Melbourne, FL -(AmmoLand.com)- ARES Defense Systems, the country’s leading manufacturer of innovative, mission-configurable firearms, parts and accessories announces that it is exhibiting in Booth 315 this week at the Ellett Brothers annual Dealer Show in Chapin, SC January 5-7, 2016.
In addition, ARES Defense is raffling a free ARES SCR rifle with accessory bolt-catch and adjustable sights package to be given away during the show.
Ellett Brothers, a division of United Sporting Companies is now stocking ARES Defense products including ARES’ patented belt-fed MCR and the groundbreaking ARES SCR rifles. ARES’ MCR – Mission Configurable Rifle; an 8.5 lb weapon featuring gas piston operation, a 3-second quick change barrel system and the capability to feed from both linked ammunition belts and standard box magazines at operator discretion continues to evolve.
As ARES Defense premier rifle offering for the commercial marketplace, the MCR vastly improves upon the standard AR15/M4 by offering exceptional flexibility with its dual-feed capability and quick-change barrel. This flexibility, combined with other unique features, allows users to instantly customize the MCR without tools for virtually any use 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.
The innovative and patented ARES SCR (Sport Configurable Rifle) is the first of its class of firearms to successfully combine the traditional lines of a hunting pattern rifle with the modularity of an AR-15 rifle.
The ARES SCR blends strength, reliability, accuracy and rugged all-weather characteristics of America’s longest serving infantry rifle with the classic lines of an American sporter. Lightweight, accurate and featuring a MIL-STD 1913 flat top upper receiver that accepts most modern optics, the ARES SCR is designed to perform under the most demanding field, competitive shooting or tactical conditions. The multi-caliber, modular design permits the operator to instantly change calibers in the field by simply pressing two pins and exchanging one upper receiver assembly for another.
Designed for optimal configuration, the ARES SCR accepts most Modern Sporting Rifle accessories and parts including magazines, upper receivers, barrels, bolts, handguards and optics, so it can be easily and effectively reconfigured for each individual shooters’ style and activity.
Supported by a full line of performance accessories and manufactured of the highest quality aircraft grade alloys by American craftsmen, the weatherproof and dependable ARES SCR will provide a lifetime of accurate shooting pleasure for all Americans.
