Red Arrow RAW15

Recently, we’ve reported on several new firearms from Red Arrow Weapons. The RAW-10 launched in .308 Win. last fall. Then models in 300 BLK and 6.5 Creedmoor followed.

Now the RAW15, chambered in .223/5.56, comes set up for a wide range of shooting applications, on an even broader shooting profile. It features a free-floating 15-inch chrome moly, hard-coated barrel with a 1:8 twist. A 15-inch M-LOK rail system mates with an A3-style upper. Both upper and lower receivers come from forged 7075 aluminum.

The RAW15 also looks sharp, with midnight bronze or black with red accents. A CMC single-stage trigger provides a 3.5-pound pull. A mid-length gas system and shot-peened, magnetic particle inspected mil-spec 8620 bolt carrier group highlight the internals.

The RAW15 package includes many sought after upgrades and components, comprising a rifle suitable for competition, plinking, hunting or defense. At a price around $1,000, it’s worth a look. For even more info, please visit
