    Safir Arms is setting up a manufacturing facility in Willingboro NJ. Building has been leased and infrastructure is in place. Waiting for ATF FFL. Inspection of premises has been carried out satisfactorily by ATF, FFL should be forthcoming. We shall market the gun for Safirarms as their sales agent in USA. we hope to be able to offer the gun and its accessories for sale by Jan-Feb 2011. T-14 will be imported from Turkey initially till manufacturing begins.
    In US, Safir will be manufacturing T 15 ( .223 cal. Semi auto model) and T 22 ( .22 rimfire model) in addition to T 14 and its uppers. 5.56 (.223) caliber AR 15 magazines of 10 and 20 rounds.

    We are taking projected requirements from the dealers at this time for T-14, Uppers and Magazines for delivery in March 2011. Safir Arms can be followed on Tweeter at Safirarms for latest updates or send us an e mail.

    I am surprised they are going to manufacture the T-15, a standard AR-15.
