U.S.A.-( Kel-Tec CNC Industries is expanding its production capacity with the acquisition of a 33,000 square foot facility in Rock Springs, Wyoming, augmenting its 125,000 square foot industrial space in Cocoa, Florida.

“I am thrilled to be a part of this new adventure in our story,” stated Adrian Kellgren, Director of Industrial Production. “Wyoming has a rich history as part of the American frontier and it’s fitting for our brand, being that we constantly explore the limits of performance and design, to expand out here.”

KelTec® firearms are known for innovation and performance, so the new facility will focus on cutting edge manufacturing technology, next generation research and development and of course, production of the newest trend-setting firearms available.

“This is a milestone for Kel-Tec CNC Industries,” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Derek Kellgren. “While steady expansion isn’t anything new to us, this is our first expansion into another State and we couldn’t be more excited about advancing our innovative designs and production processes in Wyoming.”

While the company’s initial start-up will be small, the facility is designed to grow up to 250+ employees across multiple industrial disciplines.

“In Wyoming, we value our open spaces, recreation and hunting and proudly defend our 2nd Amendment rights,” stated Governor Mark Gordon. “Because of those values and our business-friendly environment I am pleased to welcome KelTec firearms to Wyoming.”

Rock Springs Mayor Timothy A. Kaumo, echoing added support from Sweetwater County officials and the Wyoming Business Council, added “The City of Rock Springs is beyond excited and proud to have KelTec firearms locating here.”

“The future of our company is tied to the future of the American free spirit,” concluded George Kellgren, Founder, Chairman and CEO. “Wyoming has been a leading example of liberty and freedom for America, and it is right that we become part of it.”

Reading between the lines, the Kellgrens have bought large acreages near Rock Springs, Wyoming, which can now be accessed as tax deductible business trips…… And, Wyoming doesn’t have a state individual income tax, same as Florida, but also has no corporate tax……can you hear changes of domicile hitting the mail??? As ole Paul Harvey used say, “….and, now, you know the rest of the story.” Sure do miss ole Paul. More power to Kellgrens, proud of them, for “beating the tax man” and supporting the 2A. 🙂 🙂 🙂


I did have problems with ammo that was overwaxed, FTF and FTE.
With non waxy ammo it runs 100%. I uses the loader tool and added the +17 magazine extensions and the TandemKross magazine pull floorplate.


Wyoming.. the last bastion of hope and freedom.. the leftists HATE Wyoming. bunch of toothless, trailer living, knuckle draggers in their opinion. That will be their doom.


Wyoming ?


“Wyoming ?” ~ Ope (Will/TEX/et al.)

TEXAS had “no issue” when California had “may issue” – thanks to TEXAS enforcers.

TEXAS has had way more Democrat governors than Republican.

A TEXAN Republican created the BATFE.

A TEXAN Republican was the boss of the guy who created the BATFE.

A TEXAN was one of the worst three or four presidents this country has ever had.

A TEXAN rural enforcer called in the BATFE to get the Waco mess started.

Wyoming is not perfect, but this narrative about TEXAS being extremely “conservative” is a myth.

If TEXAS is “like a whole other country” why are 21 dead in Uvalde & 23 in El Paso? Beta was close to taking Cruz out. Polling close to cuck Abbott. Will OpeTEX still parrot “TEXAS, like a whole other country” if Beta becomes Gov?


We almost had a mass murder at a school. The depraved individual was an ex-enforcer (former Town Marshal). Look up “the Cokeville Miracle.” To this day, many people believe dozens of children and many adults would have been murdered had it not been for Divine intervention.


Good for KelTec. Good for Wyoming.


I have a CP33 and it has never failed to fire! It is not finicky at all! The magazine is picky in how it is loaded, but that is a measure of user error and practice! Stop dissing Kel Tek!


have a rbf 24 hoot to shoot brass drops in bucket
