History of Rock Island Armory
Rock Island Armory (RIA) was acquired by Armscor Precision International in 1985. Armscor traces its roots back as far as 1905 to a small trading post in the Philippines. Armscor was first known as Squires, Bingham & Co. but was eventually bought in 1930 and renamed Sportsmen's Headquarters. In 1980, the growing company was reorganized and renamed Arms Corporation of the Philippines. In 1985, Armscor Precision International opened its first United States office in Nevada. Shortly after, Armscor acquired the Rock Island Armory brand, a leading M1911 manufacturer and developer.
A third-generation family company, Armscor is becoming a global force – now exporting to over fifty countries on six continents. Rock Island Armory is now the sole producer of Armscor firearms.
