LMT is still a small operation. Their parts are out there but you have to be patient and keep an eye open. They have gotten a lot of contracts lately so that makes things even harder. Back in March I decided to put together an LMT MWS with their MARS-H lower. I'm going to use all LMT parts (well except the stock and grip, those are Magpul). The lower is complete and I'm on the lookout for the barrel, BCG, and upper. For the quality I'm willing to wait. Hopefully by Christmas but if not oh well. I also picked up a MARS-L lower just to have after seeing the quality of the -H.



Keep an eye on their website in the near future. I know that they have a new contract with Eastonia. There's hope for over-runs!

I picked up a New Zealand Barrel (5.56) for dirt cheap! Only difference is the bayonet lug is at 3:00 instead of 6:00.

I'm waiting for the enhanced bolt and BCG, and this AR is done. Somewhere down the line, I'll pick up a ACOG for it.

All I know is I bought a couple of lowers several years ago. Really like them. Soon after they were gone and their products became virtually non existent on the retail market.

When and if they come crawling back it won't be easy. Especially after milking the gov tit for so long. Making their products price competitive will be a pill for them to swallow. I am not holding my breath.


They don't have to make price competitive products, they just have to be top kitchen which goes without being said. Loom at KAC, not competrice in the least and it doesnt affect them. Not every AR manufacturer has to have a price point product. There will always be people who will see the value in quality bonds and be willing to pay for it.

I doubt they'll need to crawl back anywhere, they're standing just fine as they are and will grow stronger when they start getting more products to market.

Yeah, the "PSA is just as good as anything else crowd" has a hard time believing anything else.

KAC / LMT and other specialized manufacturers have a business plan and are executing it.

Civies get the leftover capacity and pay, or they don't.

Do it, you will not regret the purchase. Great rifle.
