PRIME Club: Guaranteed Ammunition at a Fixed Price

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 10.23.30 AM

Over the last few years, ammunition prices have been insane. Where 5.56 NATO used to be dirt cheap just a few short years back, prices went through the roof and have only recently started to come back to reality. While .22lr remains relatively inexpensive, finding it is as difficult as finding a gun rights advocate married to a Mom demanding action (for gun sense in America). Meanwhile, here’s an interesting new service that has been setup to get you as much ammunition as you can use at a guaranteed price and guaranteed quantity . . .

Adams Arms Drops Prices on Piston Rifles

P1330579

Adams Arms makes some pretty cool rifles. We’ve reviewed their guns in the past and found them to be pretty awesome — in fact, the biggest gripe I had was the price. The guns are good, but they either needs some upgrades or a price drop to make them better. Adams seems to have come to the same conclusion as they’ve dropped their prices and continued to make improvements on their products. Press release after the jump . . .

SilencerCo Launching New Shotgun Silencer

NoCountry_502

The idea of a shotgun silencer isn’t anything particularly new — ever since No Country for Old Men came out a few years ago, people have been wanting to get their hands on such a device. Not many people, but people nonetheless. A couple companies have come out with their own version of a shotgun can, most notably Red Jacket Firearms as shown on one of their episodes. And every time someone mentions the idea to me, my response is always the same: why? I understand the George Mallory effect, but somehow I doubt that such a thing would be commercially viable. SilencerCo seems undaunted, and appears to have invited some people out to an event to show off their brand new shotgun silencer (our sources have already confirmed the product’s existence — there’s not really any doubt left at this point). The only question: will it sell? Make the jump for the press release.

Daniel Defense Announces Financing Plan to Goose Rifle Sales

02-088-15028-011_mk18_mil_spec_plus

It’s no secret that the modern sporting rifle market has come back down to earth following the post-Newtown panic. Anyone who’s visited their local gun store knows that inventory is plentiful and prices are back down to their previous levels. If not lower. And given the frenzied buying that sucked up every black rifle that producers could turn out last year, you’d expect that demand would take some time to catch up with the newly refreshed supply again. Hence, Daniel Defense has announced a new financing program for their retail customers, providing an added incentive to get that weapon of war you’ve been wanting. That’s right, you can now put the rifle of your dreams — up to $7500 — on a payment plan. Press release after the jump . . .
