    LMT CQBPS16

    After a bunch of research and reading I think I have decided on the LMT CQBPS16 AR platform. I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with it.

    Things I curious about are:
    1. How do you like the barrel swap option?
    2. Have you put the 6.8 SPC barrel and bolt in it and how does it shot?
    3. Have you put an 22lr conversion kit in it and how does it shot?
    4. Have you put the .204 Ruger barrel on and how does it shot?

    Any positive or negative feedback welcome.

    There's a metric frack-ton on info on the LMT MRP series rifle here. Use the search function first to see if what you're looking for has already been asked and answered.

    Oh I have been. But still have a few questions, hence the reason for the post.

    I have the MRP in standard length and another in rifle length.

    They are top-notch. I have no complaints about the LMT MRP's whatsoever.. iMO they are worth every bit of the extra $ they command.

    The barrel changing option is great, if you plan on changinging barrels it is the way to go.

    Buy, shoot, enjoy.

    I shoot the LMT Piston in 12"chrome lined sbr and 16" DI stainless barrel and BCG . I love the rifle and have about 6000 rounds through the piston barrel and 750-1000 through the DI SS barrel. I prefer the piston setup. The recoil is almost identical in both and the piston keeps the BCG and lower fire control parts much cleaner. The DI gun will run fine clean or dirty so it doesn't matter, I just prefer upper and lower stay cleaner. The piston has extra parts that get dirty but they are robust and stay hidden under the rail. It is the nicest rifle I own and is a keeper! Disclaimer- I am a firearms dealer and sell many brands of ar15s including LMT. The MRP is my favorite.

    After a ton of research I purchased a LMT CQB MRP, I love it! It is everything I was hoping it would be, I researched the AR options available for several months before making this purchase, Like an above poster stated there is a ton of info out there! The caliber change option played a part in my choice, it's fast and easy, (though the torque wrench is a cheapy).

    Buy it you will not be sorry or dissatisfied!

    Things I curious about are:
    1. How do you like the barrel swap option?

    The idea behind the barrel swap is cool, I do not use it very often because I do not want to have to re zero my optic and iron sights each time.

    2. Have you put the 6.8 SPC barrel and bolt in it and how does it shot?

    The factory LMT barrel is Spec one if I am not mistaken and I have found spec one ammo a little more difficult to locate. Because of this I have yet to try it out.

    3. Have you put an 22lr conversion kit in it and how does it shot?

    No experience

    4. Have you put the .204 Ruger barrel on and how does it shot?

    No experience

    Other then that I love the rifle and have had zero issue other then magazine failures. If i was to do it over again I would probably go with the DI gun for a little less coin.

    I just got my own LMT CQB twelve days ago. I started collecting handguns 20 years ago. Until a month ago, I have no interest in any AR type rifle. Then one weekend, a group of my friends and I went shooting in a private land owned by another buddy. They had with them 4 ARs and a WW2 carbine. When I got home, I started looking at AR and more AR rifles. I actually just got home today shooting 200 rounds of problem free rounds. I love this rifle!!

    You guys that get MRPs as your very first AR are pretty much ruined.....i ran 6520s (1 kiss/1 optics ready conv.) happily until I got my first MRP, at which point for myself at least I stopped looking at anything else...pretty sure I'll run MRPs til their being removed from hopefully my wrinkled old dead hands

    While I won't tell OP to go Search Off.....I will recommend that the best way to learn about the rifles in question is to simply do a search on here, then read the MRP BADNESS threads on the kiddie site, and then top it off with a google session. There was a time when MRP info was next to nothing on the web a few yrs. ago, but now a search will yield all you want to know and perhaps more.

    eta....great pic dohc, you can spot the talented photographers on M4C usually by just looking at their watermarks. One of these days I might get me one of those nifty things in my pics

    I was very lucky in getting an LMT CQB MRP (DI) for my first AR15, and after discovering this forum, BOY did I make the right choice! My 18" LMT SS barrel finally arrived & I had a chance to do my first barrel swap - 2 minutes later I had a 2nd rifle. While I don't plan on any caliber changes yet, the option of using the 18" SS barrel for longer range bench stuff & using the 16" barrel for HD, SHTF really appealed to me right from the beginning. For me, the only thing I needed to do with the stock LMT was to change the trigger to an SSA-E & buy as much ammo as my wallet could afford.

    MWC...I've shot a 18" SS barrel now for 3-4 yrs. solid, and it has shown no signs of letting it's uber accuracy go. The single cut/hand lapped Rock 5R SS MRP barrels are perhaps the finest crafted barrels I've seen with detail. My 5R SS barrels take like a patch to be cleaned...and that was since day 1. Hopefully your new one will give you as much as mine has.

    I'm curious however if your 18" you just got came in the "LMT blackened" finish like all the MWS SS barrel options come in?

    Also can you tell me the imprinted specs on yours? And does it have a star marking in the chamber?

    Thanks in advance

    Trident - Mine came in straight stainless finish with only the following marked on the top rear of the barrel - "MP SPR 1/7 SS".
    I can get a pic up later if you want, but it's 90 degrees here in downtown Cleveburg so I'm spending the day in the pool drinking Bombay Saphire & tonic.

    here's my 16" SS MRP barrel I recv'd last Thursday from LMT with a new LMT Rifle Length upper.

    Still made by Mike Rock?

    Outstanding gentlemen...sometimes a good forum can deliver exact answers that were requested, and on top of it do it in mins. or hours.

    Seeing that both you guys got Rock 5R SS models makes me feel warm and fuzzy again about this topic...might not last forever, but for today at least all is right with the monolithic universe

    So many unique aspects of the MRP barrel, be it the angled drilled gas ports, superbly designed super lopro proprietary gas block, the unique perfectly straight gas tubes that index into the chassis, but having them being always spun by Mike Rock is perhaps the biggest advantage to the MRP barrel. As usual I got caught rambling on about MRPs




    Thanks guys for that info, and it's awesome to see you both get a real piece of fine china with those two barrels. I have copious amts. of accuracy evals. on tons of factory .223/5.56 ammo through both the 16" and 18" models, as well as a significant amt. of velocity data on them. Feel free to hit me up and I'll hook you up with all that data.

    eta...hell Ride, I just saw that you got that sweet stretch pic'd above. Seriously, nothing like a stretch! Congrats, and next time let a brother know instead of shock and awing me.

    Thanks Trident!! You're info and PM's have been priceless. I agree.. The stretch is fantastic! I'll be SBR'ing the CQB length soon, then it's all rifle length for me. I'm a believer!

    What are the markings that designate the barrels as being a Mike Rock product? The star?

    Yeah, the MRP owners here are always helpful!

    I got a rifle length MRP earlier this year, but I've too busy to run it yet. I ordered a red dot for it this week and hope to run the gun in the next couple of weeks. Looking forward to it.

    TRIDENT82 since you seem to be the authority on the MRP platform, do you have any idea on when the LM8's are going to hit the market and if/when they will offer a stretch chassis?
