In our full review of the Colt Canada Integrated Upper Receiver (IUR) AR15 style rifle we cover the pros and cons of the rifle. The IUR is the civilian semi automatic version of the Canadian Military C8 service rifle. The upper receiver is a one piece design that has an integral handguard, making the barrel require specialized tools for removal. While this video does focus on the IUR, most of the same pros and cons are also found in Colt Canada's (Diemaco) new Modular Rail Rifle (MRR). We feature a mixture of standard and slow motion footage in this review to show the workings of the IUR with high speed footage, along with GoPro footage from our backpack mount for first person shooting footage.
