LaRue OBR 5.56 Now Shipping
Leander, TX. August 1, 2010
The much-anticipated LaRue OBR 5.56mm rifles are complete, and are shipping daily. Building off the success of LaRue's highly-accurate and reliable OBR 7.62, they applied the same proven design features into a 5.56 rifle. The result is a lightweight, and reliable, tack driver that remains cool…even after high-rates of fire. The new design ensures the barrel nut does not touch the handguard at any point, so there is very little heat-transfer to your support hand. Both the upper and lower are CNC-machined from billet 7075-T6, for the optimum fit and consistency...translating into maximum accuracy.
The barrels are LW-50 stainless steel in 12”, 16.1", 18" & 20" lengths. They are Wylde chambered, and feature polygonal rifling in a 1/8 twist rate. The one-piece continuous upper-rail provides plenty of room for weapon-mounted night-vision day/night combinations and provides correct ballistic orientation for all inline night-vision combinations. The 10 MOA cant gives users an added advantage when using magnified optics at longer distances. Each rifle ships with three, 3” long, MIL-STD-1913 detachable rail sections that they can be configured anywhere along the entire length of the handguard (via threaded steel inserts), for the interface of MIL-STD-1913 equipped lights, lasers, bipods, grips, tripod mounts, etc. The Bolts and Bolt Carriers are hand-polished hard-chrome. The trigger group is the same excellent Geissele SSA Combat Triggers we use in the OBR 7.62.
