I have heard only good things about the rifles, but due to the actions of a few people on this board, he has stopped dealing with CA people.

AZEX rifles are not as nice as the owner thinks they are.Don't get me wrong they are very nice and the finish is top notch but I have seen home builds that are just as nice or nicer.

I called him after he was banned and spoke to why he was so enraged with Californians. He was as eloquent as he could be telling me if a few people could complain and get him banned he wanted no part of this state. I asked if he thought he had any part in his dismissal and he said no. I recall him acting as a child would and posting inflamatory comments followed by a few look what "I" can own threads showing off some cali illegal rifles. His racist post did not help much either.

I say BS that "the actions of a few members" soured him. He came in here acting like a jerk and when someone insulted his poor eggshell ego, he decides that he is too good to do work for us. Not only that, but the man is an admitted white supremacist.

Here are some choice quotes of his off the FALfiles. Do you really want to buy guns from a guy who says this about California residents?




Me: "No more Kali builds, sorry."

"may I ask why?"

"Sure, and I'm happy to tell you, because, as a group, you Kalidiots are whiny, demanding and cheap, you make 40% more in wages then we do and snivel and whine because you get charged extra for a 10rd mag and the work to permanently install it. I'm sick of you guys and don't need your business enough to put up with your bull****."



That state is just full of pussies. I can't describe it any other way.

You get the .gov you endure and they've endured so much that they are mentally beat down and act like they are doing something immoral.

So I'm done with the whole mess.

You wanna see a bunch of whiny, sandy manginas, check out calguns.net

A bigger bunch of hanky soakers there never was.

So arrogant, so demanding, so smug in their Kali-kommie self-supposed superiority, that when they ask you a question, then ask you "why?" and you tell them, straight out, with no paddy-caking, why, that they are all butthurt and start whining some more.

The Entitlement mentality reaches all corners in the PRK, even gun owners apparently.

Although "owners" really isn't accurate, they paid for them and "possess" them, until their masters tell them otherwise.

Yeah, his product is good but doesn't overcome the attitude.

[Ariz. Response Systems' T. Mark Graham ("Gunplumber") has a "doesn't suffer fools lightly" attitude too, but nothing like this.]

Derrick (AZEX) essentially turned into a flamebaiting troll spammer.

You'll do just fine with your FAL builds if you talk to Rich Saunders of Century Gun Works ("CGW") in Gardnerville, NV. Great service, beautiful builds, real solid FAL knowledge ....

Erm, his FINISH is good. Very good, actually - it's apparently moly-coat over parkerization, which always looks oiled. His rifles also come with excellent synthetic furniture, and the depressions are nicely filled with white stuff so the markings stand out. They're built off of unissued Romanian 'G' kits, purportedly. This does mean chrome lined barrels, like any Romy. They do have a lifetime warranty.

However, the rivet work frequently exposes a gap at the rear of the trigger guard, occasionally there are halos on the rivets, and the magwells don't always fit properly. Except for the magwell, it's all cosmetic, and the magwell issues can be fixed by filing down some on the mag release or filing down some on the mag.

He built a Yugo M70AB2 for me and it is absoloutly stunning.

If I can get him to agree, I'll get him to build my Yugo-M70-in-a-box that's been sitting for months.

I think Ivan has seen this Yugo build, he can talk to the quality. Everything fits perfectly, the finish is great, and the rivets are very well done - no halos.

I deal with him on a weekly basis.....I've been to his manufacturing plant and had lunch with him on several occasions......he's been nothing but a professional.......

You guys know me as a die hard AR guy and we picked AZEX AKs cause they back up what they sell.....we looked at all the AKs on the market...ARSENALs are the best but $$$$.

You pull out an AZEX AK on the range and people will stop and take notice.......:cool:

They also have about 12-14 US parts which leaves room if you want add a commie folding stock for a fixed mag build.
