BUSHMASTER CARBON 15 TYPE 21 PISTOL
The Bushmaster Carbon 15 Type 21 Pistol offers the light weight and high tech features of its Type 97 brother. It weighs only a feather-weight 47 ounces due to its Carbon 15 molded Upper and Lower Receivers. Carbon 15 material has impressive durability and strength in relation to its ultra-light weight. In addition, it is completely weather and corrosion resistant.
The Type 21 stainless steel, match grade barrel (7.25" length; 1 x 9 rifling) is chambered for the 5.56mm NATO Cartridge but readily accepts the .223 Remington cartridge as well, and the same Quick Detachable Compensator utilized on the Type 97 is fitted to reduce muzzle rise and felt recoil. It is easily removed by means of its spring loaded locking collar should the shooter wish to fire without recoil compensation. The high quality steel bolt is machined for tight lockup and long wear, and the bolt carrier is finished in manganese phosphate for protection against corrosion.
As on the Type 97 Pistol, Firing controls are in standard AR15 layout, and for additional safety, the Safety Selector Lever markings are color-coded on both sides of the Lower Receiver to quickly determine the firing status of the pistol. The Charging Handle is molded of Carbon Fiber, and captivated takedown pins allow Upper and Lower Receiver separation for easy cleaning and lubrication. The Type 21 iron sights are a ghost ring type rear and a front sight blade is machined into the gas block. The gas tube is enclosed for strength and the enclosure is vented to aid in cooling.
Completely designed and manufactured in the U.S.A., the Bushmaster C15 Type 21 Pistol is shipped with Operators Manual, Warranty Card and 10 Round Magazine.
