6.5 Grendel Rifle Kit
Long-range 6.5 Grendel AR kits for maximizing your accuracy.
Who says the 5.56/.223 platform AR-15 can't reach out past 500 yards? What about 800 yards or more? That's exactly what a 6.5 Grendel Rifle Kit can provide you. These kits utilize almost entirely 5.56/.223 components - including upper and lower receivers, parts kits, handguards, buffer and tubes, the works - while swapping the usual barrel for a Grendel setup and a high-pressure bolt capable of handling the Grendel's extra powder burn.
Match Barrels for Hyper Accuracy
All barrels in these 6.5 Grendel kits are precision-forged from mil-spec 4150 CMV or 416R Crucible stainless, providing hardened and polished rifling lands and grooves that guarantee the most accuracy possible. Barrels sport a 1:8 twist rate, which provides the most gyroscopic stability for 6.5 Grendel's heaviest and most accurate loads.

Pair with an AR-15 Lower or 80% Lower!
Since Grendel loads utilize standard 5.56/.223 components, that means you get to use a regular AR-15 stripped lower receiver or 80% lower. Grendel requires specific magazines, but the exterior of the magazine body first perfectly in the standard AR-15 lower, with no modifications required for the mag catch or release button.
