RUAG’s Direct Response To Our Request for Information

first published on April 18, 2019 by


In an effort to provide complete, accurate, and fair information regarding industry news, we reached out to RUAG USA for a response about the legal action taken against PRIME Ammo. The following is RUAG’s direct response to that request.


RUAG Ammotec has taken contractually-defined recourse on Citizens Ammunition, LLC. RUAG has been loading the PRIME brand ammunition for several years. Well over a year ago Citizens stopped paying RUAG for the ammunition it sold and has refused to make any additional payments on the debt owed. This has forced RUAG to exercise its contractual rights through litigation and product sales.

PRIME Ammunition is delinquent on payments for more than 1.2 million rounds of ammunition sold and received. PRIME’s practice of selling and receiving the product but refusing to pay caused RUAG to act to protect its interests. Any statements, claims or representations to the contrary are simply false. The full news release can also be found HEREor below.
