SMG .45 Rolls Out | New Product Announcement
In Honor of Independence Day LWRCI Ships It's New PCC.

Cambridge, MD (July 2, 2019) –  One of the most exciting product releases in LWRCI™ company history is finally here. LWRCI™ announces the release of its first pistol-caliber carbine - the SMG-45. This highly-anticipated SMG model combines the company’s experience on the AR platform with an innovative delayed-blowback/short-recoil operating system to deliver a unique pistol-caliber carbine shooting experience.

“We listened closely to shooters, operators, and customers throughout the development of this exciting new platform for LWRCI™,” says 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 US-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 luxury gas-piston AR lineup. LWRCI™’s commitment to craftsmanship and design excellence is clearly evident in the SMG-45: the firearm delivers the high performance that discerning shooters demand alongside the quality and innovation that customers have come to expect from LWRCI™. 

Constructed of advanced aluminum and steel alloys and protected with hard-coat anodizing, ferritic nitrocarburization, and nickel-boron surface treatments, the SMG is built to last. Features on the SMG include a signature fully-ambidextrous lower receiver with AR-style controls for the safety and bolt catch/release, a paddle magazine release, the LWRCI™ Ultra Combat Grip™, and an LWRCI™ Enhanced Fire Control Group™. The upper includes an 8.5” cold- hammer-forged CrMoV steel barrel, LWRCI’s familiar Modular Rail System with LWRCI™ Rail Panels and Hand Stop installed at 3/6/9 o’clock, Magpul MBUS Pro sights, and more.

The launch configuration for the SMG-45 is a pistol equipped with the SB Tactical SBTi folding subgun brace. The SMG-45 ships with two 25-round magazines.

The first shipment of the LWRCI™ SMG-45 Pistol+Brace production models shipped this week to an authorized LWRCI™ Wholesale Distributor or Premier Dealer with the highly anticipated models showing up at retail starting as early as next week.

In honor of Independence Day -the first run of LWRCI SMG .45's shipped this week from LWRC International's Cambridge, Maryland facility.  Consumers can expect to start seeing the highly anticipated firearm showing up at local dealers in the next few weeks.
LWRCI™ SMG introduced new packaging with custom fit foam inserts and 2- 25 Round UMP Magazines. Magazines are US Manufactured and available in lesser round configurations for state or local compliance.

Selling one of my high end 1911s to get an SMG

I like the set-up. I'm confused about something. what confuses me is this; why is it a Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC)? So is it then a short barrelled rifle (SBR) subject to NFA paperwork? It appears to me to be a pistol which is not under NFA paperwork rules. The story starts out with this statement in the header "In Honor of Independence Day LWRCI Ships It's New PCC." Maybe the writer of the article should write a retraction if it is indeed not a PCC /SBR. That all said, I'll get to my true point which is this; 45 ACP isn't what, I'd want such a weapon to be chambered in. I'd much rather .357 Sig for its barrier blindness over 45 ACP. If, I were to use such a platform it would be in a Close Quarter Combat (CQB) situation. I'd prefer a round that is super sonic, and I'd like the higher capacity of the .357 Sig. To each his or her own. Just an opinion.
