The Land Warfare Resources Corporation’s M6-G is a semi-automatic tactical rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO and 6.8mm Rem. SPC. LWRC, founded in 1999, specializes in making AR15- and M16-style rifles, but with a handful of trademark features. The M6-G uses LWRC’s short-stroke gas-piston operating system meaning the propellant gases are cycled from the barrel into a tube and then directed onto a piston, which drives the bolt back. Since gas isn’t entering the bolt directly, carbon buildup is reduced in turn maintenance is too. The bolt was treated with a proprietary nickel coating that makes the action corrosion resistant and adds a permanent lubrication, which increases functionality in wet or sandy conditions. It has a cold hammer forged barrel, so a machine carefully cut the grooves in the bore. This process produces solid grooves and improves the rifling’s durability. The barrel itself was treated with NiCorr, which is often compared to chrome, but unlike chrome it applies evenly. NiCorr treatment makes the barrel wear and corrosion resistant, and adds lubricity and durability.
Other features include an adjustable stock, a target crown, which helps
maintain barrel harmonics so when a round is fired vibrations won’t
throw off the projectile’s trajectory, an ergonomically friendly Magpul
grip, Back Up Iron Sights (BUIS) and a Picatinny rail for easy mounting
of a scope or sights.
An optional trademark feature is Cerakote ceramic finish instead of a black anodized finish. It adds the corrosion resistance of Teflon, but is supposed to be more durable (add $150).
LWRC recommends the M6-G for tactical use such as law enforcement or military, but also for competitive shooting.
