Sons of Liberty Gun Works is better known in the firearms community as SOLGW, for short. Since establishing operations in San Antonio, Texas in 2014, they have quickly grown to become a highly sought-after and well-regarded source of AR-15 components and complete firearms. Bearing the self-assigned descriptor, “A superior manufacture of high quality, hard-use, direct impingement freedom tools,” SOLGW offers a wide range of ARs. You can opt for a basic “Legacy” M4-style 16″ version at a $949 MSRP, to a Sage Dynamics 12.5″ special edition for $1400, to an upgraded “Super Loaded Pro Rifle Package” for $2549 that even includes an optic and weaponlight – and many more models.
An integral component of SOLGW’s branding, beyond the obvious tributary references to America’s rebellious founding, is owner Mike Mihalski. Mike is the brand’s ubiquitous leader, spokesman, customer service liaison, internet troll confronter, marketing ambassador, and much more. He’s known for commenting and replying on a monumental number of social media pages, posts, and groups involving or referencing his company, and many that only concern the firearms industry or AR-15s in general. There is something of a running joke on the Gunternet that if you post a question anywhere about SOLGW, even without any tags or notifications, Mike will somehow pop up out of nowhere to personally respond. He is also quick to address any customer concerns or issues, and has repeatedly offered people his direct personal support – sometimes including his personal cell phone number – rather than simply referring them to an impersonal automated line or e-form, as many other companies tend to do. This bold, perhaps somewhat outlandish, and occasionally even brazen personality serves to enhance the atmosphere around the brand that is borne out of the good reputation of the guns themselves. With this, many firearms enthusiasts will be glad to learn that it will soon become easier to access SOLGW products. With the following press release, they’ve announced a new distribution partnership that is meant to bring the complete product line to retailers in every part of the nation. The release reads:
