There’s a limited edition LWRC/OTG IC-A5 Bazooka Green rifle incoming. The setup was featured in the video “Urban Combat Survival CQB and Room Clearing” made by Garand Thumb and Orion Training Group. Manufactured by LWRC, this 5.56 rifle is only going to be available through Louisiana Firearms, LLC. The price is $2,880.
LWRC @ TFB:
The IC-A5 features a short-stroke piston system with a two-position adjustable gas block. The 16″ barrel is cold hammer forged and spiral fluted. I think the black rail panels go really well with the Bazooka Green Cerakote.
Here is the description of the pre-order:
LIMITED EDITION LWRC/OTG IC-A5 Bazooka Green – Product Description
Directly descended from the rifles developed by LWRC to meet the requirements for the U.S. Army Individual Carbine program, the IC-A5 is built for high performance.
The IC-A5 is the latest model in the IC – Individual Carbine series. Customers called for an adjustable gas block and the longer 12” SPR style rail system on the same rifle. LWRC listened- the IC-A5 is designed with a low profile 2 position adjustable gas block allowing the shooter to compensate for running a suppressor with the added benefit of the longer modular rail system.
The upper rail section on the IC-A5 is an aesthetically pleasing special cutback version which allows us to use the low profile gas block and at the same time keep the full 12” modular rails available on the sides and bottom of the hand guards. This IC-A5 brings together features of both the IC Enhanced and the IC-SPR in one package.
Like all IC models the IC-A5 is constructed using the highest quality materials, built on LWRC’s patented self-regulating short-stroke gas piston system, machined from materials that belong to the super alloy family of steel alloys most often used in aerospace, LWRC raises the bar on reliability and ease of maintenance- delivering the highest level of performance. The gas-piston system can be accessed quickly by loosening two thumb screws.
Dual Control fully ambidextrous lower receiver includes bolt catch and release, magazine release and fire control access from both sides of the IC-A5. LWRC Enhanced Fire Control Group comes standard. Our investment castings are x-rayed for imperfections and nickel-boron coated for a smooth crisp trigger pull with positive reset.
The LWRC IC-A5 uses manufactured- NiCorr treated cold Hammer Forged spiral fluted barrel that is 20% lighter than unfluted barrels of the same diameter. The increased surface area reduces heat – speeds up cooling. Nickel-boron coated bolt carrier delivers unparalleled wear resistance, corrosion resistance and permanent lubricity.
The LWRC IC-A5 comes complete with, LWRC Skirmish Back Up Iron Sights, Ambidextrous Charging Handle, LWRC Adjustable Compact Stock, Magpul MOE+ Grip and A2 Birdcage flash hider.
