Since 2017, Pioneer Arms Corp. (PAC) company has been developing and implementing production of AR-pattern rifle for .223 Remington /5,56×45 mm ammunition (AR from Radom, 2018-02-23). As MILMAG found out, the rifle will be marketed under the PAC-15 designation. The ARs` from Radom will be available in numerous variants, differing in barrel lengths and additional accessories.
The first production run is considered by PAC as an experiment. Two hundred rifles will be manufactured in this batch and interested buyers will be able to purchase the PAC-15 with very short barrels, rail systems and adjustable stocks. A 508-mm (20-inch) barreled variant with a polymer handguard and a fixed stock will also be available. This model is designed to resemble the standard US Army M16 assault rifle.
All PAC-15 variants will operate the original gas system, designed at the end of the 1950s` for AR-15. The exhaust gases are fed, via a long and thin tube, into the bolt carrier which serves as both gas chamber and gas piston. PAC-15 rifles will consist of elements conforming to the Mil-Spec standards.
