The MCR quick-change barrel allows users to configure the MCR in seconds without the aid of tools and is available in 12” (NFA Rules Apply) and 16” inch lengths. Furthermore, the MCR features gas-piston operation that provides greater reliability in extreme conditions, and is cleaner, cooler and more reliable in adverse conditions than the legacy direct-gas system

The unique design of the MCR also allows customers to upgrade their existing rifles by simply substituting an ARES supplied MCR upper receiver assembly in place of the legacy upper, which are rearward compatible to the earliest AR15’s from the 1960’s.
