One of the most unique rifle modifications in a while is the Project Titan.
The project began as an idea to develop a long range rifle system
that could be deployed by a single mobile user, but retain the
characteristics of a static mounted weapon. Over time the project
evolved and LLARMS discovered through trial runs and feedback that the
system could actually serve two roles due to its stability. Not only
did the rifle provide lightning fast target
re-acquisition at longer distances, it could also serve as a very
precise suppressive fire weapon system when coupled with a 100 round
double drum magazine.
In either role, many users at live demonstrations all compared the
recoil and the ability to control the rifle to that of a small caliber
That is a very rewarding statement considering the Titan fires .308 cartridges.
Pretty Big for a 308, but had it been aluminum, or carbon fiber I think it would have been more effective.
The lines are nice, but it's basically the Muzzle Brake that's really unique in design.
Project Titan: Interesting .308 AR Rifle
The FAQ on Project Titan from the website above is as follows.
Q: What is Project Titan?
A: The "Titan" is a long range precision and suppressive fire weapon system developed for
the .308 AR platform. It allows the rifle to serve two additional roles while remaining
completely modular in design.
Q: What features of the Titan make it unique to the market?
A: The Titan's main feature is a protective and weighted free float shroud that is like nothing else
on the market currently.
Q: What does the Titan shroud do?
A: Unlike most products on the market, the shroud is built of steel to get as much weight and
hardiness into its constructed dimensions. This additional weight absorbs recoil, diminishes
barrel torque, and completely eliminates muzzle rise all together. Its secondary purpose is
to provide nearly indestructible protection for your barrel and barrel components. Where it
is applicable, a fully functional integrated muzzle brake is built into the shroud.
Q: What else does the Titan have to offer?
A: We plan to offer a few different methods of barrel cooling. This is still under development so
keep an eye out for new information coming soon!
Q: Can the Titan shroud be removed?
A: That is one of the best parts of the system! It was designed in a way so that two thumb screws
(or flat hex screws) can be removed from the shroud for maintenance or to simply convert your rifle
back to a lighter weight configuration. It is a completely modular setup.
Q: What does the Titan consist of?
A: The system will come as a stand alone setup or as completed upper assemblies. The Titan system
itself is compromised of the following components;
- Titan Shroud
- Titan Front Shroud Plate
- Titan Rear Shroud Locking Plate
- Titan Muzzle Brake Locking Block (if applicable)
- Modified DPMS Style Barrel Nut (Free Float)
Q: What are the Titan shroud dimensions?
A: The Titan shroud comes in 18", 20", 22", or 24" x 4 1/2" x 3". All components together weigh 15.5lbs
for the largest shroud selection. Our in-house long distance rifle (27" bull barrel) totals out to 32.8lbs
with full gear load out and magazine. (Models using a muzzle brake should add an additional 3" in length)
Q: Isn't the Titan shroud really heavy? What use is such a heavy system?
A: The Titan system while cumbersome, is on par with some of the most heavy weapon systems already
in existance. Two examples are the Barret .50BMG and the SAW. While we do plan to develop this system
for other cartridges, we found that the .308 with the support weight of a larger caliber system offered extremely
fast target re-acquisition and allows the user of any skill level to remain in control with relative ease.
Q: What future plans are there for this system from LLARMS?
A: Upon release we plan to offer this system for the .308 and .223 cartridges with either a standard or bull
barrel. Beyond that we plan to research into a .300, .338 and .50 platform. We've even consisdered making a
model for .22 cartridges, cause who doesn't like a .22? We also would like to offer our system on non-AR
platforms and are looking at some belt feeding applications. To many ideas to list really.
Q: When will the Titan system be available?
A: We are in the last stages of R&D to work out the final kinks and design. We have no definitive date to
announce at this time, but the fourth quarter of 2012 would be our closest guess. These components will
be made to order, so after our initial inventory is depleted expect a 30 day lead time for orders. We are
not in the business of mass production. QA is of the utmost importance to us, so limited quantities will
available at any given time as each unit is hand made.
