the revolvr story
some things you should know about us
a bit on our philosophy
"Hundreds of millions of dollars are exchanged each year in the secondary firearm market, we are looking to decrease the friction of this exchange using technologies of today paired with our new partners at PistolPay to enable safe payments between gun owners across the United States. We created Revolvr so that the firearm industry can revolve their used firearm accessories." says John Hwang, founder & CEO of Revolvr.
“We wanted to create a mobile first experience with Revolvr which is why we didn’t start with a website commerce site. Eventually we will have a website though we didn’t want that to drive our design or user experience in the mobile centric society we operate in today’s world.” says Tony Bristol, founder & Chief Product Officer of Revolvr.
