As far as I know, and up to about two years ago, Smith & Wesson was NOT a union shop.

300 handguns a day sounds about right given their equipment capabilities. Those would be, I would suspect, the dedicated lines making 300 a day.

If you convert the other lines to make handguns, I suspect the number would got a lot higher.

In order to manufacture more handguns, they would have to make capital investments in exceptionally expensive machinery, and that would not just take money, it would also take a lot of time, months if not more from order to installation to production.
