Result of the Adams Arms Public Auction– All Good

After the announcement that Adams Arms would be up for public auction, many wondered what the future would hold for the company and its customers. Specifically, if the “turn-key” operation aspect of the auction would mean the company could carry on as before and manufacture guns and accessories, while still upholding the advertised warranty.

The auction took place today, and the results appear to be in favor of the company, its employees, and its customers (past and future); so it's a win-win-win.

In a press release, the company stated:

Adams Arms LLC Announces Asset Sale     

April 30, 2019

On Tuesday, April 30th, 2019, Adams Arms LLC's assets were publicly auctioned at its facility in Pasco County, Florida, following maturity of its secured loans. The company’s senior secured creditors were the high bidder and are in the process of transferring these assets into a new company, Adams Arms Holdings, LLC (“AA Holdings”). Adams Arms, LLC, after the successful transfer of assets, will be closed.

It was announced and advertised at the beginning of April that Adams Arms LLC’s assets would be auctioned as a turn-key operation, including all tangible and intangible assets. AA Holdings will continue the Adams Arms brand. AA Holdings will fulfill all customer orders and honor all Adams Arms life-time product warranties.

AA Holdings will operate with greater strength and leadership than ever before.

About Adams Arms

Adams Arms is best known for its patented retro-fit piston drive system that's used on AR15/M16 platform rifles. There are several benefits to a piston system versus a direct impingement system. The main benefit is that it's a cleaner running system that directs gases away from the end-user. If you've run a direct impingement rifle, you know how quickly the bolt and bolt carrier builds up carbon; this doesn't happen with a piston system.
