Adams Arms did not stipulate which branch of the Ukrainian armed forces or security services the rifles are for, but said they had been working on orders for a few months.

We’ve been assembling their final orders over the past few months,” said Adams Arms President Jason East. “Since the beginning of the Russian invasion, we have worked around the clock to ensure that our shipment of firearms will arrive safely and in full. We stand with the people of Ukraine and are proud to know that the Adams Arms products will be used to support the independence of a sovereign nation.
