Never compromising on quality, the new California Compliant JTE rifle is ahead of its class in features and accuracy. Unlike most defensive rifles in its price range, the JTE includes top notch furniture designed to improve both shooting experience and operator performance. An all new exclusive JT M-LOK 15” handguard provides heat shields and flexible attachment points including picatinny rail integrated into the handguard ends. The Hellfighter rear pin assembly is complemented by the Hogue Freedom Fighter making this the best option for your CA compliant AR15 by having an internal magazine lock which prohibits magazine changes when the upper is in the closed position. Next, the JT 16-inch Chrome Moly Vanadium barrel features a 1:7 twist rate to handle a wide range of bullet types. The operation of the Black Nitride reduced friction M16 bolt carrier group is managed by a carbine length gas system paired with a heavy buffer, resulting in an exceptionally smooth action. Add to that our matching sets of billet uppers and lowers, and you have a very attractive, lightweight defensive weapon.
