    Remington R15 !Carbine!

    Great little AR my favourite series, around 6.5 pound with the 18 inch barrel. Single stage hunting trigger. Very little use.

    Light fluted barrel and still punches 5 rounds into an inch square at 100 yards.

    Acat licence required.
    Comes Threaded for suppressor. But not included.

    $2100

    Comes with a five round clip but slightly different to the one pictured, it only looks bigger as it's not pushed all the way in.

    Um, think you'll find you can't now sell that to an A cat licencee in that configuration. Only to an E holder with a permit to procure. The amnesty period until 11 June 2014 allows you to shift it as an A cat only if you first revert it to the new A compliant state. After that, it must be in the possession of an E licencee, or in A cat config.

    Yep, Ray is right.

    So I gather the work around is to take the pistol grip off (which looks like an A2 grip in the first place I must say) and 'dispose' of it, ie no longer in your posession before you sell it under A-cat.

    And, IMO, selling it minus a handgrip renders it incomplete, unable to be handled/used/controlled properly therefore just a collection of parts with a value as such...

    For an AR ignoramus, what is the purpose of the little loop on the bottom of that mag ?

    It's a mag pull, the original Magpul product (funny that), made to aid extraction from a magazine pouch, can also be used to help monopodding off the mag.

    Oh man yawn.

    I not need a flame suit as it sold about ten minutes after I listed it. And what's a P mag??

    I do have another AR which has had 300 rounds thru it for $1900 if anyone's interested.
