Good News for Battle Rifle Company: the Rockport Police Department has ordered six BR4 Cutlass Rifles to upgrade its firearm inventory. The Rockport Police Department is the First Law Enforcement agency to field the Cutlass into service: a small order for an interesting weapon.
These rifles are specifically designed to perform in all types of environments thanks to a combination of coatings and treatments that make the rifles corrosion-resistant for long periods of exposure to salt-air and saltwater environments. Located about 30 minutes from Corpus Christi, and right on the Texas gulf coast, Rockport is known for its fishing, recreation and coastal lifestyle. The community has experienced growth and development as a Texas vacation destination. The rifles will be used by officers assigned to traffic and patrol, as well as be utilized on the water for the department’s Marine division. The BR4 Cutlass is well suited for supporting the department in its operations in a coastal environment.
Battle Rifle Company, founded in 2010, is a Texas-based custom builder of AR style rifles for law enforcement, tactical shooters and government agencies. Chambered in 5.56 mm NATO, the Cutlass is the free float version of Battle Rifle Company’s BR4 Platform (the Company’s designation for rifles with lengths of 16in or less), and has been specifically designed for MARSEC (Maritime Security) operations and shipboard usage.
