to whom it may concern, and to those who have ordered the hesse ak 47's from us via joeken firearms. we are sorry but we WILL NOT SELL ANY HESSE MADE AK'S. out of a $20,000 order barely a handful of new izmash ak's imported through eaa. and joeken wee servicable. both eaa and joken firearms and us basically got screwed by hesse. the guns ordered had paint peeling off receiver, poor workmanship, off set front sights, rust, and poor modifications done to them by hesse. hesse has been contacted several times and they will not respond to complaints, there for we must conclude they do not care about customer response to their products or work. we advise all our customers to be very careful when ordering anyof their products, and we would sugjest that if you have other avenues of purchase available to you to explore them thouroughly before buying a hesse made weapon .ask your dealers alot of questions first before you spend your money. as we intend not to patronise hesse again unless it is absolutly unavoidable.
