Over the past years many companies have popped up and started making AR style rifles but none has met the standards and quality of the LMT Defense line up of rifles. These rifles provide match grade accuracy the same as any bolt action long range rifle but in small semi-auto rifle form. Their striving to put the best rifle out there has allowed me to personally set records with their rifles by shooting off the tripod with a hog saddle to an IPSC target at 2260 yards for multiple hits. The same rifle allowed me to get a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th round hit at over a mile when the rifle was still brand new. My 12 year old son would then go on to make a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round hit at 1200 meters off the same tripod. --a record for a 12 year old.
