SHOT Show 2024: PWS Launches UXR Modular Rifle

PWS (Primary Weapons Systems) is proud to announce the launch of its newest product, the UXR (User Xchange Rifle). This rifle allows for revolutionary, unparalleled modularity. Initially available early 2024 in 5.56 and 300 BLK variations, the UXR platform will also be available in .308 and 8.6 BLK configurations later this year.

The true innovation in the UXR platform lies in the patent-pending Xchange system. The upper receiver of the UXR is the only serialized part of the setup, enabling the shooter to easily transition from configuration to configuration, caliber to caliber.

The UXR also features an incomparable look and feel – combining functionality, ergonomics, and aesthetics into one platform.

Adaptability is the core principle of the UXR, showcased in its many customizable features such as an adjustable buttstock that can fold left or right, an adjustable cheek plate, and ambidextrous-able selector switch, magazine release and even the charging handle.

The UXR platform also features a proprietary internal operation, or a “modified long-stroke piston system”, allowing the rifle to adapt and perform flawlessly with any UXR barrels regardless of caliber.

This allows the user to swap calibers and barrels without needing to adjust the gas system each and every time. The newly designed Bore Evacuator reduces back pressure, especially when a suppressor is being used, making the UXR the perfect platform for suppressed shooting.

UXR Features

  • Barrel Xchange System: An innovative barrel exchange system enabling users to switch between calibers and barrel lengths seamlessly such as .223 Wylde, 308 WIN, and 300 BLK, with new options coming in the future.
  • Modified Long Stroke Piston System: Renowned for reliability and reduced fouling, the UXR retains a similar long-stroke piston system like other legacy PWS products, but improved upon and engineered specifically for the UXR.
  • Bore Evacuator: The innovative bore evacuator ensures superior safety and performance by efficiently directing propellant gases away from the shooter and down the barrel.
  • Precision-Engineered Ambidextrous Receiver: Crafted from a single piece of 7075-T651 aluminum and hard anodized type III Class 2 Mil-Spec 8625 coding for durability, the ambidextrous receiver ensures a rigid platform.
  • Ambidextrous buttstock: Folding buttstock with cheek and length of pull adjustments. Configurable to either left or right-side folding. Mounted using an industry standard 1913 picatinny rail attached to the trigger housing.
  • Adjustable Gas System: 3-position adjustable gas system including a dedicated suppressor setting.
  • .223 Wylde Chambering: Meticulously designed for outstanding accuracy and reliability, accommodating both .223 Remington and 5.56mm NATO.
  • PWS FRC Compensator: A newly introduced compensator contributing to superior recoil management and reduced muzzle rise, enhancing overall shooter control.
  • MLOK Handguard: Fitted with a MLOK handguard that can be switched out for shorter lengths depending on the barrel and caliber used.
  • 41V50 1/8 Twist Barrel: The rifle features a 41V50 steel barrel with a 1/8 twist rate, striking a harmonious balance between durability and maneuverability, ensuring consistent and accurate shot placement.
