“These rifles represent ArmaLite’s commitment to our customers and the shooting community as a whole,” said Walt Hasser, Vice President of Product Management. “Our goal was to make legendary ArmaLite quality available at a previously unattainable price and we met that goal. We’re excited to see new shooters and new ArmaLite customers have an economically viable avenue into the AR community.”
Tommy Thacker, President of ArmaLite, adds, “I am proud of what our product and engineering teams have been able to accomplish in a short period of time. The Defensive Sporting Rifles series is the first of many new products to come from ArmaLite.”
