LMT® has developed numerous innovations over the last 35+ years and, as a result, long-time customers have seen models come and go from our arsenal. Veterans of our products will remember the Defender 2000. Released in 2000, this model was the first in the MRP® family and the progenitor of the many customization options you see in our products today. Historically, LMT® products have held a high price point due to the quality and attention to detail given every rifle. Members of our team have worked to provide an entry-level rifle for customers new to the LMT® family. This is the MWS® Defender.
LMT® patented monolithic Modular Weapon System, MWS®. The only true monolithic rail platform, milled from a single solid piece of aerospace aluminum forging. It utilizes two locking bolts accessible from the side of the receiver to lock in the barrel extension. This patented technology engages the barrel extension for a full 360 degrees around the extension and makes the barrel removable within seconds with a return to zero of the same barrel. One receiver can utilize numerous barrels of varying length, material, and caliber.
The MLKMWS upper receiver has 19.25″ of picatinny rail on the 12 o’clock position. The remaining 7 sides provide M-LOK compatible attachment points.
MWS® barrels utilize a low profile gas block and straight gas tube. They possess proprietary coating and are cryogenically treated for long term durability.
The LM308MWS lower receiver features our EDM machined two-stage trigger, ambidextrous magazine release and safety selector, endplate with QD swivel point, LMT® ergonomic textured grip, and M4 stock. As with all LMT® lower receivers, the extension tube is coated with dry film lubricant.
This weapon system comes with one magazine and owner’s manual
Only available for purchase through Federal Firearms Licensed Dealers. All LMT® firearms can also be purchased with select-fire configuration for use by qualified agencies.
