    Spectre Ballistics Light Pratical Carbine

    Have you seen this yet? There's a thread on the other site.

In preparation for this outcome we have developed a new receiver set that uses common AR-15 components to build a bolt action rifle. While it is regrettable that this design might be necessary in the future months we are very proud of this design.

    Introducing the Spectre Ballistics International Light Practical Carbine. The Spectre L.P.C for short.

    The Spectre Ballistics Light Practical Carbine is a modern, customizable bolt action hunting rifle designed to fire intermediate cartridges. The L.P.C uses commonly available barrels, triggers, bolts, stocks, grips, hand guards, and magazines to be a truly customizable firearm. Ideal for hunters, target shooters, farmers, and collectors.

    This receiver set will be prototyped immediately and be brought to market Q2 2020.

    https://spectreballistics.com/all-pr...eiver-set.html

    Specifications:
    • Material: 6061-T6 Aluminium
    • Finish: Hard Black Anodized or Cerakote.
    • Caliber: Intermediate calibers
    • Classification: Non-Restricted (FRT Pending)
    • Action Type: Bolt Action


    The purpose of this receiver set is to replace your AR-15 receiver set in the event of a ban.

    At least we can hopefully keep a bolt action rifle. AR-15 parts used for the Spectre L.P.C:
    • Barrel
    • Bolt (not the carrier)
    • Buffer tube
    • Stock
    • Handguard & Barrel nut
    • Trigger
    • Grip
    • Magazines




    Nov 25 Update:

    It's been awhile since we've had any visual progress to report, however don't worry we've been making great progress on the LPC. Over the weekend we managed to complete the first prototype upper, and assemble the first rifle. We will be making some minor changes to the upper in the next iteration to remove some sharp edges.

    With a 20" pencil barrel, light weight 10" m-lok handguard, and a magpul stock, the rifle weights under 5lbs loaded. 5.1 lbs with the optic pictured. We are now working on the bolt body which we hope to have completed shortly.

    We will have the rifle at the Edmonton gun show this weekend.

    The one in the video has a bolt assembly that is closed by spring action. Pull back, let go. The Specter Ballistics LPC is completely manually operated. Pull open, push closed.

    I was wondering about that, I figured they’d go after a spring return version as ‘easily converted’.

    I recall seeing another English neutered AR where the bolt opened after every shot and locked back, thumbing what would’ve been the forward assist on a typical rifle was required to send the bolt back into battery. IIRC, it was in the news because ‘gunsRbad’ and soccer moms were fretting about the rate of fire.

    Kind of makes me think of a Corvette with a 2" wood block screwed onto the underside of the gas pedal.

    Looks good except for the square edges on the trigger guard making it look a bit "chunky".
