There are many types of rifles, but none are more popular than the AR platform — the AR-15 and, to a lesser extent, the AR-10 both come to mind. The AR-15 is “America’s rifle,” and for good reason. Whether used for hunting or home-defense or just time at the range, it’s both accurate and reliable. Perhaps more than anything else, it’s easy to modify and customize. Tailoring something to your own specs helps improve your comfort, and a rifle is no different.
At RISE Armament, we started with the soul of a rifle: The trigger. But we didn’t stop there. Once our engineers created the shooting industry’s top-performing trigger, we began designing and building complete rifles — high-performance, expertly engineered, precision-crafted, American-made rifles. From bolt carrier groups to handguards, we do it all. Now we have a lineup of rifles that live up to the RISE name, which is why they also come with our lifetime warranty.
We currently offer a number of high-quality AR-10 and AR-15 rifles. Those offerings include the 1121XR and the Watchman, as well as the Patriot and Legacy rifles that both benefit Folds of Honor. Here’s a closer look at our rifles.
RISE 1121XR Precision Rifle
We heard shooters wanted more from a heavy-caliber gas rifle, so we gave it to them. The 1121XR features the big game knock-down power and also extended-range accuracy of the finest large-caliber bolt actions. But it doesn’t stop there. It combines all of that with the lighter weight, lower recoil, minimal muzzle bounce, and quickness of a gas gun. You asked for it. Now, come and get it. As far as calibers go, the 1121XR is available in the ultra-efficient 6.5 Creedmoor or .308. Either way, the rifle takes the AR-10 to new heights.
We designed the RISE Watchman with input from professionals across America. Those pros include SWAT team members, police, military snipers, and more. Chambered in .223 Wylde, the Watchman provides unmatched performance and affordability. The Watchman is accurate and dependable with match-grade components, including a 416R stainless steel barrel with a mid-length gas system. This AR-15 performs right out of the box.
RISE Patriot Rifle
Next in our lineup is the top-of-the-line Patriot rifle. However, these rifles aren’t available for purchase. Folds of Honor auctioned off 13 Patriot rifles at various special fundraiser events throughout the U.S. Boasting the best in quality and design, the Patriot rifle is fast, strong, and highly accurate. To honor the veterans whose families it benefits, it features a Patriotic motif. RISE custom Cerakoted the guns, making each one a unique piece of art. Details include the Folds of Honor logo and tagline — “Honoring Their Sacrifice. Educating Their Legacy” — and also a striking American flag pistol grip.
RISE Legacy Rifle
Our Legacy rifle also benefits Folds of Honor. However, unlike the Patriot rifle, you can purchase the Legacy rifle on a limited basis. We designed the Legacy rifle as a special-edition version of our well-known RA-315 C Series. It is super accurate, dependable, and fast; and all that comes in a lightweight, patriotic package. It’s easy to notice the red, white, and blue U.S. flag design in durable Cerakote — a fitting tribute to our vets.
