The Lewis Machine & Tool LM7 was in competiton with the  FNH SCAR-17 (Mk17 Mod 0), the H&K model 417, Sabre Defence’s XR-10 and offerings from Knights and Oberland Arms.  When the competition was over, LMT’s rifle was designated as the L129A1.  It has been several decades since MOD has changed rifles for the longer range duties, and the new L129A1 is geared towards the 800 meter ranges being encountered in today’s combat environment.  The AI .338 bolt action replaced and upgraded the AI L96 7.62mm several years ago.  “Sharpshooter” is a completely new role for the British Army.  Quick reaction, rapid follow up shots, long range, harder hitting than 5.56mm is the idea for the L129A1, but the sniper rifle is still a bolt action making it unsuited for CQC environments. 


So, I had to take some pictures yesterday for a school project and I’m actually pretty impressed how they came out. Seeing that they were taken with just an iPhone5…

Recently I had been seeing rifles done in ERDL style cerakotes. Did some searching and figured out that the work is done by Sur-Tac Gear. Really wanting to send my URX 3.1 out to get it coated by these guys!

Tinkering around with my UCWRG Upper and my URX II Handguard. Know exactly what I’m doing for my SBR… Excuse my toe in the bottom left corner. But do not excuse the Christmas stuff because it’s December and I love Christmas time. This is also the best lit part of my house.
