Asheville Area Prepper to Manufacture Guns

Of course the National Geographic special is over, but thought some might find this interesting,
Quote:
Amendment Arms, Inc.

"We Make GREAT Guns"

37 Loop Road,
Arden, NC 28704
828-699-2236
828-552-7438


Hi All:

Ryan Croft and Tom Wise here. Many of you know the both of us as active and vocal members of the Patriot movement. We are both preppers. In fact, Ryan is going to be a featured guest on "Doomsday Preppers" this coming Tuesday, December 11, 2012, 9 PM EST, on the NatGeo Channel.

Ryan has also been a candidate for Asheville City Council, a member of Tea Parties, and a local speaker. Tom has been a campaign manager for Dr. Dan Eichenbaum, a GOP precinct chair, and is founder of the anticommunism KTM. Ryan is a military veteran of some experience, and has a wide range of knowledge in firearms. Tom is a student of business economics, and an experienced investor and businessman.

Today, we are writing you to let you know that we are in the business of manufacturing guns. Ryan, resident inventor and engineer, has devised, and is currently manufacturing, the world?s FIRST hybrid AK47-AR15 semi-automatic weapon!

Ryan calls it the JOSHUA Mark 5 (Mk5). The Joshua Mk5 will have the toughness and dependability of the AK-47, using various parts and mechanical processes which make the AK-47 that way. The Joshua will ALSO have the accuracy and ergonomics of the AR-15.

Why did Ryan do this? Simply, the AR-15 is a great gun, but it?s fussy. VERY fussy. The Joshua will not be fussy in the least.

Ryan has designed the guts of the Joshua to incorporate the best of both worlds. This is a proprietary and new method of creating a rifle that does what it says it does. There has NEVER been anything like it.

The Joshua Mk5 is also modular and interchangeable. You need to speak with Ryan to get a real feel for what is happening here. All of the questions you now have can be answered by him.

Here's where we are at Amendment Arms Inc:

(1) We have a real shop, not a garage in someone?s house,

(2) We are local manufacturers, in Arden, NC,

(3) We have a Matsuura RA-1 CNC mill,

(4) We have a Hardinge lathe,

(5) We have CNC operator and programmer,

(6) We have an in-house welder-electrician,

(7) We have Tom Wise as general manager,

(8) We have Ryan Croft as hands-on designer,

(9) We are incorporated in the State of North Carolina,

(10) We have investors and investment.

Now, we need you. We know that you are one of us. We know you care about this country. We know you care about American business. We know you care about capitalism. We know you care about the Second Amendment. It's you we need.

We want you to come visit our shop, and see how a gun is made! Where else will you get this opportunity?

We want you to come visit our shop, and talk with Ryan about the Joshua.

We want you to BUY a Joshua. We want you to buy a Joshua before one is ready. We want to offer you incentives to buy a Joshua before a Joshua is ready. And we are ready to make you ready.

We are offering a special deal. The first 200 customers who buy a Joshua Mk5 at the regular price of $895.00 will receive a rebate of $200.00, redeemable over a period of years. That means, if you're quick, you can get this unique and, frankly, AWESOME, firearm for $695.00 (not including taxes and delivery)! You won?t find a better deal anywhere.

And? we offer a LAYAWAY program that allows you get in on the rebate program for as little as $100.00 down!

What's the catch? None! And there are other surprise incentives as well!

Why this special offer? Simply and honestly, we want to get the money in hand now so we can invest further in machining and tooling, because we expect demand to take off. By purchasing a Joshua in advance, you create the circumstances by which we can get to the finish line. It takes money to make money, and we want YOU to be a part of this.

How much time do you have to act? We will be holding this special until we sell 200 Joshua Mk5. Depending on how enthusiastic the response, the offer might end next week or in two months. My advice is to come in now and talk with Ryan and Tom. Once we reach the 200 Joshua goal, the retail price will again be $895.00, which we think is still unmatchable for what you get.

And NOW is a great time to buy for other reasons:

(1) Christmas is coming,

(2) Government regulations are changing, and

(3) You can be among the first to own this game-changer.


Please e-mail back, or call Tom Wise at 828-699-2236, for an appointment to visit.

And don?t miss Ryan Croft appearing on the December 11 episode of ?Doomsday Preppers? on the National Geographic Channel, 9PM EST.

It will be interesting to see how this turns out.... The only problem I have is where he says:

Now, I could be mistaken but the "parts and mechanical processes.." which make an AK-47 so reliable is largely due to the loose tolerances between the innerworkings of the rifle (less likely to be effected by contaminants, distortion of parts, etc...).... And one of the things that makes an AR so accurate are the tight tolerances between the inner workings....Not sure how you can "have the best of both worlds" with those types of characteristics....
Hopefully they can make a good hybrid... It does cause me to raise an eyebrow...

I suspect that's his proprietary secret, let's hope he is right.

Yup. That would be a pretty sweet gun. I enjoy shooting my AK but the AR is by far more accurate.

Just a thought, wouldn't accuracy would depend only upon the barrel/sight relationship for single shots?

I would like to visit their facility but am afraid I might be tempted to to order or invest. I do hope they succeed, I thought they had a move to Colorado Springs planned maybe they will stay here if successful.

I wanted to email direct, but you failed to put your email address in your post. The question I have is how does the Joshua Mk5 differ from the SIG 556. I have extensive experience in weaponry, particularly the AR platform. I never cared for it because of the .556 round, I much prefer the 7.62. For that reason, I have been considering the SIG 716. I already have the SIG 556 Patrol Rifle & am enthralled with it, even if it is a 5.56. If your Joshua is better, how is it better? My email is nanook@rsib.net.

Yep, the AK is a "spray & pray" weapon

Interesting project, but I'm skeptical as to how accurate it will be, for the reasons stated above.

When someone says, "Simply, the AR-15 is a great gun, but it?s fussy. VERY fussy. The Joshua will not be fussy in the least."

It tells me they don't know how to run a ar-15 or they are trying to sell a product, or both.

That price tag is pretty fricken pricey too.

And no, the ak is not "spray and pray" but the accuracy on them does suck.

Not too brag, but as a frame of reference I am a former army ranger, and current police officer and government contractor. I carry M-4's for a living. I own many ar's and ak's.

Buy a ar-15 from a reputable manufacturer, you can't go wrong. Back that up with a 7.62x51 (.308) and you are good to go. Throw in a pistol, some .22's and a shotgun and you can handle 95% of the problems out there if you are competent.

Most owners would say the AR-15 is fine if you keep it clean while some AK-47 owners say they can clean the AK blindfolded with just a brush. I am not fastidious when it comes to maintenance so am interested in the Joshua Mk5 from that aspect. I don't know anything about the Mk5 at this point other than the email, which BTW did post a phone number for questions.

Wow badmuther, you are a legend in your own mind. I've been there & done that, too. & my s-it still stinks.....go back & read my post. I prefer the 7.62 over the 5.56. When I said the ak was a "SPRAY & PRAY" it is because it is so inaccurate at a distance, worse than the AR. Most owners wouldn't know a GREAT rifle if it bit them on the A__ BUT, motre to the point, the SIG 556 already takes the best of both platforms, & it is a great weapon when compared to either...
