Brownells 75th Anniversary - A Shooting Heritage

A Reproduction of Vietnam's Classic Carbine

While not as well-known as the iconic M16A1 used by thousands in Vietnam, the XBRN177E2® Carbine was a less-cumbersome model based on the AR platform that was commonly issued to Special Operations forces during the war. The Brownells XBRN177E2® AR-15 Rifle is a true, faithful reproduction of this iconic design.

The Brownells XBRN177E2® AR-15 Rifle doesn't rely on the surplus market for production, having been built with all-new parts. The gun comes equipped with a true-to-form polymer CAR buttstock, XM177 flash hider and a phosphate bolt-carrier group.

  • Chambered in 5.56 NATO 
  • Overall length: 34 inches
  • Weight: 5 lbs 13oz
  • Includes one 20-round magazine

The Brownells XBRN177E2® AR-15 Rifle also provides enthusiasts with the standard gray-anodized receiver, as well as a 12.7-inch barrel with a pinned and welded muzzle device that meets BATFE regulations.
