V Seven just added to their line of pistols and SBRs with the new 8.5″ LR Enlightened Pistol. As you might guess from the name, the new pistol is built around an 8.5″ barrel; their 8.5” 556/223 Stainless fluted barrel with .750 17-4 stainless gas block, to be exact. The barrel features V7’s well known polygonal rifling and a 1 in 7″ twist.
The upper includes several other highlights like the Hyper-Light Magnesium 9.2” rail in the user’s choice of Key-Mod or M-LOK, 1/2×28 Titanium HELIOS linear comp in DLC black finish, and a host of other V7 lightweight parts. The lower is V7’s Enlightened 2055 Lithium-aluminum lower receiver with their QD endplate. It is also chalked full of V7’s proprietary lightweight parts.
The 8.5″ LR Enlightened Pistol is also available as a complete upper.
