Like all direct impingement operated rifles of this style, this rifle works best with BTHP, polymer tipped and FMJ bullets and does NOT work well with lead tipped, all lead, round nose or other soft point bullets. It also requires generous lubrication of the bolt assembly at all times. This is critical for the first 500 rounds as the moving parts break in.
These rifles have a MATCH GRADE barrel and chamber. The use of off-shore surplus or corrosive ammo is not recommended. We have found that match grade factory ammo or handloads will produce the best accuracy. Decent domestically manufactured bulk ammo will not harm the rifle. These rifles are all test fired for function with American Eagle 55gr FMJ bulk ammo. This ammo will not produce the best accuracy but will function reliably.
As most know, the AR15 platform is a restricted rifle in Canada. We have come up with a modular rifle that shares many of the AR15 assets in so far as being very modular and it will accept the use of most AR15 furniture. AND it is NON-Restricted.
The base model rifle is $3350.00. (This may vary dependent on exchange rate) There are many options included at no added cost as well as a large number of upgrades available at additional cost.
The base model rifle will be offered with either an A2 fixed stock or a 6 position collapsible stock as standard equipment however Magpul CTR collapsible, Magpul PRS adjustable and KFS TacMod adjustable stocks are available upgrades at additional cost.
The base model rifle will come standard with a stainless steel match grade barrel. It will be chambered in .223 Wylde.
Minimum Barrel length will be 18.6" to keep it non-restricted and will come standard with a threaded muzzle.
Stainless barrels will be available in 3 contours, light, medium and heavy.
We will also be offering an optional Proof Research Carbon Fiber Wrapped barrel to keep the weight down.
This rifle will also come standard with a 3 lb match quality single stage trigger. This is the only option for triggers at this point. Ambi bolt release comes standard on the base model and ambi safety and mag release are available upgrades.
The base model rifle will be offered with a DPMS free float tube however JP Enterprise modular handguards, Fortis Mfg. SWITCH Keymod handguards and PRI carbon fiber handguards are available upgrades.
