Back in April (2004), DefenseReview published a short article about the Monolithic Rail Platform (MRP) and QuickChange Barrel System (QCBS) for AR-15/M16-based rifles (including the SOPMOD M4A1Carbine/CQB Subcarbine), made by Lewis Machine & Tool Co. (LMT). Gary Paul Johnston has just written an excellent piece on the LMT MRP/QCBS for the September 2004 issue of "Soldier of Fortune" (SOF) Magazine. DefRev recommends you pick up the issue and read it.
The Lewis Machine and Tool (LMT) Monolithic Rail Platform (MRP)/Quick-Change Barrel System (QCBS) is innovative and unique, and therefore worth learning about for anyone who owns, or would like to own, an AR-15/M16-based rifle/carbine. If you’d like to learn more about the LMT MRP, contact Lewis Machine & Tool Co. (LMT) at 309 787-7151
DefenseReview’s original article on the LMT MRP/CQBS is…
titled "Monolithic Rail Platform and Quick-Change Barrel System for the M4/M4A1 Carbine". The article contains links to pics of the LMT MRP/QCBS that we took at SWAT Round-Up 2003.
