Lithgow USA has been dead silent on this. Anxiously awaiting its arrival to the US market. Anybody have good news or recent info?

At least they're not following the DT marketing model...

I had sent a E Mail asking if listed weights are with or without the magazine.  Here was my reply:

"The weight listed is with a magazine. We are expecting to ship by the end of September or early October."

I received this E Mail reply on Aug. 19th.

Man that is the first I've seen of this that's a awesome looking weapon. What is the damage to the wallet on this?


45acp... turning human garbage into useful fertilizer since 1911

Manticore Arms asked yesterday at Bullpup Shoot 2017

"Should be shipping to dealers and the public in November 2017 according to their guys"

I honestly don't like how these look.

Is that an ambi bolt release behind the magazine well and an ambi mag release on the front of the cutlass guard? Also, can't tell if those are AR15 PMAGs or the AUS type. Anybody know?

I like the new slimmer butt stock redesign, less AUGish than the original F90/Atrax and more of it's own unique individual look. The redesign of the butt stock is most likely what is holding up the U.S. models release.

I agree--this redesign looks phenomenal. Very sci-fi/futuristic.

And, then there's the problem of unwitting shooters with a big nose ---

Crickets...winter is coming and I'm losing interest. Not sure the marketing strategy here or if there are any real plans for this rifle to hit the US market.  Should the new 7.62 tavor hit before this rifle, sorry Lithgow but you're going to the waaaaaaay back of the line.

I like what I saw in the video - I love my AUG, but the redesigned stock is the only thing that might make me excited to go with AR/NATO mags...looks very well done and maybe it will eventually kick Steyr in the ass to get off of theirs..

Progress! Looks like a new edition has been added to the ATRAX lineup on Lithgow's website http://www.lithgowarms.com/f90mbr/

Guess they are going the MDR route and taking preorders (although no pre-payment) without any timeline or communication plan.  I suppose it's time to move on.

Lets hope that means they're closer to launch. They said they it would be Oct-Nov

I can't figure out what your issue is. How is this any different than a "be notified when in stock" alert?

Regardless, I don't think this is the gun for you.
