Hey there Patreon!

So first off, I want to get it off my chest: I used to dislike the concept of Patreon. Seriously, I figured if I liked doing these videos for free, why did I think it was a good idea to beg for money? Not my style.

Fast forward, and we're working on some of the craziest and most ambitious projects yet. Me and my team are truly pushing the envelope of what the AK platform can do, and going farther and farther every day!

So why Patreon?

Truthfully? Because I hate saying no to you guys when you have ideas. Let me explain...

So I guess I kind of asked for this when I announced I was working on the AK-50, but every day I get dozens of fan suggestions for crazy builds to attempt (mostly AK, but some all over the place). But being a businessman, I know that I can't afford to pour the time and money into R&D on something that won't make me a return.

But then I had an epiphany...

What if I removed profit from the equation? If I could have a slush fund to pay for R&D, suddenly I don't have to care if something will sell 100 units or not. We can do it just for the absolute hell of it. The door is wide open to try some of the crazier stuff nobody would ever attempt otherwise. All of a sudden, Patreon had a real purpose for us that wouldn't be possible otherwise.

So we will have regular polls where YOU get to choose what WE design, prototype, and build. Not only will we build these crazy projects, but we will also (as always) show you every step of the process, and post it for all to see for free on YouTube!

What the money will be used for:

  • Tooling (Chamber reamers, gauges, cutters, etc)
  • CAD Software
  • Necessary build parts (Barrel blanks, kits, handguards, etc)
  • Energy Drinks
  • Definitely not hookers
  • Definitely not, not hookers
  • What was the question?


One last big thing...

I forgot to mention one thing. What happens with these crazy one-off prototypes? It's not really fair that I horde them to myself. After all, even though I designed and created it, you guys footed the bill. So I figured it was only fair to give it away to YOU

That's right, every single prototype that has it's R&D paid for by this Patreon is going to be given away to a randomly selected Patreon Patron, every time!


So that's all! As always, I am humbled by the overwhelming support you guys have showed me and my team. It is my honor to go where no man has gone before, in the name of making cool shit that goes bang and putting it on the internet to show you guys. Thanks for letting us do what we do!
