LWRCI released its first pistol-caliber firearm in 2019, the SMG-45, and the company had a sample at SHOT Show 2020. This SMG model combines the company’s experience on the AR platform with an innovative delayed-blowback/short-recoil operating system that delivers a unique PCC shooting experience.

“We listened closely to shooters, operators, and customers throughout the development of this exciting new platform for LWRCI,” said David Ridley, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “The SMG is truly a ‘Step-Up’ pistol-caliber carbine that offers our customers innovative features and comfortable ergonomics in a compact package.”

Built from the ground up around U.S.-manufactured UMP magazines, the SMG-45 is a completely new PCC in .45 ACP that features many of the same controls and performance attributes found in LWRCI's gas-piston AR lineup.
