This direct impingement rifle uses a carbine length gas system with an adjustable A2 style front post integrated into the gas block and an Adjustable Ruger Rapid Deploy sight to the rear. A picatinny rail on the upper receiver allows for the mounting of the optic of your choice.

Out back, a six position adjustable M4 style butt stock allows for the correct fit to your body type. One 30 round magazine included.
