Overview / Initial Impressions of the AREA 53 Billet Lowers

Posted on June 30th, 2015 by ar15news

We were given the chance recently to take a look at a couple of lowers from AREA 53. AREA 53 is a company that I’ve heard of and seen pictures of their products but really wasn’t that familiar with. They primarily focus on billet uppers and lowers including many different models and customization options for their billet lowers. Below I’ve included some pictures of the AREA 53 billet lowers I have that will eventually get built up into complete lowers.

PACKAGING

The packaging for the AREA 53 lowers is very cool. The boxes have the AREA 53 logo on the outside and cutouts for the lowers on the inside. The cutout hugs the lowers very tight to keep them from getting damaged in shipping. The two lowers I have are the AR-15 “El Jefe” and AR-10 “El Capitan – Challenge Coin”.

AR-15

The AR-15 model has a large AREA 53 logo on the right side mag well as well as an ambi bolt release. The finish is very clean and consistent with no sharp edges. It also features different selector markings where instead of machining in the markings they recessed the area around them so the “Auto – Fire – Safe” are raised.

AR-10

The AR-10 model is very similar to the AR-15 model with exception of the larger mag well. The AR-10 model we received is also a different model that gives you a place to install a challenge coin on the right side of the mag well. These can be pretty cool if you have a neat Challenge Coin to put in them. They offer the Challenge Coin model in both AR-15 and AR-10 models. The AR-10 model also features an ambi bolt release as well. The finish on the AR-10 model is equally as nice and the anodizing is nice and consistent.

SPECIAL FEATURES

As mentioned before, both the AR-15 and AR-10 billet lowers from AREA 53 feature an ambi bolt release. The ambi bolt releases come pre-installed and function very smooth. 

AREA 53 Billet Lowers 4

Both lowers also feature a threaded bolt catch pin. The bolt catch pin is notoriously the most annoying roll pin to install on an AR so any time its replaced with a threaded bolt catch pin is a great thing. Another feature not shown is the upper tensioning screw that is present on both models.

AREA 53 Billet Lowers 4

The front of the AREA 53 mag wells have been contoured to give you the ability to use it as a grip for your support hand. It also gives the lowers a nice look as well.

Our initial impressions parallel all of the very positive things we’ve heard from others who have used the AREA 53 billet receivers for their builds. AREA 53 appears to take great care in making sure their lowers look and feel great. A couple of things I would love to see AREA 53 offer are 45 degree selector compatibility and possibly and ambi mag release but the lowers are very capable as is. Pretty soon we’ll get these lowers built up and make sure they function as well as they look which I’m quite sure they will. If you’re interested in using the AREA 53 lowers in your next build, head on over to www.AREA53.com.

Posted on June 16th, 2015 by ar15news

Man, I really need to go on vacation more often! Not for the obvious reasons but because all the good stuff happens when I’m out of town. For instance, SI-Defense released their new 5.56 AMBI Billet Receiver Sets. If you follow AR15NEWS on Instagram or Facebook you’ve no doubt seen our .308 rifle we built using a set of SI-Defense .308 AMBI receivers which have their mirrored ambi controls. After months of use with the .308 set I can personally tell you they are amazing and now you can actually get your hands on the long awaited .223/5.56 set with the exact same mirrored ambi controls. 

SIDefense 5.56 Ambi Set 1

SIDefense 5.56 Ambi Set 2

I’m a huge fan of Ambi Controls on my AR’s and the SI-Defense .308 and 5.56 receivers take that to the next level. Having the exact same controls, that work exactly the same, in the exact same place on your lower makes it very intuitive and very fast to get accustomed to. These receivers even have ambi takedown and pivot pins that can be installed facing in either direction giving you a truly ambi experience. 

If this sounds like what you’re looking for, head on over to www.SI-Defense.com and get your order in on the new 5.56 AMBI billet sets.

Alamo Four Star Announces the Cowl Induction Break (CIB)

Posted on June 11th, 2015 by ar15news

June 9th, 2015 – Lubbock Texas – Lubbock Texas – Alamo Four Star is pleased to announce the release of the Cowl Induction Brake (CIB). The CIB CNC cross milled port design reduces recoil by over 50% while minimizing the sound directed back at the shooter.

Alamo Four Star CIB brake 1

The CIB was developed as better way to mitigate the recoil of large caliber rifles. Founder Mark Deros realized a need to revisit the industry standard muzzle brake design when he was shooting his .338 Lapua and experiencing substantial recoil with a standard factory brake. This led Mark to find the most effective way to redirect the escaping gas pressure and put that energy to work in order to more effectively reduce recoil and manage muzzle rise. This reduction was made possible by redesigning the internal and external geometry of the traditional brake to increase the efficiency of the flow of gasses.

Alamo Four Star CIB brake 2

“I realized after shooting my .338 Lapua for a while I realized that there had to be a better solution than receiving an ‘ass whipping’ with the factory muzzle brake.” said Mark Deros CEO of Alamo Four Star. “With 18,000 lbs of pressure being released from that muzzle, that’s a lot of energy available to be exploited. The CIB uses that energy to the shooters advantage creating a more enjoyable shooting experience and faster follow up shots.”

The CIB is available in 223/5.56, 6mm, 6.5mm, .30cal, and .338 Lapua in both black and stainless steel. MSRP on the CIB is $169
