While it probably won’t please socially conscious individuals like Colin Kaepernick to hear this, some manufacturers of consumer goods see benefits and actual customer demand for products featuring flags and other patriotic images.
Along those lines, Ruger has just announced their new Flag Series line of Cerakoted and dipped pistols and long guns.
So please, don’t tell anyone at brands like Nike, Levi’s, or the NFL that you can now get an AR-556 MPR emblazoned with Old Glory or — heaven forbid — a Ruger Precision Rifle with a Texas Lone Star dip.
There’s no telling how severe their reactions might be and we wouldn’t want to be responsible for the consequences.
Here’s Ruger’s press release . . .
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to announce its new Flag Series line of firearms. Arriving just in time to celebrate the independence of our nation, these attractive firearms boast painted flag Cerakote® and flag camo dipped finishes.
The first four offerings in this new series feature attractive American Flag finishes and are built on the following platforms: AR-556® MPR, Ruger Precision® Rimfire and PC Carbine™ rifles, as well as the AR-556 Pistol. Additional distributor exclusive models featuring state flag Cerakote finishes are also available. These models include the SR22® pistol with North Carolina state flag Cerakote finish, SR22 pistol with Arizona state flag Cerakote finish and Ruger Precision Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor with a Texas state flag camo dip.
“We are very excited about the introduction of the Flag Series,” said Shawn Leska, Ruger Vice President of Sales. “This new lineup of firearms is our most patriotic yet and we hope our customers will feel a sense of pride owning a pistol or rifle from this American-made series.”
