M6-IC-A5

Postby Z.A.K. » Wed Apr 03, 2013 10:46 pm

This looks like a great rifle and am curious if there will be a 10.5'' barrel set up sometime in the near future? if not, are there plans for making an M6A2 with a 2 position gas block? I really like the low profile 2 position gas block on the M6-IC-A5, it looks real slick.

Thanks for your time.

ZAK, like you, I have posted here asking about this rifle and got nothing. BUT, my dealer here, at my request, asked their LWRC rep about this rifle for me within the last week. The answer he got was that this rifle should be shipping in about 8 months. There is hope.

Interestingly, they received a green REPR last week. It's purty.

Can anyone at corporate confirm or deny the timeline on the IC A5s?

The company has yet to even officially announce an M6ICA5, never mind confirm when it will be shipping.

I don't understand how it'd be functionally different than the standard IC, unless having an extra couple inches of rail under and around the gas block instead of a bayonet lug really does it for ya.

To me there are pros and cons. I prefer a barrel mounted front sight like the discontinued A3 or standard IC however after taking delivery of my IC (14.7 w/ pinned FH) it feels extremely short. Feels very compact which is great! Feels like a SBR almost. As great as that is I would like another rifle with a little more rail to make it easier to place my hand forward on the rail. SPR would be great however I want the adjustable gas block for suppressor capability if I ever move to a free state which makes the ICA5 the perfect choice.

I actually found an 18" A5 DMR locally with an ambi lower but I would like to wait and pick up the new IC model with the 16" barrel.

Truth be told, I was honestly surprised when I realized the rail/hand guard on the IC is Carbine length. Not sure if the piston is also or if it's mid length since the gas block is right where an A-frame FSB would be located on a typical M4/M4A1. Makes sense though since it was designed as a true M4 replacement. Even the weight (~7 lbs out of the box) is a testament to that.

The handguards/rails are mid-length. I'm pretty sure I measured my rails at 9" +/-(I'll double check when I get home.) That's middy size. Carbines are 7"

I'll have to double check when I get home but the catalog I got with my new repr has the IC A5 in it.
