Armscor, a wholly Philippine company, is the largest single producer of the 1911 platform in the world. Yes. The whole world. That’s a lot of what is arguably the world’s most popular handgun. Armscor also produces ammunition on a rather large scale, and one of their very happy clients is the Honduras.
In a recent trip to the country, chairman emeritus Bolo Tuason, President Martin Tuason accompanied by his wife Tammy, Armscor representative Loui Luque, Armscor International Marketing Director Henri Nahoum and Armscor Regional Representative to Honduras Jorge Cohen paid a visit to the president of the Honduras, Porfirio Lobo Sosa and presented him with a souvenir M1911-A2 FS 2-tone caliber 40 S&W Medallion pistol.
The President, in return, pledged continuous business to Armscor, saying that apart from its already large USD 1 Milllion annual orders from the company, it would also consider adding Armscor-produced 5.56 and 7.62 ammunition to the country’s defense budget. The Honduras is Armscor’s largest client in Central America. The exports bring in a substantial amount to the Philippine economy, and help put us on the map as far as firearms and ammunition are concerned.
