Rock River Arms Law Enforcement ARs

Rock River Arms PDS (Piston Driven System) Carbine is available in two different configurations: 16-inch barrel and 8-inch barrel. First introduced in semi-auto, the PDS Carbine is supposed to be available in a select fire version this year. Available accessories include additional stocks, tri-rail handguards, sights, and optic mounts. Rock River is also expanding its Law Enforcement series ARs to include a 6.8 SPC model, as well as a Short Barrel Rifle (SBR) version.

SIG Sauer SIG556 Patrol Rifle

The SIG 556 Patrol Rifle is available in a tapered profile model or a quad-rail SWAT model. Features on this AR include an adjustable folding stock, a two-position adjustable gas valve, a military grade barrel, and an A2 flash suppressor. The upper receiver is finished in Nitron, the lower is hard coat anodized aluminum. Barrel length is 16 inches with a 1-in-7-inch twist.

Sturm, Ruger & Co. New Rifles

Ruger announced two new law enforcement rifles late last year. In August, the company announced a new version of its SR-556 chambered in 6.8 SPC. The SR-556/6.8 is an AR-style rifle with two-stage piston operation and a four-position gas regulator. Features include a chrome-lined, hammer-forged barrel, Troy industries Folding Battlesights, quad rail and rail covers, Hogue Monogrip, and a six-position stock. Introduced in September, the Ruger Mini Thirty Tactical Rifle is an update of a gun that debuted 20 years ago. The new Mini Thirty is chambered for 7.62 x 39mm ammunition and features a black synthetic stock that cuts its empty weight to 6.75 pounds.
