Watchtower Firearms SPEC OPS Type 15: A High-Precision AR-15
09 Feb 2024
WATCHTOWER Firearms has launched the SPEC OPS Type 15 rifle, a new offering designed for both civilian and law enforcement communities. Combining high-quality components with military-inspired features, the Type 15 promises a compelling package for those seeking a reliable and versatile AR-15 platform.
At the heart of the rifle lies a meticulously crafted receiver set, machined from high-grade aluminum for a rock-solid foundation. This attention to detail extends to the ambidextrous charging handle and WATCHTOWER's patented safety selector, ensuring smooth operation for left- and right-handed users alike.
Performance upgrades abound in the SPEC OPS Type 15. The fire control group gets a boost with Hiperfire's EDT2 Heavy Gunner trigger, known for its crisp single-stage pull. WATCHTOWER's own Tru-Black PVD coated Durabolt BCG adds durability and weather resistance, while the barrel options cater to diverse preferences: choose between a 5.56 NATO or .223 Wylde barrel, both featuring a mid-length gas system for balanced performance.
Further enhancing user experience is the 13.7-inch S7M free-floating handguard, offering ample space for mounting accessories via M-LOK slots and Picatinny rails. WATCHTOWER's Flat Face muzzle brake helps manage recoil, while the B5 B5-reinforced polymer furniture ensures a comfortable and secure grip.
Whether you're a seasoned gun enthusiast or a law enforcement professional seeking a dependable tool, the WATCHTOWER SPEC OPS Type 15 aims to impress with its blend of precision engineering, military heritage, and user-friendly features. Its ability to handle diverse shooting scenarios and perform flawlessly under pressure makes it a serious contender in the AR-15 market.
