Noveske is a well-known rifle manufacturer within the firearms industry. It carries a legacy of building premium, rugged, and reliable ARs for the end user. To have a premium rifle experience that Noveske provides comes at a hefty price tag. With its newest rifle series, the company seeks to change that. Noveske is proud to introduce a new budget-friendly version of their rifles, meet the Chainsaw. Noveske is calling the new Chainsaw series “The People’s Rifle” due to its budget-friendly price point while also offering the same build quality and reliability as their top-tier ARs.

The new Chainsaw will feature forged upper and lower receivers that combine elements from their Gen 1 and Gen 4 rifle designs. This is a purpose-built rifle meant to be run hard and abused according to Noveske. The new Chainsaw series will come in three different barrel lengths and will be offered individually as a complete rifle, pistol, or SBR. Customers will also have the ability to purchase complete Chainsaw upper and lower receivers as well.

Below, is the press release and key features of the Chainsaw series from Noveske.

Press Release


Chainsaw will now be Noveske’s forged product offering based on a hybrid of our Gen 1 and Gen 4 designs. We have modified the basic M4 look to match our Gen 4 aesthetic of intentional lines and smooth fit. Noveske will offer Chainsaw in three barrel lengths and two calibers to meet your needs.

This product line, as its name suggests, is intended for hard and practical use. It will be Noveske’s utilitarian offering, with the same quality and dependability, at a price point open to more users.

Chainsaw will only be offered in black anodizing. It’s up to you to be creative and build out your chainsaw rifle. Think of it as buying a stock Tacoma.
