Starting in 1980 as Austin Precision Products, LaRue Tactical was founded in 1995 and is based out of Leander, Texas.
LaRue Tactical is known worldwide for sniper targets, quick detachable mounting solutions, and hyper-accurate 7.62mm and 5.56mm rifle systems.
But I’ll let him tell you himself.
Hello, and welcome to the Dead Center of Precision.
I’m Mark LaRue, and all of us here at LT want your business. Be advised you don’t have to “log on” to look around our website, so just have at it. E-mail us with any questions you may have, and we’ll answer them as quickly as we can.
We make all this stuff right here in our own production CNC machine shop. I founded this shop in 1980 … we know machining, and folks tell us it shows. We have a fleet of CNC machines and a team that knows how to make them dance. Our strong point is our guarantee – “If you ain’t happy, then we ain’t happy.”
This “Lifetime” guarantee means that as long as I’m alive, you can return any defective LaRue made part for a full refund or exchange. :-).
That’s about it, enjoy. ~ LaRue Tactical Website
THE CHASSIS & FURNITURE
The Siete’s CNC-machined Billet Action is mated into its CNC-machined aluminum chassis combined with a Precision LaRue Match-Grade Barrel. The tool-less, quick-detachable full free-floating handguard features M-Lok attach points allowing you to attach multiple accessories such as a bipod, bullet quivers, lasers, etc.
The Chassis is rounded on all edges for extra comfort while slung. The precisely machined mating surfaces form an exceptional bed for the action, optimizing accuracy. The magwell accepts AICS pattern magazines with a generous magazine drop-latch for easy use, even with gloved hands. A reinforced handguard junction with stainless-steel pins adds rigidity to the forend.
The Siete is fitted with a modified LaRue Rat Stock on a folding 6-position M-4 profile machined stock extension. A robust release button unlocks the stock, allowing it to be folded along the left side for easy packing. A set of 3 different height RISR 2.0 risers are included to get your eye aligned perfectly with the scope’s reticle. The riser can be securely positioned in three different slots in the stock.
A LaRue A-PEG Grip aligns the shooter’s index finger in perfect alignment with the trigger shoe. The Timney Trigger breaks at a crisp 2.5 lbs.
The precision LaRue Match-Grade 23” quick-change barrel is a 6.5 CM medium-weight contour with a 1/8 twist rifling and a (5/8-24) threaded muzzle. Included in the kit are a preset (40 ft-lb) LaRue-made Torque Wrench and Action Bar for easy caliber changes. Once torqued properly, a small portal on the handguard aligns with the caliber markings on the barrel.
