With the rollout of the new Palouse Lite rifle from 2A Armament, finding that sweet spot between features and price in the AR-15 market just got a little easier. Introduced as part of the company's new Builder Series, the Palouse Lite has the features and build quality you expect in a high-end custom rifle, but at a down-to-earth price. Built with an incredibly detailed machining processes and the highest quality component, the Palouse light gives you a custom AR design at a mass market price, removing one of the barriers to entry for people wanting a high-quality AR with high-end features.
The Palouse Lite has a 16-inch lightweight-profile barrel with a 1-in-8 twist rate. That lighweight barrel, combined with a 15-inch M-Lok handguard and a Mission First Tactical Minimalist buttstock means the Palouse Lite weighs a mere 5.3 pounds. The five-position stock allows the rifle to be collapsed down to 33-inches or extended out to 36.5 inches.
The Palouse Lite has a forged 7075 aluminum upper and lower receiver and comes equipped with a Magpul grip and a BCM Gunfighter charging handle. The upper receiver is topped with Picatinny rails for mounting your choice of optics, and those rails extend out onto the handguard for even more ways to mount accessories on your rifle.
