Alexander Arms’ new gun/upper receiver assembly and proprietary 6.5mm .26 Grendel round are so new, DefRev simply doesn’t yet have much information on it, other than the fact that the weapon is AR-15/M16-based. We’re assuming, for the moment, that AR-15 owners can just drop a .26 Grendel upper receiver assembly right onto their standard AR-15/M16 or M4/M4A1 carbine lower, and go right to work.
The 6.5mm .26 Grendel round has an effective range of 1000-1400 yards, according the video we have from AFJ (Armed Forces Journal). No word yet on whether or not Alexander Arms will be…
manufacturing a complete select-fire version of the 6.5mm .26 Grendel.
Here is a link to the excellent and informative AFJ video that we’ve placed on DefRev’s server. We’ve done this so our members and readers can download the video more quickly and easily.
