LWRC REPR 18in FDE for Sale

After a long wait, our 18 inch REPR has finally arrived from LWRC-- complete with its custom Flat Dark Earth (FDE) Cerakote finish. The 18in REPR might be the best overall 7.62mm NATO autoloader on the market. It's not too short and not too long. It's just right, not unlike a bowl of porridge. LWRC's short stroke piston system is renowned as one of the best in the industry. The multiple gas settings on the REPR allow it to adapt to many situations: N = Normal. A = Adverse Conditions. S = Suppressed/Silenced. O = Off, which allows the operator to cycle the action manually-- for an incremental gain in accuracy and near bolt-like performance. [click here for the photo gallery]

To take further advantage of the shortened 18in cold hammer-forged barrel, we opted for the Magpul UBR in lieu of the PRS Sniper butt stock that is standard equipment on the 18 and 20 inch REPRs (the VLTOR eMod is standard on the 16in carbine). The Magpul UBR is an excellent stock. It has quick detach points for your slings, storage for batteries, and allows you to keep a consistent cheek-weld regardless of how extended or collapsed the stock is. The adjustments are also very precise on the UBR, allowing shooters to achieve the perfect length of pull.

All 18 and 20 inch REPRs ship from LWRC with a superb Geissele trigger and flip up front and rear sights by Troy. The pistol grip is a Magpul MIAD. The optic we featured in the photo-shoot is a new look at an old classic. Well, I guess we shouldn't call the Aimpoint CompML2 an "old" sight, but since it was introduced we've seen the M3, M4, and T1 models gain a lot of traction. The latter two have been embraced by the military, law enforcement, and competitive shooting communities. But all of these new Aimpoint models pay homage to the M2 series that was and still is the military standard for many of our troops. Aimpoint recently introduced this special edition ML2 which includes an updated rubber cover in Flat Dark Earth and the rock solid M68 Quick Release Picatinny (QRP) mount and spacer. The whole set up is an excellent value at only $450. It is also important to note that LWRC is now shipping REPR rifles with the new 20-round magazines from Magpul.

I think you'll agree that this is a very special rifle. Thus, it deserves a special home that will be able to feed its insatiable appetite for 7.62mmx51. We have this rifle available with or without the Aimpoint CompML2 in our clearance section.

Have a good one and God bless.
