Last weekend CMMG celebrated its 20th anniversary with an event held at its headquarters in Boonville, Missouri. 

Inviting media and industry professionals from across the country, CMMG treated us to a first look at some new products, a tour of their manufacturing facilities, and a range day at their newly constructed private range, “The Outpost”!

We’ll bring the news of their new product as soon as it’s ready for launch (coming very soon) but until then, let’s recap the event!

300-yard shaving cream challenge

Held in the quaint town of Boonville, Missouri, CMMG has been an integral part of the local community for over 20 years. From a reception at the historic Hotel Frederick to a bratwursts-filled dinner at the nearby Isle of Capri, CMMG and the town of Boonville were outstanding hosts all weekend long.

Allowing us a rare tour of CMMG’s newly expanded manufacturing facility, we were given a sneak peek at some of the very cool manufacturing that CMMG is spinning up. We’re excited to see what new products and new capabilities these powerful machines introduce. Bringing more of CMMG’s manufacturing under one roof will undoubtedly result in greater innovation and higher-quality products.

After the tour, CMMG brought us out to their brand new private range – The Outpost. Built just outside of town, The Outpost is a multi-bay private range for CMMG to test new products like their compact action Dissent pistols.

The Outpost featured a taste of everything! My favorite was the 300-yard shaving cream can challenge shot with the CMMG Mk3 Endeavor in 6.5 Creedmoor.

But the fan favorite was definitely the full-auto CMMG guns. Ranging from an AR in .22 LR using the CMMG conversion kits to two full-auto 7.62×39 CMMG Mutants, the full-auto bay never had a dull moment or a short line. 

Third pin…

Sadly, these full-auto guns aren’t for sale – but they are a valuable tool for CMMG. Nothing pushes the extremes of a durability test like shooting non-stop full-auto.

Impressively, the full-auto CMMG Mutants were dumping full mags of 7.62×39 all afternoon, and I never saw a malfunction. 

As CMMG celebrities their 20th anniversary, we’re looking forward to seeing what CMMG has in store for the next 20 years.
