Robert O'Neill NSRO Type 15


5.56 NATO



NSRO is an acronym for Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill, a limited-edition rifle produced by WATCHTOWER Firearms in collaboration with Robert O'Neill. Together, we offer a quality precision rifle that is reliable and range ready with EOTECH's hybrid optic package. Robert chose the Type 15 rifle as his platform because it exceeds military specifications, with ambidextrous controls, a government profile .223 Wylde barrel, a robust corrosion-resistant 5.56 NATO bolt carrier group and is manufactured from high-grade billet aluminum for a wobble-free fitment and to prevent dust and debris. To give the rifle an edge, Robert upgraded the trigger to a Geissele SSA-E two-stage trigger and a compensating muzzle brake to reduce recoil significantly. Lastly, he engraved his logo as a stamp of approval and finished the gun in a cerakote gray with red accents.

Product Description

In-stock and ready to ship.


The NSRO TYPE 15 is machined from high-grade 7075-T6511 billet aluminum for the tightest tolerances to secure a wobble-free fitment and to prevent dust and debris from entering. Assembled with an ambidextrous charging handle and WATCHTOWER's patented safety selector to satisfy the need for more dexterity, which allows more surface area to manipulate the mechanics of the firearm. We've also upgraded the fire control group with the Geissele SSA-E two-stage trigger. The NSRO includes our Tru-Black PVD coated 5.56 NATO M16 profile MPI tested Durabolt BCG, our most robust, durable, and easy-to-clean coating. The barrel is a stainless steel 16-inch .223 Wylde with a 1:8 rifling twist and has a mid-length gas system finished in a black nitride coating. Surrounding the barrel is the 13.7-inch S7M free-floating handguard with M-LOK attachment slots at five positions, 4 QD points, and a full-length 1913 Picatinny rail. WATCHTOWER's compensating muzzle brake is incorporated at the end of the barrel, a device to mitigate recoil, finished in a Tru-black PVD coating. This rifle also comes with a Style 2 grip with red paracord and Magpul's reinforced polymer MVG vertical grip and their CTR buttstock.
