The Freedom Group is a holding company which owns several popular gun manufacturers. Freedom Group is owned by Cerberus Capital Management which is based out of New York. Freedom Group At the time of this article, Freedom Group current owns the following companies:
  • Advanced Armament Corporation
  • Barnes Bullets
  • Bushmaster Firearms International
  • Dakota Arms
  • DPMS Panther Arms
  • H & R Firearms
  • Marlin
  • Mountain Khakis
  • Para USA
  • Parker Gunmakers
  • Remington Arms
  • Remington Military
  • Remington LE
  • Remington PMPD

Over the last several years, Freedom Group has been acquiring gun companies of all sizes left and right. Some conspiracy theorists claim Freedom Group is a backed by supporters of an anti-gun movement who are positioning themselves from a strike against gun manufacturing. I personally, don't believe it, but it's a scary thought non the less.

Take a closer look at the companies Freedom Group controls. If they were to effectively halt production from these companies, the effect would be horrendous. Remington produces one of the most popular shotguns in the world. They also produce popular lines of handguns and rifles. Bushmaster and DPMS produce large lines of AR-15s, and Para is among the time producers (number of units shipped) for 1911 handguns. Freedom Group has also expanded their portfolio to include a Barnes Bullets and the Class 3/SOT manufacturer Advanced Armament.

AAC produces a line of high dollar suppressors, short barrel rifles, and designed their own cartridge (300 blackout). With a such a wide portfolio, Freedom Group has a substantial and thriving investment in the firearms industry with no shortage of cash.
