In the upcoming January 2014 issue of Tactical Weapons, author Robert Jordan writes, “This year the DEA approved LWRCI’s updated M6A2, the M6 Individual Carbine (IC). The new rifle is cryptically referred to as the ‘1811 Package’ on the company’s website, and 1811 is a reference to the government classification of General Service 1811 employees. They are classified as criminal investigators, but are better known as ‘special agents.’ They have been called ‘feds,’ ‘G-Men,’ and ‘five-O,’ but make no mistake, they are the backbone of federal law enforcement. And they insist on carrying the best available firepower.”

The M6 IC included in the 1811 Package has several performance-enhancing features, including a spiral-fluted barrel, a short-stroke piston system, ambidextrous controls—including the mag release, bolt catch, safety and charging handle—a modular forend and a collapsible stock. LWRCI also pours its tight quality control standards into its production—and the results are evident. But how did it fare on the range?
