Since 1912, Lithgow has proudly supported Australia's soldiers on battlefields around the world.

From Gallipoli, to Afghanistan, Australian troops have carried weapons made in Lithgow into battle.

From the .303 and SLR to today's Austeyr SA2 and the EF88, Lithgow represents a unique heritage - the home of small arms manufacture in Australia.

Originally conceived as a factory to service weapons created elsewhere, over the years Lithgow has evolved into a true small arms designer and manufacturer.

Lithgow Arms supports over 130 full-time employees that include local experts and people with experience gained at some of the world's most renowned arms manufacturers.

Included in these numbers are a range of former military personnel and multi-generational families of workers from nearby communities.

The factory itself relies on support from local regional businesses, be it cleaning services, fabrication or engineering companies as well as other manufacturing businesses - everyone has their role to play helping Lithgow Arms deliver on their customer commitments.

Lithgow Arms produces not only the primary weapon platform for the Australian Defence Force but the world-renowned Crossover series of rifles.

This includes the LA101 (rimfire) and LA102 (centerfire) rifles.

"The Crossover range were designed to be an all-round hunting/varmint/target/spotlighting rifle, with modern tactical styling, exceptional reliability and accuracy that includes a sub-MOA performance guarantee out of the box," a company spokesman said.

"The fit and finish on these guns has to be seen and felt to be appreciated.

"The technology used in their military products has been applied to the civilian line, and it really shows.

"The glass fibre reinforced synthetic stock is made with the same high impact material Lithgow Arms uses in making the Australian Army's service rifle.

"Walnut and timber laminate stocks are also available with all three stocks having been perfectly designed to fit a scope, while maintaining high cheek support."

The LA101 and LA102 Crossovers come in 22LR, 17HMR, 22WMR, 223Rem, 243Win and 308 Win.
