Mr. Hall began his career designing AR-platform firearms in 2005 after being approached by LWRC to help design their SABR, originally proposed as a “compact” piston-operated AR10. Upon successful completion of his work, the SABR was renamed REPR and became LWRCI’s flagship product.

East Texas Machining & Manufacturing LLC (ETMM) began in Mr. Hall’s Leander, TX garage with a basic CNC machine in 2009. Between 2009 and 2016, Mr. Hall designed and made high-precision AR’s, including the world’s first long-action AR in 338 Lapua Mag. In 2016, Mr. Hall developed and patented the folding AR10 and AR15 upper (US Patent 9,995,556), and created the FoldAR brand in 2018.

Mr. Hall focuses on the general management of FoldAR’s operations, as well as developing new products and scalable manufacturing strategies for complex components and assemblies. In total, Mr. Hall has 24 years’ experience in complex product design and advanced manufacturing strategies. As an inventor, he has been granted 8 utility patents, bringing 5 to market, with several more in claim-development.

Mr. Hall is an honorably discharged US Navy Veteran.
