The barrel's 1:8-inch twist rate accommodates a broad spectrum of ammunition types.

Further distinguishing the Sport III is its 15-inch free-floating M-LOK® handguard, which surrounds the barrel and features a full-length Picatinny-style rail, offering ample space for a wide array of accessories. This model benefits from a mid-length gas system designed to reduce recoil, making it an ideal choice for both novice and experienced shooters.
