Yep, Magpul is gone from CO. They said they will have new magazine shipping 30 days from the signing.

Straight from their FB page:


With the signing of the HB 1224, we want to reassure Colorado residents, now officially in occupied territory, that the "Boulder Airlift" will continue until we can no longer legally ship to CO residents at the approach of the July 1 deadline, so long as demand continues.

We are looking at additional ways to give Coloradans the opportunity to buy the magazines they need prior to the enactment date, as although we've been swamped with tens of thousands of orders, our shipping department limitations have only allowed us to get a few hundred thousand magazines out to CO residents...a small portion of our monthly production. We'll continue to support the Airlift as long as demand exists, and up to the active date of the legislation, and we've allocated a little over a million magazines for the effort up to that point, give or take.

Customers in the rest of the country should rest assured that the airlift only takes a small portion of our production, and magazines and other products are continuing to ship to the rest of the nation. Our transition to a new home will occur in a phased and orderly a manner to allow us to continue to serve our customers during the move, as well as to allow an orderly transition for affected employees. We are actively working on those plans.

Magpul isn't bluffing. They are dead serious about pulling out of Co and setting up shop elsewhere. Good on 'em I say.

I bet they are being recruited to relocate to communities in every state in the southeast and southwest U.S. Unless they have a desire to move to a specific city or county, Magpul will likely have their choice of free buildings and tax breaks.

They have said that they weren't relocating to just one location.... but going to spread out over multiple states.

You know THAT'S right......Complete hump. Bredesen, Part II

I just wish Magpul would pull what Ellis Wyatt did in Colorado (Atlas Shrugged reference)....he scuttled his entire operation, and at the gate, left this sign

Ammunition magazine manufacturer Magpul Industries said it plans to begin leaving Colorado "almost immediately," and other firms may follow suit in the wake of a new law that limits ammunition magazine capacities.

"Our moving efforts are underway," Magpul chief operating officer Doug Smith said Wednesday. "Within the next 30 days we will manufacture our first magazine outside the state of Colorado."

One of three gun-control bills signed Wednesday by Gov. John Hickenlooper prohibits the sale of gun magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.

Erie-based Magpul, with about 200 workers, is the largest Colorado company that potentially would be affected by the bill.

Magpul said earlier this week in a Facebook posting that it " will start our transition out of state almost immediately." The company also posted, "We will likely become a multi-state operation as a result of this move, and not all locations have been selected."

The firm's departure could have a ripple effect on companies that supply parts and materials to Magpul.

"We're basically going to follow Magpul and do our best to continue being a supplier for them," said Lloyd Lawrence, owner of Denver-based Lawrence Tool & Molding. "It will probably be out of state."

Lawrence said about 50 to 60 percent of his business comes from supplying magazine parts to Magpul. He said that, ideally, the company could continue to manufacture parts in Colorado and then open an out-of-state facility where the parts would be assembled.

Lawrence said he doesn't yet know how many of his 82 employees would choose to relocate if the company moves out of Colorado.


Manufacturers could continue to make large-capacity magazines if they stamp them with dates and serial numbers.

That provision is impractical and potentially expensive, said Mark Passamaneck, owner of Wheat Ridge-based Carbon Arms, a manufacturer of parts and accessories for firearms.

He said the five-employee firm may consider moving out of state if the magazine capacity law is not overturned by future legislation or constitutional amendments.
