M12A1 ICR (Old, Gen-2) by SomeNavySEALs M12A1 ICR (Old, Gen-2) by SomeNavySEALs
[b]Stop faving this old shit[/b] If you like the ICR, go here fave and comment.

Developed by Greyson Arms to fill a standing requirement by the United States Marines Joint Munitions and Lethality Contracting Center for a high accuracy, low recoil battle rifle. For years the Marine Corps had been experimenting with a vast number of assault rifles and battle rifles, leading to a logistical nightmare with a massive range of weapons and cartridges being used through out the Corps. The M12 ICR filled the need for a powerful, well rounded interim weapon and was adopted the first fiscal quarter 500. In 523 the -A1 series fixed several minor design flaws and slightly reduced production costs and added chrome to several components in the mechanism. No requirements have been posted for replacement as of the last fiscal quarter 559. The manufacturer sates the weapon is designed to be comfortable for both human and nakanii shooters, however the ergonomics of the weapon are considered poor at best and nearly unusable at worst.

The ICR ushered in a revival of old-school weapon design, featuring all manual workings, RIS systems, and no electronic components, IFF, user recognition, or inhibitors. The rugged utilitarian design, high accuracy, and stopping power has made it a favorite with Marines as a standard issue weapon and with every other branch and several police agencies as a marksman rifle. It's unique firing system has also been used as the base for several other weapons and has proven difficult for other companies to reproduce without directly copying it.

The the 7.62x51 NATO HV (or +P+ overpressure) is an advanced variant of the standard 7.62N utilizing a high pressure gas propellant generating much higher expansion pressure. The M12A1 is capable of firing standard 7.62N rounds but the lower recoil and lighter expansion may not generate enough force to cycle the weapon in automatic fire. Standard weapons not designed to fire the 7.62HVN can be damaged or destroyed by the extreme pressure.

This really is a great piece of PMG work; however, all the shopping here really detracts from it and doesn't allow the features of the weapon to show as well.

Perhaps, though my intent was to highlight the features.
