The new rifle features all the upgrades found in the Puritan series. Features included are a 4.5 pound single stage drop in trigger, nitride heat treated barrel and components, NP3 coated bolt carrier, anti-tilt buffer tube, three-position adjustable short stroke gas piston system, roller cam pin and the patented E² extraction technology.
Slamming the 7.62x39mm cartridge into a lightweight AR platform has many advantages. Think about the weapons manipulation skills developed through years of owning the standard .223/5.56 AR. Now those skills translate directly into a package that weighs the same but packs a significantly larger “punch.”
How about ammunition price? Depending on location, 7.62×39 ammunition is roughly 40 percent cheaper than .223/5.56. More bang for your buck in 2 categories!
The Puritan retails for approximately $1,499 and is available now.
