There is a review on this rifle in this month's Tactical Weapons Magazine.

I can't believe this is the only pic I can find online! I'll keep searching, but this color looks awesome with black. Its kinda like FDE, but darker:

Almost like a copper color?

Just wondering if Drew could paint a rifle in this color, or if Duracoat offers it?

Looks OD green. If you plan on getting one hurry up and order now and you might be able to get yours before next year

I blew it up a little for you...

Looks OD Green to me...I think the coloring looks off because of the residual yellowness of the background scenery.

Pardon the geek out moment, but it reminds me of this old color they used on the "pulse rifles" for the movie Aliens, 'brown bess' and it was kind of a cross between OD and Dark Earth.

Coyote Brown. It's the latest for being really tactically cool. All the real ninjas use Coyote Brown.

I guess LWRC and Vltor are "ninjas"?

The IAR is a military only rifle. Supposed to be pretty good too and the Marines are testing it to possibly replace the M249 SAW.

The M6A3 civilian rifle uses the same mid-length gas system but is obviously semi-auto only and does not fire from an open bolt. These rifles *might* be available by the end of the year for order, plus the usual ___ month wait for an LWRC.
