Oklahoma based 2 Vets Arms Co, LLC has only been in business for a short time. It is a female service-connected disabled veteran owned business (SDVOB) operated by Army veteran husband and wife team of Dean and Amber Brandly. Dean is a combat Infantryman who served as a Sniper/Sniper Team Leader and Joint Fires Observer during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Amber also served as an Army Intelligence Analyst during Operation Iraqi Freedom. These are our kind of people.
The flagship weapons platform offered by 2 Vets Arms Co is a 6.8 SPC II rifle based on a custom design by Dean Brandly, and based upon his experience as a Ranger Qualified former Army Scout Sniper Team Leader.
The 6.8 SPC (6.8x43mm) was initially developed by the United States Army Marksmanship Unit’s MSG Steve Holland and Chris Murray who were tasked by JSOC and the 5th Special Forces Group in 2001 to make a caliber that offers superior downrange lethality over the 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington in an AR pattern service rifle with minimal loss of magazine capacity and a negligible increase in recoil.
In their match-grade, Spec II chambered 16″, 18″, 20″ barrels. The 6.8 SPC is capable of pushing a .277 caliber, 85gr bullet to over 2900 FPS. 110gr bullets easily achieve 2500 FPS with factory-loaded ammunition. Appropriate hand loading can achieve even higher velocities and enable the use of heavier projectiles up to 130 grains, which dramatically improves terminal ballistics over a 5.56 Nato/.223 Remington at long range.
2 Vets Arms Company is proudly working with Sports South LLC, a national firearms distributor with a retailer network of more than 5000 firearms retailers across the country. The custom designed 6.8 SPC II weapon system, as well as .300 Blackout and standard 5.56 models will reach dealer shelves throughout the country soon.
As a service-connected disable veteran owned business, Dean and Amber understand how important it is to support our honored military veterans. In order to do their part, 2 Vets Arms Company has pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds from every rifle sale to GallantFew.org – A Revolutionary Veteran Support Network, and American Women Veterans.
