John Noveske Killed in Car Accident

Noveske Rifleworks is one of the premiere AR-15 barrel builders in the United States. I’ve used one of their complete upper receivers for years in 3-gun competitions and even after thousands of rounds the thing continues to out-shoot me. In short, their stuff is amazing and one of the watchwords for quality in the industry. John Noveske was the man behind Noveske Rifleworks, founded in 2001 with the goal of making precision AR-15 rifles, and according to the Oregon State Police he was involved in a fatal car accident late Friday night. Make the jump for the official statement from Noveske Rifleworks . . .

Noveske Rifleworks would ask you to remember the passing of our founder, John Noveske, who died Friday, January 4th 2013 in an automobile accident.

John planned for all eventualities, and wanted to ensure any changes would be as seamless as possible for our customers, dealers, suppliers, employees and friends. While this will be a trying time, we do not expect a change in the day to day operations of Noveske Rifleworks. We would like to thank you for your support as we deal with our loss, and would ask that instead of flowers, you consider a donation to a cause we will announce at later date.

John was more than just the founder of Noveske Rifleworks, he was a loving husband and father, and caring friend.
