Integral RPR from Witt Machine

No, you haven’t traveled through a time machine where John Arthur Ceiner cans are actually decent. Thankfully, there’s been no more of that in recent years. Nor have you come across some sort of April Fools’ joke, where we are reviewing and advocating something from the same realm. Mitch WerBell? Oh hell no, our major throwback issue was the last one, not this one.

The integral RPR from Witt Machine only looks goofy if you don’t have any reference point. Namely, it only looks a bit dickerty, because it’s sleeved from the muzzle all the way down to just forward of the chamber.

Inside the guts, there’s a different story to be told. While usually we’d want an integral gun to be shorter than a barrel/silencer combination, since the RPR is built for long range, shortening the barrel would effectively shorten capabilities. And since this one happens to be in 308 Winchester, we want all the capability we can get.

Design
Witt Machine starts with a basic 20-inch RPR barrel, then a 10-inch two-piece monocore is threaded on (the first section being a brake-style and the second being more of a traditional monocore).

The monocore starts with a brake pattern before decisively moving to a more traditional design.

The exterior of the barrel is threaded near the base to accept the rear sleeve retainer. Then just below the 1.75-inch diameter sleeve rotates onto the whole shebang. Six hex screws are used to secure the end of the sleeve to the monocore, also giving the added benefit of adding some rigidity to the barrel itself. The Master of Arms Enyo, featured in Issue 33 used a similar method to increase rigidity.

Still, at just over 48 inches long with the stock unfolded we aren’t talking about a tiny titan.

With its folding stock, the Witt Integral RPR is no longer than a 16-inch rifle with a can and collapsed stock.
