I think you can tell your friend that it would more than likely sell as long as cost of the receiver sets as well as the mags stays reasonable, if mags are $$$ it may not take off. I would be in to build a rifle and see what gains I could get. Now it would be a hard choice as to what cartridge to build it in, soooo many choices

A 30-round 6.5 Grendel magazine on the Six8 frame has my interest- I would love to have a .224 Grendel with higher capacity mags than is currently available.

I could be interested in the new family of cartridges in the .224 or 6mm bore.

What kind of investment from the “crowd” are you looking for? It all sounds very interesting and promising.

In for a couple of receiver sets and a pile of 6.5g mags if everything proves reliable.

I like simple!

I’ve been a part of indiegogo gun part campgains before, I’ve bought mags prior to having the gun before, and I like receiver-set built ARs.

I don’t know exactly how you want to quantify interest, but these proposals certainly interest me.

Are the other brand receiver sets compatible with the LWRC receivers or will this be more like lr308/ar10 with different manufacturers having different patterns?

I'll tell you that I was waiting for this since LWRC designed the lower, and when I was heavily invested in the 6.8 Spec II, and back then I was ready. I'll tell you that today I don't have any 6.8 stuff at all, not because I didn't like it, but because I was forced to sell all the guns, brass, dies, projos and powders I had for taxes, and when I bought new ones after they fixed their mistake and refunded me, but I was bitter on the AR at the time and went with a Tavor for myself and an AK for my son.

I'll also tell you, that I'm very interested as I'm getting back on my feet, and kinda wanting an AR.

I need to buy a new bass guitar and multitrack recorder first, so I'll be a year or so away.

Receiver sets would have to come way down in price for me.

The beauty of the existing rounds are that they fit in an AR15 platform, with receiver sets that can be had for less than a C-note.

I know...... go be poor somewhere else

Do these receivers take standard BCGs?

This might push me back into 224V or similar again.

I would be in for a few. If the receiver sets are similarly price to a standard forged set, you should have no issue selling them. The LWRC set is WAY to expensive. If you get below $20 per magazine, you can sell a boat load. If you can make a reliable 25 round Grendel mag, you will sell a boat load.

When the 90gr Valkeryie load hit the streets, it was funny to me no one pursued this.  Wondered if a 95+ gr load could be developed with a longer C.O.A.L.

BTW I've had Six8 mags for YEARS with no Six8 to put them in.....and after loading some 6.8 for reference the second thing I did was load a few Grendel in.

If LWRC had ever really mainstreamed these, I'd probably own 2 - 3. Their production must be very small as sets and rifles seem rare.  If they would offer their stripped monolithic SPR upper too that would be cool.

It sounds like the AR12 of my dreams.

I'd be majorly in.

Off the top of my head, I'd love to see one firing 6mm Hagar:


I'm not sure if this is possible, but would it be possible to produce a 5.56 compatible version of this magazine?

5.56 loaded to 2.38" could likely equal the performance of .224 Valkyrie, while utilizing dirt cheap brass.



If you could fire both 5.56 Long as well as regular factory 5.56 ammo from the same rifle, I think that would be hugely popular. You get long range performance and cheap factory ammo out of the same rifle.

Likewise, a 5.56 compatible Six8 mag could open up a whole new world for  6x45, 6.8x45, 7.62x45...

This hypothetical, would be the only reason I would purchase a Six8/Sulzer receiver set.  Never made sense to buy it just to be pigeon holed into one magazine, but if they expand the COAL with metal mags, sign me up.

I'd say "I ain't crowd funding anything" and wait for real money to be injected. Then I'd let other, more enthusiastic fps chasers beta test the new design. Once reliability and cost comes down, I'd be in.

I think I would be inclined to build an 18” or 20” Grendel rifle on such a receiver set to compliment my lightweight 12.5” hunting pistol.

Doesnt work like that here. The receiver sets all use standard AR15 parts except the magazine and magazine catch.

You missed the question, let mecbe more specific.

Will your upper receiver work on an LWRC lower?

Will your lower receiver work with an LWRC upper receiver?

Will your lower receiver work with LWRC/Magpul six8 magazines?

Will your metal mags work in the LWRC lower receiver?

Sorry if you covered this in the op.

So, I am in for mags, receivers, etc depending on cost and offerings.

If you guys can get around litigious guy who has a patent on larger bolt faces (I forget his company name, out of NV), get a consistent standard supply of large bolts for the fat cats and make them work with this new mag, that will be a home run. The Timberwolf and Sabercat will benefit greatly. All cartridges would benefit too obviously, but those would see a significant improvement in bullet choices.

Looks like it may be a while 'til you get to it, but if this would allow a person to build a 358 Yeti that could take advantage of the Barnes TTSX 200 grain with a G1 BC of .369, that would be all it would take to push me over the edge. I'm not sure there will be enough additional length for that. But if you were to produce an AR-15 that could launch 200 grain bullets with a .369 BC out the muzzle at 2500 fps, I am sure you could sell a few of those. I haven't run those numbers, but I would guess that's a nearly 500 yard elk round - from an AR-15.
If you build it, people will come. They will most definitely come.

Yes 5.56 versions and ".308 case" versions are possible, too.  Seriously, it's a slam dunk.  The first ones to be made will be 6.8SPC case and 6.5 Grendel case because those two platforms offer more case capacity than 5.56, and, cartridges like our "Fat Cats" are not as mainstream yet.

Thats great to hear. I really do think the 5.56 brass versions will be tremendously popular. Being able to shoot cheap factory 5.56, as well as "5.56 Long" handloads out of the same rifle, would make for an ideal blend of practical /performance.

In terms of the 6.8 and 6.5 brass based cartridges, any plans for a 6mm cartridge optimized for the new 2.39 col? A good 6mm is really whats missing.

Also, for partnerships - have you contacted PSA? I think that would be a huge jump start - getting a PSA "AR12" for $600-$700 would do wonders for increasing popularity for new shooters.

Metal mags that fit the SIX8 mag set is something I have been advocating, and waiting for, for many moons.   I get most things done with 2.295" OAL, but I shot alot of pigs with the 110 TTSX's when we first started testing the new, heavier bullets in bolt guns.   Most of those loads were 2.333 to 2.40"

If you can pull off getting metal mags made, which allow for longer loading that will fit my two existing SIX8 guns, I'm in...
