When house bill hr 1022 was introduced, I bought an Olympic Arms K3B after doing alot of research on the subject. I know I do not know as much about black rifles as DC, but what I did learn is that the company was started in the 1950s and P.O. Ackley was one of the originally owners. All of the parts are made in house, except for the magazine. There is an out of business company here in Wilson, NC that used to make magazines and I have a friend who has given me 5 or 6 polycarbonate near indestructible mags of various sizes. Should be used in Iraq, as they do not get hot and you can run over them with a truck and they do not crush. Also, the military sends alot of their automatic weapons to them for repair. Plus, the price was good. Shoots like a dream. Teamed it up with a Hakko 4x scope with a 223 drop compensator, originally built for the Colts destined for the military. Nice scope also.
