TNW Firearms is an innovative designer and manufacturer of modern and historical firearms, and now they are introducing the lightest production 9 mm semiautomatic carbine available today, the 9 mm LTE, based on its wildly popular Aero Precision Rifle. The new 9 mm LTE gives shooters a portable, easy-to-handle, takedown, semi-automatic firearm is truly a lightweight backpacking, survival or emergency carbine or pistol.
The 9 mm LTE has specifically engineered parts to reduce weight and is not interchangeable with other cartridges. Like all Aero Survival Rifles and Pistols, the new 9 mm LTE is a no-tools-required, rapid take-down gun that is designed to be the last word in portable firepower. Weighing less than 4 pounds, the 9 mm LTE is perfect as a backcountry or emergency survival firearm for outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, ranchers, pilots or anyone who needs a compact, rugged and reliable semi-automatic rifle. The 9 mm LTE will be available as an Aero Survival Rifle, which weighs just 3.9 pounds and also as a pistol which weighs 4.1 pounds with a TNW handguard and an SB Tactical Brace. Like other products in the TNW line, the Aero Survival Rifles and Pistols all use easily available Glock-style magazines.
The manual of arms and appearance of the Aero Survival Rifles and Pistols is similar to an AR-pattern firearm, but are original designs created to be more compact than a similar AR-style gun. Both the upper and lower receiver of these guns is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, and they are both blowback operated for simplicity and reliability.
The MSRP for both is $799. More information is available at tnwfirearms.com.
