Noreen Arms goes big and they don’t go home. These guys win SHOT Show this year. They brought a damn CNC machine and cut 80% AR lowers and sold them to the attendees. I mean how cool is that? What is even cooler is that they are about 100 foot away from the ATF’s booth. Not that the ATF has any problem with 80% lowers. They’re perfectly legal. It was just an interesting juxtaposition. Too bad they aren’t machining pistol braces.
Aside from the coolness of the site-made lowers, Noreen had a new gun here at SHOT as well. If you are not familiar with Noreen, they make big bore AR styled rifles. Their Bad News line is available in 338 Lapua or 300 Winchester Magnum. They have a slightly smaller AR style rifle that is chambered for 30-06, 270 Win or 25-06 Remington.
But new this year they have a new rifle in 408 Chey Tac. This is a piston driven semi automatic with a 10 round magazine. It is 23 pounds of awesome. I’m sold. We have a review gun inbound from Noreen, so we’ll be able to put the bigger-is-better philosophy to the test.
