The Global Ordnance Monolith, a bufferless AR-style rifle series, will be unveiled by G.O. at the 2024 NSSF SHOT Show. G.O. tells us, “This extraordinary technical design seamlessly combines cutting-edge features for an unmatched shooting experience,” which, of course, kinda makes us want to know more.
Here’s what they tell us:
The Global Ordnance Monolith will be available in 16.1” rifle, 12.6” pistol, and SBR configurations. It harnesses all of the advantages of a new bufferless operating system while incorporating a unique single-piece integrated barrel system and fully ambidextrous controls.
