RISE Armament has teamed up with Folds of Honor for a run of special edition Patriot Rifles, which will be auctioned to help raise scholarship funds for the children and spouses of fallen or disabled service members.
Rise Armament Patriot Rifle
Though they are similar, don’t confuse the Patriot for RISE’s Legacy American Flag AR-15. The eye-catching Patriot rifle boasts a custom Cerakote flag design. It includes the emblems of the five military branches, in addition to the Folds of Honor logo and tagline, “Honoring Their Sacrifice. Educating Their Legacy.”
Chambered in .223 Wylde, this rifle features a 16-inch 416R stainless steel Rise Armament CB-160 barrel with a RA-701 compensator. It also sports a 15-inch RA-902 M-LOK handguard; Patriot High-Performance trigger; RA-212 charging handle; 7075 billet aluminum billet Ripper upper and lower receiver; AIM ambidextrous safety; and a TACMOD stock. The rifle also weighs in at six pounds and 12 ounces. It has an overall length of 32.25 inches.
Folds of Honor
Folds of Honor will auction 13 of these rifles—one for each time the flag is folded before giving it to a family member at the funeral of a fallen service member. Each rifle includes a custom display case and a Rise Armament and Folds of Honor commemorative challenge coin.
In addition to the rifle, the company is selling a Patriot High Performance-Trigger individually for $219. The rifles are not available for purchase; they’re only being auctioned off by Folds of Honor.
Folds of Honor provides educational scholarships to children and spouses killed or disabled while serving this country.
“To say we’re proud to help out and donate to Folds of Honor is an understatement,” Rise Armament president Matt Torres said. “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.”
