I heard the barrel on RPR takes AR wrench for easy replacement but I'm wondering if it's possible to swap between 6.5 and 308 ? Maybe this will solve my debate problem ImageUploadedByOutdoor Forums1439737847.321921.jpg

It's NOT a "switch barrel" rifle if that is what you are asking. However, since it does have a barrel nut, it is no more difficult to change a barrel on, than say a Savage. But you WILL need the proper tools to check the headspace after the swap. Go and no go gauges will do the trick

To reiterate what msp3903, yes, you can swap the barrels but it's not set up to be a quick-change barrel like the Blaser (and others).

Headspace has to be checked and set EVERY time you swap barrels.
