RP Entry Level Carbine (ELC)

$1,379.00$1,554.00

By “Entry Level”, by NO means do we mean “Budget”. This carbine was brought into existence after careful market trend analysis and soul searching. Obviously, the Ranger Proof Carbine (RPC) is the flagship, top shelf rifle. However, there is a vast pool of people out there who do not have the means to get into the RPC right now. So, we decided to offer a very high quality rifle, based on a forged upper and lower receiver that fits in the price point that is accessible to the majority of our supporters. We will also offer an “upgrade” package that can be purchased at a later date, to upgrade the MILSPEC components to bring the ELC in line spec-wise with the RPC.

Description

By “Entry Level”, by NO means do we mean “Budget”. This carbine was brought into existence after careful market trend analysis and soul searching.  Obviously, the Ranger Proof Carbine (RPC) is the flagship, top shelf rifle. However, there is a vast pool of people out there who do not have the means to get into the RPC. So, we decided to offer a very high quality rifle, based on a forged upper and lower receiver that fits in the price point that is accessible to the majority of our supporters. We will also offer an “upgrade” package that can be purchased at a later date, to upgrade the MILSPEC components to bring the ELC in line spec-wise with the RPC.

So, here is a breakdown of the ELC and what you get for the money…

We start with the barrel. This is the heart of the rifle. It will be available in the standard 16” 1:8 twist, mid length gas system, 5.56 chamber, or you can choose to spec a 14.5” barrel… with a pinned / welded muzzle device. This is a 4150 Chrome Moly Steel Barrel, Button Rifled and ISONITE QPQ Coated. we have demonstrated how reliable these barrels are, so you can rest assured that you are getting quality. The Muzzle Device is the PWS FSC556, standard.

Next is the bolt carrier group. This is a standard cut, M16 style “Full Auto” (heavy) carrier, with the same manufacturing specs as the top of the line Ranger Proof Enhanced Bolt Carrier. This ELC carrier is Black Nitride coated (ISONITE QPQ) and features the exact same bolt as the RPC BCG. The only difference is the profile. It is a standard “MILSPEC” pattern BCG.

The ELC will also have the same free floating Key Mod rail that the RPC uses, only the ELC will have a 12.5” rail instead of the 15.5” rail that the RPC has. This cuts down a few grams, and also keeps the price point in line with our vision of the ELC, and offers the same high quality that is demanded of the RPC.

The Upper and Lower Receiver are 7075 T6 forged units, held to exacting tolerances and finished out, hand inspected and blended, which will provide a flawless assembly. The lowers are marked Ranger Proof Arms, and carry the serial number ELC-xxxxx for marking variance. The Ranger Proof logo is engraved on the right side of the mag well. The lower will feature an oversized billet trigger guard, instead of the standard straight MILSPEC trigger guard.

All upper / lower components for the base ELC are MILSPEC. You will get a standard safety selector, standard MILSPEC Take Down and Pivot Pins, but, you will get the most EXCELLENT CMC 3.5 pound flat bow trigger. Ranger Proof written extensively on why we like this trigger, and why we prefer the flat bow. Once you shoot with it, you will understand.

The buffer tube is a six position MILPSEC buffer tube, with castle nut.  We also spec a QD end plate, and the rear selector detent / spring are held in place by a 4-40 set screw. This allows for easy upgrade to the PWS Enhanced Buffer Tube later, if you purchase the Upgrade Kit.

The pistol grip and stock are the same as the RPC… We use the B5 Systems SOPMOD Bravo stock, and the Ergo pistol grip, giving some cross platform continuity.

The ELC ships “optics ready.”  You can add your choice of the numerous polymer style BUIS systems, fixed BUIS or the RDS or optic of your choice.

For the price you are getting one heck of a rifle. Each rifle is assembled by the same folks and with the same care that goes into the RPC, and is 100% guaranteed. This is our way of making Ranger Proof Quality, accessible to everyone.

Thank you for your support!!
