Bushmaster Carbon 15 Type 97S Rifle
Of our Carbon 15 models, the Type 97S is the "Top of the Line". At 4.3* pounds, this high tech feather-weight features Receivers, Buttstock and Forend molded of Carbon Fiber material that offers incredible durability, strength and ultra-light weight. Carbon 15 material is unaffected by sunlight, water, oxidation or corrosion, and requires only minimal lubrication.
The Bushmaster Carbon 15 Type 97S Rifle has a fluted, stainless steel, 16" match grade barrel offering light weight, outstanding accuracy, and corrosion resistance. It is fitted with a unique Quick Detach Compensator that reduces muzzle rise and felt recoil. This 1 x 9 rifled barrel is chambered for the powerful 5.56mm NATO Cartridge but also accepts the more common .223 Remington. Barrel fluting - eight deep longitudinal grooves - offers increased cooling and further reduces barrel weight. An optional flashlight or laser mounting attachment is designed to clamp directly to the barrel by means of the fluting grooves (consult your Bushmaster salesperson about this option).
The Type 97S Upper Receiver and Forend features an anodized aluminum Picatinny rail that is the full length of both receiver and forend. It includes integral front and rear iron sights. The windage adjustable Rear Sight is a combination ghost ring and precision 200 yard aperture flip-up. The square post front sight offers elevation adjustments for fine zeroing. The Picatinny rail allows the option of mounting a wide variety of auxiliary sighting systems such as long eye relief or standard scopes, red dot, holographic, or laser sights.
Function controls on the Carbon 15 Type 97S Rifle operate much like standard AR15 type rifles. The exceptions are a unique release lever allowing the removal of the Carbon Fiber buttstock for storage and carrying convenience, and an Ambidextrous Safety Selector Lever. Selector markings are color-coded on both sides of the Lower Receiver for quick firing status checks. The magazine release button, Carbon 15 charging handle and takedown and pivot pins all function like the standard AR15. For ergonomic comfort, the Lower Receiver is fitted with a Hogue OverMolded pistol grip, and the Carbon Fiber Forend is molded in a comfortable oval shape with a non-slip stipple finish.
The Bushmaster C15 Type 97S Rifle is shipped with a Tactical "Multi-Carry Mode" Sling, Operator's Manual, Warranty Card and 30 Round Magazine in Bushmaster's hard plastic, lockable carrying case.
