    I like it!

  • Beranimus

    I cut the foam with a hot wire table. Cost about $30 to build the hot wire table and I can cut as much foam as I want.

      May i ask how you built one of those! been looking for good ideas! 🙂

  • Mack

    I thought the same thing about the LWRC. I like LWRC so this rifle is one fine lookin lady! 🙂

  • Beranimus

    Start pushing.

    Sorry if this sounds silly but a two part question here, would this be considered an SBR? Second question when you carry this in your car and what not in two pieces is it still considered a firearm or because it is broken down no problems with the law. I live in NYS 🙁

    • Beranimus

      1 Yes it’s a short barreled rifle and requires an NFA tax stamp (which I have) . And 2 I’m not really firmilier with NY firearms laws so I can’t tell you for sure.

  • Mack

    Thank you! Hat tip to the case and the rifle!

    Very nice high-quality build with top-shelf components, and a beautiful finish to boot.
