Our mission is to “fill in the gaps” of the care of the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community. We raise money via events and unique engagements; linking donors, industry, and SOF end users together. Funds generated from the events support Brain Injury Treatment not covered by Tri-care or the VA, SOF Gold Star Kids Camps, SOF Marriage counseling, and emergency needs as they arise. Once we have covered out internally funded initiatives, we donate like-run charitable organizations that support the Special Operations Community.

We are average American’s who care deeply about the Special Operations Community, and we created SOC-F to make a difference in the lives of the families of those who have given so much.

About American Defense MFG:
American Defense Manufacturing LLC was founded with an idea and a lot of hard work. What followed was the QD Auto-lock that has become the standard for QD mounting hardware. All ADM products are 100% designed and built in America.

All of our products are designed by shooters with one goal in mind – quality.

Moving forward, we have evolved into a premier manufacturer of AR-15’s that we consider “The Gentleman’s Work Gun.” With a high level of attention to detail, an eye for style, but a demand for performance, our UIC line of rifles are serious tools, for serious people.

About Deadbird Society:
Deadbird Society began in 2014 as a place for a few friends to come together online to share a love of the outdoors, gear, and all things Arc’teryx. It has grown rapidly as more and more people join to share their passion for the brand and the lifestyle. In two short years, Deadbird Society is about to surpass 3,000 members and has grown amongst the online gear communities as the preeminent place to not only learn more about Arc’teryx, but also buy, sell, and trade gear amongst like-minded individuals. Many Arc’teryx employees, from retail stores to corporate (both commercial and LEAF), have become members and often share product knowledge and insight, as well as offer a peek behind the curtain at upcoming product lines.

Deadbird Society is also deeply involved with Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F), and for the past two years has actively participated with various fundraising projects (patches, shirts, challenge coins, raffles, and auctions) to donate directly to SOC-F and support the families of our special operations community. DBS has partnered with Arc’teryx and numerous other companies to raffle and auction items… but more importantly, raise awareness for SOC-F and the work they do.

Radian Weapons Releases Limited Edition OD Green Raptor Charging Handles and Talon Safety Selectors, 50% of Sales to be Donated to the Special Operations Care Fund

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Dear Friends,

Today, November 11, is Veterans Day – a holiday that honors every man and woman who has answered the call to service in the American Armed Forces. We ask you to take a moment to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by those warriors and their families. Our security and prosperity as a nation depends upon those who serve, and as Americans we have a responsibility to not only express our gratitude, but to take meaningful action to ensure their needs are met even after the uniform comes off.

In honor of Veterans Day, Radian Weapons is releasing limited edition OD Green Raptor Charging Handles and Talon Safety Selectors, from which 50% of sales will be donated to the Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F). 100% of the money raised will be used to address the needs of wounded and fallen special operations warriors and their families. This is the first initiative Radian has undertaken to support our warfighters, but certainly not the last.

To our veterans, today we say thank you.

Sincerely,

Joshua Underwood
CEO

The Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, 100% volunteer, charitable organization that raises funds for the families of Special Operations warriors who have been wounded or killed.

AXTS Rebrands To Radian

Monday, November 7th, 2016

You might know AXTS from their charging handles. However, they not only make accessories, but full carbines as well. 


Earlier today, they officially announced their name change to Radian. However, I want to be clear, there has been no change in corporate ownership, and no additional changes to their team.

In an effort to better align the brand with their ever-evolving products, AXTS Weapons Systems has launched their new name – Radian Weapons.

AXTS has gained popularity and acclaim with its ambidextrous Raptor charging handle, and with the recent release of its sub-MOA rifle, the MI-T556 (now called the Radian Model 1). The new name was designed to distinguish them as a leader in the production of high-end, evolved weapons systems.

“We are more than an accessories company, and Radian helps us tell that story,” said Radian Weapons’ CEO, Joshua Underwood. “Continuous innovation and a hard driving work ethic are the core values we live by and have been the foundation for AXTS Weapons Systems. Radian Weapons will continue to build on this foundation, ful?lling our passion to bring the best performing products to our customers. A relentless pursuit of perfection in product design and world class manufacturing will be the standard of Radian Weapons.”

To accompany the launch of the new brand, Radian released a teaser video to showcase its new style set to the tune of its original manufacturing process. They are also giving away a Radian Model 1 Ri?e paired with a Leupold Mark 6 3-18x44mm optic to celebrate the brand launch. For more information on Radian, the rebrand, and the giveaway, visit www.radianweapons.com.

Springfield Armory Introduces The Saint Rifle

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

For some time, rumors swirled over a new product coming from Springfield Armory. It’s here now, and to be honest, I’m kind of surprised. The Black Rifle business wasn’t something I expected SA to get into.

Manufactured in their Geneseo, IL, factory, the Saint is the first rifle in their AR lineup. Relying on Bravo Company furniture, it’s a mid-gas carbine with a 16″ barrel.

Here are a couple of shots to give you a feel for the Saint, which will retail at $899.

Rare Sighting Of A Daniel Defense GL/SSC RIS II

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

This is one of the most rare Daniel Defense RIS II Rails, the GL/SSC. This stands for Grenade Launcher, Sound Suppressor Capable. It’s slightly shorter than the M4A1 and was designed around a 12.5″ barrel. Only 125 were made. 100 went to SOCOM and 25 sold commercially. So if you have one of these, you own a unicorn.

Colt Introduces the Colt Combat Unit Carbine Featuring Mid-Length Gas System

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

We recently gave you a sneak peek of the new Colt Combat Unit™ Carbine. This is Colt’s official release.

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (October 19, 2016) – The Colt M4 continues to be the platform of choice amongst Military, Law Enforcement, and firearms enthusiasts alike. Now Colt is offering yet another option for enthusiasts looking for that robust and well-fielded platform – the Colt Combat UnitTM carbine, featuring Colt’s new mid-length gas system.
The Colt Combat UnitTM carbine offers many of the features you love about the Colt M4 platform, but now Colt is introducing its first production mid-length gas system. “Producing a mid-length gas system was the logical next-step for us, and it’s long overdue,” said Justin Baldini, Director of Product Marketing for Colt. “Shooters will find that by moving the gas block closer to the muzzle as this mid-length gas system does, the felt recoil is more constant with what is fielded by our troops carrying a 14.5” barrel M4.”

The Colt Combat UnitTM is a team of Sponsored Shooters and Product Advisors that Colt has worked closely with to develop the Colt Combat UnitTM line of firearms that are tailored to the needs of today’s more savvy Operators, Law Enforcement, and firearms enthusiasts. “When we decided to put together the Colt Combat UnitTM team, we sought out the upper echelon of the world of elite operator training. These are all former Special Forces trainers who are helping us understand what the folks in the field want from their firearms, which has been proven with the success of the Colt Combat UnitTM Rail Gun®.”

The Colt Combat UnitTM carbine was developed with the help of legendary trainers Mike Pannone, Ken Hackathorn, and Daryl Holland. It features a Magpul® SL® buttstock and pistol grip as well as a MOE® trigger guard. The carbine is the first to feature Colt’s new mid-length gas system. It has a low profile gas block which allows for the use of its M-LOK® capable Centurion CMR free floated forend. The Colt Combat UnitTM carbine (SKU – LE6960-CCU) has an MSRP of $1,299 and is available exclusively from TALO Distributors.
