The Firearms Blog are reporting that Wedgetail Industries has started manufacturing in Australia semi-automatic AR-15s for domestic sale. Named after the Aussie wedgetailed eagle, they are making the critical components for the AR-15 including, but not limited to:
- Bolt Carrier
- Trigger Group
- Upper Receiver
- & Lower Receiver.
Seeing that the firearms are already very restricted there, Wedgetail are offering the weapon in what the US would classify as “short barrel” and standard rifles. The first offerings include a 10.5″, a 14.5″, and 16″ carbine. All weapons are 100% ambidextrous, using an ambi charging handle, Norgon ambi-catch, and a Teal Blue Bravo PDQ style bolt catch/release.
- Replying to the Firearms Blog post - Wedgetail say we should expect to see further developments from them in coming weeks - possibly in them selling new products & hard to find spare parts into the very regulated Australian market.
Rifles in .223" and 300BLK are offered by WEDGETAIL INDUSTRIES who are listed as a private company registered in Tasmania? / Victoria.
This is great news for the Aussies - now having both Lithgow Arms. & Wedgetail making shooting gear inside their borders - so no Import Permits required. Good news.
If anyone can give me more details, - contact information etc. - I'd be happy to post it and support them in any way.https://wedgetailindustries.com/contact/
