The 5.56 mm M96 Mini Beryl 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.
