Fun in a small package - LWRCI's 5.56mm M6A2 SBR

Fun in a small package - LWRCI's 5.56mm M6A2 SBR

If you haven't tried an SBR yet, now's the time, and this one could be the right choice. Maryland manufacturer LWRCI is making big noise in the AR world with innovative, well-built rifles. Read more about it in the 7/20 issue of SGN.

Big muzzle flash

Big muzzle flash is almost inevitably part of the picture with Short Barreled Rifles, which is why a suppressor is a perfect accessory for one.

M6A2

SBRs not accurate? No way! The M6A2 produced .8 and .9 moa groups with two different Hornady 75-grain loads. The Schmidy & Bender scope was a big help.

The gas system

The gas system uses a fixed piston and a reciprocating cylinder, which LWRCI calls a "piston cup." The G43 and Tokarev rifles used a similar gas system.

M6A2 complete

M6A2 complete as tested with Schmidt & Bender 1.1-4x24mm Zenith Short Dot LE scope, SureFire 60-round magazine and M900V Vertical Foregrip WeaponLight.

Zenith Short Dot LE

Schmidt & Bender's 1.1-4x24mm Zenith Short Dot LE is an improved version of the scope currently fielded by combat elements of the U.S. Marine Corps.

5-25x56mm PM II LP

The Schmidt & Bender 5-25x56mm PM II LP is perfect when bench shooting for gorup, but you hardly would expect to mount one on an SBR for everyday use.

The Elite Iron CQC 1

The Elite Iron CQC 1 with the CQC muzzle brake and cover cap provides operators with significantly enhanced control of the weapon at close quarters.

The gas system

The gas system uses a fixed piston and a reciprocating cylinder, which LWRCI calls a "piston cup." The G43 and Tokarev rifles used a similar gas system.

Carrier key

To prevent carrier tilt, a slight downward angle on the carrier key re-vectors energy to the carrier so that it moves straight back in the receiver.
