Welcome to Crankfire Systems TM
September 2021 Updates: Price increases have been held off as long as possible, but material costs this year are double what I paid in 2020. And, my supplier says expect more increases ahead. Add to that, my machine time costs are rising with increased tooling costs for my CNC machining vendors. With reluctance, I have raised the prices on all Crankfire models as of August 1st. First time in six years, but I can't absorb any more of my increased costs.
Demand has been at record levels in 2021. Standard Crankfires are coming available regularly of late, and I am contacting the waiting list in order of earliest date. I will be focusing on this model for the month. The list is getting shorter, but new inquiries come in still, so please bear with me. Only a few Crankfires can get finished each week. See our Orders page for details on how to get one for your Browning 1917/1919 series firearm.
The Spade Grip Crankfires have slowly come back into the assembly process. New-made back plates are in, and the supply of buffer parts is resolved for a while. I got enough finished to take care of the longest standing requests. Production will become more consistent in time. That said, I am now out of all the spade handle parts- wood grips, tubes and cap screws. Everything is taking a while to get made, as the CNC shops are swamped with work. There will be a gap in production for a bit on the Spade Grip model, sorry to say.
On the M2HB Crankfire, I have sold out of the short production run from early this year. Had quite a few on the waiting list not respond, and it's down to a small number remaining. For the latest updates on these, and also on 1919A6 Stock Adapters, check the Orders page. Use Contact page for more details regarding availability, to confirm your place on the waiting list or to get added on.
ABOUT WAITING LISTS: If you have made an inquiry within the last six months or so, but I could not fill an order on any Crankfire model, you are probably on my waiting list. A number of list folk have not replied when I've had product to offer, so please follow up again with me. Might be going to your spam folder, for example. I fill waiting list orders before I take new sales, but I need to hear back when I contact you in order to do that. Make sure firstname.lastname@example.org is not being blocked from your inbox. I will recontact those who did not respond, but I have to bump you for a while and move on, should I not hear back.
Yes, Crankfire Systems is back in business with new ownership, since 2014. We are producing these with all new made components. Other than different personnel actually producing and assembling the Crankfire, all the same quality and design features remain, and styled after the original, early production.
We began with keeping the production in the state of Texas. While our contacts and partners there have helped us get back on the market, necessity has required us to bring all production and assembly up to our main division. (Our parent company, one might say.) We are serving the marketplace from the great Northwest, with all components made in the USA.
