The Man Behind Civilian Force Arms

posted on December 19, 2016

On the Wednesday edition of “CN Live,” Colion Noir visited with Yonas Hagos. A veteran Army solider and Purple Heart recipient, Hagos is the founder of Civilian Force Arms, a company that designs and builds custom AR-15s. 

Noir talks with Hagos about Civilian Force Arms, both how he began the company and the obstacles he had to overcome along the way. His goal was to produce firearms that are military grade, but designed for civilians. From his early days as a child refugee from Sudan, Hagos has dedicated his life to serving his country, and he prides himself on producing firearms that are American-made.
