LMT Defense is bringing a civilian copy of the Estonian contract rifles to the US market for civilian purchase as the Estonian Reference Rifle.
TFB first reported LMT’s selection by the Estonian military back in December 2018, the contract award was confirmed by LMT in May 2019 and the contract was officially signed in August 2019. The initial contract covers 16,000 rifles in a mix of 5.56×45 and 7.62×51 rifles. The 5.56x45mm rifles have been ordered in two barrel lengths: a 12-inch barrel for use by Estonia’s special forces units and a standard 14.3-inch length barrel for use by both the Estonian military, police and border officers.
All of the rifles have LMT’s monolithic uppers, new 2-stage triggers (which can be returned to safe with the hammer down), a 2-position gas system and LMT’s own backup iron sights. The Estonian military has requested a particular setup for the rifles including optics and suppressors. The 5.56 rifles are shipping with a Holosun 503 red dot sight and their HMX3 3x magnifier. The 7.62 DMR rifles will ship with a Vortex Razor 1-6 on a Vortex mount.
