The LM308MWS is the American commercial version of the L129A1. Lewis Machine & Tool recently designed and supplied the L129A1 for the UK Special Forces Ministry of Defense. After competing with many other manufactors the new LMT rifle was awared the contract. The L129A1 is based on a proven design, with new features, including a one-piece upper receiver and a "free floating" barrel, which offers better accuracy at longer ranges. The Sharpshooter model will be manufactured in limited quantities and will only be available for a limited time.
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.
The MWS .308 upper receiver with 16" chrome-lined 1:10" twist .308 barrel, standard semi-auto bolt carrier group, tactical charging handle assembly, LM308MWS lower with SOPMOD buttstock, two-stage trigger group, ambi selector and ambi mag release.

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 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.

For me this was a significant purchase. I have been researching and shopping for my ultimate rifle for more than a year.
I have discovered that you just can't beat an LMT 308 MWS Sharpshooter Rifle Package in model # LM308SS, 308 Win, 16 in Blackened Stainless BBL 1x11.25 Twist, 2 Stage Trig, Collapsible Sopmod Stock, Blk/FDE Finish, Pkg, 20+1 Rds.
I challenge you to find one single person who owns one that regrets the purchase. Not gonna happen... Carl Lewis's company builds them right!
