Ambidextrous Lower Receiver
Places controls where they can be operated without modifying the shooting grip, right or left-handed.
RapidQD Quick Detach Handguard
Attaches to the upper receiver to isolate the barrel and provide maximum rigidity. The positive interface with the barrel provides enhanced longitudinal rigidity and anti-rotational rigidity. Minimal thermal contact points for reduced thermal transmission of barrel chamber heat and resulting thermal signature.
Bench rest grade 416R Trident barrel using our proprietary extreme fluting profile optimizes weight, rigidity, and cooling. It achieves maximum sustained accuracy in a lightweight barrel.
Provides approximately 300% more surface cooling area than a standard AR barrel, pulling heat rapidly from the core of the barrel.
Tested to provide consistent Sub-MOA accuracy with 77gr SMK match-grade ammunition.
VF18 – Vent Forward Brake
The most advanced muzzle device on the market. The VF18 redirects the blast away from the shooter and prevents muzzle rise. Blast diversion, recoil reduction, flash suppression, and muzzle neutral compensation in one device make the AR-X LightFighter shoot flat, stay on target during rapid engagement, and reduce felt recoil dramatically.
Fixed Tunable Gas Block
Provides 3 customized regulating inserts that can be easily changed out in the field. If the shooter is running suppressed, normal kit, or light ammo they will obtain precise external gas adjustment for the AR-X with no change in gas as seen in adjustable gas blocks.
Eliminates turbulence and fouling of typical impingement designs.
Regulating rods are user changeable allowing for user customization.
JACKAL-X Ambidextrous Charging Handle
Combat Derived, The Jackal-X doesn’t snag on gear and come out where it can be bent and broken. Levers won’t break off from hard use. Smooth linear operation with no binding. The unique head design keeps gas from being blown in the shooter’s face.
7075 Aerospace Aluminum with Type 3 hard anodize
For rapid mag changes.
