Trojan Firearms upgraded its TFA-UL15 rifle platform, introducing the updated model via press release Tuesday.

The original TFA-UL15 design made its debut in 2016 but has since undergone a few changes. The high performance 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. caliber rifle remains lightweight, weighing under 6-pounds; but now the rifle features the new Gen. III ambi-charging handle and keymod handrail with the option of either the curved bow or straight bow drop-in trigger group. In addition, the updated rifle boasts more Cerakote colors for shooters who like a little pizzazz in their gun cabinet.

The direct gas impingement AR-15 is constructed of CNC machined, high-grade aircraft billet aluminum with a 416 stainless Wylde Chamber Hanson barrel offering a 1-8 twist.

The TFA-UL15 comes in two package options — a standard starting at $1,559.99 and a “featherweight” priced at $1,669.99. The featherweight touts a low-mass PVD gold coated bolt carrier group and low mass buffer system, dropping the rifle’s weight down to 5-pounds, 8-ounces.
