ADBR PLUS 5.56 – You asked and we listened! During several conversations with ATAC Defense dealers and customers we kept getting the same question. “Can we get nickel boron bolts and oversized charging handles for the basic rifle?” We heard your request, and the Basic Plus was born. This rifle has all the features of the “not so basic rifle”, but upgraded with the nickel boron bolt and oversized charging handle.

At ATAC Defense: quality, reliability, accuracy and fit/finish are our greatest concerns.

We believe in holding a quality level that is far above “mil-spec”. 

All of our components are handpicked and tested by the marksmen that design our rifles.

Our upper and lower receivers are machined “in-house”. We perform this critical task ourselves so we can insure proper fitment, without slack and rattle.

Each ATAC Defense firearm is hand assembled with our inspected, tested and approved components.

After assembly, each firearm goes through a test fire session and is re-inspected. Each firearm must pass our final inspection before it can be shipped to the customer. 

This product can only be shipped to a valid FFL holder.

When ordering, please enter your FFL’s address into the shipping field. Include their contact email or phone number in the notes field so we can exchange FFL’s.

    Great rifle, the guys answered all my questions over the phone and shipped it out fast! Shoots amazing but I’m already out of ammo.

  4. Randy L

    I found you guys from a review of this rifle in firearms news. I was most impressed when the writer said he did not have a single failure with any ammo he tried. I ordered, and it was at my dealer in 5 days. I have only ran 1500 rounds through so far, but this thing is great. I will be ordering an enhanced version from you soon.
