I got a new toy at work earlier this week. We finally have started to get rid of our M16A1 patrol rifles and are replacing them with the LWRC M6A1 stretch model.  I went out to LWRC in Maryland about a month ago and helped pick up all 75 rifles.  The LWRC staff was very nice and put on a good presentation for us.  We had a fun time knocking down some steel before lunch.  I had to wait for the past month until this week to get property numbers issued to the rifles before I could take possession of mine.  I've only put about 300 rounds though it so far, but I am pleased.  This one is a mid length system with a auto carrier and a H2 buffer.  Recoil is very mild.  The only gripe I have is the PMAGS that came with it don't drop free.  I tried some 2007 and 2008 PMAGS also and none dropped.  USGI mags are fine though.  I'm not a big Eotech fan but it works fine.  Hopefully once the snow stops, I can put some more rounds down range.  Here are some crappy pictures I snapped in the office.  I will try to take some better ones later.  David

You can take the high points off the Pmags to make them drop free by rubbing them over a sheet of medium grit sandpaper on a flat surface.

Those wouldn't be transferrable pre-86 M16A1's, would they?

Is that an M6A1 Stretch with a 14.7" barrel?

Yes, with a pinned phantom flash supressor.  David

Thanks for the tip.  We have over 200 M16A1's.  Mostly Colts, Hydromatics and at least one H&R that I've seen.  Most of them are scheduled to get turned in and eventually converted to flattops with 14.7 or 16 inch barrels.  David

Wow, didn't know they were making this variant. Thank you.

If I were to purchase an LWRC, that's the model I'd get. Looks very nice!
