For those that want to shoot 7.62 in a black gun, LaRue Tactical introduced its PredatAR (kinda cheesy name) which is a slimmed-down version of their OBR (Optimized Battle Rifle). Available in 7.62 and 5.56. They basically shaved two pounds off each OBR version by thinning out the barrel, changing the forearm, etc. 7.62 weighs in at 8 pounds and 5.56 at 6 pounds (sans BUIS and anything else). 0 MOA on rails.

The plan was to satisfy folks that were willing to give up some long-range performance in exchange for a lighter gun for hunting and match shooting. Personally, I prefer the original OBR, at least in 7.62.

I'm seriously jealous. I guess I need to make the next LaRue range day if I want to handle one. Or get out the credit card. I think I'd rather have the original OBR in 7.62. Still debating myself on the 5.56. One way or another, LaRue is gonna get some more of my money before it's over.
