    Lightbulb Introducing The Spectre Ballistics Light Practical Carbine - NR Receiver Set

    Good Morning CGN,

    The future of firearm ownership in Canada is in jeopardy with the results of the election. In preparation for this outcome we have developed a new receiver set that uses common AR-15 components to build a bolt action rifle. While it is regrettable that this design might be necessary in the future months we are very proud of this design.

    Introducing the Spectre Ballistics International Light Practical Carbine. The Spectre L.P.C for short.

    The Spectre Ballistics Light Practical Carbine is a modern, customizable bolt action hunting rifle designed to fire intermediate cartridges. The L.P.C uses commonly available barrels, triggers, bolts, stocks, grips, hand guards, and magazines to be a truly customizable firearm. Ideal for hunters, target shooters, farmers, and collectors.


    This receiver set will be prototyped immediately and be brought to market Q2 2020.


    ---> More Info <---

    Specifications:
    • Material: 6061-T6 Aluminium
    • Finish: Hard Black Anodized or Cerakote.
    • Caliber: Intermediate calibers
    • Classification: Non-Restricted (FRT Pending)
    • Action Type: Bolt Action


    The purpose of this receiver set is to replace your AR-15 receiver set in the event of a ban.
    At least we can hopefully keep a bolt action rifle. AR-15 parts used for the Spectre L.P.C:
    • Barrel
    • Bolt (not the carrier)
    • Buffer tube
    • Stock
    • Handguard & Barrel nut
    • Trigger
    • Grip
    • Magazines




    Nov 25 Update:
    Good morning CGN,

    It's been awhile since we've had any visual progress to report, however don't worry we've been making great progress on the LPC. Over the weekend we managed to complete the first prototype upper, and assemble the first rifle. We will be making some minor changes to the upper in the next iteration to remove some sharp edges.

    With a 20" pencil barrel, light weight 10" m-lok handguard, and a magpul stock, the rifle weights under 5lbs loaded. 5.1 lbs with the optic pictured. We are now working on the bolt body which we hope to have completed shortly.

    We will have the rifle at the Edmonton gun show this weekend.

    TBD. But we've done our best to simplify the design to keep costs down.

    As sad as is this makes me, I'd probably jump on board. A .300 blk would be cool for a short range deer gun. Straight pull bolt? How quick will these be to cycle?
    Insert clever signature here...

    Yes, it's a straight pull. It cycles as fast as you move your arm.

    Would you just have to solder gas port holes on your barrel to use existing barrels?

    Install your low profile gas block backwards. If you have an A-frame gas block you will need to plug it. No modifications to the barrel should be required. We will provide instructions.

    Didn't they do something similar to this in Australia? But because it still used the bolt release they seemed it semi auto and we're stealing them back from the people who owned them

    This gun does not have a last round hold open or bolt release.

    Australia will ban stuff that looks "tactical".
