The TAPCO adaptor rail permits attaching a scope to the AR-15 carry handle.
Four allen head bolts hold everything together. The one in the trigger guard is a bit tough to get at.
Don’t lose the floating bullet guide when you disassemble the Accelerator – nothing retains it when you remove the four bolts.
Excel Arms has reason to be proud of its Accelerator carbine; with the right load it’s fully capable of fine accuracy.
Depressing the magazine follower with the provided simple tool makes loading easy.
The Accelerator’s bull barrel features flutes and a recessed crown.
Controls – safety and bolt release – are on the left side.
A 36x scope and sandbag rests on a concrete bench did much to compensate for stiff, swirling winds at the range.
