Finally....my SBR

I started the process of purchasing my first NFA item about 6 months ago. I purchased my LWRC PSD in 6.8 SPC. Then the wait started. I waited right at 5 months for my tax stamp. It was well worth the wait. It is a blast to shoot. Anyway, here are some pics.

SBR is next on my list along with, SBS, AOW another suppressor and maybe even a full auto......I need a shorter list.

Nice 6.8 but where is the pic of the tax stamp with the purpose listed as "cause chicks dig it"?

Sweet SBR. I was thinking about doing that to my M&P, but only a 10in. Will you pm me all info that you have on the process?

Completely out of curiosity..

Why would you go with the expensive 6.8 round in a SBR? ( around 1$ a round )

The 6.8 is affective at long range, but that short barrel I would think would reduce the range.

I totally want your gun, and I can understand wanting a larger round for knock down. However If I were to buy a 6.8, I would go with a 20' barrel for that 800 yard range.

Good basic info at that link.



But nice gun man, let us know how it shoots. Also, who did the NFA engraving?

The 6.8 was never intended to be a long range cartridge. It was developed to provide better terminal ballistics than the 5.56. It really shines in SBR format vs 5.56. It was designed for CQB and if needed take out personnel at intermediate range (<500).

The thought behind the 6.8 is to use it in a light weight, compact weapon. If you are willing to go to a 20" barrel and take 800 yard shots the .308 is much better suited. In fact I would go with a .260 Rem or 6.5x47 Lapua.

Hrmm. Learned something new today, thanks.

Congrats on your purchase.

It is a factory SBR, no additional engraving needed.
