RemArms LLC to Consolidate Firearms Operations in LaGrange, Georgia 

Thursday, November 30th, 2023

LaGrange – November 30, 2023 – The iconic Remington Firearms brand was founded in 1816, and today Remington Firearms (RemArms) operates as one of the United States’ largest domestic producers of shotguns and rifles. Chief Executive Officer, Kenneth R. D’Arcy today announced that RemArms, America’s oldest firearms brand, will consolidate its firearms operations in LaGrange, Georgia. This will align all firearms manufacturing with our planned global headquarters and world class R&D facility in Georgia, which supports and welcomes the firearms industry.

“We are deeply saddened by the closing of the historic facility in Ilion.  We have a dedicated workforce at the Ilion facility, but maintaining and operating those very old buildings is cost prohibitive, and NY’s legislative environment remains a concern for our industry. In the coming months, we expect to be working with our Ilion employees and their representative on transition issues.” said Ken D’Arcy, RemArms CEO.

[Prosperity, South Carolina, USA – October 31, 2023] – Jacob Grey Firearms, an up-and-coming name in firearms innovation, proudly introduces the TWC 9 (Throwback With Capacity), a double-stack 1911 platform handgun built out of billet and designed to set a new standard in the world of handguns. The TWC 9, with its exceptional features and meticulous craftsmanship, promises to deliver an unparalleled shooting experience for discerning handgun enthusiasts. 

At the heart of the TWC 9 is a 4.25″ stainless steel bull barrel, meticulously engineered for precision and performance. This barrel ensures both accuracy and durability, making it ideal for any shooting scenario. By utilizing a Nowlin ramp, this barrel ensures repetition, durability and accuracy.  Making it ideal for any shooting scenario you’re faced with.

What truly sets the TWC 9 apart is its fully CNC machined lower grip and upper frame, both crafted from aerospace-grade billet 7075 aluminum. This exceptional material choice not only enhances the pistol’s structural integrity but also reduces weight, providing a comfortable and balanced shooting experience.  Utilizing our close tolerance aerospace roots, the TWC 9 fit is tight and smooth resulting in a flat shooting handgun that easily stays on target. 

One of the standout features of the TWC 9 is its CRT™ (Controlled Radius Trigger). Crafted from billet aluminum, this trigger is CNC machined as a single monolithic part, ensuring smooth, crisp and consistent 3.5lb trigger pulls, shot after shot. 

The TWC slide, another masterpiece of engineering, is machined from stainless steel and treated with a salt bath nitriding process. This not only results in a lustrous and lasting finish but also adds to the handgun’s overall rugged durability.

“Jacob Grey is all about a passion for excellence. This TWC 9 is a throwback to our first love, the 1911. It is the pinnacle of our pursuit of the perfect weapon” said Jacob Brackett, CEO for Jacob Grey Firearms.

Jay Duncan, VP of Marketing for Jacob Grey, commented, “The TWC 9 is the result of extensive research and market landscape analysis to find the sweet spot of quality, value, and features to meet the demands of discerning handgun owners.”

Todd Neice, President of Sales & Marketing “I wanted to utilize our tech and aerospace history and combine it with the Jacob Grey Custom 1911 successes to build a production gun that is priced right and second to none in quality. Once you get your hands on this firearm you will quickly see that we succeeded.”

The TWC 9 effortlessly combines style and function. Designed to be optic-ready for both RMR and RMSc red dot optic mounting, it accommodates the needs of modern shooters who seek accuracy and versatility. The firearm also features an XS Sights tritium front sight, with the rear sight integrated into the optic plate or filler plate, both of which are suppressor height.

Additional enhancements include an integrated flared magazine well for quick and easy reloads, an ambidextrous safety for versatile use, and a full two-piece guide rod system for added reliability.  The TWC accepts standard 2011 magazines. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the TWC 9 is its remarkable affordability, with a retail price of just $2,499.99. Jacob Grey is dedicated to providing exceptional value without compromising on quality or performance.

The TWC 9 is a testament to Jacob Grey’s commitment to innovation and excellence in the firearms industry. It embodies the company’s dedication to delivering top-tier handguns that meet the highest standards of quality and performance.
