Just wondering if anyone has built any type of weapon off a Joeken lower?

Their site seems kinda plain, and not many other products, however they do sell a billet reciever...

Any thoughts or experience with these guys?

Thanks for the help guys....

Do a google search and you will find a lot of feedback on them. I ordered from them once and let's just say I should have read about other people's experiences before finding out the hard way.

Roger that... on google now.


I saw a few postings about it..... but I figured the combined knowledge of this board would out weight seemingly random posts.


Thanks for the info, and the account or your build...

One thing to add... I am talking about the Billet lowers...

I can't seem to find ANYTHING on google with regards to the Billet stuff.

However from what I gather he may be a shady guy given the content up on the "House of the 51" website. (Forgive me if this is a previously covered topic) I cannot search back more than 30 days of course...

No one has any info about their Billet lowers? Or am I still running? I have ordered a stag-15, however I really would like to know if anyone has tried one...

Avoid at all cost especially anythin Vulcan.

Vulcan=Hesse=Shit. Build quality is consistently bad customer service is worse, wait till someone post a pic of thier shop. JoeKen is a pawnshop a 3rd rate one at that. If they have no afilliation other than selling the product it could be safe but you can still expect some kind of problems.

Be lucky if you ever get what you order from what I have read.
No personal experience though, and don't intend to.

They were at the Small Arms Review Show here in Phoenix a few weeks ago selling their crap. They had a lot of buyers lined up filling out 4473 forms for AK's that looked as if they dragged them to the show behind their cars. billt.

Thanks guys....

I really do appreciate the input....

I need to get myself a membership here so I can search the archives.... I would have kicked myself if I had purchased this before I got back the reviews.
