NRA Gun of the Week: Alexander Arms Incursion Rifle

posted on January 28, 2017

Bill Alexander is a man who loves engineering and guns. His Incursion rifle, a thoughtful rendition of the AR-15, is chambered in a cartridge credited to Bill and Alexander Arms—the 6.5 Grendel. Combining a mid-range cartridge and a lighter weight gun that launches good bullets, you’ve got a perfect recipe for capability. Alexander Arms offers a la carte-style customizing of its rifles, so enhancing a factory rifle is as simple as the click of a button. The Incursion is as at home in deer camp as it as part of your bug-out gear, or as a quasi-scout rifle.
