Bushmaster Adds 308 Win Chambering to Carbine Line-Up
First Offering is ORC (Optics Ready Carbine).
Windham, ME –-(AmmoLand.com)- Bushmaster’s offering of a 308 chambered carbine is another step in the continuing evolution of the AR platform and an exciting addition to the growing line of Bushmaster AR-15 style rifles.
The Bushmaster 308 ORC (Optics Ready Carbine) in the venerable 308 Win chambering provides law enforcement agencies with additional firepower and longer range capabilities.
The ORC comes from the factory with two ½-inch scope riser blocks for the shooter that wishes to mount an aftermarket optic to this 308 powerhouse. The riser blocks, which are mounted to the receiver length Picatinny optics rail, provide enough clearance above the upper receiver so the natural cheek weld aligns the shooter’s eye directly behind his chosen optic.
This heavy-hitting, mid-range carbine comes with midlength gas system and a milled gas block that is mounted to a heavy-profile, 16-inch 4150 Chrom-Moly Vanadium chrome lined barrel and chamber which is capped with an A2 style birdcage flash hider.
The heavy oval hand guards are heat-shielded and a six-position telescoping stock gives up to 4 inches of adjustment for the length of pull.
The Bushmaster 308 ORC is shipped with a lockable hard case, operator’s safety manual, yellow safety block and black web sling. Bushmaster’s one year warranty is included. Please visit our website at www.bushmaster.com for complete specifications on the ORC and other Bushmaster rifles.
