GRINNELL, Iowa –-(AmmoLand.com)- Brownells announced a pair of exclusive clone rifles at TriggrCon 2018 in Bellevue, Washington, partnering with Aero Precision to offer authentic copies of the M4 Carbine and the M16A4 Rifle chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO.
The rifles went live for pre-orders on the Brownells website Saturday, July 29, 2018, and will be shipping to customers by September.
Built in the spirit of the popular Brownells Retro Rifles, the clone rifles are intended to be the closest-possible reproductions of well-known military firearms that can be widely owned by civilians.
“Much like the Brownells Retro Rifles, the Aero Precision M4 Carbine and M16A4 Rifle will resonate with those who may have carried them in military service, as well as those interested in such firearms,” said Brownells Director of Product Management Paul Levy. “Both rifles are unique milestones in the development of Eugene Stoner’s original design, and are built to the high quality and reliability standards we have come to know from Aero Precision.”
The M4 Carbine clone is semi-automatic only, and has the correct M4 RAS rail from Knight’s Armament along with military-issue rail covers and KAC vertical grip.
