The company also makes the products such as barrels and complete upper receivers as well as a variety of lower receiver parts such as triggers, grips and buffer tubes.

The latest innovation is the Widebody Trigger Guard with Trigger Slot. This replacement for a standard AR trigger guard has a raised platform is another Luth-AR idea that is designed to enhance the performance of your AR.
