Savage Updates MSR 15 Recon with Longer LRP Series Rifles
Offered in .224 Valkyrie, .22 Nosler, and 6.8 SPC, Savage‘s new MSR 15 Recon LRP rifles are designed to stretch the platform’s performance envelope.
All Recon LRP models feature a Melonite QPQ 18-inch barrel with 5R rifling and a 1-in-7-inch RH twist inside a free-float M-LOK handguard. This is longer than the 16.1-inch barrels on the .223 Wylde-chambered legacy Recon.
Further, the .22 Nosler and .224 Valkyrie models of the new LRP also have an adjustable gas block that can be user-customized to specific ammunition loads.
When it comes to specs, the Recon LRP have an overall length of between 35.25- to 38.5-inches by means of their adjustable Magpul buttstock. Each come standard with a tunable muzzle brake. Weight is 7.5-pounds with a 25-round detachable magazine.
MSRP on the MSR 15 Recon LRP is set at $1,249 across the line regardless of the caliber which is $250 more than the shorter .223-chambered standard Recon.
