CMMG Adds the 6.5 Grendel to the MkW ANVIL Line

In the world of modern cartridges, the 6.5 Creedmoor seems to be getting a lot of attention lately. However, CMMG is showing a little love for the “other” .264-caliber cartridge: the 6.5 Grendel. The company announced that it was expanding its MkW ANVIL line to include several new semi-automatic rifles and pistols chamber for the 6.5 Grendel.

The MkW ANVIL line is less than a year old. It was originally designed to chamber the .458 SOCOM cartridge and is a hybrid design. CMMG calls this its midsize AR platform. The guns use AR-10 sized lowers with magazine wells that are designed to accept standard AR-15 magazines. The uppers are shortened by 0.75” as compared to a standard AR-10 upper.

MkW ANVIL rifles use modified AR-10 sized bolts for increased durability. Called the POWERBOLT, the bolt is a unique CMMG design. According to the company, the standard AR sized bolt would need material milled from it to provide optimal reliability with the 6.5 Grendel. With the AR 10 sized power bolt, CMMG is able to design a system that is reliable yet has enough meat on it to be extremely durable.

The new MkW ANVIL guns are offered in a variety of configurations that range in price from $1699.95 to $1999.95. Additionally, the company will offer upper receiver groups to customers who already own an MkW ANVIL chambered in .458 SOCOM. The upper groups will range in price from $1049.95 to $1099.95.
