LMT New Zealand Reference Rifle


LMT New Zealand Reference Rifle

This is the closest you can get to the true New Zealand MARS-L rifle. This semi auto reference rifle includes true requirement features, such as:

  • LMT® metric flip-up sights
  • Bayonet lug
  • Surefire Warcomp flash hider
  • Enhanced trigger guard
  • QD receiver end plate
  • Ambidextrous charging handle
  • MARS-L ambidextrous lower receiver

This is the latest and best version of a modern M4.

LMT® built this LMT New Zealand Reference Rifle with its patented Monolithic Rail Platform, the only true monolithic rail platform, milled from a single high-grade aluminum forging. Two locking bolts on the side of the receiver lock the barrel extension in place. MRP technology engages the barrel extension for a full 360 degrees and allows the barrel to be removed in seconds while minimizing point of impact shift. One receiver can support numerous barrels of varying length, material, and caliber.


  • CQB Upper Receiver | Ambidextrous Charging Handle |
  • S-A Bolt Carrier Group | MARS-L Lower Receiver |

The CQB upper receiver has a 16.25-inch Picatinny top rail, while providing eight inches of rail on the left and right, and 7 inches of rail on the bottom. Consequently, the one-piece design offers the best platform for accuracy and durability.

Monolithic rail platform barrels use a low profile gas block with straight gas tube; furthermore, they have a proprietary coating and are cryogenically treated for long term durability.

The MARS®-L ambidextrous lower receiver features our EDM machined two-stage trigger, winter trigger guard, endplate with QD swivel point, LMT® ergonomic textured grip, and SOPMOD stock. The ambidextrous features include bolt catch and release, magazine catch, and safety selector. As with all LMT® lower receivers, the extension tube is coated with dry film lubricant.

This weapon system comes complete with metric flip-up sights, tactical two point sling, 3 rail panel covers, Magpul windowed 5.56 30rd magazine, torque wrench, and owner’s manual.

Only available to Federal Firearms Licensed Dealers.
