The Legacy American Flag AR-15 is True Purple, White and Blue
There is absolutely no shortage of AR-15 modern sport rifles available today. The category is so popular that it is difficult to find some models in stock. More importantly, the AR-15 is still the best-selling “black weapon”. Now a new special edition of RISE Armament has added patriotic “red, white and blue” to the mix – and could be as American as apple pie.
Introduction of the RISE Legacy American Flag AR-15; A modern sporting rifle that offers solid performance to shooters while emphasizing the justice of its cause. It combines the very best in accuracy, reliability and speed – and it comes in a lightweight package that simply screams, “God bless America.”
Oklahoma-based Rise Armament isn’t the only company producing a flag-themed AR, but simply put, this one could be the best to honor Old Glory. The color scheme is clean, just slightly subdued, but elegant, and captures the spirit of what the flag stands for.
The RISE legacy is chambered .223 Wylde, which is also unique. This hybrid rifle chamber can make it possible to shoot both .223 and 5.56×45 ammunition, although the two calibers are actually not interchangeable. However, the fact that RISE includes this means that shooters can have the versatility to enjoy the exceptional accuracy of the .223 Remington, but also the increased speed and downward power of the 5.56×45 NATO round. Usually it is only possible to shoot a .223 Remington from a 5.56 chamber, but you don’t want to do the opposite as there is a risk of catastrophic gun failure.
So not only does this patriotic rifle look amazing, but it also has the American capacity for choices and options!
100 percent American Made
Made entirely by RISE in Oklahoma, the Legacy Rifle features a 416R stainless steel barrel with its own fluting for both accuracy and weight reduction, while the aluminum handguard has 32 MLOK connection points and a Picatinny head rail system for countless customization options and ergonomically designed for more comfort.
In addition, the Patriot Trigger in the special edition of the rifle promises improved precision shooting and faster follow-up shots. The Legacy rifle also features the incredibly effective RA-701 compensator, a heavy-duty bolt carrier group, and a Magpul CTR carbine. Each rifle comes with a magazine and a RISE Armament Patriot rifle case.
Support a good cause
A portion of every rifle sold goes to Folds of Honor, an organization that provides educational grants to children and spouses of those killed in combat or the disabled.
“To say we are proud to help and donate Folds of Honor is an understatement,” said Matt Torres, President of RISE Armament. “Veteran families are often overlooked, which is a real shame. Our troops and their families have shown tremendous courage and so many sacrifices. It is our duty as Americans, as patriots, to care for them and to honor what they have done for all of us. “
Unfortunately, at press time, the RISE Legacy American Flag AR-15 has now been reordered for six months, but those who wait have good things.
