It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved founder and owner of Fulton Armory, Clint McKee Senior.
Clint founded Fulton Armory over 34 years ago. With passion and determination, it grew into a successful business. He loved and appreciated his work family over these many decades. Clint truly was a man for others.
Clint always held a deep love and appreciation for his country; at the age of 20, he drove cross-country on a motorcycle, spending a year learning more about the intricacies of his massive, unique, diverse nation.
His family, friends, and colleagues all knew of his amazing spirit and concern for others. Clint had an incredible sense of humor and would make you laugh one way or another, even if it was at his own expense. Clint was simply a joy to be around with his generous, selfless spirit. He will be dearly missed and will forever live in our hearts. Clint was our treasure. The man was a genius.
Clint was a larger-than-life man. He was extremely passionate with his craft and had an unrelenting curiosity to learn more about the rifles he loved so much. Many had the opportunity to have a conversation with him as he answered the most detailed of inquiries, displaying a humbleness rarely seen in the industry.
Clint was semi-retired for the past 2 years and entrusted Fulton Armory to his Fulton Armory Staff knowing it was in excellent hands. He passed his knowledge and training to his skillful Armorers. Rich Hall, the Senior Chief Armorer at Fulton Armory for over 20 years along with his son Clint Jr. will continue to carry on the FA tradition of outstanding customer service and masterful craftsmanship with the same passion and dedication he instilled in his entire staff.
His legacy will live on forever at Fulton Armory and his mark on the world will endure. He was the Peerless one…
Rest in Peace!

Wow. Kind of thought it wasn't good when they said he was in bad shape recently. Everything I've ever read aboot him points to a true class act and great guy. We need more like him in this world.

Thank you for keeping us updated. Prayers for family and friends coming.

A fine rifle, and an even better legacy. Fulton Armory is top notch, and looks to be in good hands.

God be good to him. I was one of the fortunate ones to have questions about my M-14 variants answered by him (and others at Fulton).

Another great lost to our Nation.

So very sorry to hear this. I just bought a Fulton receiver and received it last week. Seems like a lot of the men of my generation are departing. Part of getting older.
