LaRue Tactical PredatOBR® 7.62
View Individual State
The PredatOBR 7.62 was designed for those who are searching for a hybrid cross
between the standard OBR and PredatAR 7.62x51 Rifles. The PredatOBR takes the
highly accurate OBR 7.62 design, and lightens it in every possible way with the
least-possible impact to the accuracy that the standard OBR is known for.
The most remarkable feature of the PredatOBR is its ability to be completely
“broken down” and stored into the optional Rollup Bag and Toolbox. The PredatOBR
handguard has a locking stainless steel QD Lever system on each side. Once the
levers are released, the handguard slides off of the upper assembly in seconds.
The PredatOBR's barrel can easily be removed with the supplied PredatOBR Barrel
Wrench, unscrew the Barrel Nut from Receiver and pull the Barrel Assembly free
from Receiver. No need to remove the gas tube, gas block or muzzle device.
Reverse the process to reinstall. Hand-tighten Barrel Nut and torque
approximately 1/8-turn past hand-tight (Approximately 40-50 foot pounds). Once
reassembled correctly, the point of impact (POI) shift will be 0.0 to 0.5 MOA of the original.
PredatOBR barrels are chambered in 7.62x51mm, and feature rifling in a 1/10
twist rate. All barrels are threaded in 5/8 x 24. Like the OBR and PredatAR
riles, LaRue has eliminated the conventional AR barrel nut and bolt the
handguard directly to the proprietary upper receiver, creating a true
“free-float” barrel. The handguard does not touch the barrel or barrel nut at
any place. The zero-MOA upper rail provides plenty of room for weapon-mounted
night-vision day/night combinations. Both the upper and lower are CNC-machined
from billet aluminum for the optimum fit and consistency. Even though it has
been lightened certain features, there is still additional material in strategic
areas to achieve maximum accuracy.
The PredatOBR has threaded stainless-steel hard-points over the entire length of
the handguard at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. These hard-points have an
integral spine built-in for structural support. Provided with the system are
three 3-inch MIL-STD-1913 rail sections that can be positioned anywhere along
the handguard, per operator preference. These rail sections are
attachable/detachable using a supplied tool (Torx® T-15 wrench). The rail
sections are CNC-machined from billet aluminum. This robust solution provides a
perfect precision mounting space for aiming lasers, illumination and bipods.
The PredatOBR's Port Selector Technology™ (PST) gas block is adjustable, to aid
in the optimum function when using a sound suppressor. This special gas block
contains a dual port mechanism that is operated by rotating a lever from one
side to another. When the lever is rotated to the right-side of the rifle, the
gasses are reduced, to compensate for the extra blowback created by the
suppressor. When rotated to the left side, the gasses are increased for use
without a suppressor.
The LaRue Tactical 6-position Retract Action Trigger (R.A.T.) Stock comes
standard with every PredatOBR. It is ergonomic, has protected control surfaces
and contains a set of cleaning rods in an internal compartment. Since the height
of the 12 o’clock rail is at the optimum position, there is no need for a cheek
riser as part of this system.

About LaRue Firearm Accuracy:
LaRue accuracy is known world-wide. The accuracy of each LaRue Rifle is proven at our 100-yard tunnel using match-grade ammunition. No LaRue firearm can leave the facility unless it obtains accuracy of less-than 1 MOA (1.047”) at 100 Yards. Each firearm ships with a copy of a 3-round group obtained from that actual firearm. While we guarantee the rifle is capable of sub-MOA accuracy, we can not guarantee the end-user will be able to shoot sub-MOA…since we have no control over shooting proficiency, familiarity with the system, ammunition choice, environmental factors, etc. LaRue firearms are precision instruments that require discipline, training, proper ammunition and maintenance to yield the best results.
LaRue 7.62 rifles with Port Selector Technology (PST) have been optimized for
best-performance with SureFire suppressors. We understand that there are dozens
of 7.62 suppressors to choose from on the market at this time. We feel that
SureFire suppressors fall somewhere in the middle-range in regards to effect of
performance with gas-operated rifles. Many users have met with success operating
different models of their choice. Combined with variables in ammunition, 7.62
suppressor owners have experienced a large spectrum of conditions (much greater
than seen with 5.56 suppressors). This range of variables is easy to manage with
a bolt-action 7.62, but with a gas-operated system it is not. While we made a
concerted effort to design a gas system that will work with a wide range of
suppressors, we can not guarantee proper-function with suppressor hardware other
About the “Black Gold” Trigger:
We are very proud to announce that we’ve selected the American Trigger
Corporation AR Gold trigger to be installed in LaRue PredatOBRs going forward.
These are a single stage trigger with take-up and a super short reset, similar
in feel to a best-grade 1911 trigger, providing the optimum trigger action for a
wide variety of shooting styles and disciplines. AR Gold Triggers have been used
by some of the best competition shooters in the world for the last few years and
dominate the top of the 3 Gun competition world.
We have been testing and evaluating these triggers for well over a year, to
ensure that they're up to our standard of quality. Our evaluation has shown the
AR Gold to be magnificent and we're proud to include them as part of our new
product line. One thing that is unusual about these triggers installed in our
LaRue PredatOBRs, is they are treated with an IonBond black instead of American
Trigger’s normal IonBond Gold. This is a custom color that is only available on
LaRue Tactical rifles. These triggers will be standard in the LaRue PredatOBR in
both 5.56 and 7.62 caliber.
