LMT is Making Suppressors Now?! [GunCon 2023]

TFBTV and James Reeves are at Brownells covering GunCon 2023. In this episode, James speaks with his good friend, Joe Hajny of LMT, about LMT’s new suppressor line. Well known as a premium supplier of military and Law Enforcement M4s, AR-15s, AR-10s, and similar carbines, it only makes sense that LMT gets into the suppressor game, making their own line of reasonably priced suppressors designed to package with their carbines and rifles.

[TFB GUNFEST] LMT's Shot Counter Grip Module For Military And LE

Lewis Machine & Tool’s Estonian rifle contract has been news for some time, of which TFB has covered, but the LMT Shot Counter technology that was also rolled out with that rifle hasn’t attracted much attention. One reason for the lack of coverage could be the lack of marketability for non-military and police users. However, during TFB’s GunFest 2021 coverage, Joe from LMT went into further discussion about what the Shot Counter is capable of, which is much more than just round counting. Firearm aficionados should be able to appreciate it even if it’s outside of their budget or needs.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS: A Belt-Fed FN M249S And More

Sitting on Santa’s lap as an adult is a completely different experience from when you were a young kid. Back then you had no money, completely dependent on your parents for any sort of commercially available goods and services. As a grown-up, you have the means and ability to save your cash and (eventually) buy the things you want. So, for me, bending the Big Man’s ear is all about semi-realistic hopes and dreams. I’m not swinging for the fences asking for a transferable MP5, a 10K of ammo or a Dillon Aero minigun. All I want for Christmas is an FN M249S, an H&K MK23 with a KAC suppressor and an LMT M203 40mm grenade launcher. Now that I think about it, my mid-life Christmas list is almost identical to the list I had in elementary school.
