Big Horn Armory Signs Laura Burgess Marketing (LBM) as Press Relations Agency

The designers and manufacturers of the big-bore, lever-action Model 89 and AR500 semi-auto rifles partner with LBM to grow customer awareness in the commercial and law enforcement markets.

Cody, Wyo. (June 2018) – Big Horn Armory, makers of big-bore firearms, has signed industry veteran, Laura Burgess Marketing (LBM), to facilitate press relations in the commercial and law enforcement markets.

Big Horn Armory came on the market in 2012 with their Model 89, based on John Browning type lever-action gun chambered in .500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. With an attention to detail, the guns fit and finish rival that found on most custom guns. In 2017, Big Horn Armory took the popular AR-style .308 platform and upped its game to accommodate the 500 Auto Max cartridge. Where power is needed, whether hunting big game or in protecting American assets, Big Horn Armory is the go-to designer and manufacturer of big bore guns.

“We had just partnered with Adaptive Tactical as our OEM EX Performance stock provider for our AR500 semi-auto rifle and LBM wrote and distributed a press release for Adaptive,” Greg Buchel, president and founder of Big Horn Armory, stated. “Because of the contacts and PR platforms available only through LBM, we saw immediate results, and realized that this was the marketing tool we needed to increase our market share.”

“Big Horn Armory is a great American success story and we are proud to help spread the word about their unique market, their passion for big game hunting and the dedication to craftsman and building fine quality guns,” Laura Burgess, president of LBM added.

About Big Horn Armory:

Big Horn Armory was founded in 2008 with the expressed intention of designing a Browning-type lever-action gun chambered in 500 Smith & Wesson Magnum. The Big Horn Armory Model 89, made in America, closely follows the work of John Browning with modern refinements courtesy of modern metallurgy and machining capabilities. The first rifles began shipping in September of 2012 and since then, BHA has added to their big bore lineup with a Model 90 Carbine in 460 S&W, the Model 90A in 454 Casull, the Model 90B in .45 Colt, the Model 89A in 500 Linebaugh and the Model 89B in .475 Linebaugh. In 2017, Big Horn Armory took a departure from its lever-action series and developed the AR500 Auto Max, the most powerful short-range, semi-auto based on an AR .308 platform.
