Small Arms is a sector that Accelerated Manufacturing Brokers, Inc. has worked in with incredible success. While we’ve always had buyers in this sector, we live in a unique time where this sector is expected to experience strong growth and interest has increased.

The Small Arms Market is expected to grow from $4.84 billion in 2020 to $8.93 billion in 2030, for a CAGR of 6.31%. At Accelerated, we think these projections are light, given the following:

Small Arms Firearm Store
  • Gun sales in the United States reached a record level in 2020, with the biggest increases in background checks for firearms overlapping with months of social and political unrest, according to industry and government data.
  • Industry data and firearms background checks show nearly 23 million guns were purchased in 2020. That’s a 65% increase compared with 2019, when 13.9 million guns were sold.
  • The jump in gun sales also continued into 2021. In January, as rioters stormed the US Capitol and a new administration took office, the FBI was swamped with 4.3 million requests for background checks — up from 2.7 million requests last January.

Buyers in this category are seeking everything from an OEM with branded products to smaller manufacturers providing parts to the OEMs. In addition to machined components, buyers are also seeking the acquisition of ammunition manufacturers.
