ARJunkie interview with Marty LeClair on the MK12 SPR

Post by JF89 » Sat Mar 09, 2019 2:58 pm

If you guys didnt know, Marty LeClair is owner of Centurion Arms and a former Navy SEAL. Pretty interesting Q&A from ARjunkie. ... y-leclair/

(From the article)

"Q: Monty, you’re a massive source of knowledge when it comes to firearms. Larry Vickers said you were the most “weapons-savvy SEAL he had ever met.” I know that when it comes to the MK12 SPR, you are most certainly the man to call. Can you give our readers just a bit of background?
A: Before I joined the military, I always had a strong interest in firearms. I built my first AR when I was 18. Back then, I was always interested in doing some type of special operations stuff. I ended up joining the military to be a SEAL after I had heard what they were. There, I got some more experience with shooting and firearms stuff.

When I was a little bit more senior, I worked at WARCOM (United States Naval Special Warfare Command) dealing with weapons development. Being a “gun guy” is how I ended up in that seat. I had a lot of weapons knowledge I’d gathered on my own…learning how to build 1911 handguns with Larry Vickers, learning how to build sniper rifles and bolt guns on my own…learning the machine work side of it.

A Unique Learning Opportunity
Over at WARCOM, I was involved with a lot of the weapons programs that were coming around like the MK12, SCAR, the PSR. That helped introduce me to a lot of people in the industry. I learned a lot about technology and also got a lot of good inside information about military specs and why they were the way they were. There, I was also able to visit weapons factories and really see what works and what doesn’t work.

With this information…later on in my career, I started Centurion Arms. We began building uppers and MK12 stuff…things I had seen in the military that I just generally liked, but particularly the MK12."
