Inter Ordnance makes AKs and AR15s on Florida’s “Space Coast.” The company boasts that its new locale helps business because “we have been able to hire top quality engineers and assembly personnel, who worked before for NASA and defense contractors.” Meanwhile, IO hired Eduardo Debarros to be their VP of Production. Debarros worked for Taurus for more than 20 years, expanding Taurus’ production from 100 guns a week to more than 5000 guns a week. IO Inc is hoping that Eduardo can help expand and optimize their product lines, reduce waste and improve quality. Here’s what he’s working with . . .
IO invited journalists to their Sunshine State base to sample products both old and new and meet with company officials. Most of the products that IO Inc submitted to the assembled crows were existing guns, like the AKM247 (AK), and its many variants, the M214 Sniper (AK), the M214 Nano (AK) and the M215 (AR).
IO has added an under-folding and side-folding stock option to their AKM247 models (the AKM247-UF and AKM247-SF). They’re also working on upping production of the M214 Nano (currently only 10 a day), gearing-up within the next few months.
