FoldAR® was founded to introduce truly revolutionary products that meet the trending demands of high quality compact/stowable AR platform firearms primarily for the Law Enforecement and MIlitary Special Operations communities. FoldAR® is a Veteran owned and operated company, and all parts are proudly built in the USA!
The FoldAR® platform has instantly (and permanently) earned its place as the final authority over the previously-disputed title of “most compact” AR-style rifle… ever. The reason FoldAR® unabashedly claims such a title rests in the fact that -when stowed- the overall length of the fully-assembled rifle is equal to the length of its barrel.The FoldAR® platform also claims title to the quickest deploying takedown AR ever, able to be deployed and fire-ready in less than 5 seconds!
FoldAR® is a brand of East Texas Machining & Manufacturing LLC, which is dedicated to research and development and volume production of quality firearms products. ETM is owned and operated by Corby and Sandra Hall, both natives of Henderson, Texas. Mr. Hall was a Texas A&M Aerospace Engineering and Industrial Technology student before enlisting in the US Navy immediately after 9/11. He designed, developed, patented, and personally machines the components unique to the FoldAR® product line. Many of Mr. Hall's firearm prodcut designs, manufacturing processes, and inventions are found throughout the AR industry and are being used by Sig Sauer, LWRC, Daniel Defense, Sturm Ruger & Co, F-1 Firearms LLC, Battel Arms Development Inc., Lewis Machine Tool Company, and American Defense Mfg LLC -among others. Mrs. Hall left her 15 year career in banking to support ETM's product development, customer service, marketing, and assembly. As of December 2019, the Hall's are retired, but will continue building a limited number of FoldAR products for select customers. We will also continue expanding the folding-AR product line and improving upon the quality of our select builds to exceed industry and military standards.
