    Complete Garbage. I don't even know how those ass wipes are still in business.
    I have mixed feelings about my Six8 but, it is a relatively early one. I will say it functions 100% and takes hogs well. Like some other options I have tried, I find it to be a bit of a pig in the weight department. A thermal scope and suppressor almost make it a fixed position only rifle.

    My 6.8SPC PSA AR-15 is more accurate and a whole lot lighter. I don't like the AR-15 magazines though. Magpul Six8 magazines are definitely better.

    What is your problem or concern with LWRC? Definitely not perfect but, not terrible either. They had the first piston 6.8 solution that really worked so, I cut them some slack for being an early adopter. Even GM had to take several bites of the diesel Apple to get a reasonable solution in public hands.

    Seems that you could use something ballistically superior to a pistol caliber, yet still short and handy. I would personally opt for a Steyr AUG, x95 sbr, SCAR16 sbr, CZ Bren2 sbr, or 10.5-11.5 AR15 SBR.

    I have found LWRC International a fine company who builds superior firearms and provides great service.

    I proudly own five (5) LWRC International rifles and each and every one functions flawlessly. A 16" REPR, a 20" REPR Mk-2 w/ AAC Mk-13 suppressor, two (2) M6 IC's (one suppressed) in 5.56 NATO and my pride and joy M6 A5 10-1/2" SBR w/ Gentech Trex-T suppressor. I've yet to have a part fail, never had a failure to feed or fire, their fit and finish is still near perfect except for the abuse I impart upon them. Each is as accurate as I am able to shoot them. I don't know about their warrantees system, as I never had need to engage it. If I order a part from them, it ships the next business day.

    Couldn't ask for more.

    I know that you said no 10mm, but deals can be found if patient and your requirements screams 10mm quite honestly. I recently bought a 500 round case of WWB 180 grain 10mm for $235 plus tax and free shipping from Midway. I hardly shoot 10mm, just use for familiarization and that's it. I recommend a 10mm Banshee from CMMG. Feeds from G20 mags.

    markm probably hasn't touched an LWRC product in a year ending in either '2X or '1X, either.
    " Political tags — such as [...], communist, democrat, [...], fascist, liberal, conservative, [...] — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort. "
