This weeks build is a slight departure from what we normally feature. Nearly all the firearms we have shown on these emails are various personal builds from employees here at Rainier Arms. The rifle we are showcasing today was built specifically for one of our local police departments here in Western Washington. The philosophy behind the build of this rifle was something to replace the department’s bolt guns for longer range shooting that also allowed SWAT sniper teams to participate in close quarters engagements if needed.
This week’s build is a bit different than ones we have shown off before. For a number of years Rainier Arms has been involved with the international sales of firearms and accessories to numerous countries around the globe. This rifle in particular was assembled for an international show, therefore the parts chosen were used to showcase some of the best products Rainier has to offer.
Magpul continues to pump out brand new products. Last night they introduced two new products that look pretty awesome. First up is the new M-LOK Rail Covers Type-1. These rail covers install into M-LOK slots without any adapters or screws. Just snap in. The material is a very heat resistant and offers added grip surface on the rail. Each cover is 9.5″ in length and can cover 6 M-LOK slots and can be cut for different configurations. These come in a 2-pack for $16 at www.Magpul.com
