Armscor

Armscor is a company that can trace its roots all the way back to 1905. While their heritage started in the Philippines, they have been a globally-recognized company that has served the needs of hunters, target shooters, and law enforcement for decades.

While the business started as an outdoors outlet, the core focus of Armscor is now self defense ammunition and firearms. They strongly believe that reliable products, for the purpose of home and personal protection, should not be unattainably expensive. To meet this goal, they have developed innovative products and manufacturing techniques that help maintain reliability and affordable prices.

In 1905, Squires, Bingham & Co. was founded in the Philippines. This outlet traded clothing, firearms, and ammunition, as well as various supplies for outdoorsmen. In 1930, the company was renamed “Sportsmen’s Headquarters.” The company remained steady and successful, but it wasn’t until Don Celso Tuason bought the company that it truly flourished.

In 1952, Tuason renamed the company “Squires Binghamm Manufacturing Inc.” By obtaining the first firearms-manufacturing license from the post-war Philippine government, Tuason and his company helped rebuild the region, which had been devastated during the Japanese occupation of World War II.

The company continued to thrive, providing quality products to customers and jobs to the Philippine people. The Armscor brand, however, would not be seen until 1980, when the company was reorganized and renamed “Arms Corporation of the Philippines.” By 1985, Armscor Precision International opened its first United States office in Nevada. In the same year, Armscor purchased the Rock Island Armory brand, which was a leader in the manufacturing of M1911 handguns.

Armscor has maintained a strong commitment to the design and manufacturing of 1911-style handguns, as well as the ammunition these weapons require.

Armscor is now lead by Martin Tuason, the grandson of Don Celso and current president of the company. They have a detailed commitment to customer service and quality products, and create some of the finest handgun, shotgun, and rifle ammunition in the world. They export to all six continents (excluding Antarctica) and more than 50 countries across the globe.

    I had purchased a Henry Lever action 22 magnum rifle, put a Nikon Prostaff 3-9×40mm scope on it. I had shot armscor 22lr ammo before and decided to break the Henry 22 magnum in with it. I did purchase the Armscor USA 22 magnum 40 grain ammunition, made in the USA, stay away from the Armscor made in the Philippines, coated with wax and it is messy in your hand and chamber. The break in of the Henry 22 magnum was great, the Henry put groups inside of a 1/4" at 50 yards shooting off of homemade sandbags. It shot so well it is my ammunition. Shoots as accurate as the CCI 40 grain 22 magnum ammo. Give it a try, your rifle/pistol will love the Armscor USA 22 magnum ammunition.
