Unique-ARs, like many great companies, started in a garage. It was born out of a passion for customizing gear by the founder, Jim Corbet. During the great recession Jim was presented with the opportunity to pursue his passion of customizing everything he owns by building his own CNC equipment in his garage. He immediately put those tools to work designing and customizing the gear he loves to use. This of course, led to firearms. With help and suggestions of friends and family he took the idea of custom firearms to a whole new level, transforming a basic rifle to a truly unique work of art. Through creative thinking Jim found that he could produce a rifle that would become a beloved family heirloom.
Once the rifles started getting great feedback on social media, it was obvious that there was a business to be built. Jim had two family members come on as partners to help bring the ideas out of the garage and into a full fledged company. They purchased some industrial CNC equipment and started working out all the details for production. When the orders started coming faster and faster a team was needed to keep everything running smoothly. It is now a complete team effort at Unique-ARs to bring continued innovation and an ever-expanding product line to the industry.
Unique-ARs’ future is bright. Exciting innovations such as the fully customizable Unique-Grip, are added to the pipeline regularly. The immediate future sees our team of outstanding designers, machinists, painters and customer care specialists expanding the company to encompass not only customized firearms but a variety of outdoor gear as well. Because we are based in the mountains of Idaho our team lives the outdoor life and passionately brings innovation to the equipment we all use on a daily basis. Stay tuned to see what comes next from the Unique-Family.
