Kiefer Police Department Selects RISE Armament Watchman SBR

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma-( RISE Armament, a premier manufacturer and supplier of AR components and firearms, was recently the rifle manufacturer of choice for Kiefer Police Department in northeastern Oklahoma.

Kiefer Police Department placed an order for the Watchman in its short-barrel rifle (SBR) configuration. The Kiefer department contacted RISE Armament after hearing positive feedback from local gun dealers who had used RISE equipment. After learning more about the Watchman, the department determined the RISE Watchman would suit its needs better, and more affordably, than others.

RISE developed the Watchman with input from SWAT/SOT/SRT officers, patrol officers, military snipers, competitive shooters, and firearms instructors to ensure an extremely accurate, dependable, and affordable product. It’s an ideal firearm for law enforcement.

The RISE Armament Watchman SBR has an 11.5-inch match-grade 416R stainless steel barrel with a carbine-length gas system. The barrel is chambered in .223 Wylde for incredible accuracy with .223 and 5.56 ammo. It features proprietary fluting for weight reduction and is sub-MOA accurate with duty ammo. The rifles also have a 10-inch RISE aluminum handguard that is M-LOK compatible with a 12 o’clock Picatinny upper rail system and six QD points.

The Watchman’s other features include RISE’s Veil flash hider—which minimizes flash without the tuning-fork effect of other prong-style flash hiders—forged aluminum upper and lower receivers, an ambidextrous safety, and a premium black nitride-finished bolt carrier group. The Watchman also boasts RISE Armament’s LE145 Tactical Trigger, which has a crisp, balanced break and 4.5-pound pull. The rifle has a Magpul pistol grip and stock, and it and includes one magazine.

RISE Armament specializes in the design and manufacturing of AR rifles, triggers, barrels, handguards, and compensators for civilian, military, and law enforcement uses. For more information about RISE Armament products, visit
