Detroit Gun Works Lowers Available Again

After posting an announcement that they would no longer manufacture lowers with their name on them, Detroit Gun Works is apparently selling matched uppers and lowers with the DGW logo through Kroll International.  This is an unexpected event due to the company’s stated position from just a few months ago.

In early December 2012, Kroll International released a pre-SHOT Show ad that suggested they had teamed up with Detroit Gun Works and Blackhawk possibly for new AR-15 rifles made by DGW and fitted with Blackhawk gear.  But, by the end of the same month, DGW pulled back from the announcement and posted on their website that they would not be producing lowers with the company name on them any more.  The previously announced .308 and .300 Blackout uppers and rifles were also shelved.


Detroit Gun Works – Direction Change; Won’t Be At SHOT

I recently published a teaser ad that suggested a cooperative effort between Detroit Gun Works, Blackhawk! and Kroll International.  I speculated that Detroit Gun Works would be building an AR-style rifle.  Well, it now looks like Detroit Gun Works will not be at the SHOT Show and may not be making any products with their brand on it in the near future.

In a statement published on their website, Detroit Gun Works stated they will not be at the 2013 SHOT Show, and they will not be making lowers or rifles with the company name on them.
