Adams Arms Makes BOLD Move to Dominate the Market

Posted on July 21st, 2014 by ar15news

Big things are happening in the halls of Adams Arms these days. Today they have the ability to take superior products to the market at industry leading prices. A recent move to bring production in house coupled with increasing overall productivity allows them to pass savings directly to customers. While traditional piston systems can cost an average of $1,200-$1,600, the Adams Arms base piston rife now has a MSRP of just $995. These prices allow the company to compete with lower priced, traditional rifle systems, while still offering consumers the ability to afford high-quality piston rifles, parts and accessories.

Adams Arms President and CEO Michael Froning commented, “We are extremely excited to be able to reset the bar from a product cost standpoint while delivering the highest quality products on the market. While the industry is seeing reduced prices to combat lagging sales, we have been able to drive our costs down significantly and pass on savings of over 20% to the consumer”

The company also announced exciting new upcoming projects to include:

* .308 Rifles

* Pistols

* .22 Rifles

* Shotguns

* Custom Slides

* Projectiles

* Accessories

More news on the release of these products is expected in the next few weeks.

Adams Arms Press Release

Established in 2007, Adams Arms began with an innovative design that improved the operating system of AR style rifles. The Adams Arms Retrofit Kit provided users the ability to upgrade their existing direct impingement rifles to a piston operated system in a mere thirty minutes or less using a 3/4 inch wrench and hammer. They received a patent in 2008 and gained major OEM partnerships which quickly made their system the number one piston system on the market with more than three times the OEM contracts of competitors.

By 2011 they were building their own upper assemblies and within a year manufacturing complete rifles. Adams Arms’ growth skyrocketed as they acquired their largest OEM manufacturer allowing them to produce the majority of their parts in-house. Adams Arms also develops and utilizes some of the most technologically advanced manufacturing processes, machining techniques and coatings, including QPQ, PVDs and Nickels, that far exceed Mil-Spec standards for quality and performance.

They launched VooDoo Innovations, a sister company, in 2013. VooDoo brings high end coatings and processes to the direct impingement market. With so much growth, a major decision was made to purchase $4 million in manufacturing assets. New equipment and the addition of key leadership and industry hires resulted in more than 75% of production moving in-house. Distribution channels were expanded to new distributors, buying groups, direct dealers and website retail sales.

This year they have continued to streamline production and grow their line with products such as:
-  XLP Low Profile Gas Block
-  C.O.R. Rifle
-  Ultra Lite Advanced Dissipator
-  Line of 300 BLK Products
-  VooDoo Rail System
-  VooDoo Innovations LifeCoat Parts

Badrock Tactical Making Waves In the High Quality AR Market

Posted on July 19th, 2014 by ar15news

Badrock Tactical is a newer AR manufacturer but that isn’t stopping them from already turning some heads. I recently had a chance to speak with the owner of Badrock Tactical and with a business model aimed at making high quality AR-15 and AR-10 components and complete rifles at an incredible price point, I felt it would be awesome to introduce them to those of you who read and follow AR15NEWS. 

Badrock Tactical recently teamed up with the talented people over at Juggernaut Tactical to start making their billet receivers sets and it has turned into an awesome partnership. Juggernaut Tactical is well known for their Rogue M1A Chassis plus some awesome 80% receivers and jigs. Badrock Tactical will use a similar set to the JT receivers for their rifles and they really make an extremely sweet looking build. The billet receiver sets are priced awesome as well at just $329 for AR-15 and $399 for AR-10 billet sets.

Badrock Tactical BT15 Rifle 2

The builds they put together are nothing short of breathtaking. They have styles to fit just about any shooter, including for those who like a little bling. They’ve literally gone through each rifle they offer and upgraded everything possible including Ambi Bolt Catches from Phase 5, PWS Enhanced Buffer Tubes, JP Silent Capture Buffer Springs and either Timney or Geissle Trigger Systems with several hand guard options and price ranges starting in the $1,800 range including custom Cerakote finishes. They will also be working with Juggernaut Tactical to make “less enhanced” rifles to market that will be more in the $1,300 range but still feature mil spec internals, the same billet receiver set, free float rail system, etc.

In Short, Badrock Tactical is a company to keep an eye on. They have some great stuff coming in the near future and appear to know a thing or two about creating some great looking rifles. In case you were wondering, I didn’t get paid to do this article (never have and never will sell article space) nor did I feel that I had to write this article. I wanted to do it because they have something different about them that I really like. Hopefully you love learning about new companies like I do and I hope to be able to work with Badrock Tactical more in the future to bring you new products and deals, etc. Speaking of deals, I almost forgot that Badrock Tactical wanted to offer a special 10% discount code to our readers. Use the code “AR15NEWS” now through Tuesday [7/22/14] at www.BadrockTactical.com.

Sneak Peek!! Rainier Arms A-DAC Forged Lower Receiver

Posted on July 18th, 2014 by ar15news

Now this is something I’m excited about. Rainier Arms (one of my favorite retailers) is coming out with a new version of their high quality Forged Lowers. The new lower will have the same features such as compatibility with the Battle Arms Development 45 degree selectors but will also add the A-DAC function from AXTS Weapons.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 1

The A-DAC function is a right-hand bolt catch (integrated into the magazine release button). The A-DAC allows you to hold the magazine release button in (dropping the mag if one is inserted), pull the charging handle to the rear and lock the bolt back all at the same time. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I could care less about an ambi Bolt RELEASE. I want an ambi Bolt HOLD to help with increasing the speed of clearing malfunctions, etc. There really isn’t any other reason for you to manually hold the bolt open unless you’re clearing a malfunction or inspecting the weapon which in both cases you will want to remove the magazine. The A-DAC system is the perfect solution. Watch the following video that shows how the A-DAC system works.

The original Forged lower will still be available, if you don’t want or need this feature. The Mountain logo has also been added to the left side of the receiver.

Rainier Arms Forged A-DAC Lower 3 

Prices will be slightly higher for this version, but unknown at this time. Will be sure to update you as soon as these are available at www.RainierArms.com.

Big thanks to my buddy Rich for making the trip to Rainier Arms and sharing these cell phone pics with me. You can follow his professional photography work at UWone77 on Facebook

NEW!! Noveske KX5 Now Available In 7.62 (5/8×24 TPI)

Posted on July 17th, 2014 by ar15news

The Noveske KX3, also commonly known as the Flaming Pig, has been an extremely popular muzzle device for a while now. The only downside was you couldn’t fit it underneath the Noveske NSR rail system or many other rail system. After I’m sure thousands of requests to make a slimmer version, Noveske unveiled the new KX5. The KX5 will now fit under most rail systems including the Noveske NSR. At first they KX5 was only available in 5.56 but we knew the 7.62 version was coming. Just yesterday Noveske added the 7.62 KX5′s to the website so you can now snag a few for yourself. If you’ve been waiting for a 7.62 KX5, be sure to jump on these now while they’re in-stock at www.ShopNoveske.com.

You’re looking at a sub-MOA rifle for sure that is pretty much just begging for an optic and bipod so it can get to work. No one will be surprised about the quality or accuracy of this rifle but what you might be surprised to know is that this rifle is being sold for just $1,875 (without optics, suppressor and bipod) which is an awesome price point. Check out the pics and details below, then head on over to 2VetsArms.com for ordering info.
