Last week the guys over at Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group started releasing some teaser pictures of their coming soon billet lower receiver. The first few pictures were just of the SLA prototypes which is just a 3D Printed Model. Well, the response was pretty overwhelming so they continued and finally showed the receiver in “the white” or bare metal with no anodizing. Aside from the obvious visual enhancements of this billet lower such as the integrated Winter Trigger Guard and Flared Magwell, there are a couple of key features that I noticed in the pictures that will totally set this receiver apart from other similar units on the market. First and foremost, UCWRG is borrowing the A-DAC technology from AXTS Weapon Systems which incorporates an Ambi Bolt Hold into the function of the Mag Release. Second, this lower will also be one of only a handful of lowers on the market that is compatible with the Battle Arms Development 45 Degree Short Throw ambi safety selectors.
The new Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group billet lowers will go into production mid January 2013 which is also when the pricing will be announced. It looks like this beast is going to pretty awesome and I for one can’t wait to buy my own. Check out the rest of the pictures below. Don’t forget that these pics show prototype lowers. The finished product will not have the machining marks and will be anodized as well.
