One of the big stories to come out of the NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Atlanta was the introduction of a brand new AR from Taurus, the T4SA. Check out the intro video below.

Built around a direct gas impingement system, the Taurus T4SA 5.56mm semi-automatic carbine features a forged aluminum A3 T-marked upper; lightweight, low-profile KeyMod (with QD attachment points) or M-LOK handguards; forged aluminum lower with a Magpul grip and trigger guard; six-position Magpul CTR buttstock; dual pinned Melonite low-profile gas block; Mil-spec buffer tube, recoil spring, H2 buffer and a staked castle nut; and a Melonite bolt carrier, bolt carrier key and bolt assembly that are Magnetic Particle Inspected.

The Taurus T4SA sports three different barrel lengths; 16 inches, 14.5 inches and 11.5 inches. The barrels are chrome moly with a 1:7 twist and are also Melonite treated. The company says the T4SA also has a 10,000-round barrel life.
