New for 2018, Bushmaster’s line of AR pattern handguns in 5.56 and .300 Blackout come complete with an SB tactical arm brace.

Available in three models, the pistols get their name from the free-floating AAC Square Drop handguard that comes standard across the line and feature a Mil-Std upper and lower, AAC Blackout flash hider, Hogue overmold grip and ALG Defense fire control group.

Each of the models, offered with seven-, nine- or 10-inch chrome-moly steel barrels, is priced at $1,399, recommended. Each ship with a 30-round magazine.

Bushmaster announced the guns are available for shipping to retailers this week and had them on display last month at SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
