Chambered in 5.56 x 45 NATO, the CAR 816 A2 is a tactical weapon originally designed for use in law enforcement and military applications. The CAR816 A2 is available in semi-automatic and select fire configurations with a short-stroke push rod gas piston operating system. The gas system is controlled by an adjustable gas valve with three positions. Position one is for normal operation. Position two is for operation in adverse conditions, low impulse ammunition, or when the system becomes fouled. Position three is for normal operation with an affixed sound suppressor and allows for reliable cycling of the action. The CAR816 A2 is available in various barrel lengths including 10.5” CQB, 14.5” Carbine and 16” Infantry Rifle.
The CAR816 A2 is designed and engineered to provide unmatched reliability in the most adverse conditions. Tested and qualified to provide continued reliable operation in the harshest conditions, the rifle exceeds the specifications of “Over the Beach” testing protocols, as well as catastrophic obstructed bore testing procedures.
The rifle is equipped with a proprietary hand guard that allows the end user to configure the rifle for specific mission needs using the M-Lok attachment system.
The CAR816 A2 is shipped with a Quick Detach (QD) sling, a cleaning kit, one 30-round steel/polymer magazine, and front and rear flip-up sights. The upper receiver and hand guard provide a full length 1913 picatinny rail for direct mounting of optics and other accessories such as the Wilcox Industries RAPTAR, which can be mounted directly to the hand guard by way of a ¼-20 direct thread to reduce the height over bore of the system and reduce interference with the optics.
MSRP for the CAR816 A2 is $1,850.00 and is backed by limited lifetime warranty, which covers the rifle from all material and workmanship defects for the life of the rifle under the ownership of the original end user. The CAR816 A2 is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A.
