Yeah, IIRC he was under a very fine microscope for some of his business practices. It also didn't help drawing attention that he preferred being paid in some sort of gold standard for his services or products.. BATF is bad Joo-Joo... BATF and IRS even worse Joo-Joo!Keep in mind if you want to build one of these and or any other 80% product do it now as KT ordinance is under fire from BATF lately and he was one of the premiere 80% dude when it came to who to buy 80% products from
I would be very careful who I buy from when it comes to this kind of thing as BATF has had Richards phones tapped for like the last 8 months or so.
That's what he told me the last time I spoke with him about 6 months ago.

Before he moved to Montana, he had a shop set-up somewhere in NH.
This was a number of years ago. At the time, there were no new production M-1911s for legal sale in this state (AGs Consumer "Protection" rules ). At the time, he used to host build parties for AR and 1911 receivers/frames. The deal was that he set everything up in the milling machine and all you had to do was push the start button (hey... I manufactured it... right?).
I came this close -->.<--, to making the making the trek up there for a 1911 build.
Fortunately I never did as S&W 1911s were on the horizon of being getting the MA seal of approval.
Maybe there's a bit of misunderstanding, but I have no problems or issues with that method of payment or way of conducting business. But... however legal and proper as it might be, that sort of activity (combined with walking a fine line WRT manufacturing firearms), tends to get a person noticed and a bit more scrutiny from the alphabet agencies.Richard wanted to be paid in something of real value I can totally relate to his request to be paid like this. As the crap we have been using as money has had no actual value since 1933. And when I say actual value I mean Something of value in the material the $$$ is made of Silver, Gold, Platinum, Ect. As I'm sure you all know this by this late date but the Federal Reserve System/Bank is no more federal then FEDEX and there is no reserve.
The only value that the FRN has is what ever value the American public puts on it. It is a DEBT Instrument. And I don't know if you east coasters care or not but when you attempt to pay a dept with FIAT money you don't actually pay the dept you only discharge it.
Look up in Blacks law dictionary the difference between PAY and DISCHARGE.
I see nothing wrong with this tactic in fact I totally approve of it and I also Have accepted payment in junk silver for my products.
Nice iron!I had the tool box open and took a pic while they were out.
Top is a DPMS .22 upper on a RR lower
Next is my SR. A WOA upper on a Stag lower (the only thing I'm shooting this year)
My Match Rifle: a Fulton Armory Accutron upper on an old Colt SP1 lower (I vow not to use it this coming season)
A DPMS .308 (don't ask)
and a M4 upper w/ Trijicon Reflex II (my porcupine eliminator)
No, not at all.. I feel the same way. I love my 6520 but I already want toIs it sad that I have had this less then a month and already want another one?
