Both guns come with a free-float barrel that is guaranteed to shoot sub-MOA.
The CA-15 Gen 2 features a match-grade trigger and comes with a flared magwell and a BCM Gunfighter stock. The 416R stainless-steel barrel is button-rifled and features a 1/2x28 TPI threaded muzzle, along with a stainless-steel flash hider. The barrel also features a match chamber. The optional carbon-fiber features a stainless-steel insert that is wrapped in aerospace-grade carbon fiber. The carbon-fiber barrel also features a titanium flash hider. Both barrels feature a .223 Wylde chamber.
The CA-15 also features a 14.75-inch slim-line handguard that is constructed from carbon fiber and is available in both KeyMod and M-Lok configurations. The CA-15 Gen 2 weighs in at 5.8 pounds with a carbon-fiber barrel, while the stainless-steel model weighs in at 5.9 pounds. The suggested retail price on the CA-15 platform starts at $1,749 with a stainless-steel barrel. The suggested retail price for a model with a carbon-fiber barrel is $2,295.

The rifle also comes with a 15-inch slim-line carbon-fiber handguard available in both KeyMod and M-Lok configurations. The rifle is available in both .308 Win. and 6.5 Creedmoor, with an 18-inch and a 20-inch barrel, respectively.
