He's a new builder in Amory, MS. I think someone that knows much more about AR's than I do, should contact this guy and do a little Q&A and see if they're worth looking into. I know many of us like to buy things local, and if this guy is legit, it could be a great boon to a local business. He also does some things like MP5 clones or something. He runs his little business out of his home, and seems like he does most of his contacts through facebook. Here's a link to his page. http://www.facebook.com/BlackScorpionArms He DOES claim to be a FFL manufacturer. I don't know much about it, just thought I'd put the word out that there is a new maker in town. I believe that basically what he does is "assemble" instead of actually "manufacture". Post what you find out about it, let the rest of us know. I don't know the right questions to ask.
