Springfield armory

This guy’s voice sounds like what pure testosterone sounds like:

“Give yourself the edge”… Ok.  The “pistol” is nice, I’ll give them that… however it’s definitely on the NeVa BiN DuN BeFO list along with every other possible configuration of AR-15.  MSRP $1,560.

0:26 – “Battle ready”?  I wish they would have elaborated on that one with specifics.  I just want to hear about the battle they are marketing it for… ISIS?  Home invasion shootouts?  The GubMiNt whEN ThEy trYnA CoMe n TaKe It?  All of the above?

0:37 – LOL this dude hiked to some higher ground just to dump some rounds.

Here’s another ad with the same narrator, for their RO Elite Operator 1911 in 10mm.  Since it’s a 10mm I’m almost positive some wild shit is going to be said:

Again, it looks nice I guess.  Whose buying $1145 1911’s though and what does this 1911 do differently than every other 1911 they and every other manufacturer has made since WWI?  At least with electronics, take Apple for instance if you get a new phone you get the benefits of it being quicker, nicer looking, thinner, nicer screen, better camera, better sound and the list goes on and on.  Would it be a flex to own this gun and show your buddies?  Would they go “WHOA… dude I can’t believe you own the coveted RO Elite Operator 10mm 1911.  So Siiiiiiiiiick.  Can I hold it?”?

0:20 – Comparing the handgun to a kid with the “AHhhh they grow up so fast”.. then on to the “It’s hard to raise a good handgun today.  In a WORLD OF ENTITLED SNOWFLAKES the…” Ok guys I think that’s enough internet for me today.  Oh man it goes further into “HeLL ya BoRtHer” territory after that unfortunately.

0:56 – “Built for lead slingers who don’t believe in excuses OR participation awards”. C R I N G E 😬.

Um so like are you fellas defending your legacy or are you a bunch of cuck snowflake entitled pansies that proLLy voted for Hitlery?  (I feel like the essence of my made up outro must have been in at at least one of the initial script drafts of these commercials 😂)

Pull up… a chair:

Good video.  I didn’t realize it required so much hand fitting in today’s day and age.  I just figured they hit the green button on the CNC machine, and everything came out fitting perfectly down to the thousandth of an inch.

I’m still choked ever since one of you guys put me onto this little fact:

In 1974, the Springfield Armory name was licensed to Robert Reese, to form Springfield Armory, Inc., a company that manufactures semi-automatic versions of the M14 rifle and M1911 pistol. The company is not located in or near Springfield, Massachusetts and has no direct association with the original Springfield Armory.

That hit me in the feels, because all their marketing really is pushing the history angle; “Since 1794” in their official logo too.

Looks like Springfieldgate was successfully swept under the rug.  Good for them I guess?  Not really surprising.  The internet forgets even the most heinous shit in no time at all, especially when it comes to brands that make products which people own, or want to own.

They made a sappy video:

*shrug* I never saw a reason to buy Springfield’s “Glock”, and I still don’t.  Sure they make some other nice stuff, but I’m not buying long guns right now.  I really wish that CEO Dennis would have cried during the video… he was close, but I wanted a tear.

YankeeMarshal has a watchable video every now and then.  This is one of them. Here’s him talking about the debacle:

Thoughts?  You buying it?  You applaud Rob Letham for standing up for them, or do you think he’s sus now too?

There are some funny / good comments on Springfield Armory’s video, if you have time to click through and check them out.

It still pisses me off that Springfield Armory just “bought the name” in 1974 yet keep the bold “Since 1794” on the logo suggesting it’s the original.

Were you aware?  haha basically if you subscribe to them on YouTube they still won’t shut up about it.  They even have an all-girl show out now:

PLOT TWIST: Their biggest competitor is… THEMSELVES.  *whoa guys… mind blown.*

Jokes aside, if this show is anything like ABC’s The Bachelor, I’m down. *SMH Nick should have picked Raven* Moving on here’s Episode #1:

Seven episodes are up on their channel if you click through. The one thing which I’m hesitant about, is that at least two of those girls post on instagram NON STOP. It’s probably easy money, but it just comes across (to me anyways) as thirsty for approval and praise… which naturally all the m’lady neckbeards are quick to hand out.

Larry Vuitton doing a good job pretending he gives a shit about this at SHOT this year:

Holy how big is the Springfield Armory marketing budget?  I swear like 90% of the gun YouTubers have some Saint related video up.  If you follow Springfield on YouTube I’m also guessing you’ve definitely had enough Saint related videos to last a lifetime.  I didn’t count the exact number, but if you click through to their channel here, you’ll see what I mean.

I’m proposing that 2017 be the year of no one giving a shit about “new” AR-15s.  I was already like that since about 2014, but I hope it catches on.  I actually think it might be, because already we lost Olympic Arms according to the announcement on their site.  No reason mentioned, but they were one of the OG’s, so times must be tough.  Gotta evolve brAh.

haha at the end of the video you can tell they buttered LAV up because he mentions that they even used his Vickers Tactical sling on the video stuff.

The MSRP of this “Saint” is $899.  haha man that name is embarrassing to even type.
