Check out the video and info from shooters that are using the LWRC rifle and how it compares to the LMT AR-15
In case you don’t know – LMT is Lewis Machine and Tool. LWRC stands for Land Warfare Resources Corporation.
It goes without saying but both weapons cost more than your average run of the mill black rifle. Both are Cadillac’s with a world class reputation.
Both of the lower receivers are good in that that are mil spec and nothing funky designed into it.
You can change out the barrels pretty quick on the LMT Monolithic Rail Platform (MRP ) from 5.56 to calibers like 6.8 mm SPC.
The LMT’s upper is built out of one piece of milled aluminum. No seams and no welding. This means that there are no gaps in the rail so you can line up any combination of optics or sights and all will be aligned.
The LWRC M6 is manufactured by LWRC International a series of carbines designed and based on the M4 carbine, which it shares 80% of its parts. The ‘M’ model name is not a US military designation. This is a proprietary short-stroke self-regulating gas piston system and bolt carrier/carrier key design. This system prevents trapped gases from contacting the bolt carrier or receiver of the weapon. The idea is that this method reduces the heating and carbon fouling of the internals, simplifies field maintenance, and improves reliability.
The LWRC M6 has a standard length barrel is 16.1 in, with a 1:7″ twist (six lands, right twist) barrel with a ferritic nitrocarburized surface conversion which covers the barrel, inside and out, as well as the piston components. Additional barrel lengths of 10.5″, 12.7″, 14.7″ and 18″ are available.
