GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory announces the launch of its first-ever content-driven lifestyle website, The Armory Life. The site provides firearms-focused video content, industry insight, and articles with expert commentary on a wide range of topics from home defense, concealed carry, survival, training tips, situational awareness, and preparation. The platform is a one stop shop for both entertainment and education, for those who live “The Armory Life”.
With a focus on delivering fresh and engaging content, Springfield Armory set out to create a unique website experience for the firearms enthusiast. “There is a lot of uncertainty with existing popular social media and video platforms and their stance on firearms. Our experience in navigating the social media landscape encouraged us to create a safe space for gun-related content, free from anti-gun political bias,” explained Springfield Armory VP of Marketing Steve Kramer. “This content won’t run the risk of being silenced.”
Heading up The Armory Life as Managing Editor is Clay Martin, a USMC Scout Sniper and retired Green Beret from 3rd SFG, published author, and well-respected gun writer. Martin will be managing a large team of content creators from across the firearms industry to provide a diverse cross-section of videos and articles for readers to enjoy. “This is a lifestyle we all love and we are excited to provide a daily content platform that embraces the passion of the firearms community”.
In 1794, the original Springfield Armory was designated as our national armory by General George Washington, and began manufacturing muskets for the defense of our young, free Republic. This monumental institution went on to serve as a think tank for developing innovative firearms concepts and producing some of the most storied rifle platforms in our country’s history. The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.
Springfield Armory Inc. engineers, manufactures and assembles their legendary M1A™, 1911, 911 and SAINT® AR-15 lines of firearms in Geneseo, Illinois. Since 2001, Springfield Armory has enjoyed a strategic, collaborative partnership with the state-of-the-art factory in Croatia working hand-in-hand to develop and engineer the multiple award-winning line of XD® polymer pistols that have become staples in the US marketplace. We strive to honor this responsibility as guardians of the original Springfield Armory legacy by manufacturing the highest quality firearms to enable responsible citizens to preserve their right to keep and bear arms in the defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
With an unmatched emphasis on craftsmanship, performance and exceptional customer service, our mission is to forge superior firearms and provide the tools necessary to defend individual freedoms and equality for those who embrace the rights and principles secured by our Founding Fathers.
