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 a ambi charging handle.  The next upgrade came in the form of weight reduction on the font end.  We made some weight improvements on our all new GEN3 SPR/15 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 GEN3 is built on a ridged Carbine rifle platform with improved lower components to make it an incredibly versatile rifle. The SPR-16 Carbine is equipped with a 16″ QPQ vanadium alloy steel barrel (for weight reduction), an improved SPR/15 GEN3 MLOK Handguard with a SILENCERCO ASR muzzle to give it that aggressive stance. Fully furnished with B5 furniture, and 30 round capacity magazines. The TYPE-A SPR-16 Carbine Rifles is driven by our TYPE-A QPQ coated bolt carrier group w/R.E.M. Polish.  It’s also equipped with a DGI (direct gas impingement) system and our new 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 finish vs. the raw aluminum surface.  Just another added benefit making your rifle….TYPE-A.
