The scope’s objective lens displayed the same propensity as the A2-style flash hider for collecting snow and ice. LaRue uses and unusual gas system on the 7.62 OBR, and it didn’t sputter even in 19-degree weather.
Barrels are constructed of LW-50 stainless steel (a good thing during this test) and the Picatinny rail has plenty of room for high-performance optics and a built-in cant for use with in-line night vision.
The gun’s overall length is 37.5 inches and it accepts standard M110 magazines, although once you give the pair of LaRue Tactical .308 Win. magazines a try we doubt you’ll be running an aftermarket version very much.
Prior to shipping, every OBR is tested at LaRue Tactical and nothing goes out the door without producing 1 MOA or less groups. I guess we could have wrung the gun out at the range, but then we would have never witnessed the firearm’s reliability.
