LWRC International - M6 SL (Stretch Lightweight) Rifle
New for LWRCI in 2011 is the M6-SL. The new M6-SL is a replacement for our base model M6 rifle of old. The SL, which stands for, ‘stretch-lightweight’, incorporates everything a shooters needs in a quality lightweight base model rifle. Price and weight were the most important factors when developing the SL. With the M6-SL, LWRCI has brought to the market the lightest factory piston driven rifle to date.?
The SL comes standard with Magpul MOE furniture. A MOE mid-length handguard, MOE stock, and MOE pistol grip provide excellent handling characteristics, while minimizing added weight. The SL utilizes the ‘stretch’ or mid-length piston system, providing a more direct recoil impulse for faster follow-up shots.?
The most distinct feature of the SL is the light contour barrel. The barrel still utilizes LWRCI’s NiCorr surface conversion technology on a cold-hammer-forged barrel, but the barrel is of a smaller diameter to reduce weight. ?
The SL comes standard with the EXO (nickel-boron) plated Advanced Combat Bolt, one piece EXO coated carrier, and the EXO coated enhanced fire control group. The SL also comes standard with a Daniel Defense A1.5 fixed rear sight and a fixed A2 front sight post.?
The SL is a great addition to the LWRCI family of rifles. It provides users with an extremely lightweight rifle that incorporates our patented short-stroke piston operating system, has all of the advanced coatings that make our rifles the best in the world, and does so at an entry level price.?
