Rifle Dynamics owner Jim Fuller took to Facebook to announce that he was approached by a ‘group of long time friends’ to sell the company and that he has accepted the offer. Fuller has not yet disclosed the buyers nor the sale price and only offers that more information will be available soon.
Arguably the king of custom-built AK patterned rifles, Fuller states that the company he originally started to fund retirement life grew to be more popular than he ever imagined. He also said that under the new ownership, his hope is that by the end of the year, customers will be able to walk into a gun shop, actually hold, buy and carry out a Rifle Dynamics gun on the very same day. Currently, custom build are taking up to a year to complete.
Fuller makes it clear that he isn’t going anywhere and looks forward to building more guns rather than dealing with the business side of the house.
Rumors abound about the new ownership, but until we get verifiable information here at TFB, I’ll leave the speculation to other sources.
