Century Arms to Continue US PALM Brand and Product Line

Saturday, September 8th, 2018

Delray Beach, Fla. – (September 10, 2018) – Century Arms, North America’s premier AK manufacturer, has announced the continuance of the well-known US PALM brand and will be showcasing the brand’s legacy product line at SHOT Show 2019. In cooperation with original founder and product designers, and with the help of Century Arms, US PALM will proceed with the innovative product development that it is known for.

“In this area of brand acquisitions and company mergers, there are some brands and products that need to be kept alive and untainted, US PALM is a perfect example,” said Chip Hunnicutt, Century’s Director of Marketing. “As a leading seller of AK rifles for nearly forty years, Century feels it is important to keep US PALM’s brand and level of craftsmanship in producing quality magazines and grips alive, so consumers won’t have to settle for imitations or knockoffs. Working with the original brand co-owners and designers, US PALM legacy magazines, instantly recognizable by their distinctive waffle and tread design, and US PALM grips favored for their exceptional ergonomics, will still be available under the original brand while staying true to their authentic vision.”

Century’s involvement will allow US PALM to launch a number of designs and prototypes that never made it to market. “We’re really excited that we were all able to make this happen and to see US PALM continue to deliver the highest quality AK accessories,” said Rob Anderson, the US PALM founder and co-owner. “Century’s significant history with the AK platform made them a logical fit for this effort and their energy regarding this project and insistence on sticking with our original vision has been impressive. The fact that we are heavily involved in this process and not simply being swallowed up by a massive corporate conglomerate was very important to us. We can’t wait to see where Century takes US PALM in the next chapter of its life.”

US PALM will be attending the Red Oktober shooting event, Oct 5th – 7th, at the Southern Utah Practical Shooting Range in St. George, Utah. Legacy US PALM products will be on display and the company’s founders will be on hand to meet and greet shooters during the match. “It’s important to us that our supporters and the shooting community at large know this is a direction we not only support, but are excited about,” said Brandon Finch, a US PALM co-owner. “Red Oktober has become an impressive gathering for AK enthusiasts and a logical place for us to close out the year and set the stage for US PALM’s new beginning.”

Century Arms plans to have an updated US PALM website in the coming months and to introduce the brand and its product line as part of the company’s brand portfolio at SHOT Show 2019. Follow US PALM now on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date on breaking news.

Eyes On: Gryphon EDC 3 Pack

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

us-palm-gryphoneyeson1

The Gryphon EDC has been one of US PALM’s most popular items for some time. They’re now on the 3RD iteration of the pack, with a number of changes and improvements to the Gryphon v2, and of course from the original. The Breach-Bang-Clear gang got a couple of Gryphon EDC 3s in a few days back, in anticipation of the Trails Found event happening now in the Dragoon Mountains of Arizona.

Among the most current changes US PALM’s “Tactical Jay and Bob” (Rob Anderson and Brandon Finch) have made:

  • Reinforced Access Points [RAP’s]: custom made Hypalon pre-slotted patches to allow for internal pocket access for wires [PTT], drink tubes, etc. to run inside the hollow shoulder straps and not fray at the openings. They have an agency that runs their radios and phones in the internal side pockets, with a power supply, and then run their PTT wires and switches between the pockets and then out the should strap.
  • Lined back of main pocket and admin pocket with loop fastener for a multitude of accessories
  • Updated the mesh back material
  • Changed the zipper pulls from gutted paracord to “Bump” cord.
  • The biggest change to the pack is apparently an overall “tightening up” of the design and a return to the original dimensions, as well as an eye to an upcoming hard-wired series of pouches that would tie a power source (like the Anker 20000 mAH) with a radio, phone, GPS or other piece of electronic equipment inside.

    The Gryphon EDC 3 is made in the USA. More in the coming weeks after we get the chance to work with it for a while.

    Basic specs:

  • Main and Admin Compartment
  • EDC Pocket, Multi-Function and Internal Sidewall Access Pockets
  • Back Panel Access
  • Hydration compatible
  • Spacer Mesh for breathability and comfort
  • Materials: 500d Cordura Nylon
  • Armor option (Threat Level Protection when armor added: Tested to NIJ-06 IIIA Standard)
  • Volume: Main Compartment: 25L (1,550 in^3) / Total Pack: Approx. 30L (1,850 in^3)
  • Weight: 2.6 lbs (41.6 oz) without armor / 4.1 lbs (65.9 oz) with XL IIIA Soft Armor Panel
  • You can find the full spec sheet online right here: uspalm.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/GryphonEDC3_Datasheet.pdf
