This rifle is equipped with a 14.5″ Rainier Arms .300 Upper with an OSS Bannar Flash Hiding Muzzle Brake mated to an AAC lower. The rifle was dipped in ODG’s Lupus pattern and outfitted with a VTAC Sling.
Just yesterday the blogosphere was all atwitter with news that the snappiest dresser in the firearms industry, Mike Mers was no longer with Remington brand AAC. But then, earlier today, Mers, known for his signature argyle sweater vest, posted this statement to Facebook.
D’oh….sometimes it’s best to wait until the dust settles on employment issues.
Congrats to Mers for his new role with AAC.
If you’ve been waiting for the big SHOT Show, industry insider buzz, I’d say this is it.
We recently informed you that Advanced Armament Corp founder and his associate Lynsey Thompson and won their two-year-long court battle with AAC’s new owners Remington ask Freedom Group aka FGI. Now, we have full access to Judge Katherine Forrest’s opinion. It’s quite the read and she didn’t pull any punches in reaching her verdict or explaining it.
Interestingly, the judge issued the document on Brittingham’s 40th birthday. Talk about a birthday present. Based on conversations with him the judgement could be in excess of $14 Million, but considering the amount he was still owed couple with what he has paid out in legal fees and personal pain, I’d say that it isn’t outrageous. It also lifts any non-compete restrictions, so for Kevin Brittingham, it’s “game on!”
Read it all for yourself by downloading it here: Brittingham Opinion & Order.
Based on this screenshot we received a little while ago it appears that former Advanced Armament Corp front man Kevin Brittingham has prevailed in his lawsuit against Freedom Group who purchased AAC from him in late 2009. Brittingham’s employment with AAC was terminated two years ago, in December 2011 after FGI said that he had violated company policy by bringing personally owned firearms to work. He has maintained that the termination was a ploy by FGI to avoid paying him monies owed.
Tried earlier this year as Random Ventures Inc. et. al v. Advanced Armament Corp LLC et. al, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 12-06792, the suit contains 14 claims and Brittingham wins all of them including his demand for millions of dollars he says are owed by Freedom Group (over 10 Million plus interest). Additionally, this ruling negates his noncompete clause.
Foxnews online has additional info on the case but has not been updated on this judgement from the court.

Weapon Outfitters has the QD Brake Shield for AAC Mounts by Simplistic Shooting Solutions in stock. If you’re running an SBR with a brake, the gun can be LOUD. Some like it that way, but not everyone at the range is going to appreciate your particular taste in noise. Use the QD Brake Shield when you don’t have a suppressor in place and it will direct the gases and noise forward, away from the shooter.
According to Weapon Outfitters, this mount is compatible with AAC suppressor mounts for 5.56, and 7.62/6.8/300 BLK. If your mount fits the M4-1000, M4-2000, 762-SD, or 762-SDN-6, then this device will fit your mount.
Here is AAC’s taking a couple of shots with the Honey Badger. If this Honey Badger Pr0n, think of it as the gun equivalent to the “money shot.”
AAC debuted the Honey Badger at AUSA. It was designed as a replacement for the venerable MP5 which will soon see its 50th birthday. However, the Honey Badger offers a couple of advantages. First, it is chambered for the .300 blackout cartridge. This means the weapon can fore both super and subsonic ammo. Additionally, it is based on the Stoner design which requires little transition from the M4.
Here you can see the Honey Badger’ two lengths of hand guards.
