Springfield armory

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.

Thoughts?

With a shitty new vinyl wall cling depicting one of their firearms:

These things are terrible for so many reasons.  First of all, their firearms in stock configurations are boring as hell.  Secondly, using isometric views for this purpose just looks queer.  My tertiary concern is that you are essentially putting a 2 foot sticker on your wall.  I’m not saying everyone’s house has to look like something out of the pages of Architectural Digest, but for god’s sake have some dignity.

If you have no respect for the aesthetics of a particular room in your house, or the feelings of your significant other then head over to the Springfield Armory website and drop $30 on one of these 2 ft. monstrosities.

And no I wouldn’t be on board if Glock did the same thing with vinyl clings.

Thoughts?

I DON’T…

I wish they would focus on:

1) Creating a single stack handgun

2) Creating some type of rifle

I like my Glocks the way they are.

Hopefully when the new model gets released at the 2010 SHOT show everyone will want one so bad that the market gets flooded with cheap used Glocks. :P

On a side note, it would be absolutely hilarious if these new Glocks have a magazine disconnect and external safety on them.

In an unprecedented ballsy move, Springfield Armory bought up a TON of advertising space on one of my favorite forums GlockTalk , and which I also happen to have a small ad on.

For those that are not familiar with Springfield, they are one of Glock’s main competitors, and have been working hard at getting their new XDM line of polymer pistols out there into the hands of both Law Enforcement and civilians.

I’m not sure if there are any users on GlockTalk that have not heard of Springfield Armory, but if they havent then it will be pretty hard to miss one of their banners.

The very top banner, and the middle one are on random rotation, but the right and left side banners are static and will appear on every page!

I wonder if Glock ads will start appearing on Sprinfield forums such as XDtalk?   It’s your move Gaston… your move…
