Super Duty Rifle, 16″, 5.56mm Nitride Barrel
Exclusive to the Geissele Super Duty Rifle 16” is the brand new SSA-E X with Lighting Bow trigger. This nanocoated, two-stage trigger features a wide-body and bow shape that finds the perfect balance between a classic M4 trigger and a flat body trigger.
At the heart of this rifle is the Geissele REBCG (Reliability Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group). This Nanoweapon coated BCG is machined from mil-spec 8620 steel, with a properly torqued and staked, chrome-lined gas key.
The Cam Pin is machined from advanced, medical steel known as H13 which is also coated with Nanoweapon for maximum corrosion and wear resistance. The REBCG also features extended upper rails, providing greater stability and dramatically increasing feeding reliability.
The REBCG comes with the Geissele Stressproof Bolt. Made from Carpenter 158+, directly developed with Carpenter Steel metallurgists to create a material that is cleaner and has fewer impurities. This makes our Stressproof bolt stronger and more fatigue resistant. The Geissele Stressproof bolt is also forged, not machined from bar stock.
This allows us to optimize the grain structure of the steel to yield a bolt capable of 5 times the life of a mil-spec bolt. Each bolt is rigorously inspected, high pressure tested, mag particle inspected and Nanoweapon coated.
The Super Duty lower is precision machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and features Geissele’s Ultra Duty Lower Parts Kit featuring our Ambidextrous Super Configurable safety and Ultra Precision trigger guard. A high-quality mil-spec Geissele Buffer Tube with a Super-42 in H2 buffer ensures this rifle is properly tuned out of the box.
Rounding up the package is a 15” MK16 Super Modular Rail, that mate to the Super Duty Upper Receiver via a center aligning tab that removes any chance of rail rotation. The MK16 family of rails is fielded by USASOC and renowned by operators for their performance and comfort. An Airborne Charging Handle ensures smooth and reliable operation.
A classic A2 style grip and a B5 Systems Enhanced Sopmod Stock finalizes this high-end rifle that offers the user unmatched accuracy and performance. What is Geissele Nanoweapon?
Geissele Nanoweapon (also known as Picatinny DSL) is a family of Durable Solid Lubricant coatings which was developed by ARDEC. It is available exclusively from Geissele Automatics.
The continued the development of Picatinny DSL so that its level of corrosion, wear and abrasion resistance is currently unmatched among firearm coatings. Nanoweapon is applied at low temperatures so that the underlying metallurgy of the part is non affected by the application process.
Our coating also has a surface hardness roughly equivalent to synthetic diamond. This makes Geissele Nanoweapon harder than sand, easily rejecting carbon and making cleaning a breeze, on top of allowing the firearm to operate normally with less lubrication.

Pros and Cons
There may be two areas in which the Geissele Super Duty Rifle might seem to be less than spectacular: cost and weight. The basic rifle starts at $1,750, and changes and upgrades will add to that. But you get what you pay for, and with Geissele you get extreme performance and durability.
-Much better trigger
-Looks better, IMO
That alone is a good reason to buy the Geissele Automatics Super Duty Rifle, 16″, 5.56mm Nitride Barrel
Unknown quality of the barrel, lower, and its internals. We can only speculate.
At this stage, we know nothing about its reliability or accuracy.
