Just got off the phone with Melvin Forbes at New Ultra Light Arms. He said he just finished my rifle in .30 Rem AR. With a 20 inch barrel it weighs 4.4 pounds (4 pounds and 6.4 ounces). With a lightweight Leupold or my 8 ounce 6X Weaver total weight should be around 5 pounds. I expect I’ll see about 135 fps increase over the AR which should run 150 gr. bullets to about 2700 fps and 110 gr. bullets to 3100+. Melvin said the rifle will hold three in the magazine and one in the chamber. A feature article on this rifle is scheduled for Rifle Magazine but I’ll keep you posted here when the rifle arrives.
