We had two things in mind when it came to redesigning the SPR GEN3 Platform; weight reduction and functionality. Our first improvement started with functionality on the lower receiver components. We moved away from standard mil-spec components, upgrading to a ambi billet adjustable 90°/45° short throw fire selector, extended billet magazine release, improved pivot/breakdown pins, and most importantly stainless steel detents/springs/roll pins/trigger pins/etc. Our second functionality improvement came from the upper receiver and since we were on a mission to make this rifle semi ambidextrous, we decided to upgrade to an ambi charging handle. The next upgrade came in the form of weight reduction on the front end. We made some weight improvements on our all new GEN3 SPR/17 handguard by opening up the offsets to accept M-LOK attachments and off-setting an optional 45° QD M-LOK insert towards the backend of the handguard. The last upgrade was to improve the overall gas flow by making improvements to our gas management system from front to back.
This TYPE-A SPR-16 450 is built on an accurate Carbine Rifle platform with proven mil-spec components to make it an incredibly versatile rifle. The SPR-16 Carbine upper is equipped with a heavy Mod HBAR 16″ 416R Stainless Steel barrel (for improved accuracy) and a full 15″ free float rail (M-LOK – GEN3) with a Silencerco ASR muzzle brake to mitigate muzzle rise. The TYPE-A SPR-16 upper is driven by our TYPE-A QPQ coated bolt carrier group w/R.E.M. Polish. This BCG is both Colt and Glock compatible. It’s also equipped with our improved TYPE-A PMC Straight 2-stage trigger to give it consistent reliability time after time.
NOTE: All of our rifles are Hardcoat Anodized and then Cerakoted to give you a longer lasting more durable finish. We wanted your rifle to wear to the anodized surface vs. the raw aluminum surface like some of our competitors. Just another added benefit making our rifles…TYPE-A.
