LaRue OSR now called OBR (Optimized Battle Rifle)

LaRue Tactical was forced to renamed their OSR rifle after Dick Swan of A.R.M.S trademarked the term “OSR”. Dick has been going after many tactical gun companies. Earlier this year he successfully sued Troy Industries and is currently litigating against LaRue and Magpul.

The good news is that the OBR, after much delay, is shipping.

Thanks to Isaac for the info.

    Brian, your email address is invalid. Judging by other posts you have made on other websites you are almost certainty connected with ARMS. This blog is not for propaganda.

    Uh, Steve, you deleted the comments from "Brian" ...

    Those comments are part of litigation right now and should not be removed.

      @Mark LaRue Mark, I emailed you on 6 Feb asking if you wanted them deleted. You did not reply and because they were a violation of my comment policy I deleted them. I was not aware they were part of a litigation. All you told me was that your lawyers were interested in information about "Brian", although you did not specify what info you wanted.

      Please feel free to email me.
