i have been working with a former team mate from Iraq who started a weapons manufacturing business roughly a year ago. We are currently building AR10 and 15 based platforms, working on some bolt gun stuff, some pistol stuff, and now launching our shotgun line. I cleared this with the management and am trying to get the word out. Im gonna be on the road today and tomorrow and will answer any questions as soon as im able. Thank you much for looking, its greatly appreciated. Copied from our facebook launch post. Our website is www.archer-mfg.com adn the faceblaster page is https://www.facebook.com/ArcherMfg
"When we started Archer Mfg, we stated from the beginning we wanted to do much more than just build quality firearms... we wanted to make sure we gave back every chance we got. With that in mind, we're incredibly excited to launch the first of the Archer Mfg Extreme Duty Shotgun line: the Kanon 12ga.
Named after his Explosive Detection Dog (EDD) K9, the Kanon 12ga shotgun is a tribute to one of our teammates who was tragically killed in Afghanistan on December 26th, 2013. Veteran SWAT officer turned security contractor, the only job Lee loved more than law enforcement was that of "Daddy". His daughter meant everything to him and, in his memory, a portion of the proceeds of each Kanon 12ga will be contributed to a trust established for her college education.
The Kanon 12ga starts with a Remington Model 870 Police Magnum pump action shotgun featuring an 18” barrel, Improved Cylinder choke, and 2 round magazine extension. Following an inspection and function check, the Archer Shotgun Action Enhancement Package is then applied. The receiver, loading port and ejection port are dehorned and polished. The barrel is backbored, forcing cone lengthened, and bore and chamber are polished to a mirror finish for enhanced feeding and extraction while producing tighter shot patterns and reducing recoil.
The magazine tube exterior and receiver interior are coated with Micro-Slick while the mag tube interior is polished to a mirror finish for smoother function. We install the Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor, SBE Aluminum Tactical follower and Big Speed safety to increase reliability. The XS Ghost Ring rear sight, XS banded Tritium front sight, MagPul SGA forward sling mount and Micro Flush rotation-limited rear QD mount are then installed. Finally, the barrel and receiver are coated in the Cerakote color of your choice for a long lasting and durable finish and delivered in a Patriot Case.
The Kanon 12ga starts at $1495 and is available with several buttstock, fore-end and accessory options. Our website's currently being updated with more pics and details, and in the mean time spec sheets and order forms are available by contacting Sales@Archer-Mfg.com. Thanks for your support, and in helping us care for the family of a fallen brother.
