At Shot Show this year, the floor was covered in AR15 rifles. New manufacturers, established manufacturers throwing their hat into the arena, and those who stood tall amongst the rest. In that crowd was DoubleStar Corp with their Constant Carry Carbine. This AR15 has made so much noise over the last year that it not only took one of the Top 5 Guns from Shot Show by wideopenspaces.com, but Outdoor Channel’s Michael Bane gave it the “Most Significant AR of the Year” award from his show “Shooting Gallery.” In a world filled with every variation of AR, this is no small feat.
The reason the C3 is so popular is because of its super lightweight profile. Weighing in at just 5.5 lbs, the C3 is the ideal AR for a hike into the woods, teaching a small-statured shooter to use an AR, or anyone who has to carry an AR for a living. It features a 9″ Samson Evolution handguard with the ability to add sections of rail anywhere along the system, a 16″ “Pencil” profile barrel (.675 at the gas port), and an Ace Ultra Light Entry stock. The core of the C3 remains the same high quality military grade upper and lower receiver and internals, no polymer. With a retail price at just $1,349.99, the C3 is an ideal carbine for everyone.
