SIONICS Patrol Minimalist Carbine

The new SIONICS Patrol Minimalist manages to shave more than 5 ounces off the weight of their already trim Lightweight Carbine. It weighs just 5 pounds, 8.7 ounces which means that if you make the right choices on things like sights, optics, and weapon lights, you should be able to keep the total weight of this carbine to just over 6 pounds.

SIONICS Weapon Systems 16″ Pencel Barrel and Pencil Barrel Rifle

As promised in our recent post on SIONICS Weapon Systems new 11.5″ barrels, here is the latest on their new 16″ mid-length lightweight profile “pencil” barrel and Pencil Barrel Rifle. The new barrel is everything you expect from SIONICS. It will be available with a variety of gas block options or as part of a complete rifle – the SIONICS Pencil Barrel Rifle.

The Pencil Barrel Rifle sports a 15″ Midwest Industries SSK rail, B5 Systems Bravo SOPMOD Stock, and Ergo grip and still manages to weigh in at just 5 pounds, 14 ounces. That means that if you are smart with your light, sight and optic choices, the completed carbine will weigh in at around 6.5 pounds. That is quite light for an off the shelf carbine.

The barrels and complete rifle builds will be available Memorial Day weekend. Keep an eye on SIONICS Weapon Systems.

SIONICS 11.5″ Barrels

I have already written about what a great value SIONICS Weapon Systems barrels are. Now they are introducing a new 11.5″ barrel and I have no doubt it will be excellent.


The new 11.5″ barrels will be made from 4150 CMV Steel with a proper 5.56 chamber. The barrel extension has M4 feed ramps. Unlike their current 16″ barrel which has a 1 in 8″ twist rate, this new 11.5″ barrel will have a 1 in 7″ twist. It goes through all the same quality checks that you have come to expect from SIONICS including individual X-ray and MP testing. These barrels weigh in at 1 lb, 6 oz.

They will be offered with your choice of chrome lining or Melonite processing and your choice of gas block options including a fixed FSB, low profile gas block, and no gas block. The stripped barrels will start at $189.95.

They are already in hand at SIONICS and will be available on their site next week.

Stay tuned for details on their upcoming lightweight profile (pencil) barrel in the coming days!
