The Land Warfare Resources Corporation’s M6A2 Tricolor is a semi-automatic tactical rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO. LWRC, founded in 1999, specializes in making AR15- and M16-style rifles, but with a handful of trademark features. The Tricolor has identical features to the M6A2, but it has a tricolor camo finish.
The Tricolor uses standard LWRC features such as a short-stroke gas-piston operating system where 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 requires less maintenance. The bolt was treated with a proprietary nickel coating that makes the action corrosion resistant and adds a permanent lubrication. It increases functionality in wet or sandy conditions. It has a cold hammer forged barrel, so a machine carefully carved the grooves into 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 a target crown that helps maintain barrel harmonics so when a round is fired vibrations in the barrel 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.
