Armalite M-15 A2 Carbine


The Armalite M-15 A2 Carbine is a tactical rifle chambered in .223 Rem. The Carbine is a shorter version of the M-15 A2 Service Model Rifle. With a 16″ barrel, the Carbine comparatively has a shorter barrel and overall length by four inches. The Carbine also features an adjustable length of pull (10.375″ collapsed, 14.5″ extended), which the A2 Service Model can’t boast. The M-15 A2 Carbine is a variant of one of four rifles manufactured and sold by Armalite. Armalite recommends the M-15 A2 Carbine for close quarters combat by military and law enforcement. 

The M-15 A2 Carbine features a two-stage trigger and aluminum-made upper and lower receiver. The first stage of the trigger pull checks in at 3.5 lbs, the second stage is approximately five or six pounds. The gun also features a steel, chrome-lined barrel threaded for a flash suppressor, which reduces the visible signature of the burning gases that exit the muzzle. The M-15 A2 Carbine has a synthetic stock finished in black or green, and weighs 6.8125 lbs. The gun is equipped with an A2 front sight. 

Armalite is an influential firearms manufacturer resurrected in 1996. The company is currently based out of Geneseo, Illinois.
