Arizona Law Enforcement Official Tests Smith Enterprise Flash Hider & Sound Suppressor

An Arizona Law Enforcement Official who we cannot name conducted a night fire test last Friday. This is what he had to say:

"The first image is an AK Krink SBR chambered in 5.56 mm. The second image is a standard Romanian Guard's AK chambered in 7.62 x39 with a Smith sound Suppressor. (100% reliable and very quiet.) The third image is the same AK with a Smith Enterprise Vortex Flash Hider. The vortex remains the best flash suppressor I have ever tested. I have tested the Vortex on M1As, AR15, AR10 and now the AK 47."

Ron Smith Response to Bump Stock Ban Email

I wrote an email yesterday about the Bump Stock Ban and the Las Vegas shooting.

I don't know how this offended anyone, we do believe this was a tragedy, as all the shootings are a tragedy.

But some people had some issues when we mentioned that it was a good thing the nutjob in Las Vegas wasn't using our Vortex Flash Hider.

We were not joking about that. We can't understand why a small few would be offended by something like this.

If people are going to get bothered about something start getting bothered about the 91 people a day who die from opioid overdoses and the 64,000 who died last year from that.

Or the 22 veterans who are committing suicide every day because they can't get the care or support they need. Or the fact that our do-nothing Congress wants to push a bump-stock ban at a time when we are trillions of dollars in debt, we are being flooded with illegals and MS-13 gangs, and nobody can afford health care.

If some are going to get their panties bunched up, at least focus on the right things.

And whether people like it or not, the Smith Enterprise Flash Hider is the best flash hider known to man. We are not ashamed by this FACT.

Shoot 'em in the face,

P.S. Thanks to all who have stood by us over the years, I always remember those who stay with us.

World Class Chinese M14 Products

Just wanted to send you a quick update on some things we have been working on.

I am getting old and I don't know how much longer I can do this. These ideas and products of mine will be available as long as I still have a fight in me.

Chinese M14 Vortex

People love their Chinese M14s made by Norinco or Polytech. We now make a direct connect Vortex for Model 305 M14. This product is not on our website yet, so you will have to call the shop if you want one at (480) 964-1818.

Chinese M14 Gas Lock

For the Polytech 305 we have the Dovetail gas lock front sight and the hooded front sight. The Part Number is 2011-305 for the 22 inch barrel. The Part Number is 2000-M305 for the Direct Connect. The hooded gas lock Part Number is 2012-305. These can be adjusted for 18-22 inch barrel. Call the shop if you need one (480) 964-1818 as these aren't on the website yet.

Chinese M14 Trigger Jobs

We do trigger jobs on the Chinese M14s as well. We upgrade the hammer springs and the pins. We also reparkerize. The pull is 4-4.5 lbs. and optimized for accuracy.

For Canadian buyers, you can go through Brad Mills at Nortic Marksman.  He will square you away.

All of our stuff is Made in the USA and what better way to upgrade your Chinese M14 than to put something American on it?

Get some,
Ron Smith
