FightLite Releases Herring Model 2024 Lever-Action Rifle

FightLite Industries has been producing advanced rifle and handgun components and complete units for the military and law enforcement agencies since 1997. In 2022, FightLite announced its first foray into lever-action rifles with the Herring. After a two-year wait, the Model 2024 Herring modular lever gun is coming off the production line.

Named for founder and CEO Geoffrey Herring, the Model 2024 is a modern take on the classic lever action design. It mates an enlarged lever loop with an AR-15-style rotating bolt that feeds from conventional AR magazines. This arrangement is stronger than a traditional rear-locking lever action design and does not require flat-nosed bullets for safe feeding and function. The upper receiver has a generous section of Picatinny rail running along the sighting plane from the rear of the anodized aluminum upper receiver to the end of the M-Lok handguard.

The FightLite Herring 2024 is available as either a full-length rifle with a fixed semi-pistol grip buttstock or as a Mare’s leg-like pistol. The rifle comes equipped with a 16.25-inch barrel that is threaded for 5/8×24-inch accessories. The pistol, named the Herring Bandito, has an abbreviated M-Lok handguard and a 7.25-inch barrel with 1/2×28-inch threads. The pistol is available only in 5.56x45mm NATO with a 1:7 right-hand twist. The rifle is available in either 5.56 NATO, .223 Wylde, or .300 Blackout. Both models come in either black, FDE, or OD Green. The Herring rifle has an MSRP of $1699, while the Bandito is priced at $1899. Check out these worthy additions to the growing modern lever action market.
