War Sport Industries LLC will have a new rifle out in the next couple of months and to say it has great potential is to damn it with faint praise. As you may have read in the past, War Sport has carved a niche out for itself in the ‘low visibility’ world, specifically lowering such things as an operator’s thermal signature and mitigating the operator’s overall footprint (such as with the Suppressor Sock and the War Bungee, among other things). The LVOA (Low Visibility Operations Application) SBR will be the first weapon platform that conforms to War Sport’s vision of LVOA.
They will be releasing two versions of the War Sport LVOA SBR, one with a 12″ barrel, the other a 14.5″ with a BattleComp 1.5 pin-welded comp so owning it does not become an NFA issue. Unfortunately, due to ongoing patent and trademark efforts I can’t tell you a whole lot about it – yet. I can whet your appetite, however, with some basics. It will be chambered in 5.56mm, will feature a CMC single stage flat trigger with unique barrel contours and a new rail design with features unlike anything else out there in the industry. The body will be full billet and the rifle will be manufactured to War Sport Industry’s design specs by GPI Custom Gunworks.
I really think this is going to create waves in an industry that’s hard to stir up. The first production runs will be done in late September for a final round of thorough testing before they pull the trigger on a full production run. It should be available for purchase by early November.
Keep an eye on War Sport over the next couple of months, this is going to be big.
