Nice. I got to finger fuck a few Lancers and shoot one at Woody's Designated Marksman Match back in the spring and the fit, finish, accuracy, and quality really impressed me. Im even using one of the extra long hangduards on a build currently. I really like the large frame design they have going. Looks to me like a monolithic upper with built in cant to the top rail, but I might be seeing things.
Lancer has really been stepping up, both in terms of new offerings like this large-frame receiver set, as well as their entire line of parts/accessories and mags. I'm really looking forward to their upcoming .308 DPMS/KAC pattern mags. The prototypes look damned impressive and should really give "other" competitors in the marketplace with similar offerings a run for their money if they can keep the prices on them comparable...I'm sure the high quality and durability will be there based on their other offerings/mags.
I had my heart set on one of the prize table rifles at Woodys match, but breaking my bolt knob off cost us the match. I probably would have sold my JP CTR02 and used the Lancer for 3 gun. Very nice rifles, and mags too.
