    Default "NOVESKE" Nirvana "WOW"

    Wow, what a high class piece of machinery. (I have nothing to do with Noveske, but love my new equipment). Especially the NSR Handguard.

    Another? They've been around for years. Probably one of the best in the business. I just can't see the value vs. BCM, Daniel Defense or Colt in a combat gun. They are 1/2 again as much money for very little gains in performance.

    John Noveske certainly made a name for himself - Although many don't think his creations are worth the prevailing price, "SOME FOLKS" apparently do - I've known John for some years now, before he began gunsmithing, can personally vouch for his committment to God and Country ( reputation too) and have never known a person more honest and eager to please than him - I've noticed that Melvin Forbes does not see the "need" to give his work away, nor do many, MANY others either - If you've not had the pleasure of shooting and experiencing Noveske's work and imagination you are missing out of a smile making time

    Good ,bad, indifferent, cheap or expensive it is another (as in one of many others) AR platform. Ugh!
    Noveske may be a very fine fellow and he may make very fine ARs. I have no idea but it's still another AR. Fortunately we all don't have to like the same thing.

    New Balance shoe company back in 1988 made the 1500 knowing it wasn't worth $150.00. But they knew if they priced the shoe that high, people would buy it thinking it must be something special.

    Enough people think it must be something special it keeps Noveske in business. Maybe it is.

    good point rbuck351 and one I'll always defend - John does make a near perfect "functional" AR, that is what got his foot in the door with the military but it's still an AR and just to set the record straight, I don't own any at this time, I'm a bolt gun guy, I just know what Noveske is "about" and can't keep my mouth shut

    I suppose another valid point to concede is that approx 2/3 of his business comes through military and law enforcement channels - OP $$ as often as not

    A "Spartan" Baikal double rifle does the same thing as a "basic" Butch Searcy double, but I would say the Searcy is worth the money. Never had a Noveske, but if I had the $$$ to spend on a high end AR, that would be a top choice. I primarily like to shoot classic old guns, but ARs are just pure fun. If I needed and AR for "business", I'd get a Noveske or an LMT.

    Got any pictures, AGL?

    What about the NSR turns your crank? There's about a 40 page thread on M4C concerning it

    I like it because it is small diameter and you can get your hand around it like grabbing a Winchester M-92 I never like the quad-rail handguards.

    Translation for folks:

    "mine is nothing more than the rifle that sets the 'standard' for fighting carbines to live up to"...

    also:

    "my rifle is build to the TDP and yours isn't"

    Gotta love the 'ol 6920!!

    But I still feel inadequate.

    I have no CQB optic. No forend grip. No light. No storage unit.....

    I do have the upgraded Colt super stock (sort of like a magpul with an additional lock, I havent figured out why the lock is there, o well they sent it to me for free to demo) and a set of used old style milsurp Knights rails. But they are covered. Theres nothing hanging off. My rifle is useless....I am useless.

    Maybe I will put a can on it. That will make me competitive in the modern gun world again. I have enough revolvers made before 1920 now anyway.
