The Well Armed Woman/LWRCI DIADEM AR-15 Rifle has won the prestigious Golden Bullseye Women’s Innovation Product of the Year Award! Each year, NRA Publications awards those who have created the industry’s best new products. I can’t tell you how proud I am. Proud of this outstanding rifle and proud to have been part of something never seen in the firearms industry. A collaborative effort to design a firearm for women by women. Not a woman, but hundreds of women who created the “must have” list that was the roadmap for the designers and engineers at LWRCI to follow. To put it in the words of LWRCI leadership “Give them what they want”! Boy did they ever!

NRA Publications will present its annual Golden Bullseye Awards and Golden Bullseye Pioneer Award at an invitation-only breakfast on Friday, May 4, during the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Dallas, TX.
“We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Golden Bullseye Awards,” said Doug Hamlin, Executive Director of NRA Publications. “This year’s winners exemplify what NRA members want in their shooting and hunting equipment—outstanding performance, innovative design and value. We congratulate those who have created the industry’s best new products and look forward to recognizing them in Dallas.”
To qualify for consideration for a Golden Bullseye Award, the product must have been:
- Recently introduced and available to consumers prior to the selection of the Golden Bullseye Awards;
- Used/tested by a staff member or regular contributor to the magazine and/or affiliated media;
- Reliable in the field, meeting or exceeding the evaluator’s expectations;
- Innovative in design and function;
- Readily perceived as a value to the purchaser; and
- Styled in a manner befitting the shooting and hunting industry and, perhaps more importantly, its enthusiasts.
In addition to the Golden Bullseye Award, which acknowledges the finest products available in the shooting sports, there is also the Golden Bullseye Pioneer Award that specifically honors outstanding personal achievement. The Pioneer Award spotlights the exemplary achievement and cumulative body of work of an individual, or members of a family, team or partnership, responsible for the development and introduction of shooting equipment that has made a profound, positive and enduring impact on the way Americans shoot and hunt.
