ARES Defense Mission Configurable Rifle (MCR)

ARES Defense Systems introduced the ARES-15 Mission Configurable Rifle (MCR). The ARES-15 MCR improves upon the standard AR-15 by offering flexibility with its dual-feed capabilities and quick-change barrel. The standard magazine-fed ARES-15 MCR is upgradeable to a dual-feed design with the purchase and installation of the optional Belt Feed Conversion Kit, and is also available as a belt-feed only version. The ARES-15 MCR’s quick-change barrel, which allows users to configure the ARES-15 MCR in seconds without the aid of tools, is available in 12-, 16- and 20-inch lengths. In addition, the ARES-15 MCR features gas-piston operation that provides greater reliability in extreme conditions, and is cleaner, cooler and more reliable in adverse conditions than the legacy direct-gas system.
