When the first Star 15 patrol rifle was released some three years ago, DoubleStar president Teresa Starnes told the press: "The design was derived from extensive interviews with front line police officers. The consensus reached was a lightweight package readily adaptable to almost every situation." The Star 15 Patrol Rifle is built on an A-1 configuration with a one-in-nine twist barrel. Capable of MOA accuracy, the Star 15 Patrol Rifle has a phantom flash hider, a YHM four-rail hand guard, a GG&G flip-up MAD rear sight, a Hogue rubber pistol grip, and a DSC six-position M4 buttstock. Available upgrades include a chrome-lined barrel, a two-stage trigger, an H buffer, and a bipod.
