Rise Armament has a new Limited-Edition “Legacy Rifle” that is emblazoned with an American Flag cerakote. This new rifle also features the Folds of Honor logo because the sales from this rifle will benefit that foundation. If you are unfamiliar with the non-profit organization their mission is to provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. So with this new rifle, Rise Armament will be donating a portion of each Legacy Rifle sale to the foundation.

The Legacy Rifle is our third product we’ve developed to support veterans and their families through Folds of Honor. Our entire team is incredibly proud to continue our mission to make a lasting impact through the products we create. Folds of Honor is making a difference that will carry on for generations, and we’re humbled to be a part of that.
The MSRP of this rifle is currently set at $1,899. That price tag places the rifle at an understandable price-point once you consider the quality poured into it. If you disagree or maybe do not see the value, remember that this is going to support the children and spouses of our fallen service-members, and that is something we can all support.
