The "sveltest" AR.
In the October 2016 issue, Rock River Arms's AR is not quite the "sveltest" AR available! It is almost 1 pound heavier than my Christensen Arms VTAC 15!
Check out the VTAC 15, a standard manufactured AR, not a "custom" rifle. Weight: 5.3 pounds; full-length Picatinny rail; 2to 2.5-pound, crisp, no-creep trigger; 45-degree short/quick throw on/off safety, not the standard 90-degree throw; carbon-fiber-wrapped stainless-steel barrel; Wilde multi-caliber chamber; 30-round magazine; five-pocket soft carry case, etc.
A little pricey at $2,300, but I needed/ wanted one AR for self-defense, and this one fits my bill!
