“By utilizing the URX II rail system with our integrated front sight, we have developed one of the most compact and simplest Short Barrel Rifles (SBR) on the market. The URX equipped on this system extends the full length of the barrel and allows the operator an unobstructed forward view while providing numerous options for mounting optics and other accessories. Our 11.5-inch SBR is ideal for Competition Shooters, as well as providing unique capabilities for our Law Enforcement and Military communities.”

“KAC’s 5.56 classic Carbine is based on Eugene Stoner’s renowned M16 military platform. It features a 16-inch Chrome Lined, Mil-Spec Barrel and Mid-Length gas-system for an extremely reliable and highly controllable weapon. Our Integrated Weapon System (IWS) creates a truly versatile weapon platform with its Iron Sights, Ambidextrous Controls and numerous Sling Mount points.”

One of these things is very affordable; 20 bucks. And awesome.

“Development started in 2007 with the idea to create a more vertical grip for the AR-15 platform, reducing wrist fatigue of the Operator while encouraging a more natural ‘elbows down’ shooting posture. Magpul Design Group was consulted to exploit their knowledge, experience, and expertise of advanced polymers. Several prototypes were fielded and tested with the superior design chosen for production. This final variation, number 23, represents the combination of professional shooter feedback and engineering excellence. Umbrella Corporation AR-15 Rifle Grips are made to the finest standards and carry an unconditional guarantee against material defect and manufacturing failure. Installation by a qualified Armorer is required.”
