Fightlite Industries SCR: The AR Rifle With A Traditional Stock
Fightlite’s unusual AR-style lower receiver doesn’t carry a pistol grip or even has an attachment point for one, giving the carbine an unusual profile bordering on tradition without sacrificing the durability and performance of the modern sporting rifle. In 2020, the company added the warmth of wood to its line of products, a version that * got to test drive.
The company’s Sport Configurable Rifle (SCR) range was first introduced in 2014, and each has a MIL-STD 1913 flat-top top receiver for quick and effortless optics assembly. Although the original design featured synthetic shafts that looked similar to the Remington 870, each of the 16 different versions available today is made using real wood.
Made and designed in the USA, Fightlite SCRs accept most AR-15 parts, including magazines, barrels, top receivers, and more. The design allows owners to change chambers by pushing two captive pins to swap out the top receiver.
MSRPs start at $ 1,170 for a carabiner with a walnut shaft and handguard, or you can choose from wood laminates in nutmeg, pepper, and forest camouflage for the same price. Regardless of your selection, all SCRs are chambered in 5.56 NATO and the barrel length is 16.25 “with a twist rate of 1: 9”.
The top models are equipped with a free-floating MLOK Fightlite handguard. The MSRP for everyone in this quartet – available in the furniture above – is $ 1,280. The barrels in this version have a thread for muzzle devices.
The guns weigh between 5.8 and 6.2 lbs. and come with five round capacity magazines, making them a good option for anyone living in more restrictive areas of the country. The receivers are made of 7075-T6 aluminum in aerospace quality and have a black hard anodization in accordance with MIL-A-8625 F. Barrels are 4140 Chromoly and have a manganese phosphate finish.
