Spectacular!

Whoa. As a long time NDS customer, I'm not sure how I feel about this. I hope this means that their products will be more available with more production capacity and shorter wait times. However, being a part of a large corp, I hope products don't get discontinued if sales don't match the market projections (i.e. brownells). On the bright side, hopefully this means these parts will continue to be produced if/when Mike and Harlan retire

Also, I didnt need an H&R A1 clone in my life...until now

My humble suggestion is that the first major investment of this wonderful new venture should be the tooling and equipment for roll marking lowers!

AWESOME!! There's a bunch of ways this can go and really only a couple of them would be "bad"...the vast majority of outcomes this could have would be great for all of us!

This is extremely exciting for me and I have big plans for H&R, and not just in the retro AR15 market.

The biggest thing I ask is to have patience, as there will be a transition and learning curve for my new crew.

I’ve never met you and have only bought a small item or two from you. I have however seen your interactions on here for years and believe the reputation you have is well earned. If you are at the helm I have hope that we will continue to see good things.

Is there plans to revive the Handi Rifle or is it too early to ask?

This is great news. PSA is becoming a juggernaut of the gun world for sure.

Looking forward to picking up an H&R A1 lower and upper.

I have only bought a few parts from NoDak Spud over the years, but I was always impressed that Harlan himself would handle the email correspondences with me.

Hopefully most of the skilled work force will accompany the move.

Welcome to SC. BTW, Charleston > Columbia. Just saying.

But seriously, that is pretty awesome. I wish you guys great success. Did my NoDak lowers just become collector's items?

Will the BRN180 lowers still be available?

I was planning my next build.

Congrats - I hope to see and buy some cool H&R things

My first 22LR rifle was an H&R oddly enough.

Good luck and congratulations Mike. You and Harlan have done more for the retro AR15 than anyone else over the past 15 years. I will always cherish my Nodak lowers, I think they make up over 50% of my AR collection.

Looking forward to see what else you're able to bring to life!
Link Posted: 12/16/2021 11:17:25 PM EDT

So is there still going to be 80% stuff or is this the end of that?

Wow and I promised my better half I was finished building rifles. I don't have a H&R of course so maybe just one more....

Please keep your high standards of quality and attention to detail. I'm going to miss your minimalist markings on the NDS lowers.

The guys over at INT. MILSPEC TRADING CO. have been making H&R roll marked lowers for quite some time now. Just throwing it out there for those of us who are impatient like myself lol. But seriously best of luck to all the parties involved in this I have had owned 4 sets of NDS receivers and I know the quality they will bring to H&R.

I was afraid of that. Was waiting on a partial fence so I could make the brother of this one.

You might have to order an authentic H&R lower from H&R, & transfer it through a local dealer @ a gunshow, harumph, harumph.
