The .308 Modular Weapon System is the weapon of choice for operators worldwide. The British Ministry of Defense realized, upon stringent evaluation of the Lewis Machine and Tool .308 MWS, that the .308 MWS was best suited for the British Sharpshooters in Afghanistan. Further, the .308 MWS was crowned as their new L129A1 rifle because failure is not an option. With superior reliability and flexibility that you want and the knock-down power that you need, the LMT .308MWS is in a class all of its own.

Lewis Machine & Tool Company (LMT) was founded in 1980 to provide the US military, law enforcement and government agencies with high quality weapons, components, and modular weapon systems. Since the beginning, the LMT™ mission has been to meet their customer's expectations of quality, price and delivery of precision machined parts, weapon systems, assemblies and engineering services. In their thirty years of doing business in Milan, Illinois, LMT has always been environmentally responsible, as well as working to become an asset of their community while providing their employees with a rewarding and challenging work place.
LMT continues to serve the US military, law enforcement and government agencies, and has expanded to include foreign military services as well as commercial retailers. LMT's engineers design and fabricate complete weapon systems, grenade launchers, and Monolithic Rail Platform (MRP™) systems specifically for the demanding environments that the military and law enforcement face on a day-to-day basis whether in urban environments or in desert combat situations. LMT produces a full line of accessories and components for the commercial market complementing any M16 or AR15 type weapon.
In response to the growing demand for quick-change barrel systems, Karl Lewis, President of LMT, designed the Monolithic Rail Platform. The MRP™ upper receiver is a one-piece lightweight upper receiver with an integral forend. Mil-Std 1913 rails run from front to the forend on each of the four sides. The MRP™ receiver comes in two different lengths, one traditional rifle and the other for Close Quarter Battle (CQB). With four rails, the MRP™ system offers plenty of places for accessories such as optics and lights.
Lewis Machine & Tool Company recently qualified as a 2005 GSA supplier. As a US Government Services Administration (GSA) qualified vendor, LMT™ products are available to over 300,000 Federal users worldwide.
Lewis Machine & Tool Company has also been recognized on several levels for their adherence to quality engineering and excellence in business.
