The C-22 Carbine is a .22 LR AR-platform rifle that is designed to look, feel and handle like a 5.56mm NATO AR as much as possible. It features a carbon-fiber lower receiver with a standard, six-position-collapsible buttstock and an A2-style pistol grip. This lower can also accept .223 Remington/5.56mm NATO aluminum upper receivers—another boon for reducing training costs! The upper receiver on the C-22 Carbine is also made of carbon-fiber. It features a 16-inch-long barrel that is threaded for adding sound suppressors, brakes and other muzzle devices. The C-22 Carbine ships with an A2-style flash suppressor installed.
For targeting, the rifle comes with an A2-style front post (with a sling swivel), while the upper receiver has a flattop Picatinny rail for mounting whatever optics or sights you desire. Surrounding the barrel and gas system are M4-style handguards with heat shields, which provide an excellent grip and protect the shooter’s hands effectively.
