EXCLUSIVE! First gallery of Lithgow’s LA101 CrossOver

Sporting Shooter has obtained exclusive first photos of the all-new Lithgow Arms LA101 CrossOver rifle, complete with close-ups of its “Made in Australia” stamping and other details.

The photos show the prototype rimfire model, the same rifle that’s now being boxed up and shipped to Melbourne for this weekend’s SHOT Expo, where it will make its public debut.

According to Lithgow Arms public affairs advisor Julian Elliot, the company’s website will go live tonight with more information on the rifle, which was developed here in Australia and will be made in the historic Lithgow Arms factory in NSW.
