Have you been looking for a small tactical entry sized weapon that packs more punch than a .223? If you have then this is the rifle for you! It shoots .308 Win and it features a 16" threaded barrel with an AR (assault rifle) style receiver. For stopping power, .308 Win is about as heavy a load as you want to get for a close quarters weapon. This paticular model is their "snag free" design. It has no shell deflector, dust cover, or forward assist.
