Catch a New STD Rifle


While many people are out catching some digital critter with the Pokemon Go game, Standard Manufacturing Company hopes you catch one of their new STD rifles. The company is offering two versions of the new semi-auto guns: a Model A and a Model B.

The STD-15 rifles are basic AR-15 pattern guns using a gas impingement system and a variety of commonly sized parts. One nice feature on both models is the availability of left handed versions at no additional cost.

According to the company, the STD-15 rifles are “geared towards left handed users, sporting enthusiasts and avid long distance hunters.” Here’s a look at the specs and features on each model:

Model A

  • 16″ 4150 CMV barrel with a government profile and 1:9″ twist
  • low profile gas block with short length of Picatinny rail for a front sight
  • carbine length gas system
  • A2 flash hider
  • polymer M-LOK compatible handguard (not identified as a Magpul product)
  • anodized upper and lower
  • standard charging handle
  • SB Nitride bolt carrier group
  • six position adjustable buttstock (appears to be the Safariland SuperStoc)
  • MSRP: $999 without add ons

Model B


  • 16″ 4150 CMV barrel with government profile and 1:9″ twist
  • low profile gas block and carbine length system
  • YHM Phantom flash hider
  • extruded aluminum KeyMod compatible handguard
  • manual folding sights
  • anodized upper and lower
  • standard charging handle
  • SB Nitride bolt carrier group
  • Mission First Tactical Minimalist stock
  • MSRP: $1,199 without add ons

The company says the rifles come in a protective case that stacks better than other designs.

In addition to the STD rifles, the company makes the DP line of shotguns. Last year, GY6 posted a video that showed the DP-12 shotgun would not properly feed when pumped straight up and down. Has anyone else experienced this malfunction?

    Comes with a 20 round box of penicillin.

    • thedonn007

      Well, it does come in a protective case.

      • M.M.D.C.

        I don’t know how they thought the name would be interpreted any other way. Let’s clear up the confusion:

          I sure hope this STD rifle is a better lover than Mary-Jane Rottencrotch. :

          • M.M.D.C.

            Those days are OVER!

    • Marcus D.

      So we are all agreed: this is a rifle to avoid at all costs, especially if you are married or in a long term relationship.

    Geared towards “avid long distance hunters” and comes with a 1:9 twist barrel?

    • Anonymoose

      There is absolutely no advantage to a 1:9 .223/5.56 other than being cheaper, but since “long distance hunters” with AR15s might actually see 55gr as their upper limit (and varmintsploder bullets rarely get heavier), 1:9 is okay.

    STD is the akronym for the Swedish word “studsare” (hunting rifle in 6.5×55 or greater). Gives me a smile every time I look at any paper work related to my guns.

      Are you trash talking Triple K?;-)

    • kbroughton77

      Followed by the new Iron Sight Integration System. When you optic fails, ISIS keeps you on target

    • Lee Attiny

      The #BallisticLaserModule is worthless. The design is completely based on false science and serves no purpose but people keep buying them anyway.

  • Big Daddy

    Just what we need another overpriced low level AR15.

  • Sianmink

    Is it just me or does it look kinda unbalanced? Like, it would be fine with a lower profile stock, probably.

    • Anonymoose


    • Dare I say it looks a little.. bumpy? 😛

  • iksnilol



    Okay, I am convinced they do this on purpose. Nobody can be *that* innocent and pure.

  • Justin Roney

    Definitely don’t want to catch them all.

  • Michael Edwards

    This is just a copy of the old VD-15.

    • Ergo

      the 308 is going to be called the drip

  • Isaac FluffyWolf Rader

    Well, I guess I do need protection…

  • SD

    A $500 rifle marketed at $1000. Good work.
