Patriot Defense proudly present the 24″ Competition Ready Carbine, chambered in a 223 Wylde (1:8 twist for heavy bullets).
The Patriot Defense Upper/Lower receiver starts life as a solid block of aerospace grade 7075 T6 aluminum alloy. Precision machined on a 4 axis CNC machine, hand finished and then anodized with type III hard anodize per the military spec.
The heart of our Competition Ready Carbine platform utilizes a Lilja AR740 416 stainless barrel with a 1-8 twist. The .223 version is chambered with a Wylde-type chamber, which shoots both 223 Remington and NATO 5.56mm ammunition. The barrels are threaded for and furnished with a pinned barrel extension with proper headspace, gas port hole drilled and finished with a 11º target crown at the muzzle. The muzzle end is also threaded 1/2″ x 28 TPI to accept standard .223 suppressors or muzzle brake devices. Currently our competition ready carbine are offered in a 20″ and 24″ model on our AR15 platform system.
Total weight (naked) is 6.0 lbs.
