Former Italian and naturalized American, Gianluca Zanna, launches his latest creation: The “Don’t Tread on US – the Freedom rifle”—billed as the most affordable military grade semiautomatic AR15 rifle. The rifle comes in M4 configuration chambered in .223 Wylde that can shoot both 5.56 NATO and .223 4 MOA. The rifle is made in the USA—some from a company in Arizona—and has a lifetime warranty on the lower for just $499.
The affordable rifle is inspired by the sad reality of his former country Italy, where law abiding people have no Second Amendment Right “to keep and bear arms,” but a privilege granted by the government. After studying history, where slaves were never allowed to be armed, Zanna wanted to create the most affordable rifle for the working American man and woman who are committed into the defense of the Republic and innocent life.
Zanna states “The main purpose of the Don’t Tread on US Rifle is to give the opportunity to every law abiding American who loves freedom and refuses to be a subject to be armed with at least one military spec rifle and the knowledge on how to use it. This is my way of social justice!
“As you know, there are so many great rifles out there on the market, but not every American can afford one, especially now in this economy. After two-years of research and testing I was able to find two American companies (one in Mohave County Arizona) that could provide a great quality product and, thanks to my work, for an incredible price. I dare to say that the Don’t Tread on US Rifle, is the most affordable and reliable military grade rifle on the US market chambered in .223 Wylde.
“Since I am not an FFL dealer (and I do not want to be one) or a gun manufacturer, I want to be sure that is clear, that I will not sell you the whole rifle, but just the upper and then I will direct you to one of my FFL dealers where you will be able to get the lower for the Don’t Tread on US Rifle for an incredible price.”
For that combined with the Zanna-designed upper, you will be paying just $499 (tax and shipping not included).
“When I came out with the idea to create a rifle that every American could afford—and also be able to shoot, considering recoil, rifle’s size and ergonomics—the choice was clear: I needed to focus on the AR15 platform. My original choice for the Don’t Tread on US Rifle was the chamber in 5.56 NATO, so it could shoot both 5.56 and .223. As you know it is not safe to shoot 5.56 in .223 chambers.
“Then by accident, I stumbled into the .223 Wylde chamber. After testing the upper with this chamber I was so impressed that I decided to adopt it for the Don’t Tread on US Rifle. One of the things convinced me the most, was the reliability in being able to shoot and cycle without malfunctions in both calibers the 5.56 and the .223. Even the cheapest steel case rounds like .223 Russian ammunition—that normally would often get stuck in some of the more expensive 5.56 rifles—were cycling smoothly with no problems in the .223 Wylde chamber.
“Also the accuracy was phenomenal. Being able to shoot 4MOA—that translates in groups of 1 square inch group at 25 yards with iron sight and no bench—with this cheap ammo was a great plus. Also, doing more research, I was able to find out that this chamber and rifle twist (1:9) allows you to shoot heavier bullets than the standard 55 or 62 grains, that with quality rounds it can definitely help in overcome the average reach of the .223 or 5.56. These are the reasons why I chose the .223 Wylde Chamber for the Don’t Tread on US Rifle.
When you purchase Don’t Tread on US – The Freedom Rifle, you get more than just a military grade Rifle that can shoot 4 minutes of angle (4MOA). You will receive also knowledge and inspiration with free bonuses that Gianluca believes are as important as the Rifle itself.
