Our friends at FightLite Industries have been working overtime behind the scenes on some really cool new projects. They’ve thrown a couple of teasers out showing a new Pistol Caliber Carbine. Pistol Caliber AR’s are one of the most active parts of the AR market right now. More and more companies are joining that segment and producing their own product but most are just “me too” products. FightLite is a pretty innovative company so its no surprise they weren’t going to just produce a basic product.
Here’s what we know! The three things that stand out the most to me about this setup are …
-1. It’s Caliber convertible at user level….22LR, 9mm, .40S&W, 10mm, .45ACP.
-2. It can use Glock, Beretta, CZ, S&W, Springfield and Sig mags.
-3. It appears it is a side charging upper with the handle positioned right at the front of the upper receiver.
The modularity of Caliber and Magazine compatibility make the possibilities pretty much endless and give the end user the ability to make one build and customize it to fit their current needs. Here are a couple of full auto videos for you to check out. Although it is shown in raw aluminum it will have a anodized finish.
We’ll continue to keep an eye out for additional information regarding this new product and will reach out to FightLite for some exclusive content to share. If you would like to be one of the first to know about FightLite Industry news I would suggest giving them a follow on the FightLite.Industries Instagram Account.

This kit comes with everything you need including a .22lr 16″ barrel, BCG, Charging Handle and Magazine all for just $189.

Is it just me or does it seem like most companies that make a .22lr rifle think the rifle has to be made as cheap as possible? Seems like they assume if you’re shooting .22lr ammo you’re gonna want your gun as bare bones as possible. Thankfully my friends at Rainier Arms don’t think that way. They just released their new Rainier Arms RUC 22 rifle and its gotta be one of the nicest .22lr AR’s I’ve seen. They built the RUC 22 with a lot of the same high quality components that you’ll find on their standard RUC including a Rainier Arms RAPTOR charging handle, forged receivers and FORCE KeyMod rail, Battle Arms Development 45 Degree Short Throw Selector, Mission First Tactical stock and grip and a QD end plate. It comes in amazingly light at just under 5 lbs. Plus its available in both standard Black or a custom Concrete Cerakote color. If you’re having a hankering for a high quality .22lr AR, this is definitely the one to own.
