Q:

What is the Richland Arms Company?

A:

The Richland Arms Company was based in Blissfield, Michigan from the 1960s to the mid 1980s. The company imported a range of Spanish and Italian shotguns and pistols. They are no longer in business.

Little information about the Richland Arms Company is available, as they went out of business long before the internet was common in households. According to the book "Blissfield" by Bob Barringer, Thomas Hoagland Jr. founded the company. The family was previously established in Blissfield with their Richland Furs business, which remained in operation until 1990. The company mostly imported pistols and shotguns, though there are some listings for long rifles.
