Based in Sturgis, South Dakota, Cor-Bon/Glaser Ammunition originated when Peter Pi Sr. started making handgun hunting ammo in 1982 because the commonly available ammunition at that time was performing poorly.[1] Pi noticed that hollow point ammunition would not expand and went about creating a line of ammunition with reliable expansion.

In 2017 the Company was sold to TA Perrine and moved to Wooster, OH.

CorBon Law Enforcement Training Center[edit]

On June 23, 2011 the company opened the CorBon Law Enforcement Training Center (CLETC) in Sturgis, South Dakota. The center has several shooting ranges to train law enforcement officers.[2] CLETC closed in 2015 due to a lack of business.

Original Products[edit]

Cor-Bon designed and developed the .32 NAA, essentially a .380 ACP case necked-down to a .32 caliber bullet, and the NAA Guardian .32 NAA pocket pistol in partnership with North American Arms (NAA).[5] At the 2004 SHOT Show, Cor-Bon and NAA introduced their jointly developed .25 NAA.[6]

.400 Cor-Bon is a Cor-Bon cartridge that was developed in 1997.[7] In the same manner as the .32 NAA, it was based on a .45 ACP case necked-down to .40.[8]

Cor-bon is owned by Dakota Ammo Incorporated, makers of firearms and ammunition.[9]
