Olympic Arms of Olympia, Washington announced just after SHOT Show the company will be closing their business on February 28, 2017. After more than 40 years in the firearms business, the Schuetz family who owned and operated Olympic Arms has decided to leave the firearms market.
The end of a firearms company is a part of the open market system, but is often a tragic event in our opinion. The robust American firearms market provides consumers the most abundant choices in the world, and is the driver in world-wide competition and innovation. Olympic Arms was not one of the major U.S. firearms manufacturers, but their contributions helped drive the hunting AR-15 market.
