Update for May 21, 2013

Hello, everybody!  We apologize for the delay in updates lately.


We are still in the pre-production mode due to barrels and quad rails being on back order. 

We did today receive notice that quad rail samples will be delivered in mid-June.  From there, we further machine, finish, and finally go into production mode. 

Barrels are a bit delayed by Lothar Walther.  We were informed that there was some snafu in the way they placed our order.  We don’t like it, but we have to wait two further weeks for samples to arrive. 

Preliminary test of the Joshua firing mechanism is good.  Centering and ejection is nice and consistent.  With a proper barrel, firing should follow as consistently.


I wish I had better news, but we are obviously delayed in delivery.  This has of course stacked up back orders, about 150-160 fully-paid so far.

Per the contract, we have refunded a few fully-paid who waited the requisite three months before requesting.  Everything was done amicably.


We can’t patent until we are done testing.


The receiver, its construction and parts, bolt modifications, and quad rail design are new and proprietary.  We therefore can’t show anything pertinent until we patent. 

We realize this is inconvenient, and we apologize for any anxiety it causes.


We now have options for providing magazines, including extras.  Several of you have already taken advantage of this.


We appreciate your patience during our slow but steady progress.

Thank you for being an Amendment Arms customer!

General Manager
