Mod. 96 Mini-Beryl Automatic Carbine

The 5.56 mm Mod. 96 Mini-Beryl Automatic Carbine is a compact individual selective fire automatic weapon for infantry, airborne and other troops. It is a reliable, accurate, enduring and robustly built rifle, resistant to the environmental challenges. Compact size makes it handy for carrying and fighting in enclosed spaces.

Sights are combined, with U-notch and peephole user-selected (L-flip) rear sight and post-type front. Front and rear sights are fitted with integrated tritium-lit night sighting elements, enabling accurate fire both during the day and after dark.

For better handling a new, ergonomic pistol grip and optional front grip (fixed to the handguard or detachable using the integrated RIS interface) were fitted to the Mini-Beryl. The Mini-Beryl has a rifle grenade capability with bullet-trap grenades, enabling live rounds to be used for launching.

Stock is rigid, telescoping with optional side-folding stock available.
The upper and lower handguard integrated Picatinny rails (MIL-STD-1913 compatible) enable to mount different optoelectronic sights, but even without these, the Mini-Beryl features a rear sight cantilever shaped
as a MIL-STD-1913 compatible sight mounting rail.
