Announcement Update 1/16/20

Update and shipping news

 

Dear Valued Customers,

We know there are a lot of frustrated customers out there, upset with our lack of communication. We understand they have good reason to be frustrated. We apologize for this total lack of communication. We wish there was some way we could undo what we have done.

This email is an attempt to explain why.

Over the past several years, we have experienced a series of unfortunate events. We’ll briefly cover them in order.

Going back to the last couple of years of the Obama Administration with all of the talk of gun bans, basically a “feeding frenzy” so to speak of AR platform purchases was created, deeply cutting into our normal sales numbers.

As the country got closer to the 2016 presidential elections and the belief was created that Hillary Clinton would win the election, AR platform sales reached levels never seen before, cutting into our sales even more.

After the election of Mr. Trump (one of the most pro-gun presidents we have ever had) as president, our sales took another dip, as the threat of bans completely disappeared.

The last quarter of 2017 the complex where we rented our shop space was sold and January, 2018 our rent was doubled. We had to move out as we just couldn’t afford the increase in rent.

We ended up setting up a very nice, but small work space behind our house where we have been doing all the work of building out kits and shipping since July of 2018.

During all of the above, we had managed to continue slowly shipping out kits and small parts orders with basically a one man crew while working small electrical jobs to supplement household income until we could lower our overhead to the point where the decisions and actions of others have no effect on our business going forward.

Unfortunately, at the end of August 2018, two State of California public entities, breached obligations not arising from contract that we had with them to purchase the home we have been living in for almost 20 years, injuring us greatly. We were in no position to afford an attorney, not to mention the fact, the handful of attorneys we did call informed us they had no interest in taking on a lawsuit against the State.

What was done to us was so egregious and outrageous, we just could not let it lie. So after much reading and research, we filed a suit against the State ourselves. What I have come to learn regarding how the status quo of government is steadily, methodically, stripping us of our wealth, freedoms and liberties, boggles my mind. It’s almost like waking up in an episode of the matrix. We have been raised to believe there is nothing we can do, but actually there is. But that’s another story for another time.

Learning all that we had to learn was a daunting task for us. Every step of the judicial process was a whole new set of information we had to learn.

We were scheduled to have a hearing on January 17th where it would be decided if our case is dismissed or if it is to move forward to trial. However, yesterday, the court moved the hearing to the same day as our Case Management Conference, which is the 24th of January. We are hoping this portends to good things.

We feel we have reached a point where we can begin putting a fair amount of time back into building out kits and shipping as well as keeping our website up to date. By January 25th we should be shipped through April 2019. Also at this time, we should be able to begin setting tentative dates of future shipments.

We are going to begin calling those who have been trying to reach us to no avail. It will take a little while because we only have a limited time to make calls. Ideally, the best way to communicate with us will be through email. We basically work from sun up to well past sundown. At the end of the day, it’s much easier to sit down in the quiet of the evening and respond to emails.

Again, we apologize for the total lack of communication. We were in such a desperate situation it was difficult to even think. All of the time spent to get our case up to this point really divided our attention.

We are now at a place where we can begin anew focusing on Shernic Gun Works. We have and do really appreciate your patience and we know you’re going to be thrilled with your purchase.

Shipping Update (Active Updates) 8/14/18

August 14th, 2018

We are shipping out our back orders as quickly as we can.  To date we have shipped out orders placed on 3/30 through 4/23. We expect to have shipped orders placed through 5/17 by the end of this week.

We will keep our shipping progress up to date on our website for your convenience.

Your patience has been sincerely appreciated.

Shipping Update 6/24/18

June 24th, 2018

As many of you know, we have been having a real issue getting our replacement Pistol Grips. The good news is the issue was finally resolved this past weekend and we were assured Tuesday morning that the tool could be run as early as July 2nd, but no later than the 9th of July. This means we could be shipping as early as the 3rd of July. We have been building out the rest of the kit components, so once shipping commences again, filling the back orders should not take long at all.

On another note, we have received the back ordered rails. They will all be shipped out as quickly as we can possibly do it.

We have appreciated your extreme patience, and again we apologize for all of this confusion regarding shipping.

Modified Archangel for SGW’s Forward Moving Lug

Arc angel LVX AALVX35

As a Sks owner i thought about upgrading my gun into a more modern looking gun and that’s when i found SGW bullpup system and can say i’m loving it, so when the FML was announced I bought one right away. I was excited, finally decent mags instead of that duck bill thing. Yes it sucked cause i had to wait almost a year to get it, but Dang it, it was finally shipped out. Boy did i get a shock….  Like more consumers we wanted it fast and easy and when i opened the package i found out i was going to have to do a little gunsmithing. What do i know about gunsmithing? Well ill tell you, idiot and stupid had a kid and i was it, I had no idea what to do and even when i stopped and read the info and than finally found the youtube videos, i was still freaked out. What do freaked out people do?

They make mistakes, and boy did i. To start out i put off time on doing anything to buy mags, did i check what type?  NOPE…… So since it was a ak47 type conversion i bought ak style mags. Once i got those i didnt have an excuse and got right into the build. Following the Youtube video step by step was easy and it much easier than i thought, boy was it a pretty sight, not only was it my first time doing any real gunsmithing but it was perfect.

But now for the mag……

I put my first mag in and its didnt work, nothing connected, the mag wouldn’t stay in, crud there was a freakin 1/2 inch with nothing there holding it. So i looked on the site again and something caught my eye about mag modification. I thought No Way, this has got to be a joke. I bought an ak mod to shoot ak style. Always remember to do your homework on what your buying. I needed to make sure i wasn’t looking at thing wrong, so i sent in an email and also made a call to be on the safe side. Well i felt stupid, i bought 3 ak47 mags that i cant use, so back to the start. I decided to rewatch the mag mod video and ended up buying a tapco 20 just like in the video, but i wanted more ammo in the mag. I also bought an archangel 35 which looked like i might be able to make work as well. Once those got in i started the mod on the tapco, I followed the video step by step again and IT WOULDN’T SEAT ARGGggggg…….. After email and calls to SGW i found the problem. the SKS mags need to have ammo in the spring slot to get the clearance needed to work right. for some reason if your mag is empty when you try and put it in, the ammo plug in the spring chamber of the mag gets in the way and it can’t line up correctly. drop a bullet in the mag and it works the way it should, really weird. Oh and if your wondering if the Archangel 35 worked… it modified like the tapco just fine, its close and as of this post im sending in i haven’t fired either mags yet but they both seat great and the cycle thru and eject like before i put the FML in so we will see. Oh Yeah the Archangel 35 comes with an extended mag release, so if you don’t have one, its a bonus but it might get a little caught up in your mag holder.

Hopefully this goes thru and give you an idea what the archangel looks like once its modified close to the way the tapco was. The first 3 pics and the last are of  the mag itself and the 4th-5th are of the mag in the gun, one with it seated with the FML in front and the in gun in back, which shows the mags extended release ready to be used.  The last pic shows the FML and the archangel mag seated together and there no issues. I have NOT fired the gun but the bolt and ammo eject are working great.

Time to clean it up, adjust the FML for the mag and get it all together to try it out.

SGWorks’s  Response:

Thank you Jason for the feedback and post. The only exception we would take with the information you gave is that you can install empty mags with the Forward Moving Lug. We have found that the top of the magazine needs to be parallel with Main Housing when inserting the magazines. It takes a little practice getting used to this positioning as you never had to do this with an SKS duckbill magazine. In fact, using empty mags to practice inserting and removing the magazines, will help you become very proficient in loading and unloading magazines from the firearm.


FML Update #11 Thursday 02/08/18 ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT OF FML PRESALE!!!

February 8th, 2018

Just a little reminder there are only three days left to purchase the SGWorks FML at the presale price of $39.95. Once the presale is over, the price is $49.95.

Also, in case you have missed the news, for a limited time, if you already own the stock and would like to purchase the FML but you do not have the time or the means to install the FML yourself, you can purchase the FML, send us your Main Housing along with $20 and we will install your FML into your Main Housing and ship it back to you.

Customers have also asked if we can modify their detachable magazines. We can only do it under the following conditions: 1. The magazines must be Tapco magazines, and 2. You would need to turn them into 10 round magazines (We are located in CA)  by installing a 1/8th aluminum rivet at a prescribed measurement down the back rib of the magazine. Once the magazines are modified and returned to you, easily drill out the rivet with a 1/8” drill bit. If you are interested in this service, email us for details.

FML PRESALE TO END FEB. 11TH

We have now shipped out well over half of all the FML presales. At our present rate of shipping, we expect to complete the shipping process of all FML presales by Friday the 9th of February.

If you have held back from purchasing SGWorks FML until near the end of the presale, you wanted to be sure the FML’s would even ship or you wanted to check out additional reviews, now is the time to get in on the FML presale price of only $39.95 because there are only 10 days left. After the close of the sale, the price will be $49.95

Also, in case you have missed the news, for a limited time, if you already own the stock and would like to purchase the FML but you do not have the time or the means to install the FML yourself, you can purchase the FML, send us your Main Housing along with $20 and we will install your FML into your Main Housing and ship it back to you.

Here is what my Norinco SKS with 16 1/2″ barrel looks like.  Great product.  Here’s my Norinco SKS with the bullpup kit. Personally, I really like this product.  Total OAL is 26 3/4″,  barrel OAL is 16 1/2″. The weight is a bit hefty, about 9 1/2  to 10 with a 20 round mag.  But then again, it’s an SKS. Other than that, hoping for a left hand bolt something so I can save my dental work, but for now, a combination shell deflector and barrier keeps that from being a problem.

SGW:

We do not recommend our stock kit for left handed shooters (the bolt carrier handle will knock out your teeth); however, we know someone who does quality work and has come up with a modification using the SGWorks Bullpup Stock Kit. Please contact us for more information:

FML Update #9 Saturday – 11/25/2017

November 25th, 2017

We have some fantastic news. Two days ago we received the first production run of our new FML’s.

This next week we will begin our finishing/assembly process. We expect to begin shipping Friday December 1st.

Rather than close down the presale on the day we begin to ship, we have decided to wait until Friday, December 8th, before closing down the sale, in order for the word to get around to those who did not want to purchase until we actually begin to ship.

We have also included three additional video links with this post, to help answer additional questions and/or concerns.

For those customers who purchase our FML, but already possess our SKS bullpup stock kit, you can send us your stripped, main housing component along with $20, we will install your FML and ship your main housing back to you. Send your EMR along too, and we will switch out the original lever with the extra-long lever.

For new orders (Kit and FML), once we start shipping the FML, it will come pre-installed at our cost. If you order before we end the pre-sale, you’ll get that pre-sale pricing and the FML installed. There is a place when you order to send a message to seller (SGW) and you can ask us to wait until we have the FML’s to ship with the Kit once we start shipping the completed FML’s.

Did the Duracoat myself. I have shot the gun though before I coated it. Love.

Thanks for the SKS stock. When I show it off to other firearm  enthusiasts and friends, they’re instantly intrigued by its scary tacticoolness. I put mine on a Norinco and really like it.
