History of Aguila Ammo

Established by Industrias Tecnos in 1961, Aguila Ammunition manufactures firearms cartridges in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, commonly known as the City of Eternal Spring for its gorgeous climate. In fact, prior to the arrival of the Spanish, this was where the Aztec ruling class made their home during the dog days of summer. Aguila develops ammo for self defense, sport shooting, hunting, law enforcement and military use, and has become one of the largest rimfire manufacturers in the world. They’re also known for their sponsorship of the Aguila Cup shooting event, a multi-discipline shooting sports tournament.

How Aguila Ammo Achieves Quality

Known for reliability and performance, Aguila takes pride in their extensive process for sourcing raw materials – guaranteeing that when only choice materials enter the factory, only choice products leave it. In 2011, they partnered with Texas Armament & Technology for a facility-wide modernization and optimization project, with the goal of redefining ammo production and reliability. In particular, the company sought to orient themselves closer to the military and law enforcement markets.

However, this led to a modernization of the entire Aguila line. Upgrades to the manufacturing facilities include clearer quality control directives, moisture-sensitive equipment, more frequent die changes, and an all new, state-of-the-art .22 round facility. Texas Armament & Technology is the sole American distributor of Aguila. This part of the relationship was established to provide the American market with a direct point of contact and for greater responsiveness to any concerns regarding quality.

Quality issues are taken so seriously that, in the event of a serious quality complaint, Texas Armament & Technology will send suspected faulty ammunition back to Mexico for ballistics testing. The company aims to resolve claims regarding quality within a time period of two weeks.

One of the reasons Aguila might be synonymous with quality is that it was originally a Mexican production factory for Remington. The plant opened with a staff of 70 in 1961 – meaning anyone who has fired a single round of Remington in the last 30 years has a good chance of having fired off an Aguila in a Remington box. Over one billion cartridges come out of this factory annually. Aguila is the primary supplier to the Mexican police and military, with its products sold on five continents.

Part of the company’s success lies in the ammunition shortages characterizing the Bush and Obama Administrations. American thirst for ammunition greatly exceeded the nation’s capacity to produce. Aguila, among other international manufacturers, was happy to step in and meet the demand. Unlike others, Aguila kept their focus squarely on providing Olympic-quality ammunition in abundance. In particular, they distinguished themselves with .22 rimfire rounds. It’s this attention to quality that has allowed them to maintain this customer base after the shortage.

Aguila is Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI) and Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small-Arms (CIP) compliant.

Aguila Ammunition and Mexican Gun Ownership Laws

It’s curious that a Mexican company would provide such high-quality ammunition since firearms ownership is, after all, pretty close to illegal in the country. The Secretariat of National Defense tightly controls who can and cannot own and operate a firearm, with most Mexicans not able to exercise the right. Even when civilians can have firearms, they are restricted to smaller calibers, with the amount of ammunition they have extremely limited. Firearms always stay at home, with open and concealed carry both illegal for civilians. Even competitive shooters require transport permits in Mexico.

Indeed, Mexico is a bit of a cautionary tale for Second Amendment defenders in the United States. The Mexican Constitution of 1857 guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms in article 10. But the Mexican Constitution of 1917, however, decoupled the right to keep arms from the right to bear arms. This effectively made firearms ownership legal in theory alone, placing them under such heavy restrictions that few Mexicans are able to keep and bear arms in the way most Americans would understand it. In 1971, Article 10 was amended once again to restrict the right to keep arms in the home alone for civilians. In 1972, the Mexican federal government claimed the right to oversee all firearms in the country, heavily restricting even ownership in the home. Mexicans are almost never permitted to own more than two firearms.

Mere ownership of firearms in Mexico is a Byzantine process. A firearm ownership permit must be acquired before the weapon. This requires submission of a proof of identity in the form of a birth certificate or military service card, proof of income and employment, a criminal background check, proof of address, a government-issued photo ID, proof of membership in a hunting or shooting club, and a copy of one’s Unique Key of Population Registry (basically the Mexican equivalent of a Social Security card). Once the purchase permit has been acquired, the recipient must pay for a second permit for the specific purchase, as well as pay for a registration form. Only then can one purchase a firearm from the lone firearms dealer in the country – the Mexican federal government. A transit permit, good for 24 to 72 hours, is then required to get the firearm home.

Aguila Ammunition’s Unusual Options

Aguila isn’t just one of the biggest ammunition manufacturers in Mexico. It’s perhaps the premier ammunition manufacturer in all of Latin America. It is also one of the biggest manufacturers of rimfire ammunition in the entire world. As of 2016, the company offered 21 different rimfire products broken down into three categories: standard, match and special products. The final category includes ultra-rare rounds like .22 Super Colibrí, .22 Winchester Magnum Silver Eagle and 5mm RRM (Remington Rimfire Magnum).

If you’ve never heard of the 5mm RRM, you’re not alone. In 1969, the bottleneck rimfire round dropped for the Model 591 and 592 rifles. America didn’t exactly take to this unusual round, leading to Remington dropping it in 1982. Like many weird rounds, however, a small niche of fanatics swear by the 5mm RRM – which is likely why Aguila started making it again in 2008. The round is in such high demand that Aguila has a portion of its FAQ page dedicated to assuring the public they are making as many as it can, as quickly as possible.

This isn’t the only unusual round manufactured by Aguila. In fact, they have a unique line of shotgun shells known as Minishells. These 1.75” shells come in 7.5 shot and buckshot. You can also purchase it in a slug variation. When employed for personal defense, they can greatly improve your favorite shotgun’s capacity.

Now sitting on 120 acres and employing 870 people, the factory has grown considerably since its inception and operates around the clock to meet high production demands. A lead tower produces shotgun pellets using gravity. A shooting range and ballistics lab allow for onsite product development. 18 tons of powder sit on the site at any given time, with lightning rods and an early-warning system providing an extra measure of safety in this thunderstorm-heavy area of Mexico.

Their notable products include the .22 SSS (Sniper SubSonic), a heavy .22 LR cartridge that creates no sonic crack. The .22 Colibri is a short .22 rimfire with a primer, but no propellant. The .17 PMC/Aguila is a necked-down .22 LR casing that can be shot in a rifle chambered for .17 HM2. And the 12 Gauge Minishell is ideal for competition clay shooting, with less recoil and a quiet report.

Aguila is a distinct brand of ammo that can truly say its quality is unlike any other. This along with its unique product offerings and preference among shooters and governments around the world are the many reasons Aguila Ammunition will remain a top competitor in the ammo industry.

Customer Reviews

  • Rodge said:

    The service was excellent. The performance of the Aguila .223 Rem FMJ ammo is superior to ammo that cost more. It is excellent quality brass and I've not had a single failure to date in over 1250 rounds fired over a three month period.

  • Zombiesrnuts said: had the best price per round for the Aguila and also was pleasantly surprised on the ease and quickness of the order and delivery! I'll always shop here first!

  • JunkYard said:

    Im amazed at the super fast service! I will continue my shopping at Thanks.

  • Amber said:

    Got this to shoot so shot about 50 rounds. 4 out of the 50 rounds went off in the chamber and got powder burns to the face. Never will I buy this again. I have 2 of the casings where it blew out the back. This is not safe to shoot.

  • Rutcutter said:

    I haven't shot at 100 yards yet. 30 and 50 yards i can keep a quarter size to a 1 1/2 hole in my target. Shooting out of a ruger 10/22 precision.

  • 841 said:

  • Myron said:

    Very nice and perfectly fit for me

  • tex hunter said:

    quality ammo this brand is a sleeper

  • elizabeth said:

    well qualified

  • John said:

    I ordered two calibers of ammo for handguns, .25 auto and .32 auto. Both arrived within a few days of ordering. I have fired some of the .25 auto on the target range. It performed flawlessly. The .32 auto is the same type ammo and same manufacturer. I expect it will perform as well.

  • Sol said:

    I have never see so many jams on my Browning Buckmark. all other ammo goes through flawlessly. With the Agila Super Extra ammo, every mag produces at least one jam. Failure to feed was the most common, which also caused either the copper top to dent, or the shell casing. I gave away half the box of 500 to a friend with a .22 RF revolver. Never again.

  • Bill said:

    Nothing to say

  • Jeff said:

    Preformed very well. Enjoyed a day @ the range

  • garmartin said:

    Works very good, no problems with Glock 21 & 30.

  • manny said:

    After two purchases of this ammo, can only recommend if you enjoy cleaning your guns after every shooting session. Good price, but very dirty, caused failure to feeds in semi auto rifle and pistol, gummed up revolver cylinder enough to where I could barely push rounds in. Seems to be covered in a rubbery, gummy substance. If you can't afford anything else (like I couldn't), better than nothing. You'll spend the savings on solvent cleaning your guns.

  • Paul K said:

    See above

  • Heath said:

    I was really happy with these, zero issues.

  • Ammodude4u2 said:

    A pleasant surprise for quality in value provided and accuracy. Performed well in 3 different firearms ( 2 pistols, 1 carbine style rifle) . Had previous excellent experience with various loads of .22 caliber offerings from this manufacturer.

  • Thomas said:

    Just bought a Rossi 22RS and only had one 10rnd mag that came with it, took about 3 days & 7 local ammo stores not having any before I found after a short two day wait my order showed up on my door and I couldn't be happier I will be ordering more thank you much appreciated from NH

  • RLKill said:

    Great ammo, I shoot Aguila ammo all the time in different guns. .22LR is a fun round to shoot target and hunt small varmints with. Can't go wrong with Aguila Ammo. I would have given all 5 stars, but with ammo prices being what they are, there is no good value for now.

  • Ted said:

    Shoots well in my ammo picky Browning 1911 22LR.

  • lizard said:

    I have used these 38 Grn Aguila 22 Super Extra Hollow points in both my Savage 64 semi auto rifle and my Heritage Rough Rider Pistol with Excellent results ! They feed flawlessly in the semi auto and are tack driver rounds out of both weapons ! As hard as it is to source locally Ammo .com had it in stock and got it shipped to me quickly ! Hopefully some 22 Mag shows up in time wood chuck season ? Thanks for the help, much appreciated ! Lizard

  • Richard said:

    Purchased several boxes at Academy months ago, and very pleased. My .22 semi-auto pistols all function flawlessly with this ammo, unlike certain Remington and Winchester products.
