    Sporting AR

    New to the market soon in the US. Not the 1st but new.



    Yesterday a video surfaced on a YouTube account under the name Matt Kennedy with B&H Gun Sales (or B&H Police Supply) out of Merritt Island, FL. The video is about a new lower called the SCR (Sporting Configurable Rifle) that is currently a prototype from Ares Defense. It looks to be a traditional style monte carlo stock, which would make it legal in states like California and New York.

    While not the first AR lower of its type, it certainly looks to be a more traditional style stock. According to the video it is set to be officially released at NRA later this month and will ship with an upper similar to the one in the video.

    Looking at the design, I am a little interested in what they did with the buffer tube, because there is nothing to the rear of the upper that would act as a buffer tube. According to the video, it will accept any upper 223/556 or 300BLK. I would also think that it could accept any other upper that is able to be used on a standard AR lower, but that remains to be seen.

    A kludge (or kluge)[pronunciation?] is a workaround, quick-and-dirty solution, clumsy, inelegant, difficult to extend, hard to maintain yet effective and quick solution to a problem, and a rough synonym to the term "jury rig". This term is used in diverse fields such as computer science, aerospace engineering, internet slang, and evolutionary neuroscience.

    -from the wikipedia entry

    Tastes may vary but I think that that thing is fugly

    Apparently it is a rat tail system similar to FN FAL, my guess is that would restrict the uppers you could use with it as well, or not ?

    It says it accepts any upper. I guess you'd just have to use the modified carrier in them.

    Anyone calling this ugly can't have seen other attempts at "New York legal" ARs.

    It's fugly as hell but it gives people in ban states the opportunity to own the best semi auto rifle. Ingenuity over tyranny.

    I think the term you are looking for is anti-gravitational sporting AR
