LWRC International is known for our patented, self-regulating, short-stroke-gas-piston operating system. This system eliminates the venting of hot, carbon-laden gases into the upper receiver and bolt carrier groups, which does away with the intensive cleaning regimen associated with conventional direct-impingement rifles. With our piston system, the bolt carrier group and receiver groups are also not subjected to the searing heat of the trapped gases, which translates into carbines that more reliable and longer lasting, regardless of user maintenance.
