Patriot Defense proudly present the 16″ AR-15 Duty Gun, chambered in a 223/556 (1:7 twist for heavy bullets on our ALPHA Platform).
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.
Our duty guns are offered in 2 different model configurations to give our customers the options and choices they deserve when purchasing a tier 1 AR platform rifle.
ALPHA Platform– This weapon system is designed for all shooters no matter what their background or experience level is. The heart of this weapon utilizes our precision machined upper/lower receivers, Chrome Moly Vanadium Steel barrel, .223 Wylde, 1:7 twist, carbine gas length, and 16” M4 profile barrel. The barrel is “nitride finished” both inside and out giving you the most protection for the heart of your rifle. .223 Wylde is a hybrid of the .223 REM and 5.56. .223 Wylde has a chamber throat that is tighter than the 5.56 achieving better accuracy but still reliably functional with 5.56 ammunition. Its Bolt and Carrier group features 9310 Bolt Material; 8620 Chrome lined carrier and gas key; properly staked investment cast gas key hardened to USGI specifications fastened with hardened grade 8 fasteners; shot peened MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) bolt. Extractor O-Ring upgrade with black Insert. The ALPHA model is finished out with a Magpul MOE 6-postion adjustable stock, grip, and Odin works 15.5” keymod free-float rail system.

BRAVO Platform- The heart of our Bravo Duty Gun platform utilizes an Odin works 416 stainless, mid-length gas system barrel, with a 1-8 twist, and Wylde chambering. This system offers an upgraded NIB-X BCG for the shooters who demand more out of their weapon system. .223 Wylde is a hybrid of the .223 REM and 5.56. .223 Wylde has a chamber throat that is tighter than the 5.56 achieving better accuracy but still reliably functional with 5.56 ammunition. The barrels are threaded for and furnished with a pinned barrel extension with proper head-space, gas port hole drilled, and finished with a target crown at the muzzle. The muzzle end is also threaded 1/2″ x 28 TPI to accept standard .223/556 caliber suppressors or muzzle brake devices. Our AR-15 Bolt and Carrier Systems are treated with nickel boron (NIB-X), a revolutionary surface technology that provides permanent dry lubricity. This radically improves the performance of your AR-15 and eliminates the need to apply oil or grease to treated parts as regularly for the life of the weapon. Treated parts include; Bolt, Semi-Auto Bolt Carrier, Semi-Auto Hammer, Extractor, Cam Pin, Carrier Key and Firing Pin. Comes in custom fitted hard case.
