Late last year we wrote an article about the new 7.62 NATO L129A1. During a visit to the Lewis Machine & Tool booth at SHOT Show I was able to examine a production example of the new L129A1 recently adopted by the UK Army for their small unit designated marksmen. This photo was recently published by Strike Hold!.
The large Trijicon sight is designed to offer a wide field of view and gather lots of ambient light and features a mini red dot back up as well as a simple reticle pattern. Pictured is a folding fore-grip from Cadex Defence (pictured is the old style) but was not on the rifle displayed in the LMT booth at SHOT Show. The weapon also features KAC BUIS, Magpul PRS stock, and Harris bipod.
