2A Armament is recognized as a maker of high-quality, lightweight AR-style rifles, along with components and accessories for customized builds. In fact, innovation is one of the company’s core values, as shown by its BLR-16 and XLR-20 rifles.
The BLR-16, 2A Armament’s flagship rifle, weighing a mere 5 pounds. It features Balios Lite Gen 2 receiver set and M-LOK handguards and comes with a Cerakoted KUIU Vias 2.0 pattern.
Both the upper and lower receivers on the Balios Lite are CNC machined from 7075-T6 billet aluminum for durability and weight reduction. The lower receiver comes with a flared mag well, a rear tensioning screw and takedown spring retainer, and a screw-in bolt-catch pin. The upper features a “slick side” mil-spec port door and a retained port door rod – no E-clip to lose – as well as M-4 feed ramps.
The 16-inch “pencil-profile” barrel is made of 416-R stainless steel and is chambered for 5.56 NATO, with 1 in 8 rifling for accuracy. The BLR-16 also comes with a mid-length gas system that features a titanium gas block.
Other features include a mil-spec eight-position buttstock with a standard H-buffer, a titanium T3 compensator, MAGPUL grip, a Mission First minimalist stock and an ALG-ACT trigger group with a choice of heavy or light hammer spring.
As the big brother of the BLR-16, the XLR-20 continues to showcase the innovation of 2A Armament, as this lightweight tips the scales at only 6.85 pounds fully assembled for comfortable all-day carry. Best of all the XLR-20 is chambered for the popular 6.5 Creedmoor round.
The XLR-20 is also CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum, and comes with many of the same features as the BLR-16, such as retained port door rod, flared mag well, “slick side” design and a titanium gas block. In addition, the XLR-20 comes with a rifle-length gas system and a 20-inch barrel made of 4150 steel, also with 1 in 8-inch rifling. It features a .308 X4 steel muzzle brake, BCM-Gunfighter 762 mod 3 charging handle and a CMC two-stage flat trigger set at 2 pounds. Even better the XLR-20 is available in two cerakote KUIU camo options – Verde 2.0 and Vias 2.0- and a mil-spec eight-position buttstock.
Both 2A Armament KUIU rifles come with one 10-round magazine and a die-cut foam box, along with a commitment to exceptional craftsmanship and quality provided by an American company.
