Limited Series: December 2023 M4A1 RIII™ - By The People
By the People — our eleventh Limited Series build and final of the year — is extra special to us, as everyone from the manufacturing floor to the front office had a say in the design.
The end result is our best-selling M4A1 RIII carbine, featuring a fully ambidextrous lower that allows left- and right-handed shooters to operate the bolt catch, safety selector, and magazine release without moving or removing their dominant hand from the rifle’s grip.
The rifle is built around a 14.5” Cold Hammer Forged M4 Profile barrel with a permanently attached HuxWrx Flash Hider. It features our 12.5” RIS III rail with popular M-LOK attachment for lighter weight and plenty of real estate for all the accessories this firearm comes standard with, including an Eotech HWS EXPS3 Holographic Sight that allows for extremely fast target acquisition and a compact Eotech Magnifier G43 for fast transition from 3X to 1X.
A dual-fuel SureFire Scout Light Pro can be powered by its included rechargeable lithium-ion battery or two 123A disposables and cranks out up to 1,500 lumens of blinding white light. Rounding out the build is an Emissary Development Handbrake, a Blue Force Gear Custom Padded Vickers Sling, an upgraded Daniel Defense branded hard case, a Commemorative Challenge Coin, and even a Certificate of Authenticity to let everyone who can’t recognize it just by looking at this beautiful rifle that it’s an extremely rare firearm that only a handful of others possess!
