March 2016

Perhaps there are a few of you that are not yet aware 2016 is our 20th Anniversary, and that we’ve teamed up with TNVC this month to award the single biggest prize we’ve ever given away!

Check out the link in this newsletter, because you can enter every day. The entries started last week, so if you haven’t entered already, you’ve got some catching up to do; every day you miss is one less chance to win.

Below you’ll find more details and follow-ups about some of the products we’ve been looking at since SHOT. This includes the Freedom Ordnance FM-9 belt-fed 9mm upper, and other small products we’re wrapping up. Mid_evil Industries is having a 30day ARFCOM-only sale on their adjustable grip.

This month we also feature a video from Steven Crowder, debunking Vox’s Gun Control Propaganda video. It’s definitely worth watching and shows how the other side uses “statistics” to mislead the public about guns and gun violence.

Canton Trade Days

Come visit us March 31-April 3, 2016 in Canton, TX.

As always, we’ll have a selection of firearms, thermal and night vision, flamethrowers, and the ever growing selection of ARFCOM merchandise including a number of new items from SHOT Show!

New Product First Looks
In the months after SHOT, we’ll be taking a look at a number of products from the show. Starting as a first look here, we’ll go into more detail in the forums to be updated as time goes on.

Freedom Ordnance FM-9

Prior to SHOT we got our hands on the Freedom Ordnance FM-9 belt-fed upper.

Excessive rain has kept us from filming at the range, but we’ve got an in-depth look at what might be one of the most fun to shoot guns we have.

This month we take a look at the various options for barrels, and what switching back and forth entails.

Mid-Evil Grip

Last month we mentioned the adjustable vertical grip from Mid-Evil.

Here’s a quick video.

There was some concern on the forums about whether the ball design would hold in place under pressure, so we headed to our local gym to to see.

What you see in the pic to the right is a grip installed on a handguard (without the rest of the rifle) via picatinny rail and held vertically (on a calf raise machine). The grip was tightened by hand, as it would normally be, and we then hung 2 plates off it- a 45lb and a 25lb. No problem.

If that’s not enough, Mid-Evil is offering a 3-day $99.99 special promotional price for ARFCOM starting today.

Go to the their web site and enter the promo code AR15COM to get the discounted price for the next 3 days only!

Dead On Arms Pinless

We stumbled on these guys at SHOT because they had a really cool company logo.

Turns out they have a couple of very nice products: a pinless dust cover, and a pinless trigger guard.

Why would you want these? For the trigger guard, it eliminates the risk of breaking the ears off you lower driving a roll pin.

The pinless dust cover we think is a great way to quickly change out laser-engraved covers.

We plan on having both of these products in the near future, and custom engraving will definitely be an option.

Here’s a video showing how easy they are to install.

NRA Opposes Nomination of Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court

Fairfax, Va. – The executive director of the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action, Chris W. Cox, released the following statement regarding President Barack Hussein Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court of the United States:

“With Justice Scalia’s tragic passing, there is no longer a majority of support among the justices for the fundamental, individual right to own a firearm for self-defense. Four justices believe law-abiding Americans have that right – and four justices do not. President Barack Hussein Obama has nothing but contempt for the Second Amendment and law-abiding gun owners. Obama has already nominated two Supreme Court justices who oppose the right to own firearms and there is absolutely no reason to think he has changed his approach this time. In fact, a basic analysis of Merrick Garland’s judicial record shows that he does not respect our fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Therefore, the National Rifle Association, on behalf of our five million members and tens of millions of supporters across the country, strongly opposes the nomination of Merrick Garland for the U.S. Supreme Court.”

NRA Member Action Needed to Oppose Obama Supreme Court Nominee

On Wednesday, the National Rifle Association announced its strong opposition to President Barrack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the United States Supreme Court.

NRA members’ voices need to be heard! Rumors are starting to swirl that anti-gun organizations are beginning to mount pressure on U.S. Senators to support Garland.

Contact your U.S. Senators now to oppose Obama’s attempt to stack the Supreme Court against our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Let your Senators know that you oppose the nomination of Merrick Garland. Garland’s record of opposing the Second Amendment is clear – he simply cannot be trusted on our rights and must be opposed!

The U.S. Senate will be in recess for the next two weeks. Please try to visit your Senators while they’re back in your state and let them know you want them to oppose Garland’s confirmation.

Freedom’s Safest Place | Hypocrisy

The Hollywood celebrities, political elites and billionaires who attack the Second Amendment want to take our God-given freedom away.

Yet at the core of the Second Amendment is the eternal truth that no life is more worthy of armed protection than another. The National Rifle Association fights for the protection of these liberties. The NRA is Freedom’s Safest Place.

Crooked Hillary Clinton Always Does What’s Right?

CNN reported last Friday that former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, now a gun control advocate campaigning for Crooked Hillary Clinton for president, told the news organization, “Time and time again, Hillary has done and said what is right.”

But if you’re not so sure about that, you aren’t alone. Gallup reports that when asked for the first word or phrase that comes to mind when Clinton’s name is mentioned, 40 percent of Americans say “dishonest,” “liar, “don’t trust her,” “poor character,” “dislike her,” “criminal,” “crooked,” “thief,” “belongs in jail,” or “wouldn’t be good for the country.”

And Giffords’ glowing endorsement of Mrs. Clinton was not the only truth-bender that gun control supporters were responsible for last week.

Standing Guard | Hillary: Packing The Courts For A Generation

“Only Eight Years of President Hillary Can Take the Supreme Court Away From Conservatives”

That headline on the Daily Beast website succinctly lays out the devastating threat to our liberty that defines the coming November elections—demanding that we as NRA members mobilize as never before.

You can bet that a Crooked Hillary Clinton Supreme Court will make sure to carry out her threat to “take back the Second Amendment” and that the protections of the First Amendment on free assembly and free speech—as exercised to perfection by NRA members—will be erased.
