Colt is now offering its first production mid-length gas system carbine, the Colt Combat Unit 5.56 x 45mm-cal. carbine, which includes many of the features of the popular Colt M4 platform.

“Producing a mid-length gas system was the logical next-step for us, and it's long overdue," said Justin Baldini, director of product marketing for Colt. "Shooters will find that by moving the gas block closer to the muzzle as this mid-length gas system does, the felt recoil is more constant with what is fielded by our troops carrying a 14.5" barrel M4."

The carbine was developed with the help of legendary trainers Mike Pannone, Ken Hackathorn and Daryl Holland. It features a Magpul SL buttstock and pistol grip as well as a MOE trigger guard. It has a low profile gas block, which allows for the use of its M-LOK capable Centurion CMR free-floated fore-end. MSRP is $1,299 and is available exclusively from TALO Distributors.
