Updated – Special note for California and New York residents: We now are offering AR platform rifles that are legal to own in California and New York. They do not need to be registered as “assault rifles.”  We have a video that explains the new law. Mike and I had some fun with this one, but the facts given are accurate.

California / New York Legal AR

This is our first offering conforming to the new California and New York standards. Because it does not have any of the “evil features” that they use to define an “assault rifle, it can be legally sold in these states and does not need to be registered as an assault weapon.  It has a standard magazine release button rather than the “bullet button.” It uses the “featureless” Thordsen stock which looks a bit odd at first glance but is actually quite comfortable to shoot. Since they are currently the only manufacturer that makes this style of stock, they are quite expensive and difficult to get.

This offering is for a 5.56/.223 caliber rifle, but Mike can build it in any of the AR-15 calibers. (.300 Blackout, 7.62×39, 6.5 Grendel, etc.) The .308 will be available soon.


16 inch chrome moly barrel with target crowned muzzle ( no threads or muzzle device)

13.5 inch slimline keymod rail (Noveske style)

Thordsen stock with buffer tube cover (has QD mounts to add a sling)

3-9X40 Barksa Scope

10 round magazine

$779 – Special price $729

6.5 Grendel Long Range Rifle in Carbine Length


The 6.5 Grendel is the caliber that the military should be using as their primary combat rifle.

The 6.5mm Grendel (6.5×39mm) is an intermediate cartridge designed by Arne Brennan, Bill Alexander, and Janne Pohjoispää as a low recoil, high accuracy, 200-800 yard cartridge specifically for the AR-15 platform. It is an improved variation of the 6.5mm PPC. Since its introduction, it has proven to be a versatile design and is now expanding out into other platforms including bolt-action rifles and the Kalashnikov system.

Firing factory loaded ammunition loaded with bullets ranging from 90 to 129 grains(5.8–8.4 g), its muzzle velocity ranges from 2,500 ft/s (760 m/s) with 129- and 130-grain (8.4 g) bullets to 2,900 ft./s (880 m/s) with 90 gr (5.8 g) bullets (similar in velocity to a 5.56 mm 77-grain (5.0 g) round). This is a long range round and is still supersonic at 1000 yards, making it an excellent long range shooter.

The name “6.5mm Grendel” was a trademark owned by Alexander Arms until it was legally released to allow the cartridge to become SAAMI standardized.

This is a collector “must have”

IMGP0810IMGP0809 (1)IMGP0805 (1)IMGP0807 (1)

This is the last and nicest of our AK-47s. It was built using Polish military parts that appear to have come from a rifle that was never issued. The furniture has a beautiful tiger stripe pattern. and has a rare chrome plated bolt and carrier. It has been assembled using a new American made receiver, barrel and Tapco trigger group.  This is one of a kind. It shoots the low priced and easy to obtain 7.62X39 round. One available.

$729.00 – now $699


We have 2 of these available, one shown with light color wood and one with a dark finish. Both were Bulgarian military weapons that were in unissued condition. They have been assembled using new American made receivers, barrels, and Tapco trigger groups. The AK 74 parts are getting harder to find as not as many were imported as AK 47s. They shoot the 5.45X39 round which has ballistics that are very similar to the American 5.56.



$699 – closeout priced at $639

IMGP0823 (1)IMGP0821 (1)IMGP0822IMGP0824 (1)

Loss Bleeder -Basic 5.56 Carbine

imgp0926 imgp0924 imgp0925 imgp0927

This is our version of a basic .223/5.56 AR-15 carbine. We call it our “Loss Bleeder.” Most of our offerings come fully equipped, but sometimes people already have optics or would like to “dress” their own gun so we are offering a limited number of “basic” carbines. Unlike most entry level ARs, we include a 10 inch Aluminum quad rail instead of a plastic hand guard. All of the functional components used in this gun are the same ones we use in our higher priced models. No optic is included though we have them available as an upgrade.


16 inch chrome moly barrel

10 inch quad rail with front cap

Sport side upper receiver (no forward assist or dust cover)

Standard AR pistol grip and adjustable stock

30 round magazine

Free red dot optic now included – $79 value. (not shown)

$499 – Special price $469

We are featuring three different AR-15 pistols in different configurations. They can be ordered as shown for the listed prices or you can “mix and match” the uppers and lowers. What this means is, for example, you like the one with the 7.5 inch barrel but would prefer the lower shown on the 10.5 inch model, it can be switched out. (prices will vary – call Mike for specific pricing.) Optics can also be swapped if desired.
