This is what happens when you combine a precision JP Arms LRP-07 .308 rifle with a Magpull stock, custom grip and top it with a Schmidt and Bender Police Marksman 2 rifle scope (5-25x56 PM II/LP)
JP Rifles are not designed for heavy combat. They're about as far away from an AK-47 as you can get (in the "gas gun" category) and still have a rifle in that class.
They are designed to be a precision rifle and when handled by a good shooter, they represent a quality tool that will print minute-of-angle at 300 meters. Precision shooting isn't only about the rifle and sighting system. It involves understanding bullet flight, accepting the conditions involved and requires precision ammunition to be effective. Practice ammunition should be of the same quality as 'war shots', which mean that shooting is never inexpensive.
One key advantage to the LRP-07 is the heat sink (left) that surrounds the barrel. It means that a cold barrel shot will go through the same hole in the target as a hot barrel shot.
I've had my LRP-07 for about five years now, and I've punched a few rounds through it. I use Barrett scope mounts to lift the scope higher than other standard mounts because the Schmidt and Bender needs it to keep the clearance between the scope tube and the barrel where it needs to be.
The price of these components has gone up since I bought them. But I don't buy firearms to invest for the purpose of reselling. I buy them to shoot.
From the website:
The LRP-07™ was designed as a .308 platform to cure the shortcomings of existing rifles and still handle like an AR-15. Machined from billet with all the attention to cosmetic perfection that appears in our CTR/SCR design, this rifle utilizes a self-folding, left-side charging handle that affords additional leverage and makes it unnecessary to dismount the rifle to charge or clear it. The felt recoil impulse on the LRP-07™ is also nothing short of amazing as it was designed from the magazine well up to use our Low Mass Operating System (LMOS™). Equipped with the MK III Hand Guard System, the LRP utilizes our standard 2" diameter tube (rather than the larger tubes common to .308 platforms) surrounding a JP Supermatch™ barrel available in lengths from 16" to 22". Once in your hands, you will find the LRP-07™ to be the best rifle in its classójust what youíve come to expect from JP.
