Standard A2 AR15 is much too long and heavy for many new shooters, especially teenagers and smaller-statured women. The wonderful modularity of AR rifles means all these problems can be addressed. I had this rifle built specifically for training newbies. Flat top means that I can add a red dot to help shooters who are cross-eye dominant.
Light tone was picked so that the rifle wouldn’t heat up in the sun. Short length of pull fixed stock and fixed front sight were both picked for strength, the large sling adapter on the front also acts as the support hand protector. Light profile barrel limits sustained fire capability, but most hunting or self-defense situations are resolved in fewer than 60-80 rounds this barrel can fire rapidly without overheating. This rifle makes a good candidate for a .22 conversion kit for the youngest shooters.
And speaking of .22 conversions, here’s DSC patrol carbine with CMMG .22 kit.
