Last year we talked a little about LWRC’s 45 ACP caliber submachine gun, dubbed the SMG-45. The gun was still in the prototype phase and LWRC didn’t even know if it was going to be produced at all, let alone for the civilian market. One year later and the production version was sitting on the shelf at SHOT Show, and LWRC has confirmed that they will indeed be producing a semi-auto civilian version . . .
…eventually. According to the reps, the law enforcement orders that have come in will take precedent as they ramp up production. But a semi-auto version is on the drawing board, and civilian sales will eventually take place. So start saving your pennies!
