While we’re on the subject of camouflage coatings/paint we thought we would share the following digital photos with our readers. They’re pics of the (5.56x45mm/.223 Rem) Lewis Machine & Tool Monolithic Rail Platform/Quick-Change Barrel System Close Quarters Battle subcarbine (or, LMT MRP/QCBS CQB subcarbine) coated/finished with Crye Associates/Crye Precision MultiCam Multi-Environment Camouflage firearms finish/coating. DefenseReview took them at SHOT Show 2005.
The weapon in the pics is equipped/outfitted with an EOTech 551.A65/1 HOLOgraphic Weapons Sight (HWS)/HOLOgraphic Diffraction Sight (HDS), Lewis Machine & Tool (LMT) SOPMOD Buttstock (telescoping/retractable), and what appears to be a TangoDown Vertical BattleGrip (vertical foregrip). DefRev actually prefers the EOTech 552.A65/1 HWS/HDS, which accepts AA lithium, alkaline, or rechargeable batteries and has a longer battery life (1100 hours) than the previously-mentioned 551 model, which takes N alkaline batteries (200 hours).
Here they are:…
