Lancer L30 Rifle

Lancer L30

Lancer Advanced Weapons and Components introduced their L30 Series Rifle at the SHOT Show Media Day at the Range.  The L30 is designed to be a larger caliber, precision semi-auto rifle.  The L30 will accept the new L7 Advanced Warfighter Magazines, but will accept other SR25/DPMS style magazines as well.

The foundation of the Lancer L30 is the patented lower receiver design that incorporates an oversized magazine release button, ambidextrous bolt release lever, and a removable magwell extension.  It is the later that really displays the ingenuity of the Lancer engineers, and is a patented advancement to the AR design.  The magwell extensions are precision machined from billet aluminum, with features that will match the lower receiver.  The extensions are made to tolerances that eliminate the potential for rattling when the rifle is fired.

Lancer L7 Advanced Warfighter Magazine

Lancer L7 mag

Lancer displayed their new L7 Advanced Warfighter Magazine (AWM) at the 2014 SHOT Show.  The magazine is specifically designed as an upgraded magazine for semi-auto .308 caliber (7.62x51mm) rifles.  The L7 AWM continues Lancer’s famous translucent options in polymer magazines.

Lancer believed that most .308 caliber polymer magazines were not strong enough to sustain repeated firing of the more powerful .30 caliber cartridges.  To answer this concern, Lancer combined the lightweight benefit of polymer, with the hardness and durability of steel like their L5 AWM.
