At least that is how I am choosing to believe the conversation went inside Glock HQ as they began producing the Glock GR-115, which is an AR-15. I modernized and well laid out AR-15 with an intriguing optic upon it, to be sure, but an AR-15.
We’ve been hearing rumors of a Glock rifle for years, it appears that someone finally solicited Glock to do their carbine and the result is a very modern AR-15. Ambidextrous lower, LPVO and red dot, suppressor, I believe an adjustable gas system, and all in the modern tan low vis finished that do better both visibly and under alternative spectrum observation devices, thermals and NODS, ended capped with a can.
Glock perfection is apparently Stoner and Sullivan inspired.
I don’t know if this one is a piston or DI design, I am also not particularly bothered knowing until and unless this becomes a contract gun somewhere neat with more details or we get a domestic launch here in the US at SHOT or NRAAM.
I am very intrigued by the scope, the rumor mill around that piece of glass is that it really is something hot in the LPVOsphere and I have been intrigued by challengers to the Razor III’s current top seat every time I hear about them. So of all things I want to know about this carbine, the carbine itself really isn’t the priority compared to whatever is riding in that AUS from Reptilia.
Anyway, Glock confirmed makes an AR now. So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.
