RISE Armament Partners with Folds of Honor

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma-(Ammoland.com)- RISE Armament, a premier manufacturer and supplier of AR firearms and components, is proud to announce its new Patriot High-Performance Trigger and corresponding partnership with Folds of Honor.

Dedicated to honoring and aiding veterans, Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of those who were killed or disabled while serving our nation. RISE Armament is proud to partner with Folds of Honor, donating a portion of each Patriot Trigger’s purchase price to the foundation.

“Saying we’re proud to help out and donate to Folds of Honor is an understatement,” says Matt Torres, president of RISE Armament. “Veterans’ families are often overlooked, which is really a shame. Our troops and their families have tremendous courage and have made so many sacrifices. It’s our duty as Americans, as patriots, to take care of them and honor what they’ve done for us all.”

There are more than 1 million fallen or disabled United States service members, and nearly 2 million military heroes’ dependents are negatively impacted by war. More than three-fourths of the families don’t qualify for federal aid, but the cost to provide educational scholarships to the dependents is $9 billion. Through the Patriot Trigger and other initiatives, RISE Armament is assisting Folds of Honor in its mission to help fill that void.

The Patriot High-Performance Trigger is an easy-to-install, accuracy-enhancing rifle upgrade. The trigger has a crisp, clean release and ultra-short reset for faster follow-up shots and improved accuracy. It has a light, 3.5-pound pull and straight trigger blade. A limited-edition item, the drop-in trigger group includes a commemorative challenge coin. It also includes free tools and anti-walk pins for fast and easy trigger installation. It is available from select retailers beginning Memorial Day weekend.

  • Single-stage trigger system with a lightened trigger pull (3.5-lb. pull weight)
  • Helps you shoot more accurately with less effort
  • Ultra-smooth to the break with a crisp, clean release
