reaching government that if they shut down civilian sales then the manufacturers will shut down all sales and service to the state.

    So now I am asking Glock to Please take the same stance as Olympic Arms and the others and send a clear message to Andrew Cuomo if you make unconstitutional laws it will effect the way the state can effect there business. Governor Andrew Cuomo already made it clear he did not have an interest in the brave Law Enforcement officials who work to keep us safe by not even excluding them from the bad legislation. So please Glock send the same message to the politicians of New York you will not sell to anybody in New York.

    Thank You

    Please take the time to let Glock know how you would feel if they took the same position with New York sales as the other manufacturers are taking. Originally every one thought this was only going to be a New York and California thing but its pretty clear the agenda is to make it national.



    weather or not you realize it or not we are all in it together

    I own an older olympics arms rifle and have NEVER had an issue with it
    I know it has close to 10,000 rounds thru it and it runs
    also it is more accurate than my brothers cmmg gun

    anybody who talks trash about oly arms is just talking or a fool
