Happy New Year

We are going to have the best year we have had in a long time in this country. Manufacturing is coming back.

Also in the beginning of the year we will be at the Shot Show in Las Vegas on the 23rd and 24th of January. I hope you can meet up with me there.

I will also be meeting with Colt, Sig Sauer, Rock River Arms, FNH, and the United States Military to show them our new products.

With our new barrel technology, our flash hider technology, and our sound suppressor technology, we have a lot to talk to our customers about.

Anyway - Happy New Years, may 2018 be good for everybody.

Semper Fi,

Ron Smith

New exclusive M14 Barrel

I have some breaking M14 product news.

We have partnered with Hart Barrels to bring a new medium weight 416 stainless barrel to the M14. It is available in the .260 Remington version and the .308 version. All barrels are made to Smith Enterprise's proprietary specifications.

Our .308 barrel is our new 1 turn in 10 with 5 groove left hand twist exclusively for Smith Enterprise from Hart Barrels. The barrels will be marked "SMITH&HART".

We are the only ones with a .260 Remington version out there.

Call (480) 964-1818 for pricing or email here if you want one.

Hart Barrels are extremely well-made, hand lapped after they are rifled and stress relieved. They are stress relieved 3 times in the process of manufacture.

We are shooting half inch groups at 100 yards or less using a Sage International stock and scope. That is unheard of for a gas gun to do that consistently all the time. Go here to see our video of us test-firing the .260 Remington version.

We are going to offer them salt bath nitrided to my specification or just in the dull shark-skin gray stainless color.

Again call the shop 480-964-1818 or email me here and we will get you taken care of.

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."

This is the same AK with a Smith Vortex Flash Hider:

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

Smith Enterprise Announcements

Colt Defense buys Smith Enterprise’s Vortex for the M-4

Colt Defense bought x150 of our Part Number 1001V-A2 Vortex for the M-4 Carbine in June 0f 2017. We have been working with Colt Defense for many years, and this is the 3rd or 4th order like this over the years.

Colt Canada buys Blank Firing Adapters for the C8 Rifle

Colt Canada ordered x100 of our Part Number 1015 Blank Firing Adapter (BFA), which is the BFA that works with the 10.5 inch barreled M-16s. This is an ongoing order with Colt Canada who have ordered over x1,000 of these parts off and on in the past 4 years. When they tested our Blank Firing Adapter, it stopped an 855 green tip round dead in its tracks thus ensuring the safety of those in front of the rifle just in case someone loads live ammunition. The test destroyed the BFA, but the round did not go down range.

CANSOFCOM buys Vortex Flash Hider for the M240 Machine Gun

In July, CANSOFCOM ordered x40 of our M240 Vortex Flash hiders, Part Number 1001-AV-A3. These flash hiders are the sound suppressor capable kind. CANSOFCOM has purchased an overall x700 of these items over the past 4 years.

Smith and Wesson ordered x650 Vortex Flash Hiders for the MP15, Part Number 1001-G6A2-PH. The “PH” is for the pinhole version so they can permanently install these Vortex Flash Hiders on the MP15. This is an ongoing contract of over 2,000 ordered in the past 4 years.

Smith Enterprise Vortex Passes HK Test

HK tested the Vortex Flash Hider, Part Number 1001-G6A4, and posted the video on their Facebook page. It passed with flying colors. Tested against 3 other flash hider makers.

Vortex Going on the Chris Kyle Gun

Cobalt Kinetics bought x255 of the newest Vortex Flash Hider, Part Number 1001V G6A4 with the patented Arc Helix. This order was for their newest rifle, the Chris Kyle gun. Tana Kyle, Chris Kyle’s wife, approved the rifle and you can see a picture of Ron with her from the SHOT Show.
