    Rumored forever and it's now here. I bet it's a year before us mere mortals can find one in stock

    Figure up what you consider too much and then add 30%.

    $2800? Yikes…

    And that’s before the $200 tax stamp. LMT is cool (although qc issues have been popping up like crazy lately) and something other than blowback is great, it’s just a lot for a 9mm that takes glock mags ya know?

    You nailed it!! Sheesh, I would do the $2800 if it came with the MRO, 6 glock mags, 1K rounds of training ammo, a sling and a rifle case...

    I think I paid $1200 for my MRP upper and $600 for a Defender lower.

    Brownells a few years ago were blowing out 9" MRP Uppers for $800 so with that and a MARS lower, I'm at $1500 for a complete LMT.

    The pricing at $2800 makes no sense.

    I just noticed yesterday that Brownell's no longer lists LMT.

    I'm an LMT Fanboi and I have to admit I'm a little surprised and not particularly excited about this. I'm sure it will be a fine weapon and I'm happy to see that it's not blowback, but at that price it will be in a tough spot in the market.

    Of course, if they have a mil or leo buyer lined up then it should work out well for them. I love that they support the civilian builder market, but that isn't the primary way they pay their bills.

    It does sting a little when you see a company come out with new product when you've got items that have been on backorder for close to a year. I'm noticing that their inventory availability is starting to inch back up. Their Estonian Reference Rifles are moving much slower than I expected, but a $3,200 piston AR isn't for everyone.

    Someone call LMT and inform them they are not Knights. Hell it took 4 months to get the required, should have been included parts for my MARS lower.
