The NEW Anderson Dissipator Carbine Is Here! (But For Real This Time)

Back at NRAAM 2023, TFBTV’s Hop and I had a chance to check out the subtly launched Anderson Manufacturing AM15 Dissipator Carbine. The Anderson Dissipator carbine was an unexpected hit at the Primary Arms Range Day 2023, and NRAAM 2023 with, Hop, myself, and a couple of other writers having a blast running magazine after magazine through the retro-inspired rifle. I’m happy to announce that if you’ve been looking to pick one of these up since their announcement at NRAAM, they’re available now through the Anderson Manufacturing website for what I would call a great price.

From the battleground to the forefront, this rifle answers the question: ‘What would have happened if the original chopped M16 made it all the way to the A4 generation?’”

Anderson’s modern-take on a classic, the AM-15 Dissipator delivers a very smooth recoil impulse and optimal sight radius. You get the benefits of a rifle-length gas system in a lighter, more compact package.

Made in Hebron, Kentucky, USA

The concept behind the dissipator is twofold. Firstly, by using a shorter barrel, the rifle becomes more maneuverable and lighter in weight. Secondly, the longer sight radius provided by the rifle-length front sight post allows for improved accuracy. However, there were reliability issues with early dissipators due to reduced dwell time caused by the shortened barrel – this doesn’t seem to be the case at all with the one that I’ve had a chance to shoot and I hope the production models follow this same trend as this is a rifle I’d certainly love to own myself. If you’re interested in picking one up for yourself, they’re available on the Anderson Manufacturing website for a price of $599.99.
