Looks very interesting!

But what's the concept behind the modular option for bolt assist? Not that I use mine often, but I can't see why it would hurt?

Could you explain the concept of the disposable barrel wrench?

It looks cool, but what is the point of this.

Just to have a monolithic upper and removable forward assist?

Okay, a "proprietary" barrel wrench. That makes sense!

Looks very interesting.

WOW Me sporting big time wood!

Big bore-

When can I buy mine? Are they delivering now or a year from now? I hope now!

Nice Hijack! Your buddy must be Jealous or Nervous. Which one is it?


If Eric (of Vltor) designed it, I think he did well. I'm a customer for life, or at least until General Dynamics buys them.....

The idea is to make the upper receiver adapt to the user and the purpose... you can have an FA but some applications and users dont want it really - subguns, accuracy rigs, whatever.

The design also allows for the use of add-ons of interest to current military development.
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 3:00:09 PM EST
Totally freaking sweet!

A few questions though.
Does this take standard bolts/bolt carriers/charging handles?
Judging by the design I'm pretty sure it is, but does it free float the barrel?
Last but not least, is VLTOR ready to dominate the modular AR15 upper market?

It looks like the one-piece upper/rail market is going to get alot more competitve.

Some folks in Texas are working on this:

Hey! Nice picture! Mark should do like a run of 100 autographed prints... will they be offered framed? matted?

Not even going to ask how the forward extrusion is joined to the receiver body

Yes... standard bolt/carrier/ch

Standard barrels and yes they free float...

What?

Where did that come from? I am more than sure that is not being discussed.
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 3:40:47 PM EST
I like the Laure,

My guess on the modular defector/FA is that to have it intergated they would have to use a bigger extrustion or billet and would requare a lot more machine work.

I totally agree, Hi Jackers have no class...

BTW, very impressive concept. I hope to see it thursday at SHOT.

Kudos.

Incrediable work from the relatively unknown underdogs...

Outstanding.
Link Posted: 2/7/2006 4:36:54 PM EST
Very, very interesting...

The frst time a scanned throught the pictures I was thinking it had a QD system for standard barrels! I guess I got a bit ahead of myself but it still looks like a great system. I'm looking forwrd to seeing some more details like weight as well as some hands on reviews.
