Your “Assault Weapon” Is No Longer A Part Of The Second Amendment

Posted by Cody Carter

Feb 23, 2017 3:20:34 PM

   As of late in the afternoon of February 22nd, 2017, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Maryland’s 2013 Firearms Safety Act with a 10-4 panel. If you do not live in Maryland or you are not familiar with this act, it states that the Second Amendment does not protect your right to “weapons of war.” The term “weapons of war” has perked many ears and has raised even more tempers. A written statement from Judge Robert B. King was released saying, “We conclude, contrary to the now-vacated decision of our prior panel, that the banned assault weapons and large-capacity magazines are not protected by the Second Amendment.” There’s that term that you see in mainstream media frequently… “assault weapons.”

The New VooDoo Innovations Integral Direct Impingement Low Mass Carrier was designed to improve the Performance and Durability of a direct impingement carrier. The new Integral Carrier has an improved gas flow path with no impediments or shelves for carbon to deposit and build on which removes the potential for gas obstruction to seize the operation of the rifle. The VDI Integral DI Carrier eliminates the potential for carrier key separation due to carrier key screws stripping, fracturing, or becoming un-staked. This carrier is finished with our proprietary LifeCoat coatings to increase Lubricity and Surface Hardness. The 20% reduction in carrier weight decreases the reciprocating mass reducing felt recoil and increasing the Tune-Ability of the rifle for any application. All of our carriers are Full-Auto Rated, they’re made in the USA and come with a Life-Time Warranty.

Shooting Team Member Kurt Gruber Reviews the Adams Arms C.O.R. Rifle and its Application in Competitive Shooting

Posted by Kurt Gruber

From the bays of Rio Salado to the meadows of the Peacemaker National Training Center, and in a thousand spots in between, men and women can be found coming together weekly to test their skill; not with one gun, but with three.  3 Gun has become the fastest growing of the shooting sports in recent years.  There are many reasons for this, from reality TV shows such as Top Shot bringing shooting to mainstream America, 3 Gun Nation introducing the sport to TV audiences on a major network, to merely the challenge of demonstrating proficiency and excelling with three drastically different firearms as opposed to one.  Regardless of the reasons, this amazing growth has also created a huge market for competition specific rifles, pistols, and shotguns. 

It is with this market in mind that Adams Arms has released the new Competition Optic Ready, or C.O.R., rifle.  This new product demonstrates Adams Arms dedication not only to the shooting sports, but also to innovative design for the market a whole.  That innovation has become necessary as the 3 Gun Nation style of stage design, which seems to be focused equally on production and entertainment value and difficulty and marksmanship.  This newer style of stage design presents not only the opportunity but also really the need for a different profile of rifle to excel.
