Please note: due to the tragic shootings from the past few years, I cannot sell custom made AR-Patterned rifles to individuals under 21 years of age. While age for ownership of a rifle is 18 under federal law, it has recently been made 21 here in California.
thank you for your understanding.
***please be aware that the cost of a custom build may exceed that of commercially available firearms due to the "custom" nature of the build.
While the cost may at times seem excessive, please realize that any custom build that I undertake requires me to ensure that everything is 100% satisfactory as each build is ultimately a reflection of my reputation and as such, I will not cut corners in order to reduce the cost. each build is treated as if it were my own firearm.***
