While the PDW is a fine weapon it is made exclusively for CQB work. Ammo velocity's are significantly reduced due to such a short barrel. If that is your intended use for the rifle then it will work great. If you want a more versatile firearm that will reach out further the 10.5" and 12.7" ICA5 would be a better choice. A lot of 556 ammo is velocity dependent for expansion and fragmentation.

Personally, I don't know if I could wrap my mind around a $200 tax and a year wait to trim 2" of barrel off a 14.7. Maybe if I already had the lower on a Form 1 and was just looking for a 5.56 upper. I don't really like the ballistics of 5.56 out of a short barrel anyway (or at all, really). Do yourself a favor and get a Six8 A5 10.5" booya!

Im curious about the ic-enhanced vs the ic-a5. It seems like everyone is going with the a5 nowadays. Me, i dont care about the longer rail. But i read where the president or vp of lwrc said that the a5 is the best all-around carbine lwrc is making, and that if you could only have one rifle, the a5 would be the best (this was said in response to the a5 being awarded the nra golden bullseye). Why would the a5 be better suited than the enhanced for a "one and only gun"? Is it more accurate? Does it weigh less? I know the site says they weigh the same, but it also says the ic-a2 i have weighs the same as both the aforementioned, which i find hard to believe since its unfluted and has a full quad rail.

That's really the big difference. The IC-A5 has the longer rail which people tend to like better than the shorter rail. If you prefer the shorter rail, the IC-E is very similar to the A5.

Thanks for the reply. I guess im just worried that before i plop down the money for another one if theres any differences that arent readily apparent. Differences/idiosyncracies you only notice after owning them for awhile. But im more worried that one may somehow be slightly more accurate than the other owing to some weird attribute of the different gas blocks (maybe different barrel harmonics or something crazy like that). I also wonder if they balance similarly (if one one is more front-heavy than the other). It just seems to me that the a5 is more of an spr-type rifle, while the enhanced is more of a fighting carbine.

For the most part, the only difference between the IC-E and the ICA5 would be the length or the rail and no bayonet lug on the A5. If you need rail space to hand stuff lights lights, IR sights, etc and like to run your support hand as far forward as you can get it then the A5 is a good choice. If that doesn't matter the E is fine. Operation and accuracy should be the same between the models.

Either one will likely be more accurate than most shooters.

Hey logan, What's the main difference in the IC-A5 and the IC-SPR? I'm new to the rifles. Looking at maybe running a supressor, but not all the time.

Thanks man.

The A5 has the adjustable gas block, pretty much the only difference. Since you may suppress the rifle definetly go with the A5.

Would the SPR still be able to be run supressed?

I own both rifles but haven't taken the plunge into suppressors yet. But I did buy the A5 in case I ever decide to. There are guys here who run suppressors full time and I am sure they will chime in to give you the specs. The A5 gas block is a 2 position, normal/suppressed. So it is more set up to run suppressed. What length barrel are looking to get?

Well, I looked at the IC A5 at the local dealer and the tag said 16.1" but the rifle had a pinned flash hider and was 14.7" so confused on that. I like the 14.7 barrel, feels balanced in my paws....
