Remington R-15 VTR

A new product announced earlier by Remington, but not released until the SHOT Show is the Remington R-15 VTR rifle. What’s that you say? You want pictures? So demanding. Click for large versions. I also have audio on the R-15, a basic summary of the rifle’s features and packages.


The three models availabe are in either .204 Ruger or .223 Remington; you can get a 7.75 lbs rifle with a 22 inch barrel and fixed stock, or 6.75 lbs rifle with an 18 inch barrel and either a fixed stock or a collapsible stock. I probably dry fired the display rifles a dozen or so times, the one thing I couldn’t get over was the trigger. I’ve fired standard M16s, match grade ARs, and a lot of guns in general. For an out of the box production gun, the R-15 VTR has a great trigger. Smooth take-up with a crisp break, even just messing around at the booth the break would surprise me some times.

I might have mentioned in the past that I don’t own any AR rifles, and there was (I thought) a good reason for that; although in recent times it’s faded quite a bit. I’ve been asking around for a bit about what to buy and from where, I’ve been told that I should build one from kits, buy my lower at place X and my upper at place Y, just had a lot of information thrown at me.

Remington’s R-15 really simplifies the equation for me. It’s an AR style rifle in the caliber I want, with the barrel length that I want, and I actually kind of enjoy the camouflage look.
