RR-JP15ULR Small-Frame Forged (Ultralite)

Riverside Sporting Gear is Master Dealer for JP Rifles

SCR-11 Rifle JP Rifles

JP-15™ Small-Frame Forged
The classic forged receiver set is the essence of the AR platform.  Forging makes for the strongest, lightest and least expensive receivers, but that doesn’t mean a compromise in quality.  Every JP15™ is built to the same performance standards as any rifle in our billet lines.  It serves equally well for top competition shooters as for elite military and LE trainers.
Our longest running rifle line, the JP-15™ forged rifle takes the pick of the receiver litter.  We pride ourselves on a high rejection rate for minor cosmetic and machining flaws most other manufacturers would never notice.
A JP-15™ is the easiest way to start shooting a JP rifle with every configuration on the table for custom builds.  Complete upper and lower assemblies are also available.  Select from our suggested pre-configurations and Ready Rifles or spec your own in our online rifle builder.
