SHOT Show 2014 hopeful: the Sig Sauer MCX SBR

| January 8, 2014 | 0 Comments

I recently wrote about the Honey Badger, a prototype AR project chambered in .300 Blackout and sporting a 6″ barrel. I’m using it as the basis of my briefcase AR project. After two years, nothing really happened with the Honey Badger, and in doing some research on alternatives I came across Sig Sauer’s MCX, which is a factory-made SBR.

It comes in 5.56, 7.62×39 and .300 Blackout.

David Crane over at Defense Review wrote about the MCX last May.

Check it out:

I hope to see it in person at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas and ask some questions, particularly about the gas dwell time. I am concerned that the Honey Badger and the MCX appear to have non-standard elements like buffer tubes, gas systems, and piston / operating rods. I hope they chose these for reasons other than reliability. For example, the MCX has a collapsing stock that would be impossible on a standard AR with a buffer tube.

I know other people are running .300BLK AR-15s with 6″ barrels, but I’d rather keep the hassle to a minimum.
