POTD: The LMT MARS-L in New Zealand


    Photo Of The Day and it’s time for a visit to New Zealand. Apart from the soldiers, the “star” here is the LMT MARS-L produced by Lewis Machine & Tool Company. Note the Monolithic Rail Platform. The rifle now serves as the standard service rifle of the New Zealand Army. It’s available in two different barrel lengths, but in 5.56mm only. MARS-L is an abbreviation for Modular Ambidextrous Rifle System – Light. Most have the Trijicon ACOG optic with an RMR red dot on top.

    Caption from the New Zealand Army:

    Quiet, coordinated, and deadly our soldiers are trained in all conditions they may encounter in the field. From dense and muddy, to dry and sparse – we are trained and equipped to operate anywhere, at any time.
