Someone said Chris Adams sold off Adams Industries to another company??

Anyone have details?
Link Posted: 4/19/2019 9:51:19 AM EDT
Hate to hear this, I’ve bought direct from a chris 2-3 times without issue, he even discounted me a set of ocular lenses when another “well reputed” dealer sold me a housing built with foggy glassed knock offs according to him and the builder.

Anyway, I had dissimilar experiences with him from the ones posted hear and I hate to hear about this for all involved.

Chris forwarded my info to the new owners but I haven't heard anything back.  I'm hesitant to call because the person who was quoted in the post after yours blew up the guys phone and he wasn't too happy with it.  However, shoot me a PM and I'll forward you his email address.  Hopefully he can help.

I'm looking for contact info for the new owner of some one could send it over to me.
Link Posted: 5/7/2019 4:48:45 PM EDT
I've tried to make contact with a few guys through various groups.

If you're still owed an outstanding amount of money, please contact me with your info.

There are 7 guys that I know of, myself included.

As of the past 2 weeks, my calls and texts have been ignored by both Chris Adam's and chris pipes(the new guys handling the situation).

Something shady is definently going on.

When I called Asymetrical solutions, the woman i spoke to did not have a clue as to what I was talking about. Though she confirmed chris pipes works at one of their locations.

Class action lawsuit? That really sucks bad for everyone. I bought from him a few times, and while he wasn’t the fastest to deal with he always came through. He even hooked me up with a pair of amber filters for free due to waiting for my shipment so long.

I'm pretty sure Sentinels will be fine. They are manufactured by AB Nightvision and I believe they also hold the rights to them. Don't quote me as I am not 100% sure.

TNVC’s website says “developed by Adams Industries”, so even if AB manufactures them, I’m guessing AI holds the rights. After all, have you seen anyone have them in stock lately?

I believe TNVC did say that they don't think the Sentinel is going anywhere. There is just shit that needs to be sorted out.

From what I have heard it sounds like AB has the rights, but I am not sure...

I think most vendors are pushing the RNVG anyway unless you want the ability to use the ball detent mount.

I've got a set of TNVC sentinels and, after thinking about it, I don't know if it will really matter much.  In the unlikely scenario that something sentinel-specific breaks and you can't get replacement parts you can pull the tubes & optics for use on a RNVG chassis.  I figure in a couple of years a RNVG chassis without tubes or optics will be rather affordable.  There isn't a whole lot to it once you take the tubes & optics out of the solution.

I haven't asked TNVC about it, but I figure if I had a problem they'd help me find a workable solution.

Any info on whether or not the new owners have the right to produce the Paladin?

This is a complete guess...

I don't think so. Chris made it sound like he was still work on it and going to produce it. If that is the case, then I assume it is dead... Hopefully I am wrong and something happens with it. If the new owners have the rights to it I don't know if they would even be interested in pursuing it. I don't think they are interested in civilian sales.

The guy could be a little more professional and give us the courtesy of a simple response.

I cant prove it or am assuming it is true, but it looks like there has been a lot of malicious intent towards Adam's. Thus causing it to roll down hill and impact everyone with open orders.

I might have pre-jacked because I didn't see it on their website. TNVC hit me up they should have one.

Some people were refunded via paypal dispute and through credit card companies. The lucky ones.

He flat out robbed me of 12k for a product he supposedly had in hand. Damn well hard earned money. It's a shame a crime like this Is so easily committed and gotten away with.

Word from the horses mouth is he acquired a cnc machine and is attempting to make housings.

Nope. He doesnt have the money. It was most likely used to pay off another debt as soon as it hit his bank account.

I have bought a few directly from Chris over the years, really sorry to hear that his business went under. More sorry to hear that some people got stiffed in the process, he was always good to me. I stripped the bridge out on my sentinels and he fixed them for free.

I didn’t know him outside of our transactions but I’ve seen other businesses try to stay afloat by doing the robbing peter to pay Paul model. Sometimes it works as a stop gap measure but usually ends badly.

The guy should be in jail for theft.

Some people on the FB groups were trying to make it sound like they were still in business. I hope that guy isn't still trying to sell stuff to unknowing customers.
