556 PredatAR delivered to my ffl only 11 days after order. Won't get to shoot it until Mon. but I'm in love. I'd been wanting a pencil barrel for awhile and price was right for my first Larue. Skinny forearm is awesome. Poor point and shoot camera but the rifle is artwork. I thought there was some kind of newfangled catch machined somewhere as I couldn't get the halves seperated at first without a fight because it is so tight, unreal tight. Is this standard with Larue rifles? Still contemplating optic and light choice because the rifle is so light and nice.

That's really nice. What's the barrel length?

Your pics really aren't that bad for a pt-n-shoot camera.

Let us know how it performs and with what make(s) of ammo.

:cool:

I'm picking one up at their Range Day on the 12th. :cool: Can't wait.

Looks great. :faint: And yes, LaRue's are machined to be pretty tight. After a range session or two it will be perfect.

what part of the upper or lower does L'Rue machine ?
You DO know they buy those piece and not manufacturer in house, right ?

how will shooting it loosen the fit between the two ?


OP, there is NO benefit to the upper/lower fit being rediculiously tight, you should be able to push the pin out by hand and flip the two seperate w/o tools.

I was under the impression that LT machined the lower and upper with integral ff handguard from billet and that they used their low profile gas block. Rail covers and rail sections are Larue made and specific. Barrel is a Lothar Walther and FCG is Geissele. Came with magpul moe stock that I swapped for a CTR and moe grip. Brake is SF [they timed and set it for free--i hate playing with the shims and with Rocksett]. I added Troy sights,tangodown grip, and vtac sling I had.

I believed the receiver extension is Larue now.

Not sure what the new XTRAXN involves but it sounds like they might do more--possibly some bcg work

As for sloppy fit doesn't mean anything in ARs as it does in other guns, I have heard this a lot and I have a sloppy fitting ar that shoots alright. I've never tried the gapper or tension take down pins. Just saying that the quality, precision, tightness is very tangible here.

XTRAXN is some kind of treatment to the chamber. Look at your fired brass.

Tightness of the upper and lower...........doesn't do much except make your fingers sore from taking it down.

But they are machined, right? And they do say LaRue. And they are all machined to be tight. And I never said LaRue's are machiend by LaRue to fit tight. So in re-reading my post, I'm spot on. LaRue's are machined to be tight.

Never said it did, I said a few range trips. I'm assuming he is going to punch those pins in and out of a few times over the course of a few trips. The more they are punched the looser they become, I can tell you from personal experience.

OP, there is NO benefit to the upper/lower fit being rediculiously tight, you should be able to push the pin out by hand and flip the two seperate w/o tools.

And he'll be able to...just give it a range trip or two. :whistling:

:dunno:
