Directly descended from the rifles developed by LWRC to meet the requirements for the U.S. Army Individual Carbine program, the IC-A5 is built for high performance. The IC-A5 is the latest model in the IC – Individual Carbine series. Customers called for an adjustable gas block and the longer 12” SPR style rail system on the same rifle. LWRC listened- the IC-A5 is designed with a low profile 2 position adjustable gas block allowing the shooter to compensate for running a suppressor with the added benefit of a longer modular rail system. The upper rail section on the IC-A5 is an aesthetically pleasing special cutback version which allows the use of the low profile gas block and at the same time keep the full 12” modular rails available on the sides and bottom of the hand guards. This IC-A5 brings together features of both the IC Enhanced and the IC-SPR in one package.
Like all IC models the IC-A5 is constructed using the highest quality materials, built on the patented self-regulating short-stroke gas piston system, machined from materials that belong to the super alloy family of steel alloys most often used in aerospace, LWRCI raises the bar on reliability and ease of maintenance- delivering the highest level of performance. The gas-piston system can be accessed quickly by loosening two thumb screws.
Dual Control fully ambidextrous lower receiver includes bolt catch and release, magazine release and fire control access from both sides of the IC-A5. LWRC Enhanced Fire Control Group comes standard. The investment castings are x-rayed for imperfections and nickel-boron coated for a smooth crisp trigger pull with positive reset. The IC-A5 uses WRCI manufactured- NiCorr treated cold Hammer Forged spiral fluted barrel that are 20% lighter than unfluted barrels of the same diameter. The increased surface area reduces heat – speeds up cooling. Nickel-boron coated bolt carrier delivers unparalleled wear resistance, corrosion resistance and permanent lubricity.
