Continuing my spotlight on products made by smaller manufacturers in North America, I will be showing you guys a couple of the cool things I have received from the good folks over at Perroz Designs. They are a small outfit in Toronto that are pumping out some seriously interesting items. All of the stitching is top notch and they have been making some laser cut patches for some pretty big names too.
It has been a long time since I have used a non-EO Tech hooded red dot sight. My last go around wasnt a pleasant experience, outside of the non covered emitter, the flimsy hood broke the glass when it was hit off a door frame. It was not a hard hit at all, but it did end up cracking things to the point where it was near impossible to see through it. However, I figured it was time to give a different brand a try which is why I picked up a Vortex Razor Red Dot.
When it came time to put some iron sights onto my Remington 870 build with top rail, I looked at a ton of the different options out there. I knew I wanted nice and low sights that would work with the Vortex Razor reddot I put on the build and it turns out there aren’t many lower height BUIS’s out there so it made my job easier.
With the current state of our economy, it’s always good to see companies keeping their manufacturing within North America instead of following the growing trend of outsourcing their labour and production. The major thing to consider for those who do want to start trying to manufacture goods within the United States or Canada is what pitfalls might lie ahead of them and how can they learn from the mistakes of others since it seems like every month I hear another horror story coming from friends and others within the industry. This article is going to take place in the form of an interview between Patrick York Ma from MOTUS, Prometheus Design Werx (not up at the time of writing), and formerly the founder and creator of Triple Aught Design, and Dave Watson from Fight and Flight Tactical. I picked both of these guys for the interview due to their experiences in trying to bring manufacturing back home from overseas. I do want to clarify that many countries make great gear, some of which I am proud to own. This article is about companies who are striving to keep manufacturing in the country they reside in. Making jobs within their local community.
