Hudson nearing the end?

Recommended Posts

Hudson was originally supposed to display at SHOT Show but their area is empty and they were removed from the exhibitors list.  

Recoil reached out to them to ask about it and they responded that they couldn't afford to make the trip.   They do mention being sued and having a dispute with a parts supplier.  

Recoil also found the lawsuit.  The part supplier is claiming that they were not paid over 300,000 dollars for parts that they delivered.   

Hudson also lost an investor just before they were supposed to receive that funding.  


Hudson could be in serious trouble.   Please read the article at the link to see more.  Apparently they can't fix warranty guns and return them right now either.

Hudson is pretty much done..... if you have one and hope to get parts you might want to go ahead and buy another one to have a "parts kit" available......

I hate to see any American Firearms Manufacturer go under. It looks like they made bad business decisions. They should, at the very least, be getting owners guns back to them if they are financially unable to fix them. That’s a big black eye that will be tough to recover from.

I don't even think they have the money to ship them back.  As for fixing, them, they don't have parts because they didn't pay their supplier.  

And I agree.  I hate to see them go out.

It’s such a cool design, hopefully a larger company will buy their IP and start producing them.

I had that thought too.   If someone with a real R&D budget were to buy the rights and begin manufacture, what could we possibly see come from it.

      I'm considering a CMMG banshee but after calling them I was told they mostly build to order so it's unlikely I can find one in a store. I'm hoping someone might have one they would be willing to let me try out.
      I really hate to buy another weapon without at least laying hands on it first.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks

      Something that I discovered recently was that, surprisingly despite the smaller size of my hands, the Glock 19 platform that I had carried religiously for nearly 20 years really wasn't the best platform for me.  Shocker!
      What I discovered was that the longer grip length of the Glock 17 not only put the grip's palm swell/hump in a location that fit my hand better, but I also benefited from using the the medium back strap as it gave me more surface area to get my support hand onto.  More support hand on the grip itself and not overlapping my dominant hand fingers means more actual contact with the gun and therefore better recoil management, less muzzle rise, and faster split times.
      My world had basically been turned on its ear.
      While I still wasn't a fan of the additional length of the 17 for IWB carry, especially with a compensator hanging off the end of it, the Glock model 45 suddenly made a heck of a lot more sense to me than it ever had previously.
      Consequently, I've started to part ways with most of my Glock 19s and have picked up two G45s as their replacement.  The added bonus of course is that the G45's slide is the same length as the G19's, so all of my holsters work just fine with them.
       
      This gun is my "pimped out" carry rig for when I'm feeling a little extra sassy and don't mind a little extra bulk on me.  I sent the slide off to DP Custom Works and had Doug mill it for an RMR and mill the front top of the slide with extra cocking serrations to make press-checks a little easier.  While he had the slide, he re-finished it in a tough black nitride, which looks fantastic and isn't as slick as the factory Gen 5 black nDLC.
      I added a ZEV Gen 5 curved trigger with their tuned ZEV Pro connector, ZEV suppressor height sights, a Crux Ordnance oversized mag release, a Silencerco threaded barrel, a Parker Mountain Machine comp, and hung one of my 1,000 lumen Surefire X300-UB lights off of it.
      The whole thing rides very easily in a Squared Away Customs "FOXTROT" outside the waistband holster or a Legacy Firearms Company light-bearing CRONUS inside the waistband holster.
       
      As for how it shoots, I've got the dot set for a 10-yard zero and stacking rounds in a cloverleaf within a 1-inch circle at that distance isn't a difficult task for me.
      ** Edited to Add: These photos were taken with an Agency trigger installed, before I swapped it out for the Zev curved trigger to keep things consistent across all of my Glocks **

      I saw someone mention an 80% revolver on another forum. Anyone ever heard of something that resembles This? Of course they had no links or detailed info on it.
