Built to a New Cordian Military Specification issued in 1995, the Standard Rifle, (19)95, Light Caliber was completed in 2005.
A collaberation between HK GmbH of the Teutonic Federation and the New Cordian Castle Arms Company, the SR-95L incorporates HK's PCAP hardpoints and G36 magazines with Castle Arms high-impact, high-heat M9643 polymer and an improved action based on the AK-74M. A 3x duel-purpose holographic scope with built in grenade sight, laser pointer and back-up black dot developed by VanDan Co. Optics of the Dutch Republic co-witnesses AR-15-style sights.
Many accesories are availble for the SR-95, including the GL-95 35mm grenade launcher, UK/B-95 utility knife/bayonnet, OT-95 optics package, SpT-95 supressor and TS-95 thermal scope for night missions.
The SR-95L was originally chambered in 5.56x45mm NACO, but New Cordian distain for the 5.56 round led to the launch caliber being changed to the 7x40mm SPAC. Caliber list was eventually expanded for export purposes, and includes 5.56 NACO, 6.8 SPC, 7.62 ComBloc, 5,45 ComBloc and 6.5 Grendel.
While the Home Defense Corps adopted the SR-95L and it's bigger cousin the SR-95H, the Expeditionary Corps was unsatisfied with the weapon, and later adopted the MBR-13 instead.
