The design attitude behind the Blackout Model-15 is simple: Listen to our operators’ feedback, hire the best machinist on the planet, use the highest quality American made raw materials, run the most precise CNC machines in the market, and manufacture the best components possible to create a weapon that efficiently blends with the operators’ skill set. Most rifle operators, in general, strive for extreme accuracy and rapid follow through shots. In Blackout Defense we go the extra mile to deliver what our operators demand. We start with the barrels: our barrels are medium heavy-weight, stainless steel premium match-grade that is optimized for accuracy with 22 NOSLER, 223 Wylde, or 300 BLK chamber and precision target crown.  The end result is a tactical rifle that is a pleasure to operate with the same impressive accuracy and reliability of its predecessor.

Every Model-15 is assembled by hand, one at a time, by a law enforcement officer who inspects, test fires, and cleans the weapon to personally guarantee it for life. Blackout Model-15 comes standard with a free Plano Rifle case, 3 empty 30 round magazine, a set of spare part, and few other goodies. Our rifles are built to order and may require 10 days lead-time before shipment.

      • Nosler achieved its goal with the 22 Nosler. The cartridge is ballistically superior to the .223 Rem. and 5.56×45 mm NATO in all measures—trajectory, wind deflection and on-target energy. Long-range varminters, as well as those who use an AR in .223 Rem. for whitetail deer and feral hog hunting, will benefit greatly. So too will competitive shooters. 22 Nosler has an outstanding performance with longer barrels.Converting a .223 Rem. AR rifle to 22 Nosler is easy. No changes are needed to the lower receiver or even magazine.  If you want, you can switch out only the barrel since the bolt will stay the same. Or simply have a secondary upper.

  • Lantac Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group

    • It is precision machined from 8620-steel with a shot peened bolt manufactured from Carpenter 158 and Magnetically Particle Inspected.
    • The entire carrier assembly is QPQ (Quench Polish Quench) Nitride coated Black, this is a specialized type of Nitrocarburizing Case Hardening that creates a very hard, smooth surface with increased corrosion resistance and low coefficient of friction.
    • The carriers patented and patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward-facing gas ports that have also been resized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier.
    • This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse with a softer start to carrier movement.
    • In addition, the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.  The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s lock position within the upper and makes it more consistent, resulting in an accuracy improvement.
    • All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat and the gas key has been hard chrome lined for the best possible wear resistance.
