After exiting the firearm scene last year, the AK-centric magazine and accessory maker is getting a second lease on life.
US Palm founder, Robert Anderson, waved the white flag last August citing a “downsizing economy, industry instability, and internal factors” but the company’s social media page teased a zombie-like rebirth before making it official that, in association with Century Arms, the Palm is back in business.
“Century’s significant history with the AK platform made them a logical fit for this effort and their energy regarding this project and insistence on sticking with our original vision has been impressive,” said Anderson in a joint statement. “The fact that we are heavily involved in this process and not simply being swallowed up by a massive corporate conglomerate was very important to us.”
Besides its distinctive waffle mags and grips, the combined effort with Century is billed as helping to launch a number of designs and prototypes that never made it to market.
US Palm’s original website is offline as of Tuesday, but they plan to attend the Red Oktober shooting event next month in St. George, Utah and be on hand for SHOT 2019 in Las Vegas.
