Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Now all career fields may purchase and use the LMT SOPMOD buttstock for M4 and M4A1 carbines in the USAF inventory. The long-time preferred stock of US Special Operations Command and employed by AFSOC for years, the LMT SOPMOD Stock’s ergonomic features provide comfort, functionality and reliability.

Ask SSD – Is This The LMT SURG Candidate?

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Dear SSD,

This carbine showed up on “House of Cards”. Is it the first public view of LMT’s Suppressor Upper Receiver Group candidate fir SOCOM or did someone in the prop department give tge actor a rifle with no barrel?


Dear Karl,

We’re going to punt and crowdsource this one. Although, we’re leaning toward “short barrel” rather than “SURG”.

Perhaps a reader has some insight?

Tactical-Life.com and Panteao Productions got some excellent video coverage during SHOT Show and we thought it would be great to share it with our readers here at SSD. This video introduces the Lewis Machine & Tool (LMT) DMR Stock and SLK8 Receiver.

I’d also like to mention the additional sponsors: Aimpoint, Dueck Defense, Firebase Combat Studies Group, Hornady, Lewis Machine & Tool, Mystery Ranch, Pitbull Tactical, Safariland, and Zev Technologies. The event would not have been possible without your support.

Finally, thanks to Leah, Tom and Garin for herding us cats and putting up with our incessant attempts to derail your marketing plans. Dave R, the insight into 5.11 was quite eye opening. You guys have assembled quite a team.

STAT and LMT Collaborate on the Quick Fire Sight System

Friday, December 31st, 2010

STAT International, in association with Lewis Machine & Tool (LMT), has developed an angled offset mount system for mini red dot (MRD) optics. The Quick Fire Sight System (QFSS) as it is known, maintains height over bore consistent with the primary optics commonly used on A2 platforms, eliminating the “prairie-dogging” often associated with top mount MRDs. When mounted to the rear of the rail, the red dot can be easily accessed and the dot is already in field of view when at the high ready. According to testing conducted by STAT, 86% of evaluators and testers preferred the rear mounting position which allows the sight to be on the same focal plane as the primary optic.

The QFSS is designed to be used as a primary/backup to a magnified optic such as an ACOG or most Sniper/DM precision optics. This provides the precision shooter the ability to patrol and have a rapid acquisition, close quarter sight at the ready. The LMT manufactured mount attaches to any Picatinny-spec rail, works for both left or right hand, is machined from T6 aluminum and comes with all necessary mounting hardware. The system was initially developed by competitive 3 gun shooters needing quicker, accurate close shot acquisition, and was rapidly adopted by the military close quarter combat community.
