    Is Davis Industries still around?
    I am assisting in a murder case where a Davis Industries .380 was connected (not the murder weapon) to the crime.
    What is the status of this company? The old web page appears down.

    I think they have been out of business for quite a while.

    The only info I can remember of the company is that they were a SNS company.

    My recollection is a law suit . There was a tv news show were they documented that a woman was killed with a lorcin (davis owned) that the serial number didn't exist. It turned out that several employees were taking them off the loading dock by the case before they were recorded and selling the. The show tracked this gun from Cali (where it was made) to NY, Conn or somthing like that where one of those junky .380 was used in a murder. Show was Frontline as I recall.

    They are out of business!

    On another note: AMT had issues for sure but their guns were not potential Hand Grenades! :uhoh:

    You still can find them. They are a cheap, sorry excuse for a gun. But the way there plant was run, it is no wonder that they went out of business.
