CMMG Introduces the Mk3 CBR (Carbine Battle Rifle)

CMMG_Mk3_CBRHog hunting, 3 gun competition or defending the homestead, this new carbine from CMMG is sure to fit the bill. The Mk3 CBR (Carbine Battle Rifle) is chambered in .308 WIN/7.62x51mm NATO and is precision-built to deliver the relentless functionality that CMMG rifles are known for. The Mk3 CBR is an ideal rifle for long-range shooting or close-quarters action and because it’s built with CMMG’s premium manufacturing requirements, it gives shooters the chance to own a high-end AR rifle at a practical price. The Mk3 CBR features the free float RKM15 KeyMod hand guard that measures 15 inches in length to accommodate a wide range of hand positions and allows users to attach an assortment of different accessories. The KeyMod slots are located at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions with a 1913 Picatinny rail on top to give the hand guard an array of mounting options. The KeyMod system is the new industry standard for mounting accessories. It is a simple, comfortable and lightweight solution that offers users a low profile mounting alternative to the M1913 Picatinny rail. The KeyMod system presents a new level of customization, as it allows the direct attachment of compatible accessories without the use of intermediate M1913 Picatinny rails. For accessories that are not yet KeyMod compatible, users can purchase a separate CMMG 5-slot Picatinny adapter rail that can be easily attached to any of the KeyMod slots for optimal placement of the accessories. The Mk3 CBR rifle is constructed with a hard anodized, billet 6061-T6 aluminum receiver.  A 416 stainless barrel was selected and features a nitride finish that provides the barrel with long lasting accuracy and corrosion resistance. CMMG’s medium taper (MT) barrel is the perfect balance between weight and rigidity. The rifle also includes a CMMG SV muzzle brake, designed to reduce recoil and increase muzzle control for quick and manageable follow-up shots. By partnering with other industry leaders, the Mk3 CBR has some of the best components available to complete the rifle. Some of these parts include a Geissele Automatics SSA 2-stage trigger, a Magpul ACS-L™ collapsible butt stock and Magpul MOE pistol grip. The rifle also comes with a Magpul 20 LR PMAG with a 20 round capacity. The combination of all of these features creates one of the most capable and affordable .308 WIN rifles available.

Now hunters and shooters have a new platform for the popular and versatile .308 Win./7.62 NATO cartridge! Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has just announced the new Ruger SR-762, bringing the .308 Win./7.62 NATO cartridge to the popular SR-556 family of rifles. The SR-762 offers the downrange authority of the .308 in a two-stage, piston-driven rifle that runs cooler and cleaner than traditional gas-driven AR-style rifles.

The SR-762 is an ideal rifle for those who appreciate the familiar and ergonomic AR-style platform. The .308 Win./7.62 NATO cartridge is perfect for hunting medium and most large-sized game and enhances the capability of the AR-style platform in defensive or tactical roles.

The SR-762 retains the features of the original SR-556 that make it a solid performer among AR-style rifles. The patent-pending, two-stage piston delivers a smooth power stroke to the one-piece bolt carrier, which reduces felt recoil and improves the rifle’s durability. The four-position gas regulator allows the shooter to tune the rifle to function reliably with a broad variety of ammunition and in varying environmental conditions.

Three 20-round MAGPUL PMAG magazines are provided with the SR-762. Folding backup iron sights, a Hogue Monogrip, Picatinny rail sections and rail covers add considerable value to the package, as does the six-position stock, sight adjustment tool, and a soft-sided carry case.

The Ruger SR-762 has an MSRP of $2,195.
