Creedmoor Unveils AiR-15

OCEANSIDE, Calif. - Creedmoor Sports's new AR-style air rifle is the first gun certified for the CMP's new National Match Air Rifle discipline. The first Creedmoor prototype was recently unveiled at a test competition in Anniston, Alabama.

"This rifle is the ultimate training device for service rifle competition" says Creedmoor General Manager Dennis DeMille. "It will allow competitors to practice all aspects of service rifle in the privacy of one's home."

The AiR-15 combines an Anschutz 8001 junior barreled action with the patent-pending Creedmoor AiR stock kit. The stock kit includes the receiver sleeve, forend (with sling swivel, air cylinder, alignment hanger), butt stock, carry handle with National Match rear sight (1/4 min), and a National Match front sight.

The rifle uses compressed air and shoots up to 130 shots per refill. The cylinder is filled using just a normal scuba tank. It takes less than 10 seconds to refill once the cylinder is screwed off and attached to the scuba tank.

The stock kit may also be purchased separately for those wishing to convert their existing 8001 or 8002 Anschütz rifles into an NMAR rifle

The rifle replicates the length of pull, sight radius, height of rear sight from the comb of the stock, the distance from the butt stock to the rear sight, distance from the butt stock to the front sling swivel, magazine dimensions and the height of the front sight of the AR-15 rifle. Weight: 10 lbs. Price: $1975.
