you for your interest in our products such as the .458 SOCOM and
.338 Spectre. Due to having accepted a new assignment that requires
us to move overseas for an extended period of time, we are not
taking any new orders as of 2011 and are working to complete all
have formed a strategic alliance with Southern Ballistic Research (SBR)
and they will be continuing our product line under our name during
our absence. They will be producing the same great uppers and
components, using the same top shelf components and workmanship, but
should be able to produce more due to a dedicated facility and
staff. We anticipate that they will be able to take orders starting
the summer of 2011, if not sooner. Their website can be found here
River Arms is also producing 16” .458 SOCOM uppers in a
configuration similar to our “basic model” as well as some other
versions and they are fully licensed and supported by us. Their
wait time tends to be less and some of their dealers may even have
uppers in stock. We are also telling folks to check the “for sale”
areas on AR15.com, Gunbroker as well as our own forum for uppers
that come up for sale from time to time.
realize this may be a disappointing news, but some opportunities
cannot be refused and we are confident that SBR will be able to meet
all your needs and expectations.
and the Teppo Crew
To place an order for the upper
of your choice, the best route is to send us an Email. There are a few simple steps that will make the
process go smoothly. We typically use DPMS parts, but we can
build the upper using just about any AR-15 component that you can
think of. Also, we will use customer supplied parts as long
as they are in safe operating condition and do not pose a hazard
to the shooter or bystanders.
Use the list below to gather your thoughts before contacting
us, it will help to get your information in for a preliminary quote.
THE MONEY QUESTIONS
typically require a deposit to cover the larger items, unless we are dealing with highly unusual requests.

and have confirmed this with you.

Refunds will be made only for items defective in workmanship. If you have a problem with your upper,

The customer is responsible for determining the legality of owning an AR-15 style rifle in their locale,
as well as the legality of any particular configuration. We make rifles that are fun to shoot, different,
but do not guarantee them to do anything but perhaps amuse you. What you use it for is your
responsibility. We won't accept any liability, implied or inferred or other. Sorry, the lawyers made us say it ....
