The Safir T-15 is a semi-automatic rifle manufactured by Safir Arms of Turkey. The weapon is an AR-15 derivative intended for civilian and police use, but Safir arms also makes selective-fire version of the same design as the T-16, which is intended for military use. For countries that prohibit civilian ownership of semi-automatic firearms, a manually operated version of T-15 is available. The T-15 and T-16 rifles come with different layouts, with fixed or telescoping buttstock, and with fixed "M16A2-style" carrying handle or flat-top "M16A4-style" upper receivers. Carbine versions of both rifles also available with same modifications, and with various barrel lengths depending on customer/legal preferences.
Another interesting feature of the T-15 is that it can be easily converted to 36 gauge semi-automatic shotgun with installation of the T-14 shotgun upper receiver, made by the same company.
