September 29, 2011 Gio & Valerie, I just finished my build-up of my AMD65 (The "Blast-O-Matic") and couldn't be happier with your products. I used your "Monster Pack" of accessories, in addition to a de-milled kit from Solar Tactical, an AMD Builder flat and rivets, a Hogue grip, a UTG rail and a Colt M7 Bayonet. Your stock adapter is revolutionary, your 4-hole muzzle brake is fierce and surprisingly light, your sling adapter is quite useful, and your bayonet lug was the envy of all the other AK builders at the build party! Thanks for making my AMD-65 "So Very Cool"! The kydex grip wrap in the photo (from solar tactical) is required in CA in order to obtain a "Featureless Build" (along with pinning the stock open); This allows me to use my pre-ban/legacy hi-cap magazines, rather than using a bullet button and 10rd mags (California statism at it's finest!)
Thank you again for the time and attention that you gave to installing the riser on my AK as well as for the other actions that you took to improve the function of the rifle.
Finding a true craftsman who takes pride in his work is rare these days and you fit my definition of that type craftsman.
Because good people like you who have a quality product for sale should be recognized, I have posted information about your product on the following AK-related websites. If you want to pick one and read the post, please do. Each site has the same post. Hopefully, the post will generate some additional business for you. -DON
"I recently received and installed one of your full replacement stocks. I just wanted to say thank you for the top notch product and service. Kudos to you and your husband."
"Received the order today - Beautiful work! my great uncles would have given you an A+ on the muzzle brake welding work. My great uncles were WWII machinists - worked at the Ford City Plant (by the Midway Airport, Chicago) building 1/2 tracks for the war, then for Tucker, and finally the three of them opened a machine shop by the airport. When I get in to my builds a few months from now, I hope I can bounce a few questions off of you. Thank you again." SM
"You and Gio have and excellent reputation community-wide; I love my AMD-65 (of all my AK/AR variants, it's my favorite) and I'm sure I will be ordering more stuff from y'all in the future."
"Gio and Valerie... WONDERFUL Customer Service. Great parts, superb craftsmanship and they fit really good, and they made the gun easier to shoot and the sling swivel works great... Thank you for all your help." HR, St. Louis, MO
“Gio's a great guy. Make sure you pick up one of his sling adapter rings as well.” - F1fanatic
“I'm thinking about ordering one, and I don't even have an AMD 65 yet! It just seems like a must have item to me.” – grimhollow
“Ordered mine on Monday got it yesterday. Installed it last night, and its rock solid, I'm very happy with it. Excellent mod for this gun.” - Number1wabullet
“I ordered a riser for my AMD 65. It is rock solid, period. Plus, the fellow who designed the riser certainly knows his AKs. He has helped me out with a couple jams already, no charge. All I did was email him my problem and he called me at home, walked me through the problem. Yes, I am a new to the AK's. I decided to get one for the heck of it. Good guy, good stuff, great advice/help. I will be doing business with him in the future.” - Auxilia
“It’s super easy to install.” – Auxilia
“It works great. You get your sight picture so much faster. Its a night and day difference.” – dfwgun
"I just wanted to let you know how much I like the cheek riser I got from you for my Romanian WASR. The installation was easy, thanks to the detailed instructions, and was completed in about twenty minutes. The stock has much more utility now than it did before, it actually feels more like a stock than a stick! Eye-alignment with iron sights is spot on for me, and the rifle looks much better now. Thank you for making such a fine product, and I will keep checking the website for new products that may appear." - Jeff Hancock
"... I just wanted to get out my reply as fast as I could, but I wanted to thank you guys very much for some great products and I appreciate the extra help from Mr. Gio welding it. I appreciate it." MM
