War Sport is a maker of high end (read: expensive) AR 15s designed to be just the gun you need out of the box with no further improvements necessary. I had the opportunity to shoot some of their rifles in 2015 and found them to work as advertised. For 2016, War Sport has cleaned up their lineup a bit to focus on their two models, the LVOA and the GPR, exclusively. As part of that release, they’ve put the GPR-CC on the market . . .
War Sport is likely known best for the LVOA model (more on that later), but several years back they released a slightly more pedestrian AR series called the General Purpose Rifle (GPR) to appeal to a larger audience of interested buyers. The GPR came in several flavors including a plastic clamshell handguard M4gery model, and the “E” model which included a free floated hand guard and slightly upgraded componentry across the board.
The revised GPR lineup does away with the base model and makes some subtle tweaks to the “E” model, which is now superseded by the Combat/Competition (CC) model. You can still buy the base and “E” models while supplies last, but once they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
One of the biggest and most welcome changes to the model is War Sport’s concession to those with silencers. The GPR and GPR-E had a 14.7″ barrel with a pinned and welded compensator. The “E” model will feature a 16.1″ barrel with a non fixed muzzle device. They’ve also punted the Bravo B5 stock in favor of a Magpul CTR. Otherwise, it remains fairly close to the “E” model in form factor, trigger, hand guard, etc. MSRP will be $2650.
