The R-15 VTR modular repeating rifle was born of the most advanced design aspects of AR-15-style rifles available today with a strong emphasis on optimizing form and functionality for the modern predator aficionado. For peak accuracy, the R-15's 0.680" OD barrel is precision-crafted from ChroMoly steel. It's free-floated within the machined-aluminum forend tube and given a recessed hunting crown to ensure gasses escape evenly around the bullet for the ultimate in shot-to-shot consistency. Six longitudinal flutes forward of the gas block promote rapid barrel cooling and increase rigidity while reducing weight, further contributing to this rifle's ability to print tiny clusters at an incredible pace. The hunting single-stage trigger design is as cleanbreaking as they come and the semi-automatic gas action all but eliminates muzzle jump and recoil so your target remains in the crosshairs. Control comes naturally with the ergonomic pistol grip and lightweight overall design of the R-15. Its uppers and lowers are machined from aluminum forgings for featherweight durability, and the fore-end tube is drilled and tapped for accessory rails. The rifle was designed with input from leading predator authorities and decked in the ultra-effective Advantage MAX-1 HD camouflage to blend with sage, open country and a multitude of hunting terrains. The R-15 Predator Carbine CS handles like lightning with its 18" barrels and weighs a mere 6 3/4 pounds, perfect for high-speed hunting scenarios. The Predator Carbine CS also features a telescoping stock with a fully adjustable length of pull for a custom fit and a picatinny rail for adding optics and includes a 5-round magazine and a lockable hard case.
