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.

Brownells BVL-530 Flashlight On Sale Today Only

Posted on July 14th, 2014 by ar15news

I’ve been handling one of the new Brownells BVL-530 flashlights for some time now and have been very pleased with it so far. It has a great size at just 5.5 inches long and boasts a 530 lumen output. It also has a removable pocket clip and lanyard ring. The battery compartment is double o-ring sealed and the light end has a large o-ring as well making it waterproof. This light is already a great bargain at its usual price of just $79.95 but today only they are selling them for $59.95. If you’re looking for a nice light that won’t break the bank, check out the BVL-530 info below, then head on over to www.Brownells.com.

The compact, amazingly powerful BVL530 is the light to have when you need emergency or supplemental lighting. At less than 5-1/2″ long, it’s small enough to go with you everywhere, so you’ll have it whenever you need it. Don’t be deceived by the size – the BVL530 delivers power that belies its small stature. An ultra-reliable, shockproof, CREE® XM-L2 LED emitter gives an astonishing 530 lumens maximum output that will illuminate the darkest corners. The Low (175 lumen) mode is brighter than “high” mode on a lot of other lights, and there’s a power-saving Ultra-Low (13 lumen) mode, too. High mode can be set to steady-on or strobe. Change modes by hitting a simple sequence of “clicks” on the sealed rubber tailcap switch.

All this power sticks around, too: you get up to 2.5 hours continuous output in High mode, and an amazing 9 hours in Low.

The rugged, machined aluminum body is 1” wide, so it’ll fit a lot of popular gun mounts, and O-ring sealed to make it waterproof. It’s topped with a stainless steel “strike” bezel for emergency self-defense. The light runs on two readily available CR-123A lithium batteries (not included) because so many law enforcement, military, and civilian shooters already have devices that use those.

Includes accessories to help you customize your BVL530 to your needs: a spring-steel pocket clip and a free-spinning lanyard loop that rotates a full 360° so the lanyard (also included) won’t get tangled. There’s a silicone rubber ring that slides over the body to serve as a finger stop when employing the popular “syringe” grip technique. All of these items are easily installed and removed as you need them.
