Built with operational performance in mind, the new LMT Spec
War upper was designed in partnership with some of Americas most specialized
warfighters. This upper was built to utilize the new 12.5" MRP barrel as well
as other 12" or greater barrels. We removed the built in forward QD swivels and
extended the length over the traditional CQB length to improve ergonomics and
accessory real estate. What this does is give the user a better fighting edge
and increased lethality.
Among keeping the classic barrel swap capability, the Spec
War focuses on the need to maintain a rigid platform for mounted laser aiming
and illumination devices, crucial for night operations. Additionally, this
upper receiver features MLOK pattern rail mounting platform and a continuous
picatinny top rail. For those who require use of a QD sling, a single point is
available in the aft portion of the receiver.
The patented LMT monolithic rail platform (MRP) upper
receiver, has a receiver and handguard that are made from a single piece of
forged aerospace aluminum. The barrel is held in place with a proprietary
locking system that utilizes two locking bolts accessible from the right side
of the receiver. The only tool needed is a standard T-30 Torx bit to tighten
the bolts. This receiver requires the patented LMT monolithic barrel assembly
which has a low profile gas block with straight gas tube.
