SSAA TV visits the Lithgow Small Arms Factory Museum - an outing which will appeal to anyone with an interest in firearms or Australian military history. The factory itself was established in Lithgow, New South Wales, in 1912 to supply Lee-Enfield .303 rifles, Vickers and Bren machine-guns, L1A1 SLR rifles and other small arms to Australia’s defence forces. The factory’s administration block built in 1962 still remains and is now home to the Lithgow Small Arms Factory Museum, showcasing the technological and innovative side of Australian firearms manufacturing.
