Rise Armament provides 13 special edition rifles, known as the Patriot Rifle, to Folds of Honor to help fund educational scholarships for children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members.

The Patriot Rifles are custom built by Rise Armament, featuring a Cerakote flag design. The rifles also include the Folds of Honor logo and tagline — “Honoring their sacrifice. Educating their legacy.”

Chambered in .223 Wylde, the rifles are built on aluminum billet upper and lower receivers. The Patriot Rifles boast a RA-701 compensator, 15-inch M-LOK handguard and Rise Armament Patriot High-Performance Trigger. Weighing just over 6 pounds, the rifle measures 32.25-inches in overall length with a 16-inch lightweight Rise Armament barrel. The design is topped off with an AIM Ambi safety and TacMod Stock.

“We’re very proud of the Patriot Rifle and what it stands for,” Matt Torres, President of Rise Armament, said in a news release. “Supporting Folds of Honor and the people who have sacrificed so much for our country is very important to RISE.”

The Patriot Rifles will be auctioned off throughout the year, with each rifle shipping in a custom display case with Rise Armament and Folds of Honor commemorative challenge coin.

In addition to providing the rifles for auction, Rise says it will also offer its special-edition Patriot Trigger individually for sale to consumers. The trigger is available through Rise Armament with a MSRP of $219.

Folds of Honor is a nonprofit organization created to help families of military men and women who have fallen or become disabled while on active duty. The organization’s main goal is to provide educational scholarships and opportunities through private education tuition and tutoring for children in grades K-12 as well as offering higher education tuition assistance to spouses and dependents.
