The weight and overall length have all been optimized to give the end-user enhanced ballistics and accuracy in a lightweight and agile carbine. The CBC-E is equipped with a specially designed 13″ barrel and an enhanced stock that reduces the overall length of this platform by 6” when compared to its full-size counterpart.
