How do I buy a suppressor?

Suppressors are currently legal in 42 states. If you are interested in purchasing a suppressor, you should follow these general guidlines:

  • Find a local Class 3 dealer. If you do not know if your dealer sells NFA items, ask them if they handle such purchases or if they suggest another local dealer.
  • Once you’ve made contact with an approved dealer, you’ll need to select and purchase a suppressor (we highly suggest an LMT VBS). You will not be able to take possession of your suppressor until the transfer process is complete.
  • The dealer should assist you with the Form 4 process of an NFA transfer. The process includes filling out the Form 4 documents, visiting your local chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) or local police chief, obtaining completed finger print cards, and a check for $200(your NFA tax stamp). The dealer should be familiar with this local process and will be able to assist you. You will need the following:
    • Completed Form 5330.20
    • Two fingerprint cards
    • Two passport photos
    • $200 check made payable to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
    • Both copies of your completed Form 4’s
  • Once you have everything you need to submit a Form 4 transfer send it all in to the ATF and wait. This wait may be 6 months or more as purchasing suppressors has grown greatly among American marksmen and shooting enthusiasts. Suppressors greatly enhanced the shooting experience and is highly worth the wait.

How do I buy an SBR(Rifle with a barrel less than 16″)?

Short barreled rifles are currently legal in 43 states. Some states or local areas may have different restrictions on SBR’s, so you should check with local laws prior to making purchases. If you are interested in purchasing an SBR, you should follow these general guidlines:

  • Find a local Class 3 dealer. If you do not know if your dealer sells NFA items, ask them if they handle such purchases or if they suggest another local dealer.
  • Once you’ve made contacted with an approved dealer, you’ll need to select and purchase an SBR (we highly suggest an LMT PDW). You will not be able to take possession until after the transfer is complete.
  • The dealer should assist you with the Form 4 process of an NFA transfer. The process includes filling out the Form 4 documents for a weapon already in the NFA registry, visiting your local chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) or local police chief, obtaining completed finger print cards, a and check for $200(your NFA tax stamp.) The dealer should be familiar with this local process and will be able to assist you. You will need the following:

    • Two fingerprint cards
    • Two passport photos
    • $200 check made payable to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
    • Both copies of your completed Form 4’s
  • Once you have everything you need to submit a Form 4 transfer send it all in to the ATF and wait. This wait may be 6 months or more as purchasing SBR’s and suppressors has grown greatly among American marksmen and shooting enthusiasts. SBR’s  and suppressors greatly enhanced the shooting experience and is highly worth the wait.

Another option is to Form 1 or manufacture an SBR. This process is a little more lengthy and involves the individual creating their own SBR from a non-restricted firearm. We highly suggest that if you choose to Form 1 an SBR that you seek the guidance of a local class 3 dealer.

What are the advantages of the Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group?

The LMT Enhanced BCG has many features to cure or improve common issues on the AR-15 type weapon system. See below the list of features and advantages to using the Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group.

  • Enhanced “Lobster Tail” extractor: This unique extra extractor utilizes two specific springs vs one standard spring to provide a very positive capture on the rim of the case.
  • Enhanced bolt lugs: Our specifically cut bolt reduces impact shock and wear on the lugs themselves while improving their strength. You’ll notice one lug, opposite of the extractor, is cut intentionally as to not present a bias on one side due to placement of the extractor.
  • Proprietary coating: Our bolt features a coating that reduces wear, increases lubricity, and helps decrease maintenance time.
  • Elongated cam path: The elongated cam path allows the bolt to remain locked in battery for a slightly longer duration of time maximizing the efficiency of the gas system and presenting less blow back to the shooter.
  • More gas ejection ports: The enhanced carrier features additional gas ejection ports to quickly disperse any excess gas not necessary to the cycle of the weapon system. This feature also reduces gas blow back to the shooter.
  • Reduced surface carrier rails: These rails reduce friction on the upper receiver, improve lubricity by allowing oil to travel in between the contact patches and allow a gap for debris to move away from building up on the carrier body.

Are LMT Defense barrels CHF (Cold Hammer Forged)?

No, LMT barrels are not cold hammer forged. Commonly confused with CHF, is our cryogenic stress relieving process. This is done on all barrels, both cromoly and stainless.

What is the life expectancy of LMT Defense barrels?

There is no set barrel life or round count for our barrels. Heat is the enemy of steel. Depending on how hot you get your barrel, and for how long that temperature is sustained, can have great affect the life of a barrel. Barrel material like stainless steel and chromoly with a chrome lining are affected differently. The last factor that can affect barrel life is maintenance or care and bullet type. Maintaining your equipment is crucial to longevity, the bore of a rifle is no exception. Different types of bullets and jackets interact differently with the rifling, make sure to use proper maintenance for your particular ammo.

 

762X51 Nato or 308 Win in my MWS?

Good news! You can shoot both NATO 762 and commercial grade 308 Win through your MWS rifle. The commercial spec ammo actually runs slightly higher pressures over the 7.62X51. However we build our barrels to withstand greater pressure than either calibers produce. However we do NOT recommend use of hand loaded ammo in either caliber.

What upper receivers and barrels are compatible?

MRP (5.56/.223) and MWS (7.62/.308) platforms are independent of one another.  While all MWS barrels are compatible with that platform, the MRP hosts two upper receiver lengths, each with their own capabilities.  HERE is a chart displaying upper/barrel compatibility.

What wrench/settings are used to change an MRP/MWS barrel?

MRP/MWS locking screws use a T-30 head and should be torqued to 140 in/lbs for optimum performance.  The LMT Torque Wrench is designed to this exact specification.  Need a tutorial?  Check out our video on YouTube!
