Chris Costa has partnered with LaRue Tactical to produce the LaRue Chris Costa Edition OBR Rifle. The rifle is engraved with Chris’ COSTA LUDUS trident/net logo and is finished with KG Gun Kote’s Flat Dark Earth. Other than the price, $2750 (about $500 more than standard LaRue PredatOBR and OBR rifles), there is nothing not to like about this rifle.
The quest for a perfectly-balanced and reliable 5.56 rifle led Chris Costa to LaRue Tactical for a custom “signature series” rifle to bear his name. Costa requested the best of both worlds; the popular and lightweight PredatAR chassis, combined with the accuracy and reliability of an OBR 5.56 barrel. LaRue brought these elements together and provided it with a 14.5” barrel that is pinned and welded with a SureFire Muzzle Brake.
A LaRue Tactical first, The entire frame is finished in FDE, KG GunKote with the “COSTA LUDUS” logo engraved on the left side of the receiver. Black parts and rail covers provide dramatic contrast. The first 500 units will be match-numbered on the upper and lower.
