SIG SAUER, a leading manufacturer of firearms, ammunition, and accessories, has announced the launch of its latest offering, the MCX-SPEAR. This new rifle is the civilian version of the U.S. Army’s XM7 rifle, which was recently chosen for the Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW) program. With this release, SIG SAUER is bringing enhanced AR-10 capabilities to the MCX platform for the first time on the commercial market.
The MCX-SPEAR is a highly adaptable, multi-caliber rifle that can fire 277 SIG Fury, 6.5 Creedmoor, and 7.62 NATO rounds. It features rear and side non-reciprocating charging handles, a 6-position folding Magpul SL-M stock, integrated stainless steel QD mounts on the lower receiver and handguard, fully ambidextrous fire controls, including safety, bolt-catch, and magazine release, a 2-stage Matchlite Duo trigger, a 2-position adjustable gas valve, a lightened free-float M-LOK™ handguard with a full-length picatinny rail, and a user-interchangeable barrel for easy caliber conversion. The MCX-SPEAR also ships with a 20-round magazine.
“The SIG SAUER-MCX family of rifles has become synonymous with innovative engineering and premium quality in a reliable and proven carbine,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, Commercial Sales. “The next generation has arrived with the new MCX-SPEAR, offering enhanced AR-10 capabilities in the MCX platform for the first time on the commercial market.”
The MCX-SPEAR’s adaptability makes it an excellent choice for hunters, competitive shooters, and tactical professionals. With its interchangeable barrel, users can easily switch between calibers, allowing them to customize the rifle to their specific needs. Its ambidextrous fire controls and non-reciprocating charging handles make it user-friendly for both right and left-handed shooters. Additionally, its lightweight design and folding stock make it easy to carry and store.
The XM7 rifle, on which the MCX-SPEAR is based, was chosen by the U.S. Army for the Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW) program, which aims to replace the Army’s aging M4 carbine and M249 squad automatic weapon. The XM7 was chosen for its improved accuracy and reliability, contributing to its selection in the Next Generation Squad Weapons (NGSW) program by the U.S. Army. With the MCX-SPEAR, civilians now have access to the same cutting-edge technology and superior performance as the U.S. Army’s newest rifle.
In conclusion, the MCX-SPEAR is an adaptable, multi-caliber rifle that offers enhanced AR-10 capabilities in the MCX platform for the first time on the commercial market. With its superior performance, adaptability, and user-friendly features, it is an excellent choice for hunters, competitive shooters, and tactical professionals. The MCX-SPEAR is now available in 7.62 NATO and 6.5 Creedmoor, with the 277 SIG Fury coming soon.
