Loki weapon systems?

My son is wanting to purchase an AR from a buddy....I heard this company is out of business....Should he pass? It sounds like a good deal....I wonder since they are out of business?

Did some brief searching. Wow! That company really took a lot of people for a lot of $$$.

I had not heard of them before you posted.

What little I could find seemed to indicate they made a good rifle, but their billet receiver sets might not have been compatible with mil-spec uppers.

I would recommend passing on it for a reputable maker.

If the uppers fit the lowers, that does sound like a good deal. What they made was generally quality even if the owner did end up being a flake who is likely in deep legal trouble.

Any armorer worth his salt would be able to work on them without issue, provided again the lowers and uppers fit correctly.

Well, your son has probably found a good deal then.
