Managing Editor Aaron Carter takes a look at the Forbes Rifle LLC Model 24 and the partnership surrounding it in the January edition of the American Rifleman magazine.

The Big Picture: Forbes Rifle Model 24B

Following in the footsteps of the New Ultra Light Arms Model 24, the Forbes Rifle LLC Model 24B is built to Melvin Forbes’ standards and offers his signature custom touches—all at a more attractive price. But, that’s only the beginning.

There’s no denying the adage “everything happens for a reason.” Regardless if one attributes them to divine intervention or something less spectacular, life events influence future outcomes, even if we don’t fully understand why at the time. Such proved to be the case with Melvin Forbes, owner of New Ultra Light Arms (NULA).

“My son and daughter are happy with, and well-established in, their careers,” confided Forbes. “Nobody lives forever. With more than 7,000 [NULA and Ultra Light Arms, Inc. (ULA)] rifles out there, and my children not continuing the business, [the new venture] made sense. Those people will need support,” he added. In a world chock full of selfishness, Forbes’ reply exhibited true selflessness.

The opportunity to provide future services to NULA clientele, not to mention expand his customer base, came in 2010. “About a year and a half ago I was contacted by Jonathan Brawn, COO for Titan Machine Products, Inc.,” explained Forbes. “We decided to bring to market the Forbes Rifle Model 24B, in which I shared the design criteria, technology and manufacturing techniques, then supply the stocks. Titan Machine Products, Inc., through our new company, Forbes Rifle LLC, does the rest. The parts will be fully interchangeable with those in NULA rifles,” added Forbes.
