LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Brownells, in collaboration with InRange TV and KE Arms, announced the launch of the “What Would Stoner Do” 2020 Rifle Project during SHOT Show 2020.
Inspired by the original InRange TV WWSD rifle project from 2017, WWSD 2020 attempts to further explore the question of what AR rifle designer Eugene Stoner might do – were he still around and had access to modern, lightweight materials and manufacturing methods.
The result is a very lightweight rifle with a polymer one-piece lower and a pencil barrel. Listed as #100-037-291 at Brownells.com, the WWSD 2020 rifle retails for $1,699.99.
WWSD 2020 Rifles will be available in Spring 2020.
“We’re personally fans of InRangeTV’s work, and have been following Karl and Ian’s videos for quite some time,” said Brownells Director of Product Management Paul Levy. “The collaboration on the WWSD 2020 was initiated after InRangeTV posted a recap of the first WWSD Project. Brownells stocked a lot of those components, and it made sense to us to reach out to see if they’d be interested in building out a complete rifle for resale. KE Arms stepped up to assemble and manufacture the Mk3 Lower, and here we are.”
The heart of the WWSD 2020 rifle is the one-piece polymer Mk3 Lower from KE Arms.
It features several improvements over previous one-piece polymer lowers, including an improved magazine well optimized for P-Mags and D-60 drums, modernized pistol grip angle and texture, and an already-installed ambidextrous PDQ bolt release lever.
The stock will have integral M-LOK® slots and QD socket points for sling-attachment flexibility, along with an internal storage compartment for a cleaning kit or other small parts.
Not only can customers buy complete WWSD 2020 rifles, they can also shop a line of stripped and completed lowers, as well as other components for their own lightweight builds.
