Straight from Joe at Joeken

"One thing that not everyone is aware of is that UZI pistols, AK pistols, and other assault style foreign made pistols were ban from importation. Any firearms that are made up with foreign made parts in pistol configuration would be illegal for sale or manufacture in the US. By using US made parts, you are able to avoid problems with this. We are the only company that is offering AK pistols and AR pistols to the general public.
The AK pistol is now on our website and will start shipping next week on a first come first served basis.

Pistols can be build with import parts (its the receiver that must be MFG in the USA)
Pistols are not restricted by the 922(r) compliance rules only rifles.

No, they still sold imported "assault pistols" after the '89 import ban, and before the '94 ban.

Bushmaster and Olympic arms both offer AR-15 pistols and have for some time.

Joeken is a bunch of stupid idiots who will probably end up in jail for conning people out of their money.

#1 It applies to semi-auto RIFLES and SHOTGUNS only.

#2 Joeken won't let me correct them as I am - BANNED.


Chapter 44 Title 18 Subsection 922

(r) It shall be unlawful for any person to assemble from imported parts any semiautomatic rifle or any shotgun which is identical to any rifle or shotgun prohibited from importation under section 925 (d)(3) of this chapter as not being particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to sporting purposes except that this subsection shall not apply to—
(1) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for sale or distribution by a licensed manufacturer to the United States or any department or agency thereof or to any State or any department, agency, or political subdivision thereof; or
(2) the assembly of any such rifle or shotgun for the purposes of testing or experimentation authorized by the Attorney General.

The company aside, what do you guys think about the pistol itself?

They say it is on one of THEIR new receivers, has anyone heard anything about them?

The gas tube looks like one from the AMD-65, which owners of short-tubed SA-85M's have a covered tube for...no need for the extra $50 charge :)

Need imput...
