Sig Sauer has recently released the MCX-SPEAR-LT series, featuring eight models of rifle and pistol in three different calibers.
Sig Sauer is continuing to develop its MCX line of AR-derived firearms, now releasing the third generation dubbed the MCX-SPEAR-LT series. This newest iteration features eight models in three distinct calibers, being sold in rifle, pistol and factory SBR configurations dependent on barrel length.
The biggest addition to the MCX-SPEAR-LT line is the inclusion of 7.62×39 models, bringing the total number of caliber options up to three alongside 5.56 NATO and .300 BLK. The .300 BLK version is available with a 9-inch barrel only, but can be bought as either a pistol or factory SBR (the latter requires a Form 4 to transfer). The 11.5-inch barrel models are available in either 5.56 NATO or 7.62×39 and can be had as either pistols or factory SBRs, and the same two calibers are also available as rifles with 16-inch barrels.
Besides the different chamberings, barrel lengths and legal statuses, all MCX-SPEAR-LT models are fundamentally the same. They feature aluminum frames, ambidextrous controls, flat Sig match triggers and Sig quick-detach suppressor-ready flash hiders. Also, thanks to the gas piston operating system, there’s no need for a buffer tube. This allows the rifle and factory SBR models to ship with folding stocks, and the pistol models are capable of accepting folding braces or stocks as well. All models also feature an Anodized Coyote finish.
Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales at Sig Sauer, said this about the MCX-SPEAR-LT series:
The first generation of the MCX platform was designed to be an AR-15 style platform with added modularity. The second generation of the MCX, the MCX Virtus, was purpose-built for rugged durability and brought unprecedented modularity. Now comes the MCX-SPEAR-LT, which incorporates the best of both generations and is the culmination of the latest research, development, and innovation in the MCX platform…
Sig Sauer has not listed individual MSRPs for the different models, but they are starting to become available at dealers now.
