The new M6-SL is a replacement for LRWC base model M6 rifle of old. The SL, which stands for, ‘stretchlightweight’, incorporates everything a shooter needs in a quality lightweight base model rifle. 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. Self-regulating short-stroke gas-piston system eliminates the venting of hot, carbonladen gases into the receiver and bolt carrier group, thus eliminating the intensive cleaning regime of rifle. It also means the bolt carrier group and associated springs are not subjected to the searing heat of the tapped gases, this being one of the major causes of small parts failure. This translates into carbines that are far more reliable than the legacy direct impingement carbines, regardless of user maintenance. Another benefit of short-stroke, gas-piston system is the improved handling characteristics of weapons over the direct impingement legacy weapons. Recoil is lighter and muzzle rise is greatly reduced. Amazingly, this is accomplished in a carbine that is ergonomically identical, weighs almost the same, and retains 80% parts commonality with the legacy direct impingement carbine. The components of LWRC piston system are machined from SPS alloy, a material that belongs to the superalloy family. These superalloys are found in the aerospace industry such as in the blades of gas-turbine jet engines. It is their ability to withstand extremely high temperatures without losing their strength or becoming fatigued.
