About Black Dawn

When we first envisioned building an AR-15 and M4 styled rifle, we had one driven purpose: Construct a rifle that could conquer the toughest extremes and offer unparalleled accuracy. Of course, we wanted all of the parts to be made in the USA. With these criteria established, we set off to find the best components possible to make such a rifle. We discovered that certain parts didn’t meet our strict standards, even with improvements. We came to the conclusion that we would design and manufacture our own.

With a lot of hard work, sweat and determination, we did just that. When we built our first rifle in 2008, we couldn’t have imaged that we would see such overwhelming growth in such a short amount of time. The word was getting out. In 2010, we fulfilled a dream and opened Black Dawn Armory in Sedalia, Missouri.

As a Pro Shop, we offer firearms from the top leading manufacturers and a full line of accessories geared toward the AR market including our own Black Dawn parts. We expanded our in-house Custom Shop to offer a wide range of services and finish options allowing our customers to build a truly one-of-a-kind rifle. In 2011, sales exceeded our expectations once again as we introduced the Zombie Slayer line of rifles and accessories to the public.

To this day, each rifle we produce is made one at a time and tested thoroughly for absolute functioning reliability with unsurpassed accuracy. This is how we started and this is where our reputation was earned.

Our strong Midwest principles of honesty, integrity and congruence are core values at Black Dawn Industries, and they are built into every rifle that proudly displays the Black Dawn logo. We are committed to providing our customers with the best rifles with for the money.

Today, we are excited to offer our line of rifles featuring Magpul MOE furniture and Magpul MBUS flip-up sights as the standard setup. We are also proud to introduce a rifle chambered in the new .300 BLACKOUT. This is really an impressive round in the AR-15 platform. Utilizing the standard 5.56 magazines is a great bonus.

We are diligently working on an AR-10 chambered in .308 Win that will live up to the reputation our AR-15s have established. We’re sure you will not be disappointed when it is released later this year. This is shaping up to be yet another groundbreaking year for us, and we look forward to you joining our family!
