2A Armament Releases the ARL-16 Rifle

2A Armament

Proven Performance, One of a Kind Style from the Trusted ALR-16

Boise, ID – (ArmsVault.com) – The ALR-16 is like a prize fighter that talks big and backs it up with consecutive titles. Built on the AR15 platform, it offers unique styling and performance that has made it a trusted anchor in the 2A Armament lineup.

2A Armament ARL-16

As with any 2A product, the quality of machining sets an exceptionally high bar for quality and design. The ALR-16 is finely tuned with a billet flared mag-well, CNC machined upper receiver and a Full Mass Bolt Carrier that has a uniquely machined body using QPQ process.

The Aetheon Handguard styling along with QD mounts on the lower receiver round out the design, making this one of the sharpest looking rifles on the market. At a mere 5 pounds 4 ounces, the reaction time and ability to carry the rifle for long periods of time with minimal fatigue is unmatched while still delivering a high performance, stable shooting platform.

2A Armament machines and manufactures every component right in Idaho. The team is proud to not only manufacture the ALR-16 in the USA but like every model, it is designed, tested and refined to perfection by firearm loving Americans. The love, sweet and effort behind each rifle is enjoyed by loyal 2A customers around the country.
