Rifle features bolt handle that can be set on either side of the gun, short-throw ambidextrous safety levers, and bolt hold open mechanism. Ammunition is fed from MAGPUL P-MAG 308 and compatible detachable magazines. No iron sights are provided by default, all sighting equipment is normally installed using Picatinny rail that is integral to the upper receiver. In basic configuration, rifle is fitted with AR-15 type telescoping shoulder stock, but upon customer order it can be fitted with other stock options, including side-folding shoulder stocks.
