Know anything about these?  Any good?  How do they compare to the other stuff out there?

A friend and I used their receivers for Polish underfolder PMKMS builds back in 2005.  At that time they were doing business as Armory USA LLC.  I also bought an assortment of small parts for the build from them.  Everything seemed great except the hammer.  It had to be ground down as it was hitting the bolt carrier to the point of binding.  After that it was great. Double hook.  

They brought in an expert from a Soviet bloc armory and marketed a 1.6 mm receiver.  Sounded great but getting part milled to fit seemed to be a problem.  IIRC they changed names and were later bought out.  Too bad.  They riveted and parkerized those receivers making for quick, easy home builds.  Liked the PMKMS alright but traded it for something I liked better.

Wish they were still around.

They were doing business before K-Var. They made some great guns in the day, as well as bring over Ivan Kolev to design the 1.6 receiver. I have their SSR-85C which was a mint #'s matching Polish milled gun built on a Hungarian SA-85M receiver. In their day, they had everything K-Var does now, but their connection at Arsenal Bulgaria was killed in a car accident. So Arsenal Bulgaria decided to open up shop here, & called it K-Var. GARY

I bought an SSR-85C back in 2003, which was my 1st AK.
These Armory USA rifles (Texas) were very well made mutts.

I had an SSR 85-C2, ISD heavy receiver with initial work done by Armory USA. Further work was done at Krebs Custom.

Sweet gun, would not hesitate to pick up another ISD/Armory USA rifle.
