The “Billet Beauty” is a limited run of JP’s large-frame LRP-07 platform available in .308, .260 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor or .338 Federal. Highly stylized, this rifle is an homage to the late-war appearance of several American aircraft of World War II, with special inspiration from the B-17 known as Liberty Belle operated until 2011 by The Liberty Foundation out of Claremore, Oklahoma.
The hallmark paint scheme of the bomber is captured by a two-tone Cerakote treatment (with optional accent color) coupled with OD Green Magpul furniture and black accents in the trigger, safety, charging handle slider and mag release. The Magpul MOE stock features a printed rendition of the B-17 tail markings, while the blasted, stainless barrel receives a blackening of Cerakote overspray to evoke the distinctive oil smoke stains of the aircraft’s radial engines. Finally, the sides of the magazine well are fitted with art plates displaying both the period Army Air Force logo and specially commissioned bomber girl nose art.
With only 25 pieces being produced, the ordering window for the Billet Beauty is open only while the supply lasts and no later than March 1st.
The Presentation Grade Finish has been the signature of JP Enterprises’ billet rifles for over a decade since the launch of their CTR-02 in 2002. In collaboration with master engraver Brian Powley, JP has now debuted what they consider an even higher level of cosmetic refinement for this small-frame platform.
The Engraved Edition CTR-02 receives the entirety of JP’s Presentation Grade Finish whereby the flats of the receiver set as well as various accents and the complete barrel are polished to a mirror sheen. On top of this, each of these limited number of receiver sets is set apart by custom engraved flourishes adorning the receiver flats to evoke a merger of old-world craftsmanship with the cutting edge of modern rifle refinement.
With an initial run of these receiver sets now available, JP is anticipating a warm reception by shooters eager for a rifle that stands apart from any other AR available.
