CMMG Adds 6.5 Grendel to the MkW ANVIL Rifle Series

CMMG has added a new caliber, the 6.5 Grendel, to its line-up of MkW ANVIL rifles.

This new addition will add three new rifles to the line-up, less than a year after CMMG introduced the MkW ANVIL series, originally available chambered only for .458 SOCOM.

CMMG’s MkW ANVIL rifle series is a mid-sized AR platform, most defined by CMMG’s POWERBOLT design, which uses a modified AR10-sized bolt with the goal of increasing durability.  This allows the rifles to be chambered for larger cartridges like the 6.5 Grendel while avoiding the thin and fragile bolt face that would be necessary with an AR15 bolt.

Other features of CMMG’s MkW ANVIL series include the shortened AR10 frame for minimized weight and maximized comfort.  Despite the AR10 frame, the magwell in the lower receiver has been specially designed to accept standard AR15 magazines, allowing the rifles in the series to shoot larger calibers.

The MkW ANVIL in 6.5 Grendel includes a barrel with medium taper 416SS SBN with a 1:8 Twist and threaded 5/8-24.  Each MkW ANVIL chambered for 6.5 Grendel ships with a 10 round magazine.

If you already own a CMMG MkW ANVIL in .458 SOCOM, don’t worry about missing out.  CMMG will also offer 6.5 Grendel upper receiver groups that will be compatible with any MkW ANVIL lower.
