The advanced rifle is a bullpup assault rifle, loosely based on the CTAR-21 carbine, a variant of the Israeli TAR-21. According to the 'Multiplayer Gameplay' trailer for GTA V, it appears to have an extended magazine attachment that changes the magazine capacity to 60 rounds. It has 30 rounds by default. however if one looks closely at the design elements they would find only the barrel jacket and grip resemble the TAR-21, whereas the rest of the weapon resembles the L22A1 personal defense rifle, (bullpup relative of the SA80)
The Advanced Rifle is usable on several missions throughout the Single Player mode such as the FIB mission, Three's Company. However, it only becomes available for purchase at Ammu-Nation after the last heist, The Big Score.
The Advanced Rifle has the second best damage per second of bullet-shooting weapons, second only to the minigun. It's all-round superior to SMGs and Assault Rifle. It has higher damage stat than the Carbine Rifle but is slightly less accurate.
