Houlding Precision Firearms has come out with a 6.2-pound, custom AR15 known as the HPF-WRAITH.
The WRAITH features the newest member of the HPF family of handguards, the HPF-NMX Handguard. It’s made out of ultra-light carbon fiber, not wrapped or painted, and finished with billet end caps, HPF officials maintain.
The NMX has the latest Magpul M-Lok accessory rail system slots in all positions for maximum versatility. The ergonomic octagonal shape of the NMX ensures a sure grip and includes the very light, aluminum HPF-Barrel Nut.
Despite its lightweight feel, the quality and durability have not been compromised, HPF officials maintain.
The HPF-WRAITH includes the HPF-15 Receiver Set which is CNC machined from solid blocks of 7075 T6 billet aluminum and custom fit to exacting tolerances.
The HPF-WRAITH comes with an HPF-Curse muzzle brake. This efficient muzzle brake, designed for competition shooting, has 60° off set porting to prevent muzzle rise and smaller ports to prevent muzzle blast on the firing line.
The 16” match grade, mid-length gas system barrel with 1:8 twist ensures optimum reliability and accuracy.
Each receiver has an octagonal reinforced design that allows for superior rigidity and durability. The HPF-15 Lower Receiver has an integrated trigger guard, flared and beveled magazine well for efficient speed loads and every HPF-15 Billet Receiver is mil-spec hard coat anodized for a beautiful and durable finish.
The HPF-WRAITH build is completed with the Geissele Super Dynamic 3 Gun trigger (SD-3G). This single stage, 2.5 pound competition trigger with a flat trigger shoe was chosen for its short reset and winning performance.
Next, a Low Mass Bolt Carrier Group, CNC machined with extra material relieved for low mass weight. All components are nickel Teflon coated for lubricity and durability. Gas key is properly staked and the BCG wipes clean.
Continuing with their devotion to lightweight yet strong, Houlding has created the HPF-ULStock. Like the NMX Handguard, the ULStock uses real (not wrapped or painted) ultra-light carbon fiber for the buffer tube.
The stock is available in both carbine and rifle lengths and is finished with billet aluminum butt plate and threaded adaptor. Lastly, a low pro gas block, medium latch charging handle, Magpul pistol grip, sights and BAD Lever complete this rifle.
Houlding Firearms will be offering an introductory price of $1999 for the HPF-WRAITH Rifle but only for a limited time. It is scheduled to retail for $2,499 and include a Flambeau rifle case.
