    Here’s Red Arrow Weapons’ full announcement about the rifle:

    It’s no secret that there are endless options when it comes to setting up an AR15. The platform has more flexibility than any other firearm category, yet when a premium package is put together, it’s hard to deny. More than just a kit, the RAW15 package in .223/5.56 is a system set up for a wide range of shooting applications and for an even broader shooter profile. At the forefront of this high-touch system is a free floating 16” Chrome Moly, hard-coated barrel with a 1:8 twist rate. Wrapped around that barrel is a 15” M-Lok Rail system mated to an A3 flat top forged 7075 Aluminum upper receiver. The lower foundation of the firearm also happens to be a forged 7075 T-6 lower receiver.

    Be the envy of the range with the RAW15 available in midnight bronze or the Red Arrow standard black with red accents. And with the RAW15 in .223/5.56 you can enjoy a gun that shoots even better than it looks. A 3.5 lbs CMC single-stage trigger eagerly awaits your trigger finger and the mid-length gas system with a shot-peened, magnetic particle inspected Mil-Spec 8620 bolt carrier group will keep you operating pull after pull.

    High performance is the name of the game with the RAW15 packages from Red Arrow Weapons. The .223/5.56 version is a perfectly capable firearm in a wide range of target shooting, competition, and hunting applications. Take advantage of .223 ballistics, low recoil, and high accuracy with the .223/5.56 RAW15.
