    Hmmm a good question. My guess would be that they decided they shouldn't comment on it in a public fashion at the time.

    Apparently pulled, perhaps too much F Troop bashing in it ?

    I'd like to know- I was going to order a Cav-aid 2008 lower this weekend.

    :(

    Press Release, Feel Free to Distribute:

    For many years Cavalry Arms Corporation (“Cavalry”) has strived to manufacture and sell quality firearms to the public. We have always strived to put our experience from the field into making quality products that the average shooter can afford, while still bringing innovations to the industry. We are dedicated to providing the best possible products and customer service to the firearms market.

    On February 27, 2008, agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives executed a federal search warrant on the business premises of Cavalry and on the private residence of its CEO, Shawn Nealon. We have immediately engaged legal counsel to resolve this matter with the federal government. Cavalry is confident that all its conduct has been lawful in carrying out its business activities. The Government has yet to share with the company details of the investigation or the cause precipitating the search warrant. Cavalry is cooperating with the federal investigation. To date no accusations of wrongdoing have been filed against Cavalry or any of its employees regarding alleged illegal activity.

    While we are waiting for a resolution to this situation, Cavalry Arms will remain open for business and continue firearms operations under its Manufacturer’s FFL. Unfortunately, the federal government seized business files, computers, and inventory from Cavalry during the execution of the search warrant. As a result, Cavalry has been forced to reconstitute its resources, and we expect to be fully operational in the near future. In the meantime, we still carry firearm parts and emergency medical products for sale. We appreciate your patience, and we thank everyone who has shown us support during this turbulent time.

    Thank you Sinistral.

    I will be buying some furniture this weekend then.

    Please let us know as soon as you are able to operate once more.

    I, for one, am still hoping for a Cav Aid lower.

    Query:
    Have you contacted John McCain, John Kyl and your representative?

    This is an election year and they should be willing to help get answers. On the information I have been able to find, this is a VERY unusual situation/case. I believe you may need political clout to get a Federal Bureaucracy (BATFE) to budge.

    My 2 cents.....

    Having McCain respond to this, one way or the other, would be very interesting. For a candidate to openly criticize or embrace an agency of the federal government is no small matter. Those who revile the BATFE would embrace him, those who wish the BATFE took away all guns would become weary of him...

    Then again, those who don't revile the BATFE more than likely know nothing about the Cavalry Arms raid... So the risk-benefit ratio is lopsided for McCain...

    Perhaps he may help if properly provoked...

    For better or worse, I just sent this message off to all my Congressmen:
    I don't know that it'll do any good, but I don't think it could possibly hurt.

    maybe someone here will answer why the old thread was removed. I am curious to know why. Obviously if certain comments were to vitrillously (is that even a word?) aimed at the ATF, then say so. I am sure no one wants to risk the smallest chance of getting cav in more hot water but you cannot avoid repeating the problem if you don't know what the problem is.

    And maybe we can get a new sticky, to make it easy to check for new information.

    Financial terrorism. A very accurate definition of it. The sound of crickets from the nra is deafening. Any other industry or politicized entity that was the victim of such blatant terrorism would have it's supporting groups screaming from the rafters.

    If you want the government to behave itself and obey the constitution, YOU HAVE TO USE PUBLICITY. You have to get loud, stir people up, and STAY mad until the government gets scared and backs off. The nra apologists sound like none of that applies. They don't want to deal with the fact that nra is corrupted and not a true friend of the 2nd amendment. I can find no legitimate reason why nra wasn't screaming from the rafters (using ALL it's publications and websites) beginning on the very DAY of this evil raid. The nra apologists will invent reasons to make themselves feel better but the ANTI gunners would not have cowered and wasted a good opportunity like this.

    A little while ago Cav Arms sent out requests that their comments on the case be pulled down. The THR thread disappeared the same day that happened, and the thread contained quotes from the stuff Cav Arms had posted on AFCOM.
