1 in stock

SKU: Type-A_TMRE556145CP-BLK Categories: ,


In the early 2000’s Knights Armament came out with their MRE rail to help alleviate the need for more rail space for attachments. The MRE rail was adopted by Delta Force and other groups in the special operations community. The MRE was an early adaptation to the standard service rifle and is an important part of firearm history when it comes to the evolution of the AR15 in military history.

This TYPE-A M4A1 MRE is built on an accurate Long Rifle platform with proven mil-spec components to make it an incredibly versatile rifle. The MRE Rifle is equipped with a 14.5″ cold hammer forged barrel and Surefire Warcomp to bring the overall length of the barrel over 16″.  This rifle is also equipped with a Knights Armament MRE (Modular Receiver Extension) Rail & CAR-15 style furniture. The TYPE-A MRE Rifle is driven by the TYPE-A QPQ bolt carrier group w/R.E.M Polish along with a DGI (direct gas impingement) system. The new TYPE-A PMC Straight 2-stage trigger gives the weapon system consistent reliability time after time.
