If you've been wanting a 14.5" barrel AR15 with a comp permanently attached so you wouldn't have to pay the feds $200 for a tax stamp, then we've saved you a lot of time and trouble. We took our custom 16" CPWSA barrel, had it professionally cut down to 14.5", re-threaded, re-crowned, and had a Lantac Dragon Advanced Muzzle Brake permanently attached.
We've done all the work for you to ensure these barrels meet ATF requirements for permanently attached muzzle devices. As per ATF Handbook Chapter 2, measurement of at least 16" is from the closed bolt or breech face, and the comp/brake is attached via the blind pin method with the pin head welded over. (See Picture).
The 14.5" Ultimate Carbine features a JP Rifles forged upper and lower receiver. The lower receiver has the CPWSA logo laser etched in it for brand recognition purposes, and to let everyone know you've got a race horse that's ready to run. The Ultimate Carbine sports a CMC 3.5 pound flat trigger secured with JP oversize anti-walk pins. Additional features on the lower are a JP Buffer Spring, Arredondo oversize magazine release, and Magpul MOE trigger guard and grip. A Bravo Company Gunfighter adjustable stock allows for a comfortable, consistent, and uniform cheek weld from either strong side or weak side positions. Multiple sling mounting options in the stock make for the quick and easy addition of a sling when needed.
The JP Rifles upper receiver features a 13" Viking Tactics Alpha Battlerail, CPWSA logo etched ejection port cover, Lantac Dragon Advanced Muzzle Brake permanently attached as per ATF guidelines, JP Rifles black stainless or polished stainless low mass bolt carrier group and JP bolt, and Syrac Ordnance Generation II adjustable gas block. The Syrac adjustable gas block will be adjusted by us to soften the recoil impulse as much as possible while still maintaining complete reliability. The Syrac is the only adjustable gas block that has defined, repeatable adjustments, with a locking detent to prevent your settings from getting changed accidentally or moving under recoil.
Here's some additional specs on the barrel: .875" before the gas block, .750 at the gas block, then .725 to the muzzle. Black phosphate finished, fluted, 14.5" long, (16.25" including permanently affixed Lantac Dragon Advanced Muzzle Brake), mid-length gas, .081" gas port, 1 in 9 twist, with M4 ramps and 5.56 NATO chambered. Fluting both before and after the gas block facilitates cooling and reduces weight. The mid-length gas system softens the recoil impulse over a standard carbine length gas system; and the chamber and 1 in 9 twist rate allows shooters to use standard XM193 or other readily available 55 gr. ball ammunition.
This 14.5" Ultimate Carbine weighs 6 pounds, 10 ounces without sights or optic, so it's really light and maneuverable. It's perfect for those fast 3 Gun Nation stages, or local club matches where shots over 300 yards are not required. We recommend the 16" barrel version of our Ultimate Carbine for matches where shots over 300 yards are required. I have a 16" Ultimate Carbine Upper ready that allows me to easily swap between the 14.5" and 16" barrel depending on the match I'm shooting.
Modifications to the above configuration can be discussed if you have something different in mind. The rifle can also be outfitted with a Burris PEPR scope mount and either a Burris MTAC 1-4 or Bushnell 1-4 AR Optic for an additional fee. The price for the 14.5"Ultimate Carbine as configured above is $1995 without scope or mount.
