Act Now On Franklin Armory’s Title 1

Thursday, June 18th, 2020

Minden, NV, June 18, 2020 – Title 1TM Update: Take action NOW!

The Franklin Armory® Title 1TM was created for our friends in California who wish to have a full featured firearm option for legal and compliant use in the state as it is not a pistol, rifle, or a shotgun. More importantly, it is NOT an assault weapon!

You have until midnight, June 30th 2020, to get your deposit on the Franklin Armory® Title 1TM for only $5!

We are here to stand up and fight alongside you against this overreach of your second amendment rights in California!

Franklin Armory® has filed suit, among other things, to have the California DOJ do their job and process the transfers of Title 1. Franklin Armory®, along with the CRPA, have also been working together to facilitate the individuals’ ability to be represented as well…

Franklin Armory® has donated the initial $100,000 in financing for a Mass Action lawsuit in which each customer that has made a deposit can likely participate in a lawsuit against the California DOJ as a plaintiff seeking to prevent their continued administrative barriers.

I should point out that Franklin Armory® and CRPA are already suing the State for damages in state court. This case being announced today is a wholly separate action for you, the consumer. Besides donating the initial funding, Franklin Armory® will not be managing the mass action case… You will be contacted via email by Michell & Associates, P.C. for further instructions regarding the mass action case.

Franklin Armory® has repeatedly attempted to reach out to the California DOJ to resolve this issue, but the California DOJ has stalled and promoted a backdoor ban on the Title 1TM by expanding the definition of “assault weapon” and permitting only those Title 1TM firearms possessed before June 30th, 2020 to be registered – All the while avoiding their administrative duty to add the drop down menu to enable the legal transfer of these firearms in the DROS system…

It’s doesn’t take a genius to figure out that this inaction is likely deliberate and intentional… The Title 1TM may be lawfully sold in California, but is being blocked from sale due to actions taken solely by the California DOJ!

Now is the time to act…

Thursday, June 4th, 2020

WESTFIELD, Massachusetts – June 4, 2020 – From the diminutive power of the Rascals, to the potential offered by the new Precision Series, Savage Arms knows rimfire. Now Savage is redefining rimfire style with Minimalist—a distinctly different stock design for the Mark II, 93 and 93R17 rifles.

is pleased to introduce Minimalist, a distinctly different take on the classic rimfire design. Minimalist combines a laminate stock for lightweight strength with several additional features for excellent usability in the field. With its button rifled barrel and user-adjustable AccuTrigger, the bolt-action Minimalist delivers Savage accuracy. Minimalist rifles are offered in 22 LR, 22 WMR, and 17 HMR.

“Minimalist takes Savage rimfire in a new direction,” said Beth Shimanski, Director of Marketing for Savage. “The laminated stocks are ideal for older youth and adult shooters, yet the rifle weighs only 5.68 pounds.

Above Minimalist’s carbon steel action, a Weaver-style base is pre-installed. Make the most of cost-effective rimfire rounds by topping these bolt-actions with a scope or red-dot and the rifle will be ready for the range.

Montana Outdoor Group Announces Shutdown of Montana Rifle Company

Thursday, March 19th, 2020

The Montana Outdoor Group’s subsidiary “Montana Rifle Company” will seek fiscal restructuring.

Kalispell, Montana (March 2020) – Montana Outdoor Group, a private investor group, acquired Montana Rifle Company in early 2019, has announced its immediate closure pending fiscal restructuring.

“While sales of our popular calibers have been outstanding, production levels have not risen to a profitable level to continue, without additional investments,” CEO Calvin Bontrager explained. “New equipment would be required to reach a service level demanded by our dealers and conservation groups.”
