When speed and light weight are needed, this shorty carbine is the right choice. Carbine length and ribbed hand guards keep swing weight to a minimum and the hand guards, pistol grip and trap door style A2 buttstocks are all molded of rugged thermoset polymer composite material. The heavy profile barrel, with chrome lined bore and chamber, offers exceptional accuracy for it's length and is externally manganese phosphate finished for complete protection against corrosion and rust - as are all critical steel parts of the carbine. The latest M16A2 sight system, fitted with a dual flip-up aperture for either short range shots at moving targets or long distance accuracy, offers adjustment for windage and elevation. The elevation knob is graduated from 300 to 800 meters so that range adjustments may be made without the need to calculate bullet drop. The forged, lightweight 7075T6 aircraft quality aluminum receivers have all M16A2 design improvements including cartridge case deflector, last round bolt hold open and raised ridges for magazine release button protection. The special model of the A3 has the removable carry handle and the AK74 style muzzle brake permanently attached so as to comply with the minimum 16" legal length.
