Well, I can honestly say I was glad I walked all the way to the end of the range yesterday, because the reps from Lancer were showcasing their new 7.62 x 51 L30 modern sporting rifle. And there was no line to shoot them. Bonus! I gotta say, I love me some carbon fiber: I once dropped a grand on a Dunhill carbon fiber fountain pen, so I was positively salivating over these beautiful precision rifles . . .
These rifles are available in five configurations: Heavy Metal, Designated Marksman, Long Range Tactical, Modern Battle Rifle, and Hunter. They feature ambidextrous bolt releases and oversized magazine release buttons. They are designed to be used with the SR-25 / DPMS style magazine, as well as Lancer’s own new L7 Advanced Warfighter Magazine. And I really like how the mag well extensions are removable so that the rifle can be adapted to specific missions.
A couple of the test samples were set up for competition shooting, and they really had a race car look and feel to them. Even the muzzle brakes looked sleek and modern.
And did I mention that the handguards are made of carbon fiber?
