Many shooters out there have been longing to own an AR-15. However, this is often impossible due to the price. Therefore, most people must settle for longingly looking through the glass case, wishing they could keep this impressive firearm for themselves.
Luckily, there’s a Pennsylvania company that feels the pain that many shooters feel. And, as a result, they’re meeting consumers where they’re at financially. And they’re giving them something to smile about.
The company is known as the Kahr Firearms Group. And their impressive legacy is built on making their own guns (as well as Thompson-style firearms).
And the project the Kahr Firearms Group has been tirelessly working on is their line of budget-conscious Thompson ARs. These are lovingly based on the popular “Tommy Gun,” which rose to fame during the 1920s. The company even made their first sale – to a local police chief.
The company’s founder and CEO Justin Moon has big dreams for Kahr Firearms Group. He says he hopes to put one of their ARs into every American home. After all, the AR-15 has risen to immense popularity, and has become America’s favorite rifle.
Moon’s brother, Sean Moon, has also been receiving a lot of media attention lately. That’s because he was leading a church recently, and was encouraging the congregation to bring their ARs in for mass. Why? Moon said they could do this in order to receive a blessing.
The two brothers are extremely gun-friendly. A trait which they may have gotten from their father, Rev. Sun Myung Moon. Their father is the founder of South Korea’s Unification Church.
Originally, Justin Moon’s hope was to build his firearm manufacturing plant in the state of New York. However, the introduction of new state laws in 2013 made this very difficult to produce military-style firearms.
Luckily, Justin seems to be doing well for himself in Pennsylvania, which he feels is much more gun-friendly. Moon also feels he can better relate to Pennsylvanians, as he shares similar hobbies such as camping, fishing, and hunting.
He also resonates with Pennsylvanians’ love for their nation and their freedom, as well as their strong values.
Justin currently has 25 employees working for him. However, he will be looking to hire more once his new manufacturing plant is running.
Once the plant is in business, Moon plans to manufacture the company’s new line of Thompson ARs. And, to ensure these are available to as many people as possible, he wants to sell them for less than $700. This low price will help keep the firearms affordable, and will help more AR-loves gain the firearm they’ve been dreaming off.
Not to mention, part of the Thompson AR’s appeal is that it has a similar look to the 1920’s “Tommy Gun.” After all, many shooters will likely want to purchase the firearm for its unique look alone. And that’s likely to be the case regardless of the price.
However, shooters who want to keep their wallets full will appreciate adding this functional, classic, sharp-shooting firearm to their collection.
