    So I stumbled across an add on Armslist for this little rifle and I am a little taken back that I have never seen it before.


    AR15 modular, take down, Glock mags, all metal, convertable to other calibers, how the hell did I miss this.

    On top of that its made in Vernonia right here in Oregon.

    I feel like I got robbed.

    I went all Glock 9mm for every pistol I own as of the end of 2013, minus a 10mm I had to have and a 22lr Ruger. I have been thinking I need a 9mm carbine to go with those pistols. One that takes Glock mags. I was considering a build using a Wolf Lower. Well now I dont have to. I'm going to get my hands on one of these.

    With that said those here who have one speak up! I want some reviews. I found plenty online, but local review never hurt. Rifle sound pretty stout and accurate.

    Post up!

    Those look alright. I wish someone'd make something good for like $350-400 that'd take glock mags. How much is that one, pray tell?

    I saw the add as well and if I remember they started around $650. I really wish keltec would get their crap together and make some damn sub 2ks. When those came out msrp was $300, meaning street price should have been $250, not $650.

    The dealer in the dad is selling the black model for 650. I'm not too sure on the new colors. He said he would look into it. Meanwhile I'll reach out to a few other shops and see if they can get me one and at what price.

    I had one in .45. I loved it and mostly got it as a SHTF carbine to match my handgun caliber. I liked the fact that you can unscrew the barrel and store it in a backpack as well. I only sold it to a friend because I never shot it and it just sat in my safe. Very accurate and lightweight machine.

    Been busting my balls at work and the dealer is by appointment only from the add. I may need to see if I can get a more available dealer to get there hands on it for me.

    They were at the last Rickreall gun show with a load of the black ones. There is another show this weekend in Rickreall. Maybe they will be back. Only $5 admission and free parking.

    I nearly bought one there until I found someone else selling a Just Right Carbine. It had a few more features I liked, so I bought it instead. Then I sold it to a buddy when I found an IMI model B Uzi in the case with 4 mags and the short display barrel and the next gun show I attended.

    If anyone has any questions in regards to the ASR, I can be of assitance.

    I am a long time member of NWFA and the local firearms community.

    I am the project manager of the Aero Survival Rifle and production manager for TNW.

    Although the ASR is not my design, I did the R&D and protoype work on the unit prior to production.

    I am also known as the "that is correct guy"...o_O, for reasons some of you are already familiar with.

    The pictures above are for the new colors for 2014. Olive Oxide and Magnese Tan.

    If you are having trouble locating a unit for purchase you may contact the factory for assitance:

    503-429-5001

    sales@tnwfirearms.com

    Let them know Jay sent you!

    .22 mag is first, and the .22 lr will be shortly behind it. I am trying to have them in production by this fall's Knob Creek...but I want to make sure reliability is a priority, even in the event refinement causes a slight set back in the release date.

    I also would like to clarify the ASR will fire .9/.40 /.45 and eventualy the .22's all through the same reciever. It takes less than a couple minutes to swap-out calibers.

    In the not so far but not very near future, we will start the R&D for the 357 sig and the 10mm.

    They are on paper already.

    So, if one were to get any rifle, can you get the parts to change to .22?

    At the moment you can purchase in any caliber and get the 9mm kit, the .40 kit, or the 45acp kit.

    BY summer to the latest the .22 kit will be available in MAG, and by the end of the summer at the latest the LR.
