***STORE DEMO RIFLE****
This rifle is packed with the best of the best, and made by an outstanding company. The rifle has been demonstrated for prospective clients, and has less than 50 rounds through it, so we can vouch for the quality of this one. LWRC backs all rifles with a lifetime warranty, and you will not find a better customer service team.
The R.E.P.R. (pronounced “reaper” as in the grim type) is called the Rapid Engagement Precision Rifle. You have to admit that R.E.P.R. sounds much more badass, right? R.E.P.R.’s are all about .308 / 7.62x51mm, so they’re as serious as the name implies. This rifle is the longer 20” barrel more suitable for longer range duty. The 20-inch barrel is spiral fluted, and gorgeous. While it looks exceptionally cool, the real purpose is to create more surface area for faster cooling during rapid fire. It’s cold hammer forged with a 1:10 twist rate. The front hand guard is 12.5 inches long and is modular, allowing you to add rail segments anywhere along its length at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. The top of the hand guard rail is a seamless continuation of the receiver’s Picatinny section.
The upper and lower receiver are both Cerakoted in a flat dark earth color. The quality of the finishing job by LWRC is outstanding.
The bolt catch and release controls are on both sides of the receiver. As the bolt handle is on the left while not visible, the R.E.P.R. has a forward assist. Simply push inwards on the bolt handle and press forward.
The magazine release button is traditional, and on the right side only. The R.E.P.R. comes with a Magpul twenty round magazine which easily drops free with a press of the release button.
The bolt carrier group is nickel-boron coated. It’s a light to moderate gray color and easily wipes clean, thanks to the gas piston design. Hot and dirty gas never makes it that far back into the action.
The Piston System
As previously mentioned, this is a gas piston design. More specifically, it’s a short-stroke, self-regulating system. The LWRC folks made the piston operating system choice in the hope of achieving big-time reliability in ultra-harsh environments.
Unlike a traditional AR-type rifle, the R.E.P.R. uses a non-reciprocating bolt handle on the left side of the receiver. It’s operation of this, and the internal carrier and bolt are very smooth.
The rifle has a two-setting gas knob for normal and suppressed use. It’s easy to turn with your fingers, but there’s a hole, so if things are dirty and stuck, you can use a .308 cartridge as a lever to rotate the valve. There’s also a gas block tool included in the box.
The stock is a Magpul Precision Rifle/Sniper (PRS) and is adjustable for length of pull and height of comb. Both adjustments are accomplished with inset dials. They’re sticky enough to stay in place once you make the desired adjustments. The base of the stock has a Picatinny rail segment molded into the polymer for attachment of an optional monopod. This rail segment is protected by a sliding cover.
Magpul also provides an MOE+ grip for the R.E.P.R. This is a best of both worlds approach to grips. The body is hard polymer, but there is a softer rubber overmold for grip. It’s also compatible with the Magpul Storage Core system so you can insert dedicated storage modules for batteries, spare parts and even lubricant.
The trigger is a Geissele SSA 2-stage model. It’s absolutely a match trigger and makes deliberate, precise shots easy. The take up stage is factory set for 2 1/2 to 3 pounds, and the second stage requires an additional 1/2 to 1 pound press to break the shot.
The R.E.P.R. also includes flip up iron sights. The LWRC Skirmish front and rear sights are beautifully engineered. They open manually for speed, but require a button press to close. The sights and housings are made from 7570 Aluminum and 4140 Steel for durability. No plastic here.

Shopping at Guns.com gives you the backing of a company that is committed to your satisfaction. And unlike our competitors, it extends beyond the buying process. We get the FFL from your store – others make you find it, copy it, and fax it. We have a generous return policy, and handle everything – you don’t have to go back to the store. And our Rangemasters are here to answer all your questions about our products or process. We're bringing a level of service to the online gun buying experience that is unheard of.
Many online gun sales actually take away from your local community. Instead of buying a gun that’s on your local store’s shelf, most retailers drop ship it from a warehouse in another state. At Guns.com, if an FFL is part of our network, we sell THEIR guns first whenever possible. That way, we’re helping small businesses in your community AND if they have it in stock, you can pick your gun up IMMEDIATELY – it’s how business should be done.
Most everything can be easily bought online these days. But for some reason, buying a gun online can be complicated. Most websites are poorly organized, don’t tell you a lot about what you’re buying, and leave you on your own to figure out what you want. Guns.com is built to be simple – easily organized products, useful descriptions from experts, and support to guide you to the right choice. Spend your time enjoying the gun you want, not getting frustrated with a complex website that makes gun buying hard.
