Hi Guys,

Recently I had the opportunity to get some face time and range time with Ben from JP Enterprises and the brand new LRI-20 upper receiver. I have always had a great respect for JP rifles when I shot 3gun, and I know their reputation for accuracy is respected here as well. This new upper receiver offers an integrated barrel nut and then a large threaded outside surface for direct mounting of their MKIII line of hand guards. This will be more formally announced at SHOT show but they announced it recently and are available. I know the LRP-07 is high regarded here by many as Frank as well but this new receiver appears to elevate their rifles even more. Yes I was impressed and that's probably obvious in the video :) Im still new to precision rifles but Ive had the pleasure of shooting and building several large frame guns and the JP really felt nice.

I own an LRP-07, and it is absolutely my primary gun for just about everything Long Range. It is the best gas gun I have ever used, and the most innovative with their excellent side charger and buffering systems.

I shot this group last weekend with it at midnight or some shit with my NV rig to verify zero.

All THAT said, I will now take this chance to be a dick.

A company that makes handguard, uppers, complete guns etc etc etc is not innovating when they realize they can just CNC machine the damn upper to take the rail directly.

Instead, they are just coming back into line with the state of the art.

I talked to Ben two weeks ago and he told me to keep an eye out for something new, I guess this is what he was talking about. The 6.5CM LRP-07 is averaging .70-.60 MOA with a somewhat knowledgeable Semi Shooter, if they can show that this new design has improved the existing accuracy could be interesting.

I like the idea. Still waiting for the small diameter HG they announced at SHOT though. If they made it small frame and somehow got away from the tube handguards I'd be really interested.

The the Title of this thread should be changed its not Monolithic, that would mean a one piece continuous top rail that starts on the receiver (IE) Larue, LMT, Modular is the key word here.

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed but JP is also offering their rifles with Proof CB Barrels now as well.

Sweet looking rifle. There must be something to beefing up the front of the receiver. There are several companies that have done this already.

I wonder how much the rifle costs? And why do they still use tube hand guards?

I’d love to own/shoot one.

That’s what JP called it, so what I listed it as to start the conversation.

Love my JP upper, but why not M-Lok? That isn't M-Lok compliant is it? ARs, 9mm, 5.56, M-Lok. I'm trying to get rid of variables and different systems.

For that price you could get a truly monolithic rifle and switch barrel capabilities with an LMT MARS. Nothing against JP, great company.
