LMT's March 2021 Q&A & Discussion on DMR and the MRP
On March 1, 2021 LMT LIVE streamed more Q1 updates. It was the first video update since they were flagged by #bigbrother. They can no longer showcase g.u.n.s. in the video itself...but they are still dedicated to answering your questions (except order updates).
Focusing on their MRP and DMR - where you can "quickly change the attitude of your rifle".
They address viewers questions, such as :
What do you lose when using a suppressor?
What was the reason behind leaving the gas block exposed rather than having it protected by the rail?
Has LMT considered making a free floating rail for the normal M4 uppers and barrels?
Why do the mrp quad rails have small threaded holes everywhere?
Piston .308 barrels this year?
Com bloc calibers for MRP? 7.62x39 and 5.45x39?
If you would have to chose on barrel length/system for it all?
Proper general purpose build for medium to cqb distance?
Any thoughts/experience on the A5 system on the MRP?
MLC vs CQB upper, any preferences/ thoughts? Especially regarding girth and structural rigidity?
As a reminder, LMT is shipping orders, however they are still experiencing significant delays.
LMT is NOT providing updates on any open/delayed orders for the remainder of 2021! Please do not email asking for individual order updates as we intend to keep everyone updated as we receive new information to share.
If you are someone who received your backlogged LMT order, or received an order earlier than expected - congratulations! We are stoked that the needle is starting to move on LMT's fulfillment.
For the rest of us who continue to wait:
Our previous updates still apply.
LMT is not providing updates beyond their last official release. We can not provide any other information than we have diligently released.
You will be notified that your order has been shipped when you receive a UPS tracking email.
In order to reduce the stress on our customers regarding delays, we have preemptively moved most allocation dates out to either late Q2 or early Q3.
All “Special Order” items will be submitted to LMT once they re-open the ordering window for 2021. If you place a “Special Order” you will receive an estimated shipping date once your order is processed by LMT. We do not have an estimate for when the ordering window will reopen.
Regarding “Allocated” & "Special Order" dates, there still seems to be some confusion. The dates provided are the estimated production/shipping dates provided to us by LMT. These dates are subject to change by LMT (we have no control or influence on date changes nor delays) . Cancellations made in response to delays and date changes are subject to cancelation fees.
