The R-15’s fixed buttstock was the standard A2 style.
The free-float aluminum handguard was checkered for better grip. No problems with it.
Fit and finish on the rifle were consistently good, save for slight looseness between the upper and lower receivers. The trigger wasn’t particularly good with a break weight of 7.6 pounds.
The black-oxide finish was evenly applied on all the metal surfaces, including the flutes in the barrel. The barrel was a medium-contour diameter.
