Do you manufacture receivers?
Yes, Savannah River Armory, Inc. is a class VII manufacturer. We currently offer our own billet AR15 lowers and uppers, forged AR15 lowers and uppers, barrels, gas blocks, and rail systems. Manufacturing is not done in house, so our inventory is sometimes limited depending on teh rate at which we can produce said products.
Can you order_______?
Yes, if you can name it we can get it. Some points throughout the year typically present problems with shipping speeds from our distributors. For example January and February, our distributors are usually either prepping or recuperating for/from SHOT show, therefore our inventory may be lacking ordered shipments.
Can you thread barrels, or perform in-house machining?
Negative. Currently we out source any machining to a local machine/fabricator.
Do you offer gunsmithing classes?
No can do. Due to liability issues and various other reasons, we do not offer gunsmithing classes, nor internships. We do not have a gunsmith on staff either, we have a certified armorer. Food for though.... If you we a business owner who provided armorer services, would you create more competition for yourself?
How much does a custom coating job cost?
At the moment, we cannot quote pricing over the internet, or over the phone. One thing that we have learned thus far is that it is always in both parties best interest for the firearm to be physically present in shop for the most accurate quoting. We do have an on-staff coating specialist, but in order to provide you with the best possible coating job, we need to see the firearm. We are however actively seeking ways to improve our price quoting abilities.
Why do your products cost more than what Jim Bob is selling them for down the road?
Our manufactured rifles do not only posses the latest that the gun industry has to offer, but each and every single firearm that is put on display or that is shipped undergoes a very rigorous quality control test. Each and every firearm is personally fired by and tested by both the CEO and the Armorer to ensure it will perform under the most austere conditions. No less that 30 rounds are put downrange through each firearm. On top of that, every model firearm we manufacture is built to order. What this means is while Jim Bob is falling asleep from a nasty hangover on an assembly line somewhere, we ensure top quality is met with each firearm. Also, depending on the model AR, we use billet uppers and lowers, which requires more money spent on raw materials and engineering equipment.
