True Velocity Announces Genesis Rifle

True Velocity has had some major announcements lately. First, it was reported that True Velocity had partnered with Beretta USA for production of the U.S. Army’s NGSW (Next Generation Squad Weapon) and was developing the rifle for international and commercial sale. Now they have announced their NGSW prototype, the RM277, and will be known on the commercial line as the Genesis.

True Velocity recently announced their Genesis rifle, which is the commercial version of the RM277 rifle from the Next Generation Squad Weapon, or NGSW program.

The Genesis is the 6.8mm bullpup based on the RM277 NGSW rifle. While the rifle is not yet commercially available, interested individuals are recommended to sign up “to reserve a place in line” for the launch.

The Genesis rifle has a patented recoil mitigation system that looks like it could stand up to their claim of it being the “most advanced rifle ever created”.

Another video posted by True Velocity gives the first look at the new Genesis rifle. The Genesis rifle has an overall length of 29.125 inches and has a 19-inch barrel. The patented recoil mitigation system is put on display in the video and looks intriguing.

Patti Miller is one of the most awesome females in the tactical/firearm (or any) industry. Imagine a tall, hawt, dangerous Laura Ingalls Wilder type with cool hair and a suppressed blaster and you’ll be getting the idea. What’s interesting is that in addition to being a willing brawler and intrepid adventuress, she’s also an Ent/Ogier level gardener and a truly badass baker.
