* Required Fields




Directly descended from the rifles developed by LWRCI™ to meet the requirements of the U.S. Army Individual Carbine program, the IC line is built for optimal performance. Designed with revolutionary new features, yet maintaining the basic M4/AR-15/ M16 architecture that has served our armed forces well for the past 40 years, the LWRCI™ IC line delivers best-in-class design, outstanding ergonomics and flawless functionality.

Clearly a Step Up—all IC rifles are built on the patented LWRCI™ short-stroke piston system and come with a fully-ambidextrous lower receiver. Dual controls for the bolt catch and realase, the magazine release, and the fire control selection ensure ultimate effectiveness for all shooters. Our ambi controls allow shooters to manipulate the IC effectively no matter how the rifle is held, making offhand maneuvers easy when accommodating for barriers or injury.

Our dual-control lower receiver with its dramatically improved functionality is compatible with all legacy AR-15 pattern upper receivers. The Monoforge™ upper receiver is machined with our own integrated rail base that is lighter and stronger than our former two-piece designs. The rail system is easily configurable with rail segments, and our optional full quad rail installation is quick and simple to swap out using the ten retaining screws. The IC monoforged upper receiver eliminates the standard barrel nut; the barrel is secured by a proprietary non-indexing torque ring which provides even, full circumferential pressure on the barrel extension for absolute optimal Ḁt and function.

Like all LWRCI™ rifles and carbines, the IC line is manufactured with barrels cold hammer forged in our factory. Each model in the IC family comes with our proprietary Spiral fluted barrels that are 20% lighter than non-fluted barrels of the same diameter, cool faster and consistent torque setting for greater accuracy. IC – Individual Carbine= Improved Carbine. The Individual Carbine impressively improved, showing that,  at times, evolution can be accelerated.
