2A Armament Ultralight Rifle – XANTHOS-LITE XLR-18

2A Armament is an American manufacturer specializing in ultralight AR-15s and AR-10s. He intelligently modified the external geometry of his carcasses and his receivers so as not to weaken them.
The lightening operations were not limited to the removal of material, but also consisted in modifying the geometry of the zones which undergo the most stress so as not to weaken them. The most striking example is the rear section of the receiver which is stiffer than a normal receiver and thicker in the most stressed area, and this while maintaining a construction in aeronautical alloy type 7075T6 .
Several titanium parts complete the set. The difference in weight, compared to a light conventional model, is enough to compensate in whole or in large part the mass of the optical sighting system which will equip the rifle.
The balance and maneuverability of these weapons are simply exceptional and it is enough to have one in your hands to be convinced of this.
