Coronado Arms announced the introduction of the CA-15 Competition Rifle and Competition Carbine. The guns have a .223 Wylde chamber, Geissele triggers and a variety of Magpul parts. The rifle uses an 18″ barrel with an 1:8″ twist. The carbine drops to a 16″ barrel.
Coronado Arms uses a special upper that is about 3″ longer than typical for mounting of standard Picatinny scope rings. Additionally, the case deflector has been modified to better direct fired cases away from the shooter when shooting from the left shoulder.
And in case you are wondering… The colored base plates on the magazines are the company’s magazine extensions. The extensions are designed for third generation PMAG magazines. They add five rounds to the total capacity. Made of aluminum, the additional weight helps ensure fast ejection of the mag in competition.
