Inaccuracies on Wikipedia about Phoenix Arms

Postby Flowmaster » Thu Aug 25, 2016 8:33 pm

I looked at this today:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Arms
It says that the MP-25 is still made (it isn't) and that Bruce Jennings is the manager, but has no source to prove it.

Can someone change it? I tried to edit it but I can't figure out the whole coding thing.

I fixed it and the article just after you posted this. Then they changed it back. So I fixed it again and left more detailed notes about why. Hopefully they leave it alone this time.

That's so weird. Show me a source that Bruce Lee Jennings had anything to do with that business.

The idiot source that thinks that literally ALL ROF companies are the same, made the same guns, and were all the same people.

Basically, ignorant people that know nothing but don't let that stop them from sharing their expert opinion.

Very curious: in comparing versions of the article, I don't see any revision tennis matches. Can they just delete the history of unwanted edits?

The article says,"Phoenix was founded and owned by George's ex-wife, his children, four of his grandchildren, and by Raven's former general manager.".

The manager was David Brazeau who is currently the 100% private owner of Phoenix. My guess (and PLEASE correct me if you have info) is that the statement is correct as of 1991 but that Brazeau later bought them out, though they may be still involved in some shadow capacity.

wiki is pretty light on details. especially when it comes to Jim and Bruces relationship, What went down as far as riverside goes and George's involvement in it.

Then again its pretty difficult to comprehend the gravity of what was going on across the entire state and what was really going on.
