From the .303 and SLR to today’s Austeyr SA2 and the EF88, Lithgow represents a unique heritage – the home of small arms in Australia.
The Lithgow Arms team includes local experts plus people with international experience from some of the world’s most renowned arms manufacturers, as well as former military personnel.
All this means the team now designs new Australian weapons for military and civilian markets – along with the LA101 CrossOver, the innovative EF88 rifle is being developed for the Australian Defence Force, while the export F90 version has captured attention around the world.
At Lithgow Arms we’re proud of our heritage and people. For over 110 years the men and women of Lithgow have supported the factory, the production of small arms, and the Australian Defence Force at home and abroad. Lithgow Arms employs over 130 full time personnel across all trades and backgrounds – and everyone takes enormous pride in producing quality work. Many of our workforce are former military members, and some continue to serve in a reserve capacity.
