Introducing the new Fostech Flite Elite Series Phantom Model, 5.56 caliber AR-15 Rifle. The Fostech Phantom Elite is one of the lightest and most high-quality AR-15 rifles on the market today and a must-have addition to any collection. Coming in at only 5.22 lbs, this rifle can be carried all day and yet is built to be tougher, stronger, and more accurate than most other AR rifles regardless of their weight or class. What makes this rifle truly “Elite” is that it features Fostechs proprietary forged magnesium/aluminum alloy upper and lower receiver.
These high-tech receivers are ultra-light in weight while still being immensely strong and durable. The upper incorporates a Picatinny rail which aligns perfectly with the rail on the free float handguard, so the entire rifle is fully optics ready. All Flite Eagle Elite series rifles feature a Faxon 1 in 8 twist 16″ gunner profile barrel, a black nitride bolt carrier group, and the newly designed Mach-1 16″ M-LOK compatible lightweight rail. The 16″ rail provides a full shroud for the barrel and gives the rifle a beautiful futuristic look as well as being highly functional. They also incorporate a Fostech .625 low profile gas block complimenting a mid-length gas system for ultra-smooth cycling and reliability, with less felt recoil and barrel rise.
Fostech designed this rifle to hold up under even the heaviest of combat conditions while still being one of the lightest rifles on the market. As such, they are also ideal for law enforcement or security forces where dependability and ease of carrying are a must. On top of all that, they are an absolute work of art when it comes to overall appearance and design, and could proudly be displayed as such when not in use.
This model comes in a beautiful Tungsten Cerakote finish and is completed with a premium grade Fostech Lite Castle Nut, an ergonomic Fostech Sabre Pistol Grip, Fostech Tomahawk Stock, and Fostechs highly sought-after Strake Brake Compensator. Each rifle ships in a hard case and comes complete with a manual, warranty cards, and one 30-round magazine. Note – Weights listed in the description above are for the single-stage trigger model. Echo trigger models will be slightly heavier but the differences in weight are so small that they are virtually imperceptible.
