posted on December 10, 2016

LWRC International has paved a remarkable road through the semi-automatic rifle market, and this rifle will cause pig hunters to squeal with delight. The SIX8 Razorback, chambered for 6.8 mm SPC, boasts forged and machined receivers, gas piston-operation and the company’s proprietary two-piece handguard and Skirmish backup sights. Use of a 16.1” chrome-moly steel barrel with five-groove 1:10” RH twist rifling allows for accurate shooting. This rifle, which is finished with burnt bronze Cerakote, is a distributor exclusive offered in limited numbers that includes 500 rounds of Federal 90-gr. 6.8 SPC II ammunition.
