While not as well-known as the iconic M16A1 used by thousands in Vietnam, the XBRN177E2® Carbine was a less-cumbersome model based on the AR platform that was commonly issued to Special Operations forces during the war. The Brownells XBRN177E2® AR-15 Rifle is a true, faithful reproduction of this iconic design.
The Brownells XBRN177E2® AR-15 Rifle doesn't rely on the surplus market for production, having been built with all-new parts. The gun comes equipped with a true-to-form polymer CAR buttstock, XM177 flash hider and a phosphate bolt-carrier group.
Chambered in 5.56 NATO
Overall length: 34 inches
Weight: 5 lbs 13oz
Includes one 20-round magazine
The Brownells XBRN177E2® AR-15 Rifle also provides enthusiasts with the standard gray-anodized receiver, as well as a 12.7-inch barrel with a pinned and welded muzzle device that meets BATFE regulations.
The Brownells XBRN177E2® Carbine is an homage to the classic carbine used by US troops in Vietnam.
The XM177E2 is one of the culmination of several efforts to shorten the AR-15 platform in the 1960s. Featuring the distinctive XM177 "Moderator" and CAR buttstock, these carbines are much handier than the rifle length AR-15 variants. The XM177E2 was commonly issued to Special Operation units, making it a highly desired firearm. The XM177E2 shares its core components, the bolt carrier group & receivers with the M16A1.
The new Brownells XBRN177E2® is built from completely new production components, no surplus parts. The rifle features the original style furniture, A1 flash hider and mil-spec phosphate/chrome bolt carrier group.
