V Seven Weapons just added a new caliber to their Enlightened series of complete uppers/rifles – .224 Valkyrie.
The 18″ Valkyrie Enlightened Rifle is built around their Enlightened receiver set which makes use of 2055 lithium-aluminum alloy and machining to reduce weight. This is paired with their 15″ Hyper-Light handguard in the buyer’s choice of M-LOK or Key-Mod. V Seven Weapons uses many of their proprietary small parts to further reduce the weight.
The heart of any rifle is the barrel. This one has an 18″ 416R stainless match barrel with a medium contour. It has 1 in 7″ twist and polygonal rifling.
The complete rifle weighs just 5lb 4.8oz in spite of it’s 15″ rail and 18″ barrel.
