Adams Arms specializes in AR platforms fitted with a short-stroke piston system designed to run reliably and keep the rifle's action clean. The new small-frame .308 shares a 50 percent parts commonality with the company's 5.56 AR-15 platforms. This makes for a trim rifle that weighs in at less than 8-pounds. Four models will be available with suggested retail prices ranging from around $1329 to $2999.
This year marks an important development for fans of the Bond Arms double-barrel pistol that live in California. The company is on its way to launching a model specifically designed to meet the requirements of the state’s DOJ list of approved handgun and California-specific regulations. The CA Approved models will have a special bear-logo grip to help identify them as compliant models. The first pistols to ship will have barrels fixed into the frame so that they cannot be removed or exchanged. Down the road the company will offer interchangeable barrel models especially designed to only accept California-compliant barrel options.

The American-based Inland Manufacturing, with its roots firmly planted in Dayton, Ohio, is a private entity that is now producing replicas of the M1 Carbine and M1A1 Paratrooper models that were built by the original Inland Division of General Motors from 1941 to 1945. The M1 replica is modeled after the last production model that Inland manufactured in 1945.
