Next Level Arms, a company I am proud to say is local to me here in Michigan, is getting ready to release a really nice looking light weight AR-15 billet receiver set. The NLX15 billet receiver set will weigh just 15 ounces! That’s just under a pound for both upper and lower combined.
As you can see in the images below there is quite a bit of material removed in places that will not effect the integrity of the receiver and without any skeletonized areas aside from the shell deflector. Another thing to note from the following photo….the forward assist has been moved a bit further forward to give a little more clearance for lefties using ambi charging handles such as the NLX Ambi Charging Handle.
From what I’ve been told, the new NLX FIFTEEN billet receiver sets will be available early January 2017. I now that sounds like “Next Year” but its really only a couple weeks away. I have not heard anything on price yet but I’ll be sure to update this post as soon as I have that information. Until then, check out all that Next Level Arms offers at www.NextLevelArms.com.
