In 2010, Strategic Armory Corps acquired AWC Systems Technology, LLC (AWC). AWC has over 27 years of experience producing high-quality firearm suppressors. In 2011, the brand expanded the business by acquiring Oklahoma based Surgeon Rifles, a manufacturer of some of the most 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, Strategic Armory Corps diversified by adding NEXUS Ammo, Armalite, and McMillan Firearms to the group. In August 2012, SAC 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 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-auto modern sporting rifles, bolt action, and pistol style firearms to the group. To round off the SAC family’s offerings, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing was acquired in November of 2013. McMillan Firearms offers premium hunting rifles and tactical bolt-action firearms to Strategic Armory Corps’ clientele.

Every aspect of Strategic Armory Corps has been designed and structured with the customer in mind. Each group of products available from a Strategic Armory Corps brand is available for purchase through any of the SAC brands. Whether you are law enforcement, military, or simply a firearms enthusiast, Strategic Armory Corps is truly a one-stop shop.


Strategic Armory Corps was formed with the goal of acquiring and combining market-leading companies within the firearms industry. Each company that is brought into the SAC family fulfills a consumer need with their brand of niche products. To date, five highly respected manufacturing companies have been acquired. These companies strategically fit together to form a strong base of products and services that are designed to meet the expectations of military, law enforcement, commercial groups, and individual users around the world.
