The IC DI from LWRCI now available in 300 BLK

LWRC International out of Cambridge, Maryland, just made their IC-DI model available in 300 Blackout.

Perhaps not the biggest step in terms of “R&D” from LWRCI, but it just shows the demand for 300 Blackout is out there. I just wish that the ammunition was a lot less expensive.

The IC DI 300 BLK is also available with a California compliant configuration.



From LWRCI’s press release:

Expanding on the huge success of its award winning Direct Impingement line, LWRCI has officially launched the IC DI 300 BLK. The IC DI 300 BLK model is the newest member of the IC DI family whose design was born out of the US Military M4 PIP program that called for longer barrel life, full ambidexterity, better reliability and user configurable floating rail system.

“Based on the continued popularity of the 300 BLK platform it is a natural line extension for LWRCI and our IC DI line”, says David Ridley, senior vice president sales and marketing. “The LWRCI-DI 300 excels on all counts, offering our customers an accurate advanced DI rifle at a price that will surprise you. It is truly a ‘Step-Up’ from the basic direct impingement rifles on the market now in 300 BLK”

Built from the ground up the IC DI 300 BLK model, is a completely new Direct Impingement rifle chambered in 300 BLK- featuring many of the same performance attributes found in its popular Gas Piston – Luxury AR line up.  LWRCI’s commitment to craftsmanship is clearly evident in the IC DI 300BLK delivering high performance accuracy and quality the discerning shooter demands and innovation customers have come to expect from LWRCI.  Custom rifle features including:  MonoforgeÔ upper, modular one-piece free float rail, LWRCI cold hammer-forged cold hammer forged heavy barrel, fully ambidextrous lower controls: Mag Release, Bolt Catch/Release and Selector switch, angled ergonomic Fore Grip, Mil-Spec 6-position buffer tube and LWRCI proprietary advanced DI Bolt Carrier group with keyless gas key.

    Got the 556 version w/giessele SAA-E trigger installed on order……waiting for a call from my FFL sometime this week.

  • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

    Its cheaper, lighter, and it uses the correct gas system; and now available in .300blk. Why do they make the other rifle again?

    • ostiariusalpha

      The Newmans of the world have credit cards too, I guess. Gotta’ cater to all the market niches if there’s money to be made.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Heh, remember 6.8mm? I’m not even sure that LWRC does.

    • Jack

      Is that like 300blk but a few years older?

      I heard all the cool kids are getting into .25 SPC. I asked LWRC when their DI version would be coming.

      No answer yet.

    DI is for poor people.

      Guns are for poor people.

      Unfortunately a LWRC DI is still not for “poor people”
