    LR-300 ML The main technical difference

As a result, managed to reduce the overall length of the weapon and set to automatic, folding butt sideways. Furthermore been redesigned upper slide box.

    rifle LR-300 uses the vapor-automatic direct supply of powder gases inside the bolt (type M16 / AR-15), however, the gas tube is greatly shortened and has high rigidity. Her rear end is actually posted on the barrel inside forearm and the bolt carrier attached to the elongated tube at the front position of the shutter are on the vapor tube, forming a closed gas path from the hole in the barrel to the slide frame. This solution enables the release of excess propellant gases out of the receiver (ie, within the forearm), and also to place the recoil spring around the bolt connected to the tube inside the forearm above the barrel.
