The Founding and Growth of Strategic Armory Corps

In 2010, the founder of Strategic Armory Corps, Mark Johnson, acquired AWC Systems Technology, LLC (AWC). AWC has more than 30 years of experience producing high-quality firearm suppressors. In 2011, Johnson expanded the business by acquiring Oklahoma-based Surgeon Rifles, LLC, a leading manufacturer in accurate, durable, proprietary bolt-action receivers and precision bolt-action custom rifles on the market. It is during this acquisition that Strategic Armory Corps was born.

Over the next two years, Johnson diversified Strategic Armory Corps by adding NEXUS Ammo, Armalite, and McMillan Firearms to the group. In August 2012, the Corporation acquired the intellectual property, supported by 23 patents, for technology related to powdered metal core ammunition. Additionally, Harold Beal, the inventor of the technology, joined Strategic Armory Corps as a consultant to help develop this new line, NEXUS Ammo. NEXUS Ammo now has a proprietary line of ammunition with professional-grade accuracy and high-density powder core technology.

In mid-2013, Armalite joined the Strategic Armory Corps lineup of premium brands. Armalite, a 60-year veteran of the industry, brings a wide variety of semi-automatic modern sporting rifles, bolt-action, and pistol-style firearms to the group. To round off the Corporation’s offerings, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing was acquired in November of 2013. McMillan Firearms adds premium hunting rifles and tactical bolt-action firearms to Strategic Armory Corps’ product offerings.
