SHOT Show Range Day: PWS Shows Off the New UXR Modular Rifle

PWS UXR rifle


We first got a sneak peak at PWS’s new UXR rifle at an event last summer. The UXR – or User Xchange Rifle – is a significant re-thinking of what a modern rifle can be. It’s designed with a folding stock, user configurable barrels, fully ambidextrous controls, and multi-configuration modularity.

PWS plans to make the UXR in a variety of configurations including three magwell configurations for larger calibers (6.5 CM, .308, 8.6 BLK) , STANAG, and AK magazines.

PWS is in the final stages of gettin the UXR into production. Look for them to be available in the first quarter. Here’s their press release . . .

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.
