We first saw the JR-15 at last year’s SHOT Show and I thought it was pretty freakin’ awesome! This year, they’re about ready to start shipping and I was able to put a few mags through the scaled-down AR at Range Day.
Yes! My only critical comment / suggestion after seeing it last year was a threaded barrel. When I shoot with my girls, I shoot suppressed! The JR-15 is available with a 16-inch, threaded barrel for just such use.
I shot the suppressed model and it was awesome. It’s a miniature AR-15 in every way, but it plinks 22 LR downrange. It was accurate, it was fun, it was quiet, and it ran great without a hitch.
