Vigilant Gear Holdings has completed the acquisition of Primary Weapons Systems.
Vigilant Gear Holdings, based out of Georgia, in 2019 purchased Lone Wolf Distributors, now Lone Wolf Arms, located in Priest River, ID. While both Primary Weapons Systems and Lone Wolf Arms are in Idaho, they will be run independently as separate entities.
Primary Weapons Systems (PWS), the largest firearms manufacturer in Idaho, has been headquartered in Boise since it was founded in 2008. Dean Sylvester, founder, PWS said, “I am very happy with the acquisition. The values of PWS have always been innovation, quality and customer service. These values will continue to define PWS as it grows, and I feel confident that Vigilant Gear Holdings will only grow these values and expand the reach of the PWS brand.”
Vigilant Gear Holdings has invested capital into Primary Weapons Systems by purchasing a titanium and stainless-steel 3D printer and a barrel blank manufacturing machine, furthering the ability of PWS to manufacture more than 90 percent of components in-house.
CEO Nate Treadaway said, “PWS is known as an evolutionary design and manufacturing company. Our goal is to continue pushing the envelope while keeping the core values of PWS. We have a variety of exciting new products releasing this year, and we are excited to branch out to different sectors in the firearms market.”
