AR Type, Semi-automatic
CMMG's MkW ANVIL is a mid-sized AR rifle platform that is uniquely engineered to easily handle calibers with large casing diameters and significantly high bolt thrust. The most defining feature of the ANVIL is CMMG's unique POWERBOLT design, which allows the rifle to utilize a modified AR10-sized bolt for increased durability. This is important because large-diameter cartridges such as 6.5 Grendel would require material to be milled out of a standard AR15-sized bolt in order to function - resulting in a thin, fragile bolt face. The POWERBOLT design allows the ANVIL to take 6.5 Grendel, and many others, to their full potential. The MkW ANVIL is built on an AR10-sized frame with the upper receiver shortened by three quarters of an inch to minimize weight and increase ergonomics. Although the frame is based on the AR10 platform, the magwell on the lower receiver has been uniquely designed to accept standard AR15 magazines. This allows the rifle to utilize the durable AR10-sized bolt with calibers such as 6.5 Grendel, which have a case diameter that is larger than a 5.56 NATO. The result is a mid-sized AR that delivers superior durability while minimizing weight. The 6.5 Grendel caliber was developed by Arne Brennan, Bill Alexander, and Janne Pohjoispää and introduced in 2004 by Alexander Arms. The design of the 6.5 Grendel intended to create a cartridge capable of functioning in an AR15 platform while simultaneously providing superior long-range accuracy and energy upon impact. Since its introduction, the 6.5 Grendel has proven to be an effective round for long-range shooting in both hunting and tactical situations. Bullet weights range from 90 grains all the way up to 130 grains, making it a diverse cartridge for a variety of applications. CMMG MkW ANVIL XLR2: Barrel: 22", 1:8 Twist, Medium Taper, 416SS SBN.
