Are the California "Ring of Fire" Pistol Makers Still in Business?

I can't find much on Raven, Jennings, Davis, Lorcin, etc. Did insurance premiums finally do them in? Thanks.

Some are gone. Name, owner, and location changes kept some alive.

Jim Waldorf the owner of Lorcin Engineering -- what a loser. Production control was so lax at his company that more than 5,700 guns were stolen over a two year period. Waldorf and his plant manager John Davis deserved a long stay in prison over that one!
