Noveske Rifleworks was founded in 2001 by the late John (Johnny) Noveske Jr. & his wife, Lorina. Their driving force in creating an AR company was to develop & produce incredibly accurate & reliable weapon systems to equip our soldiers and the American people in the wake of the terrorist attack on 9/11.
Prior to this, Johnny worked for Pac-Nor Barreling, a nationally recognized ‘match grade’ barrel manufacturer. This is where his passion for improving and innovating on the AR platform was realized. He believed the barrel was the most important component of any rifle or firearm but didn’t want to stop there. He was able to fund the launch of Noveske Rifleworks by being a good old-fashioned gunsmith, re-barreling hunting and target rifles with the ultimate goal of using that money to test his theories on how to improve the AR platofrm. His motivation was based on a simple idea–People whose life depend on the reliability and accuracy of their weapon should have a weapon built without compromise. All materials, workmanship and design of the product he was developing should be the very best available, period.
In this, he pioneered creating a firearms community that never stopped striving for improvement and innovation.
After his passing in 2013, Lorina and the Noveske crew made it their goal to ensure Johnny’s legacy lived on. The offering expanded and the organization took on new challenges all the while never swaying from the simple premise Johnny instilled, ‘No Compromise’ quality and reliable function!!!
Thank you for being part of our journey and allowing us to keep Johnny’s namesake intact.
