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

NEW!! James Madison Tactical Gen 2 Polymer/Composite Lower

Posted on July 7th, 2014 by ar15news

James Madison Tactical has made a great name for themselves in the 80% Polymer/Composite AR Lower market by making what I would say is the best 80% Polymer / Composite lower out there. They went to great lengths to strengthen the necessary areas that have been failure points on other polymer lowers in the past but the material itself also makes a huge different. The guys at JMT have spent most of their career manufacturing amazing $1,000,000 kit Jet planes called the ViperJet that you can build at home. They then took their expertise in AERO Space polymers that are strong enough to be used in airplanes and used that same material to build a high quality, reinforced AR15 80% lower. The Gen 1 lowers were fantastic but now JMT has upped their game with the Gen 2 lower adding lots of enhancements.

Some of the enhancements are to further strengthen the design but a couple are cosmetic and they look awesome. One such upgrade is the webbing pattern on the magwell that is reminiscent of the PMAG design. The other is they removed the large “JMT” logo from the side of the magwell and replaced it with a much smaller logo on the Pivot Pin Spring Housing.  Oh yeah, the machining jig you need to complete the lower comes FREE with the purchase every lower and the price is just $99.95 each. Take a few minutes to read the official press release below and check out the pics of the new lower. Purchase links are at the bottom.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————-

James Madison Tactical (JMT) introduces the superior Gen 2 polymer/composite fiber
lower receiver for the AR-15 platform.

James Madison Tactical, llc introduces our superior Gen 2 Polymer / Composite AR-15 lower receiver. JMT has made the best even better, known for their high quality and rugged 80% receiver. As we know JMT has incorporated new material technology and manufacturing processes for enhanced durability, strength and reliability but we have added a few more upgrades making it the best Polymer / Composite lower on the market today.

JMT Polymer Lower Gen2 1

GEN 2 Enhancements:

1. Extended box sections on upper fire control pocket.
2. Box section on upper top left of magazine well.
3. Extended bolt release pin posts.
4. Magazine webbed pattern.
5. New GEN 2 logo placement.

The JMT 80% lower also comes with a specially designed 3-piece machining jig with every order. This allows the user to machine the JMT 80% polymer/composite fiber lower receiver with ease and precision using simple tools.

The first thing users will notice is the JMT 80% lower receiver looks beefed up from the outside and rightly so. JMT has managed to add even more enhancements to the already strong making it even stronger. JMT also offers 3 popular colors (Black, FDE and ODG).

JMT Polymer Lower Gen2 3

You can purchase the new Gen 2 JMT 80% lowers directly from JamesMadisonTactical.com or from many of your usual favorite retailers such as RainierArms.com, etc.

Some of the most popular items we’ve ever posted about on AR15NEWS.com have been the Tactical Walls concealment products. When we first started talking about them they were just starting out and had very few options. After listening to input from their customers they started adding different size wall inserts, concealment shelves, different covers for the wall inserts and options such as magnetic mounting systems and magnetic locking mechanisms. Now they continue to grow and are adding even more size and concealment option. Their latest is the intermediate size for the Concealment Mirrors called the 1420M bundle.

They new 1420M bundle combines two of their 1410 wall inserts behind a slightly larger 1420M Lockable Concealment Mirror creating a nice new intermediate size. The 1420M Concealment Mirror bundle is available in 6 different finishes so you can best match it to your home interior design. To me this is one of their best product updates yet. This mirror slides to the side which is awesome because you don’t have to worry about mounting it too close to the ceiling and gives you much more space to conceal more items. I personally have one of the 1410M bundles that I still have not had time to install but I can definitely tell you I was very surprised with the high level of quality they offer. If you’re looking for a secure way to store Knives, Handguns, Ammo, Flashlights, Money, etc. in an easily accessible place, this is it! Check out the pics and details below. Use the code “ar15news” to save 7% off all products on www.TacticalWalls.com from now through the end of June 2014.

620 Tactical Walls 1420M Concealment Cover Insert 1 copy

The 1420M Bundle is the perfect addition to your home defense solution. It provides a convenient and quickly accessible storage space that can be easily hidden from view. Nobody will know it is there, but you will have peace of mind knowing that everything you need in an emergency is well within reach. This hidden wall storage space can be used for any variety of items including handguns, ammunition, tasers, flashlights, or anything you want to hide from view but still have quick access to.

The concealment cover included in this bundle is the perfection companion to a Tactical Wall Insert. It was designed to be inconspicuous while still providing a means to access the goods behind it. When closed, it is impossible to tell that it is anything other than a normal mirror. To open, simply slide it to the side! The drawer slides provide a smooth open and closing.

The cover comes with a magnetic lock. The locking mechanism is completely inside the cover, so nobody can see that it is there. To open, you simply need to pass your magnetic key over the surface of the frame near the lock and it will click open. This design insures that nobody will be aware that your cover is anything but a standard framed mirror.

The construction of the mirror is robust. Mirror are backed with a security panel to prevent access into your wall insert, and they are encased in a full frame for added rigidity and security. The magnetic locking mechanism is sturdy and well tested and protects your cover from being opened without a key.

Installation is as easy as counting to three. First, after you’ve decided where to put it, you can hang the included instruction sheet on the wall and use it as a template to cut around. Second, you will mount the cover. Third, you will slide the inserts into the hole and the 1-inch lip of the insert will hide any irregular edges from your cuts.

After installing, you can add any hooks, magnets, or whatever else you can think of to make your insert right for you before you deck it out with your goods. Also our velcro backing allows you to put patches, storage pouches, etc., right onto the inside of your insert. It makes for added versatility and customization of your Tactical Wall.

NEW!! ALG Defense EMR Rail with M-LOK

Posted on June 13th, 2014 by ar15news

ALG Defense, sister company to Geissele Automatics, has just introduced a new model of their awesome EMR (Ergonomic Modular Rail) which now features the M-LOK mounting system. M-LOK is the new Magpul backed mounting system which is quickly gaining a lot of support from some big name manufacturers such as Geissele and now ALG Defense. Having ALG Defense support M-LOK is huge because they bring a “bang for your buck” component that most other manufacturers can’t. The new EMR M-LOK rails will start at just $100 and no, that’s not a typo. 

620 ALG Defense EMR M-LOK Rail 4

The EMR M-LOK will be offered in 10″, 12″ and 13″ lengths just like the standard EMR but now weighs less and costs less. As you’ll notice in the picture below, there are a ton of possible mounting configurations for the M-LOK rail sections and accessories. In keeping with the original EMR lightweight modular design, even the top 12 o’clock area is M-LOK so you can put rail sections where you need them for sights and accessories and not where you don’t. One thing you will want to keep in mind when ordering your rail is that the EMR M-LOK does not come with any M-LOK rail sections. All you need to do is think through the setup you plan on running and buy the needed rail sections.

You can find more information and purchase the ALG Defense EMR M-LOK rails at www.ALGDefense.com. M-LOK accessory rails are listed at the bottom of that same page.
