    “We are very proud to have been selected by Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office and are confident our rifle platform will exceed their performance expectations.” Said William Phebus, Director of Sales. “American Defense is not just a firearm assembler, but a full-service, manufacturing facility, where we can control quality and maintain strict tolerances through all manufactured parts that result in superior performance and reliability. This, and our passion for perfection, is what we believe sets us apart from other firearm brands”.

    American Defense Mfg is committed to supporting agencies beyond the sale by providing immediate, temporary replacement of any ADM rifle used in a critical incident and taken out of service for evidentiary purposes. American Defense Mfg’s “Ready Reserve” Program provides immediate, temporary replacement of any ADM rifle that is destroyed in the line of duty in order to reduce department disruption and maintain 100% stock in the departments armory.
