The AR-15 was originally designed as a lightweight rifle for the U.S. military. A version was adopted in 1963, weighing only 7.9 pounds with a loaded 30-round magazine. Today, an unloaded AR-15 style rifle typically weighs around 6.5 pounds. However, that is still 1.5-pounds heavier than 2A Armament’s flagship rifle – the BLR-16.
2A Armament combine the use CNC machines, high quality grade aluminum, titanium and a state-of-the-art in-house design team to manufacture the lightest AR-15 rifles and components available to shooters. From hand-assembled rifles in .22 LR, 5.56, 6.5 Creedmoor and 7.62, to their top of the line uppers, lowers, handguards, etc.; 2A Armament pushes the envelope in innovation and quality, unlike any other rifle manufacturer in the industry.
2A Armament also produces conversion bolt carriers for swapping to .22 LR, and titanium parts for reducing weight on current rifles, as well as barrels, rails, gas blocks and other accessories, so shooters can customize their rifles as they see fit.
In addition to the extremely light weight, all 2A Armament rifles and parts benefit from thoughtful design so that the end user can fully maximize 2A Armament components for custom builds.
2A armament offers shooters the high-quality, lightweight rifles that are sure to perform for the mountain scaling hunter to the lightning fast 3-gun shooter. In addition to its lightweight advantage, 2A Armament rifles are extremely flat shooting with extremely limited muzzle rise for accurate and fast repeat shots. These two traits are very rarely seen together in other AR platforms, but 2A Armament considers these as a cornerstone of product development, design and functionality.
