All this is moot at this point, as the shop no longer exists, the phone has been shut off, and the owner/manager, William (Bill) Vasden Jr. has been convicted of 30 counts of wire fraud by pleading guilty. He bilked $3M from investors. He also stole a good deal of money by selling custom gun listings on, collecting payments, and then never delivering the product. He is currently serving 4 years in a Federal prison in Georgia. His sentence began in January of 2015. He got me for $1280.00, and I have yet to see the AK. He even made a phone call to me before beginning his sentence, stating that he would get my order out. But what he forgot to mention was that he'd be sending it psychically in an orange corrections jumpsuit. I already knew that his class 7 FFL would have, and had been pulled. So he would not have been able to legally list a new serial number and send it to MO. His father (Bill Vasden Sr.) actually called in January to assure me that he would complete the order, though he did not possess a class 7 FFL either. It's now October '15, and crickets. It seems like lies, deception, and crooked are fruits from that same tree. Just rotten fruit if you ask me-and all the others that got scammed. Good luck Bill and Bill. I hope the vacations, the house, the boat, the vacation house, and of course the Cadillac were all worth your reputation and felony convictions. Sincerely-Marshall in Saint Louis, MO



SCAM!! I sent them a personal check over 1 year ago. I have still NOT received my product. Now I am in an email battle with the owner, Bill Vasden, to recoop my payment. I will be filing a lawsuit against them by next week if they do not refund what I have paid them by this week. I will keep this updated on the process.


I was also ripped off by this ...

The quality is top notch. I would have given 5 stars but the 9 month wait really got under my skin. If you want quality and are ok waiting months upon months, I would recommend them based in quality alone.



Hi everyone. Read this.

This site and shop is a SCAM.

They have auction listings where they try to get people like you and I to fall for sending them money. They will only accept Cashiers checks or Money orders. I sent them $1215 for an AK47 on March 21st. they cashed it the next week. I verified this when I reported them to the FBI. They have an account they use just for these shady transactions. It is now July 2nd and they have been stringing me along about supposed parts conflicts and this and that. To finally send me FALSE shipping information about a package that is supposed to have a rifle in it. No such package has ever been sent. Check out some research I did, look up the OWNER his name is William(Bill) Vasden. He is out on 500k bail for ripping off the resident farmers and Canadian investors for MILLIONS a few years ago. They were aggregating funds and got caught up with illegal WIRE FRAUD. They are doing the same thing to us as we try to send money in and be patient for a "custom AK" while they pool up a whole lot of money and invest and scam and do whatever until someone like me takes the time to file all of the reports. Try calling the shop, they are all of low intelligence and they just kinda do not know what the heck they are talking about. I am a collector and their scam got past me. BE CAREFUL.
