New for 2022, Rock River Arms developed its Assurance Carbine for use by several government agencies and law-enforcement groups, and this purpose-driven tactical carbine is now available to consumers seeking a well-built carbine for home defense and range use.

At the heart of the Rock River Arms Assurance Carbine is a precision-machined and matched receiver set. Mated to the upper receiver is a 16" chrome-moly barrel chambered in 5.56 NATO. The barrel is surrounded by the company's redesigned, free-floated quad-rail handguard, a feature specifically requested by several law-enforcement agencies. The fore-end features full-length Picatinny rails at the 3-, 9- and 12-o'clock positions, as well as a short, nine-slot rail at the 6-o'clock position. The anodized aluminum handguard also protects a carbine-length gas system, which includes a receiver-height railed gas block. The gas block also features a sling-mounting point, too.

Other features found on the Rock River Arms Assurance Carbine include a Hogue overmolded pistol grip, two-stage trigger and a six-position buttstock. Each rifle ships with a single 30-round polymer magazine and a hard-sided carrying case, and the guns carry a lifetime warranty. The manufacturer's suggested retail price on the Assurance Carbine is $1,000. For more information, visit
