I'd wager that many people who post in our AR section have equally reliable or more reliable AR's than what Red Jacket builds but our guys don't go around claiming they just invented the wheel.
Leads me to wonder how many smiths are down there that were willing to take an order like that...don't forget a lot of gunsmiths would hear the words "build me one...big enough to...and make it custom" and just tell you to bugger off or recommend someone who actually has the necessary equipment. Yeah they may play it off on the show as being innovative, but then, what exactly IS innovative when you ask for an AR that'll simply and somewhat quietly drop a 200lb beast, and do it quickly?
