Officially the #1 domestic gun manufacturer in terms of overall clout>Owner with a catchy nameKarl Lewis>Any product used in the wildKarl Lewis invented the MK18 :)>Gucci LowerThe MARS-L is the best AR Lower on the market nothing can be debated or refuted, this is all facts
id get a radian AR over an LMT AR
id get an aero AR over a radian AR
>>49202249Radian is too futuristicLMT keeps the Gucci Mil-Spec
id get an anderson AR over an aero AR
I have two LMT mars-L lowers because it's the best on the planet. No other reason.
>>49202218Also a honest business practice that taking care of their customer.
>clout>gucciFuck. Reddit discovered LMT.
>>49202218Yeah their ambi lower is pretty hard to beat. I coom everytime I lock my bolt with my index finger. Their uppers are pretty good but not anything worth bragging about.
>>49202218LMT went on with their sale of rifles to NZ despite their gun ban.Take that as you will.
>>49202249>>49202280>>49202295I’d get literally anything else over an AR.
>>49202749>full auto rifles to NZ law enforcement/military>gun ban is somehow relevantno
>>49202249>Radiangay subpar controls
>>49202749>company made money Oh the horror!!!
>>49202218arent they they company that sells 12lb 10.5" rifles? cringe
>>49202218>not posting superior KACKeep gargling that cock OP
LMT is great
>>49202900I want an MWS but i keep reading about how heavy it is and how gassy it is shooting suppressed
>>49202975>heavyIt's pretty heavy, yeah.>gassyprobably depends a lot on the specific can used. I don't think it's particularly worse than any other AR10, but many people incorrectly consider an adjustable gas block a must have item, and you aren't getting one on an MWS.
>>49202375NZDF Staff officer here . Wrt the MARS-LThe gats were so fucked up when we got them that we had to replace all firing pins , trigger mechs , and bolt heads. We had cracking firing pins, 2lb Triggers and Bolt lugs shearing left right and center. We also had problems with cracked receivers and out of spec picatinny rail. LMT Was apprehensive to fix these things but were obligated to. We had to go back to using Steyr AUG for a couple months. The rifles we were sent were mass produced and performed as such , they weren't the hand fitted examples we got sent for evaluation.
>>49203085>The gats were so fucked up when we got themlmao barely any guns had a problem at all, but LMT replaced everything to be safe anyway.
>>49203127*citation needed*Source ; Trust me bro
>>49203168The source is LMT themselves :^)"A handful of firing pins [less than one tenth of one percent] were reported to break or have higher than expected wear after a high round count. We did a thorough analysis of the situation and determined that some firing pins were not tempered correctly by our heat treater. We therefore decided that in order to ensure all rifles had the highest quality firing pin we replaced them all. While replacing these firing pins it was determined there was a small quantity of selector switches and carriers [also less than one tenth of one percent] that showed some premature wear. These have been replaced to provide excellent customer service. We feel this is representative of the value we place on the partnership we have with NZDF.">>49203085>hand fitted examples>AR15yeah that's not how it works.
>>49202218Love my LMT but Karl needs to consider better barrel profiles and put out more barrel options. I saw a 7.62x39 barrel once and it was snapped up in like 15 minutes
>>49203085Got any evidence of that?
>>49203085Nice reddit spacing larper. Literally noone in the history of ever has brought forth an LMT rifle with these types of massive issues.Go back to cuckkit.
>>49203210Haters didn't like it, but that's a good example of honest business practices.
>>49202218>LMTLet'sMimicTaiwanTaiwan Numba 1
>>49202249Nah. LMTs bolt carrier revisions are superb. Their monolithic upper is great. QD barrel system with its return to zero means switching to 300blk means a barrel, not a whole upper. Better lower. UK, New Zealand, Estonia. Call me when Radian has a mil contract while remaining Gucci at the same time.
>>49203085But the UK and Estonian rifles have been magically flawless. I think you’re a larping triple faggot.
>>49203400>tfw no poor mans FNC build
>>49203588Why not the trijicon 6x48 to complete the Brit look?
>>49203246I remember a few years back they had a recall for their New Zealand uppers for BCGs cracking, a friend talked me into almost buying one because they were on sale for like $800 at Brownells.
>>49203400Taiwan has the most advanced CNC machines in the world.
>>49203613I had the accupower sitting around when I bought the rifle. I’d like the 6x48 eventually.
>less than one tenth of one percent1:1000 is 10x acceptable MTBF by damage
>>49202749If you do not fight a system that is acting against you, you deserve to be subjugated by it. Swine.
>quad rail Chadswould agree once more
>>49202218found the spendfag cope thread
>>49205185This is the luxury of not being poor, I never have to go out of my way to find people coping; they come to me.
Anyone else part of the green gang? I know there s a few of you out there
>>49202749I literally dont understand what point you were trying to make. LMTs first major military sale was selling AR10s to the UK, a country that hasn't allowed their citizens to own such weapon since 1998 and hasn't regarded the use of firearms in self defense as legitimate and justified since the 1930s. For LMT to suddenly make some ideological stand over NZ laws would be hypocritical.
>>49203085Thats demonstrably not factual, based on testimony from both NZDF and LMT and you're a phony anyway. Kiwis dont call them AUGs, they either called them F88s or "IW Steyrs".
>>49205324Any US based arms manufacturer selling weapons to countries that would sooner put a bullet in their people using those arms, than to give them to those very same people, deserve nothing less than the lowest circles of hell reserved for hypocrites and brand whores
>>49205359That pretty much just leaves out the gun companies that don't sell the LE or Mil at all.
I wish I could find someone to buy my LMT for what I paid for it. What a waste of money.
>>49202218Based thread. LMT doesn’t get enough love on here. picrel is one i bought used gonna convert to SBR. finally got a monolithic upper to pair with mars lower build, just need a bolt carrier group.
>>49205439this is a larp, LMTs are all above msrp on gunbroker
>>49202975They offer a LW barrel option and Mlok uppers if weight is that big of a deal. There's a company (BRT?) That offers custom reducing gas tubes if plan on shooting suppressed exclusively.Other than that, embrace the weight, helps keep you on target on the bench.
>>49205462This. I just sold an old ass non-ambi stripped gen 1 MWS lower for $750, was only up about an hour.
>>49205439I got mine for 500 on sale and sold for 700. upper only.
>>49205479>They offer a LW barrel option and Mlok uppers if weight is that big of a deal.Yeah, that still won't make it a light rifle. A lightweight mlok MWS is still nearly 9lbs unloaded.A LaRue AR10 with a lightweight barrel is under 8lbs.
>>49205451My buddy works at lmt and showed me some of the shit he does. they have a very good manufacturing set up and make great rifles. their tolerances are fucking tight
>reduce barrel length>"Invent" new gun
>>49203646No, they had issues with a handful of firing pins not being heat treated properly so they replaced them all
>>49202218during freedom week they ran out of polymer mags (of all types) so I ha to buy LMT mags...they're shit
>>49207984>the gas station was out of doritos so i got pork rinds
>>49207585>doesn't check outsourced parts and just takes their word for itThe most retarded thing I've ever heard.
>>49205451Maybe I'm sweating the small stuff but I dont like how the gas block is exposed on some of their uppers.
>>49209790>Doesn’t understand how batch testing worksIt’s okay usually stupid people don’t realize they are stupid
>>49203667of course a nation full of chinks that can't make chinesium shit would have advanced CNCRepublic of Chinesium
>>49205091>lost 3% cash discountbig oofskies
>>49202771in the future, they write ballads about this man.
sorry but the KAC ambi lower is cooler
