SULZER Firearms MK1-SPC Magpul 6.8SPC Magazine Compatible Receiver Set

    SULZER Firearms MK1-SPC Magpul 6.8SPC Magazine Compatible Receiver Set (1)

    Magpul PMAGs designed for the 6.8mm Remington SPC cartridge were developed in partnership with LWRCI. These magazines are larger than the standard GI mags and so far they were only compatible with the LWRCI Six8 series of rifles which receivers were built around these magazines. Apparently, now there is another option on the market – Sulzer Firearms MK1-SPC AR-15 receiver set.

    Having the magazine specially made for the cartridge and the weapon build for that magazine/cartridge is always a better solution than trying to fit the cartridge into the magazine and weapon system it was not designed to be used in. That being said, such 6.8 SPC specific receivers and magazines will definitely help to increase the reliability of the build. These magazines and receivers should be a perfect choice not only for the 6.8mm SPC cartridge but for many other cartridges based on it (or rather based on the .30 Remington) which have identical case head and base dimensions. Perhaps the most notable example of such a cartridge is the .224 Valkyrie. These receivers will also be perfect for building a rifle chambered in one of the countless wildcat cartridges based on the 6.8mm SPC case such as the GPC line of wildcat cartridges designed by Mad Dog Weapon Systems.
