It's got an M-16 type bolt carrier group and changing handle. It's got an A-2 style pistol grip. It's got an M-4 style military-spec adjustable stock. And it comes with a 30-round magazine.

If you'd like such an AR-15 rifle, then you might be interested in entering the promotion the gun-rights lobbying and litigation group Florida Carry is running, "New Gear for a New Year," to give one away in a contest for members and registered supporters. The exact specs on the gun to be given away may change before the April 1 drawing.
The AR-15 is one of the most popular semi-automatic rifles manufacturered, with variations used by the U.S. military and armies around the world. A few variations were banned from sale as "assault weapons" to civilians in 1994 but that ban was lifted when the law expired in 2004. It has been called the most popular rifle in America. It's also popular among mass-killers, including those who killed in Newtown and Aurora.

Florida Carry lobbies the Florida Legislature and enters lawsuits to oppose gun restrictions and defend or expand Floridians abilities to carry firearms (and other weapons such as knives) for self defense in places ranging from the state fair to college campuses. Founder Sean Caranna said the organization has 12,000 members and registered supporters who will be eligible to win the AR-15.

Here's Florida Carry's full description of the prize;
"When you win, you'll just have to pay whatever fees your local Federally Licensed Firearms Dealer (or FFL) charges to lawfully transfer the firearm to you. ($25 to $30 at most Florida FFLs.)
