    New Announcements from the Big 3 meetings in Kansas!

    David Fortier reports:

    Well, today Alexander Arms announced a few things at the Big 3 writers event.

    1. The Grendel has been accepted by SAAMI
    2. They have released their trademark on the Grendel
    3. They showed off steel cased Grendel produced by Wolf
    4. They hired a very well respected gentleman named Wayne Holt to handle PR.

    So, now ANYONE can make a Grendel.
    The steel cased ammo is being produced by Barnaul for Wolf Performance ARMS and Ammunition.
    Note Wolf now has a firearms division and is working with Izhmash and Molot. They are looking into
    Vepr and Saiga rifles in Grendel. Currently testing is being done on the Wolf steel cases to verify
    they are good to go. Wolf is claiming production ammo for 1st quarter of this coming year. They said
    now that they switched this from Tula to Barnaul things are progressing nicely. I think its very positive
    as Barnaul's quality is well known for being a notch above Tulas. The steel cases look sexy....

    Wayne Holt was the #2 man at Hornady for many years and was with Glock prior to this.
    This is big move on Alexander Arms part. Should be very interesting to see how things go.

    Wolf was at the event and they are very firmly behind the Grendel, and have some very interesting
    things regarding AK rifles.

    I'm tired, will try to get some pics up in a couple days. Day two of the event is tomorrow.......
    The Military Arms Channel folks are out here, great guys. Had a really good time speaking
    with them and seeing how they do stuff. Lot of interesting products and Hi-Lux showed a
    prototype of a new CMR type scope....many interesting things here.......even had one of the early
    developers of the 6.8 SPC!

    Very cool.

    I hear a thunderous "Urraahhhh!!!" from the unwashed Grendel Horde and the loud, celebratory clanking of flagons!

    Should shut up some of those folks complaining about the registered name....and it's a dying caliber, etc....but, probably not. Some people just gotta complain.
    Now, with the possibility of more rifle manufacturers, maybe we'll start to see some others coming out with more mag variety and dependability.
    Great news indeed!

    I wonder if Satern Machine will start making Grendel barrels again?

    OUTSTANDING! looks like i stumbled upon the grendel at a great time
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
