Watchtower Firearms John B Wells Type 15

John B. Wells Type 15

5.56 NATO



The SPEC-OPS Type 15 from WATCHTOWER is an exceptional rifle that will last a lifetime. It surpasses standard military specifications with its combination of billet precision and military heritage.

Crafted from 7075-T6 billet aluminum, minimizing wobble and fortifying the firearm against dust and debris. It includes ambidextrous controls like the charging handle and safety selector, catering for more dexterity. Additionally, we upgraded to use Hiperfire’s EDT2 Heavy Gunner trigger, which offers a crisp reset to focus on controlled shooting, ensuring a consistent and responsive trigger pull. The bolt carrier group and muzzle device also have our PVD coating that adds corrosion resistance, promising functionality against salt water and rust. This technology also creates a super-slick surface that cleans carbon build-up with one wipe. Lastly, the 13.7-inch S7M handguard, with its M-LOK attachment slots at multiple positions, 4 QD points, and a full-length 1913 Picatinny rail, offers a versatile platform for customization and accessory attachment for a wide range of user preferences and tactical needs. The Type 15 from WATCHTOWER’s SPEC-OPS series is the definitive rifle to rely on.
