Weapons produced by Lewis Machine & Tool Company (LMT), a privately-owned Midwestern maker of elite weaponry, are being used by the Royal Air Force to protect the 2012 Olympics in London, England, against terrorist attacks.

According to a recent Daily Express U.K. article, Royal Air Force soldiers assigned to protect the Olympics have been armed with the LMT L129A1 Sharpshooter rifle, which is highly accurate over long ranges.

“From the beginning, LMT has been proud to assist soldiers and law enforcement officials in protecting our country,” said Monica Sipp, Director of Sales and Marketing for LMT. “We are equally proud that our products are being used to protect the Olympics, an event which fosters global unity.”
