Seems like they're still in business. Pretty sure I can still go online and buy lots of guns, suppressors (w/ the right paperwork), etc. In fact, if I had a bunch of cash right about now...
The pdf posted below is a suit filed on behalf of an individual, not quite the same as being shut down by BATF. I own a business. Been sued myself. It happens. Get over it.
Unless Will has something to share or you hear it from a reputable news source (and no, TMZ doesn't count), please move on. Nothing to see here.
Will if you're reading this crap, we're really not a bunch of morons. If I may say so, it boils down to the fact that we like you and Red Jacket and we hope you're around for a while. If it makes us sound like a bunch of fanboys sometimes, well sorry 'bout that
Stop the gossip. Stop eating our own.
Will. Your reading this. Stop grinding your teeth.
I need a suppressor. Remember me when this is all over.

Will's affairs are his, and none of our business. I know Will to be a straight arrow.
That is all I have to say.

At some point in 2010 or 2011, and upon information and belief, Hayden (either alone or with other members of Red Jacket, Inc.) fraudulently transferred all assets, interest and goodwill out of Red Jacket, Inc. and into Red Jacket Firearms, L.L.C.
About 20 years ago, we transferred our business from a sole proprietorship into a corporation. We also got the proverbial microscope up the hind end asking for all the reasons we were making this switch. Our business was in some backwater Smalltown USA type of setting that no one knew about, and this happened 20 years ago.
I am only sure that the standards are more strict now then they were then. From what I've read, it seems that there was a mix up in transferring the firearms from RJF(Red Jacket Firearms) Inc to RJF LLC. One thing to keep in mind, is that corporations are there own entity. Even though Will may have owned both the RJF Inc and RJF LLC, they are still considered to be 2 different entities. It is the same thing as transferring from one person to the other.
Either way, I'm proud to know Will even if it is only through cyberspace.

To put all of this into perspective, the organization that busted Red Jacket's balls over paperwork that didn't exactly match the inventory, is itself responsible for intentionally facilitating the transfer of thousands of firearms to murderers, drug dealers, and the like. Not to mention the slaughter of innocents in the early to mid 90's, and in other less well-publicized incidents over the years. The accusations against RJF have no credibility regardless of what machinations they may have had to agree to in order to stay in business. This episode is reflective of nothing other than the fact if the agency that regulates your business says to jump through this hoop, you jump through the hoop.
really ? TMZ ? ok , about 2 years ago, in the face of a brand new contract with Discovery , wanting to both take care of my friends and raise a little money to church up the shop I formed a new company , RJF LLC with 4 partners . Steph and I held a 70 % interest , sold 10 % pieces to Joe , Charlie and Vince . THe FFL for the LLC is in the name of the company . When the new company's ffl came in , I transferred over the inventory to it , mailed in the old ffl , went forth and did business . nothings missing , never was . why it's some big new's at the Enquirer , I'll never know . lawsuit ? please , it's about a 10 % piece of a retail store that closed down 8 years ago . guy's been disappeared all this time , we get on tv , he wants money . He doesn't want to talk about his part in how/why the store closed though and I suppose I need to let the lawyers sort that out . little luck it'll end up in his conviction

Local and county cops had surrounded a house they suspected contained a large amount of drugs and guns.
The city cops sent their K-9 in...he found a bunch of dope.
The county cops sent their dog in...he found a bunch of guns and ammo.
The BATFE showed up on the scene. They sent their dog in...who promptly came out, pissed on the other two dogs and issued a press release.
