Just watched that, wow. It's the Polish RAS or IO, if that is even possible.
AOA on their FB page put out a clarification of who these guys are. But yeah, seems IOuch and Centry drunk monkeys got some competition.

I have had a lot of customers confusing Pioneer Arms in Radom with our original Polish Military surplus parts from Zakłady Mechaniczne Łucznik (the famous Radom plant). The legendary Polish Military Small Arms Factory known for the circle 11 symbol or as Radom on the USA market is now called Fabryka Broni.
Radom is a city in Poland and Fabryka Broni moved to a huge modern state of the art facility and Pioneer Arms simply rents part of the old building they worked in many years ago. The other private owned factory in Poland that supplies us is WBP in Rogow Poland and they are completely separate from Pioneer Arms. WBP is marketed more towards the higher end market and they machine most of their components and use a lot of old school production methods such as producing new forged trunnions. Obviously when most Americans hear the word "Radom" they become highly confused and think Polish Military production so its a good marketing strategy. We are not going to say anything negative about Pioneer Arms but we wanted to clear this up for our customers because we get calls about this almost daily when we sell our Polish parts.
Yikes! As a comparison I bought one of the Atlantic Firearms Semi built Romanian underfolders and finished it temporarily with a tapco G2 trigger group and was pinging steel at 200 yds with minor elevation adjustment out of the box. No issues and has Atlantic's customer service behind it for $469.00, very happy with it but would be pissed if I had bought that POS Robski just reviewed.
I don't think these are on the market just yet but sounds like they will be soon.
I always thought PA was rebranded IO. Guess not but apparently same mentality.
Either way when I first saw it called a "hellpup" that was enough for me. Guns with tough sounding names are usually garbage

There was a video out a couple years ago of these guys building rifles. The video showed them riveting the trunnion into the receiver with the barrel already installed. We know this isn't the correct method.
I got enough crap to remember as it is
