Fulton Armory’s Titan Carbine—equipped with Trijicon’s ACOG 4x scope, OSTI AN/PVS-22 Universal Night Sight, and Laser Devices’ Blast 2 LED laser/light — delivers exceptional reliability and accuracy on par with many bolt-action rifles.
Fulton Armory has long been noted as a producer of high-quality rifles, including every type of semi-automatic rifle used by the United States military in the 20th century. The M1 Garand, M1 Carbine, M14 (M1A) and AR-15—all have been produced by Fulton Armory. Fulton Amory has been producing its Titan series of 7.62mm AR-type rifles for several years, but the most recent version redefines the rifle.
The latest Fulton Armory Titan, like its predecessor and all other Fulton Armory products, is a true custom rifle built in the Fulton Armory facility using only the best components available and manufactured not only in 7.62mm, but 6.5 Creedmoor. There is an extensive list of options so the potential Titan buyer can tailor his or her rifle to their individual taste or mission profile. The Titan is available as an upper conversion in addition to being available as a complete rifle. Thus, any 7.62mm owner with a compatible lower receiver such as DPMS or Remington can add a Fulton Armory Titan match-grade 6.5 Creedmoor or 7.62mm upper.
Probably the first question any potential Titan buyer is going to ask is, “What makes the Titan any different from any other 7.62mm AR?” First and foremost, Fulton Armory uses only the best components available, beginning with stripped 6061-T billet receivers pre-marked with the Fulton Armory logo and U.S. Rifle. Barrels are Krieger’s Criterion with four groove 1-in-10-inch or 1-in-12-inch twist rifling and are available with 7.62mm in 16-, 18.5-, 20- and 22-inch lengths and with 6.5 Creedmoor with four groove 1-in-8-inch twist in 24- and 26-inch lengths. The 7.62mm test rifle had the 18.5-inch lightweight chrome lined 1-in-10-inch twist variation, while the 6.5 Creedmoor variant was equipped with a 26-inch 1-in-8-inch twist matte target gray barrel. Barrels are also available in plain stainless. The matte finish reduces glint under tactical conditions and at the same time provides a finish that is esthetically pleasing. The muzzle end of the 7.62mm barrel was fitted with a GI-type flash suppressor/muzzle brake as standard with a JP Enterprises Bennie Cooley model tactical muzzle brake as an option. The compression fit gas block is a Fulton Armory design that is essentially part of the barrel. In fact, the fit and finish of the Titan is among the very best I have ever encountered in an AR.
