Often people who don't need a serious AR are upset seeing their choice coming up short on the chart but don't realize the Chart really isn't for them, it's to help the person who wants a better M4 and is willing to pay for it. A lot of the anger is from both sides when the question comes up "which AR should I buy..."
I've reached the point where when someone asks that, it's like someone asking what flavor pizza to get.

I like that.....asking what kind of AR to get is like asking what kind of pizza you want......

Thin well done crust, with anchovies, olives and garlic.... mmmmm

You lost me at anchovies. The rest? Oh yeah. Don't forget the pineapple chunks and ham.

Q mentioned 8/2009. LWRC is a reputable company. Love the REPR. Build quatlity is pretty nice from what I hear. But I've heard less than stellar things about there CS tho.

Actually, it wouldn't fit in anywhere on this chart since you don't have a true M4. This is a comparison of M4 type ARs, which means no piston.

You can try to force it if LWRC is forthcoming with their specs. Add up the Xs and see where it falls. I'd swag it in at high Tier 2 but that's all it is, a swag. You'd likely place it higher. Concentrate on their specs for the bolt and barrel, that's the meat and potatoes.

Anyway, don't get stressed out about this, you already have first hand experience with your rifle, just run a lot of ammo and see how it does.

Well if my M4 was a tier 1 then this thing is off the scale. But I will do a X add up and see where it falls but hey I appreciate the info.

Remember, too, the chart isn't a 'always 100% dead on' rule. Just as every company tosses a lemon out there once in a while, every company tosses a gem out once in a while, too.
It's a general, overall view, not a 100%, written in stone, every single f*$%king time one goes out the door fact.
Nice set up, by the way.
