posted on January 30, 2018

Manufactured in Australia by Lithgow Arms and imported to the United States by Legacy Sports International, the new long range, precision LA105 rifle has been nicknamed the "Woomera" (an Aboriginal word for "spear thrower"). 
   
Fitted with a heavy barrel and an adjustable precision rifle stock, the LA105 was developed with the advice of Australian and U.S. military snipers in order to deliver a customizable fit and the features long range shooters are looking for. Choose from .308 Win or 6.5 Creedmoor models with KRG Tactical stocks in black or flat dark earth Cerakote finishes.

The bolt-action receiver is topped with a Picatinny rail for mounting optics. The threaded 24" barrels are fitted with 3-chamber muzzle brakes to manage felt recoil. Other features include and adjustable recoil pad, an overmolded cheek piece with height adjustments, MLOK & KRG compatible accessory slots and a 10-round magazine. Suggested Retail: TBA. American Rifleman’s Brian Sheetz had a chance to fire it at Industry Day at the Range during SHOT Show 2018. See the video here, and for more, visit legacysports.com
