The latest model in the Bushmaster Carbon 15 line is the Carbon 15 .22 Rimfire Rifle – designed to closely conform to the look, feel and function of Bushmaster’s traditional 5.56mm/.223 caliber models. A big difference is that the Upper and Lower Receivers, Buttstock and Charging Handle are molded of state of the art Carbon Fiber 15 material that offers incredible durability, strength and ultra-light weight. The C1522LR is chambered for the economical .22 Long Rifle Rimfire cartridge, and operates in a semi-automatic “blowback” mode.
Operational controls (charging handle; safety lever; bolt catch; magazine release and trigger) are functionally and ergonomically identical to all AR15 type rifles/carbines – making the Bushmaster C1522LR an ideal training arm for developing skills with the AR15 type system. In addition, this little lightweight is a ball to shoot, and the .22 Rimfire ammunition is acceptable for use in indoor ranges. It is also a perfect introductory “AR type” rifle for the younger shooter (see our youth buttstock with 2“ shorter trigger pull – Part # AZ15279 – $24.95 on the next page).
The Bushmaster C1522LR features a highly accurate 16” Chromoly barrel, and a “blowback” operating bolt machined from lightweight Titanium. For added safety, the Safety Selector Lever markings are color-coded on both sides of the Lower Receiver to quickly determine the rifle’s firing status. As with other AR15 type models, captivated takedown pins allow Upper and Lower Receiver separation for easy cleaning and lubrication. The iron sights are much like any AR type firearm with a dual rear flip aperture (adjustable for windage), and a square front “post type” sight adjustable for elevation. On the rifle’s Upper Receiver, a Picatinny rail offers easy mounting of any scope, optic, red dot or laser sight.
Completely designed and manufactured in the U.S.A., the C1522LR includes a 10 Round Magazine and Operator’s Manual and ships in a hard plastic carrying case. Warranted for one year against defects in materials or workmanship.
