Press Release: CMMG’s Newest ANVIL

Boonville, MO – CMMG has announced the release of its all-new MkW ANVIL XLR2 chambered in 6.5 Grendel. Featuring a 22-inch medium taper barrel, this new 6.5 Grendel is capable of delivering a knockout punch, even at longer distances out to 800 yards.  The rifle includes:

  • 22-inch barrel with 1:8 Twist for maximum long-range accuracy
  • Geissele Automatics SSA 2-stage Trigger
  • Fully Ambidextrous CMMG Charging Handle and Safety Selector
  • CMMG SV Muzzle Brake and RML15 MLOK Hand Guard
  • Magpul Moe Pistol Grip and PRS Stock

“The 6.5 Grendel is a great round. It has very minimal recoil. It is also flat shooting out to 500 yards and beyond. It’s great for hunting medium-sized game such as deer and pigs, and best of all, you can find ammo for it that is relatively inexpensive. In building the ANVIL XLR2 with a 22-inch barrel, along with some of our other finest components, we designed this rifle to help shooters achieve the best possible results with this caliber,” said Chris Reinkemeyer, CEO of CMMG.

CMMG’s MkW ANVIL is a mid-sized AR rifle platform that is uniquely engineered to easily handle calibers with large casing diameters and significantly high bolt thrust. The most defining feature of the ANVIL is CMMG’s unique POWERBOLT design, which allows the rifle to utilize a modified AR10-sized bolt for increased durability. This is important because large-diameter cartridges such as 6.5 Grendel would require material to be milled out of a standard AR15-sized bolt in order to function – resulting in a thin, fragile bolt face. The POWERBOLT design allows the ANVIL to take 6.5 Grendel, and many others, to their full potential.

The MkW ANVIL is built on an AR10-sized frame with the upper receiver shortened by three quarters of an inch to minimize weight and increase ergonomics. Although the frame is based on the AR10 platform, the magwell on the lower receiver has been uniquely designed to accept standard AR15 magazines. This allows the rifle to utilize the durable AR10-sized bolt with calibers such as 6.5 Grendel, which have a case diameter that is larger than a 5.56 NATO. The result is a mid-sized AR that delivers superior durability while minimizing weight.

Each MkW ANVIL in 6.5 Grendel ships with one 10-round magazine and is backed by CMMG’s Lifetime Quality Guarantee. For those who already own a CMMG MkW ANVIL in .458 SOCOM, CMMG will also offer 6.5 Grendel upper receiver groups that will be compatible with any MkW ANVIL lower.

The 6.5 Grendel caliber was developed by Arne Brennan, Bill Alexander, and Janne Pohjoispää and introduced in 2004 by Alexander Arms. The design of the 6.5 Grendel intended to create a cartridge capable of functioning in an AR15 platform while simultaneously providing superior long-range accuracy and energy upon impact.

Since its introduction, the 6.5 Grendel has proven to be an effective round for long-range shooting in both hunting and tactical situations. Bullet weights range from 90 grains all the way up to 130 grains, making it a diverse cartridge for a variety of applications.

Article: Shot Show 2018

Well, it is that time of year again, SHOT SHOW 2018. I am very excited, as I am every year, for the show. I wanted to talk a few minutes about the State of GearsofGuns as a whole and what 2018 might hold for us.

State of GearsofGuns in 2018

I first want to thank all of you who have been subscribing to the YouTube channel. We saw a 700%+ increase in 2017 over 2016 in new subscribers.

I have finally moved to a ranch where I have land to shoot on. This will enable me to bring more videos and content that I had previously had access to.

I am really excited to share that I will be doing more real world testing with firearms and gear in 2018. I have been given the ability to hunt hogs. So I will be able to test gear that might be more suited towards the hunting community. With that being said, I will not be changing the channel or website to include hunting. I will just be using the hunting to bring you more information about the firearms, gear and ammunition that we are using.

I am changing my internet provider so that I can release more content such as written articles. As it stands right now I am extremely limited to how much data I can use to do research and upload content. Anyone living on satellite internet knows the plight.

SHOT Show 2018

If you are unfamiliar with what SHOT Show is, here is a little info and stats.

SHOT Show stands for Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade Show. It is an industry only trade show so that media, buyers and the like have a chance to meet with other members of the industry to see new product.

Buyers may set up purchase orders for 2018 to sell in their stores and there are quite a few classes offered. As a member of the media we are invited to come out and get press content for 2018 as well as meet with the manufacturers who supply the products for our reviews.

The day before the show is called Industry Day at the Range (formerly known as Media Day at the Range). This is a range day where media and buyers alike are invited to test out select products.

The remaining 4 days we have in Las Vegas is dedicated to the trade show. This is where we get our videos and specs of the cool new stuff we are hoping to show you in 2018.
