What killed Knight Rifles


Recommended Posts

From American Rifleman:

"During the recent NRA Annual Meetings, Americanrifleman.org/Americanhunter.org learned that Knight Rifles is closing its doors after 24 years as a key American firearms manufacturer. That news was confirmed late last week via an announcement from Modern Muzzleloading, Inc., a related subsidiary under corporate parent, Pradco Outdoor Brands/EBSCO. The press release stated, “The decision to close the Knight operation resulted from an overall industry downturn.” Reportedly Knight sales had declined sharply in recent years and efforts to sell the brand and company assets were unsuccessful."

I was in Iowa a couple months ago and listened to a radio interview with the guy that started Knight. He was no longer in ownership of the company, and hadn't been for years. He was very careful what he said about the shutdown, as to not disparage the current owners/employees.
