History of Armscor
The Armscor heritage can be traced back to 1905 when the first Squires, Bingham & Co. headquarters was established in the Philippines. Years later, in 1930, they were bought and renamed “Sportsmen’s Headquarters.” For a decade, they engaged in trading clothing, firearms, ammunition, and other items before visionary entrepreneur Don Celso Tuason bought the company at the start of WWII. He renamed the company to “Squires Bingham Manufacturing Inc.” and helped rebuild the post-war Philippines by obtaining the first firearms manufacturing license from the government.
Armscor, the brand that is widely loved today, didn’t come into existence until the 1980s after Squires Bingham Manufacturing was reorganized and renamed “Arms Corporation of the Philippines.” In 1985, Armscor opened its first American enterprise in Pahrump, Nevada, and acquired the Rock Island Armory brand a little while later. Rock Island Armory was the leading M1911 manufacturer and developer at the time and still is today.
In 2011, the company experienced a brand update and simplified its structure. As part of that simplification process, Rock Island Armory became the sole producer of firearms in the Armscor family. What never changed was the company’s dedication to customer satisfaction and service. They know that whatever they produce would meet the company’s motto, “Right on target. Right on the Price.”
