    Rainier Arms in Auburn, WA makes some pretty fantastic AR15's and AR10's. They also sell some of Tactical Tailor and Grey Ghost Gear's equipment.
    https://www.rainierarms.com

    Grey Ghost Gear is based in Idaho. They started in making Molle style pouches and assault packs. They now sell their own AR15's and AR10's. They also sell true body armor. They only require some sort of carry license from any state.
    Their is an independently owned retail location in Auburn, WA

    Boonie Packer began as a one man operation from a home garage in 1977. At the time, it was known as Johnson Firearm Specialties or J.F.S. Inc. The initial product was the Safariland Revolver Speedloader. We continue to sell them an expanded line of products and the supportive business practices of Safariland and in particular, Neale Perkins, the founder, have been a large factor in our success.

    Dave Johnson, the founder and owner of JFS/ Boonie Packer classifies himself as an inventor/manufacturer, as he has designed all of the products we make. The name Boonie Packer came about when we started production of the Safari Sling and the then vice president, Glenn Wisser, said, "That is a really neat sling for packing a rifle out in the boonies." The name stuck, and we now do business under that name.

    Glenn also coined the name "Redi-Mag" and it has become one of our most successful products. We continue to expand and improve our product line so that it represents better function and greater value. For over thirty years our customers have been very important to us, and we continue this tradition with our products, all made here in Oregon.

    I HAVE A FEW OF THESE AND THEY ARE UNDERPRICED IMO! Get them at BI-Mart.

    Have to give them a nod. They made and donated the AR that Jeannie won in the OFF raffle a few years ago. Beautiful piece of work!!

    Tactical Tailor bought GGG a little while ago, so while they have a separate retail shop, it's the same company now. TT also makes bags and gear for other companies, some are pretty big names.

    Like Rainier, GGG doesnt build manufacture their own guns. I believe they use Mega.

    I talked to these guys at the last gun show and they were real nice and patient with this dumb newbie. Prices looked reasonable, from what I know, and I was really liking the looks of their uppers. http://www.greyareausa.com/

    Their on the West side somewhere, Beaverton I think it was.

    Rainier arms does not manufacture anything (unless assembly counts as manufacture in some legal sense) The re-brand parts made by other quality folks. I by no means know all the details but Mega does produce at least the billet lowers and uppers branded Rainer, Both Wilson and Black-hole Weaponry manufacture barrels for them. D.Wilson I am pretty sure makes there bolt carriers and of course all the little bits are like charging handles, safety's and mag buttons are made by yet other folks. Everything branded Rainer is made by industry leaders, this is in no way meant to put down the practice and I own a fair amount of gear with the Rainer logo. However most of the time I would just prefer the folks who built it got credit.

    I think the Rainer Arms lowers uppers and lowers are the only thing built for them that is proprietary and I actually prefer the Rainer Arms version to the Mega, but the Mega is still very skookum.

    The above ^^^ posted while I was typing.....Is this^^ serious? Who's using one of these? LOL.


    I must be missing something being a noob to the AR platform, but I'm learning more every day. $2000.00 to nearly $3000.00 for a complete upper!? I'mean, REALLY? WTH, for that it had better make me able to hit a quarter sized group at three hundred yards with my eye closed.
    Sheesh.

    Think of them like cars. A ferrari has a very high price. But its not necessarily the best at the track and breaks down a lot and parts cost a ton. But people still buy them to say they have a Ferrari.

    That $2700 Erath3 upper has a Proof Research $1000 carbon fiber barrel. Just like carbon fiber in a car, it will shave a little weight and get you around the track a tenth of a second faster. But is it worth the money? Probably only to a race car team

    I agree. I have a Mega Maten AR10 carbine and love it. IronMonster, how long have you lived in the area? I ask because I have been around the area since grade school. In the late 80's to early 90's, for just a few 5 or 6 years. There was a gun manufacturer in Auburn that made a mean carbine and pistol designed by a former LEO.It was called the D-Max.

    The one I have is chambered in 10mm. They made 9mm, .40S&W, 10mm, and .45acp. Here are some images of the pistol version. The carbine is a pretty rare item but try and find a pistol without giving up your first born.
