Relisting this for sale after I had it for trade only.
This rare, limited Noveske Project Ares gen2 was built in 2011 while John was alive and has an extremely low serial, making it one of the first gen2 rifles he built. It has seen roughly 350 rounds and is in very good condition. I have another so this one served as a backup. There are a few minor handling marks on the lower. I’m not sure how many were made but there weren’t a lot. I have some other KAC accessories that I will add as well.
This weapons system was built around the gen2 Noveske flared, forged lower, a Noveske-marked Vltor MUR upper receiver and a Knight’s Armament URXII rifle-length handguard with integrated front site. It is the only factory-assembled Noveske rifle ever assembled and offered with a Knight’s rail system.
