Every gun has a purpose; some are “rulers of the interior” and removed from the safe just a few times a year, staying mostly cherished behind lock and key. Others are built for life at the range—firing thousands upon thousands of rounds into paper targets. Those same guns are the guns one grabs to defend the homestead, provide meat for the table or ward off nuisance critters. Kaiser U.S. Shooting Products is building one such gun, the X-7 Monarch. Based on matched set of enhanced polymer receivers, the company tested its design with more than 50,000 rounds of 5.56x45 mm NATO ammunition, all without mechanical failure. The polymer is engineered for strength and durability—metal is added where needed. The gun is tricked out with everything one can image to save weight. The buttstock and grip are provided by Mission First Tactical and the 16” barrel is from Faxon. Kaiser provides the titanium bolt carrier group and additional parts to complete the gun. At 4.12 lbs, the X-7 Monarch is quite a treat to tote, and its lighter weight allows for the addition of an optic and accessories.
