    AK47 made in Texas

    A couple of years ago there was a company that was selling AK47 clones. They were out of Houston. Does any one know the name of this company and if they are still in business ?

    Re: AK47 made in Texas

    Are you referring to "Jakashh Industries" out of Sugarland????

    2nd AK Built, first one (Helga the Horrible) disassembled.

    They build an outstandingly authentic looking gun, dubious repetition for reliability though. I would love to have one if they get into full scale production.

    There was another company named Arsenal in Houston that made AKM rifles. They are not the same as the Vegas arsenal. Interarms also operates out of Houston, TX.

    Yes, yes. They were great builders, unfortunately their barrel suppliers made an inferior product that caused the gun to not function. I've heard that they might start up business again soon with saigas or full parts builds, but with reputable barrel manufacturers when their owner gets the money

    One day :lol:

    Armory USA makes AKs out of Houston.

    EDIT: At least they used to. I can't seem to find a website for them. Their old website is shut down.

    EDIT 2: Their phone rings to an answering machine for Hi Standard Manufacturing. You might try calling them during business hours tomorrow: (713) 944-3351

    Armory USA sounds like it. Many thanks for the fast response. I will research the others to. Thanks again.

    Originally the company was named "Arsenal USA", but apparently that caused some sort of trademark blowup with Arsenal Bulgaria. Ron, one of the owners, told me that. They also had a parts import company named "Global Trades". I can remember buying East German bakelite AK-74 mags off their gunshow table for $3 each in 2004.

    I talked to the guy who ran one of those Houston companies last weekend at the gun show. His health went south and he just shut it down.
