Brownells 75th Anniversary - A Shooting Heritage

New Carry Handle Scope Bases from Brownells® Make AR-15/M16 Rifles More Adaptable

Combining versatility with functionality, Brownells’® new AR-15/M16 carry handle scope bases offers AR-15/M16 shooters the opportunity to mount a scope while maintaining the ability to use the rifle’s fixed sights.

Available in Weaver and Picatinny model, base mounts quickly and easily by screwing directly into the carry handle. Once secured, shooters can have the confidence that their scope will maintain its accuracy after thousands of rounds.

“In combat situations, military and law enforcement professionals don’t have the luxury of choosing the distance of their shots,” said Frank Brownell, company president. “At a moment’s notice, a scope can become useless if the circumstances change to close quarters combat. The Brownells AR-15/M16 carry handle scope base allows shooters to instantly switch from a scope, back to their fixed sights so they can adapt to any situation.”

Manufactured from aircraft-grade aluminum, both models feature a crossbar support for added strength and durability. The Weaver model (stock #702-000-002) features eight cross-slots and accepts Weaver-style rings. With a Mil-Spec 1913 Picatinny cut along its entire length, the Picatinny model (stock #702-000-003) is able to accept both Weaver and Picatinny rings.

The AR-15/M16 carry handle base is just one of many recent additions to the Brownells line of products for military and law enforcement applications. As with every item Brownells offers, the both models feature an exclusive 100-percent satisfaction guarantee, which promises a prompt refund of the full purchase price for any product that does not satisfy customer expectations for any reason.
