Usually I would not say I “NEED” another receiver set but thanks to LANTAC leaking pics of their new LA-SF15 Forged Upper and Lower set I can confirm…I do actually need another receiver set! 🙂 Knowing LANTAC as well as I do, the LA-SF15 set is sure to be about as high quality as a forged receiver set gets. No word yet on actual specifics or features but you know I’ll be pestering them for the details this week for sure. Until then, take a look at the pics of the new LA-SF15 Forged Upper and Lower set below.

We received an email from UCWRG (Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group) the other day that had some good intel in it and wanted to share it with anyone who didn’t receive the email as well.
If you resisted the urge to immediately click over and buy one of the UCWRG Raptor charging handles that were back in-stock and kept reading they included some good info on what changes are going on at UCWRG right now. New UCWRG BCGs will be released soon and they continue to have an issue with getting forgings that are up to their high quality standards.
If you kept reading past that you get to what we all are interested in…UCWRG BILLET!! I am fortunate to own one of the very first UCWRG billet ambi lowers ever made and love it (its featured in a lot of my SBR photos). UCWRG has never been able to keep up with demand for their products but it appears they may have figured out some of their production dilemmas as they are about to release a NEW billet lower and drumroll….billet upper. Photos and details below.
We have a new billet lower design complete and we’re excited to get them out there. While we’d like to have receivers ready before the election, we’re pushing to have them finished before Christmas. Timelines can change, especially after November. Like our first billet design these will include the ADAC for right side bolt catch. We’ve made a few improvements to this lower; the magwell bevel is deeper and by popular request we’ve added a tension screw. You might also notice we’ve switched the logo from the 3D version to our standard deep laser engraved umbrella. These lower receivers still feature our unique magwell geometry and are WEDM cut for an even smoother finish. Billet uppers will follow soon after the lowers are released to complete the pair.
So, if you’ve wanted to get on the UCWRG train, your chance might be coming sooner than you realize. I hope this means good things going forward for UCWRG and they do make a phenomenal product. Getting it out to the consumers is the key. You can check out all of the UCWRG products at www.UCWRG.com.
The Rebel Arms Type R lower is not your standard forged lower receiver. The Type R lower has some features that are typically found on billet lower receivers such as a Captured Takedown Pin, Upper/Lower Tensioning Screw and one of my favorite features…a Threaded Bolt Catch Pin. If you’re looking for a nice lower to start a new build with, this is definitely one to take a look at. Rebel Arms is offering these lowers with FreeShipping, no code is needed at check out.
Our lower is the perfect platform to build your lower receiver for your mission specific applications. Our receivers are machined from a 7075 T6 aluminum alloy forging for reliable performance and outstanding durability. Our stripped receivers are precision machined to ensure installation of mil-spec aftermarket components. Mil-spec hard anodized finish adds strength and a superior abrasion-resistant surface.
Bullet Markings for Safe, Semi and Auto on both sides of the receiver. The receiver is finished off with a deep engraving of our logo.
Our Stipped Lower Reveiver come with…
1. Easy to install Set Screw Bolt Catch Pin (Pin Included)
2. Captured Takedown Pin (Set Screw Included)
3. Upper/Lower Receiver Nylon tipped tensioning set screw (Screw included)

I just happened to run across these new “Billet 4o” receiver sets by ATX Armory yesterday and man they are pretty sweet looking. Apparently the name “Billet 40” comes from all of the 4o degree angles on the receivers. There literally isn’t a square inch area that doesn’t have some neat detail work done to it. Even the underside of the trigger guard looks sick. Most of the machining appears to be in an effort to lower the weight of the receivers which combined come in at just under 1 pound. The receiver set is also compatible with the Battle Arms and Rainier Arms short throw ambi safeties. Check out the pics and details below.
ATX Armory has built the finest receiver set money can buy without compromise to quality! Our model “Billet 40” gets its name from the 40 degree angles featured throughout the design, which took us nearly a year to perfect.
– Precision CNC from Aerospace Aluminum Billet 7075-T6
– Integrated Trigger Guard with Custom Details
– Forward Assist (Not found on similar high end receiver sets)
– Multi Cal Markings for Various Build Types
– Upper/Lower Tension Screw Setup (No Slop in this set so not Needed but Machined)
– Edges have been De-Burred for Clean Smooth Finish
– Compatible with Mil Standard AR Lower/Upper Receiver Parts
– High Quality Hard Coat Type III Anodized Finish
– Weighs 15.2 oz.
If you’re in the market for a unique looking billet receiver set for your next build, definitely give these a look. I know I might be doing that myself. Check them out at www.ATXArmory.com.
About 2 weeks ago I ordered some Cerro Forge 80 Percent lower receivers from a company called Right To Bear Arms and Supply. With the uncertainty of future gun legislation, 80% lowers are a great item to have on hand but are super hard to find in-stock. The 80% lowers not only shipped the next day but they showed up at my house just a few days later. I had never purchased anything from them before but after an outstanding experience I am putting them on my “Will do business with again” list. Unfortunately, as soon as I went to write up a quick post about my experience and tell you where to get some 80% lowers…they were sold out. However, they just got a re-stock and now have Cerro Forge 80% lower receivers in-stock again and they are just $49.99 a piece.
The 80% AR-15 Lower Receiver is NOT an FFL item. These units are forged by Cerro, which produces the forgings for companies such as Colt, Spikes Tactical Daniel Defense, DPMS and other major manufacturers. No FFL is required for transfer and the only machining needed is to finish out the trigger and safety well on the lower. The ATF classifies these units as non-firearms. No registration required. These units are “finished in the white”, tumbled and are ready for either Anodizing or Cerakote finishing.
80% Lower Specs:
- 80% Machined (Just needs trigger and safety well machined)
- 7075 Aluminum
- T6 Heat Treated
- Magwells are flared and broached.
- Cerro Forge (KeyHole)
If you’re looking for a great deal on 80% lowers from a trustworthy source, head on over to www.RightToBear.com and snag a few of these before they are sold out again.
If you’ve been watching any news coverage regarding gun control legislation the favorite term used is “Assault Weapon” or “Assault Rifle”, and both terms have nothing to do with the AR-15. Many people, even AR owners think that the “AR” in AR-15 refers to the term “Assault Rifle” but it actually refers to “Armalite Rifle”. To poke fun at this commonly misused term, Texas Black Rifle Company has introduced their new “A Salt Rifle” forged lower with a comical roll mark and selector markings. Check out the images and details below. The website says this is a limited run so snag one quick if you’re interested.
TBRC A Salt Rifle Lower Receiver
We are now manufacturing an AR15 A Salt Rifle lower receiver! These are going to be a very limited run so get them while you can! The A Salt Rifle Multi Caliber Lower Receiver is made to Military Standards from high quality 7075 T6 aluminum forgings, finished with True Type III Hard Anodizing with proper STANAG magazine dimensions. It’s time you build yourself one of those A Salt Rifles the crazy Liberals keep spouting off about. Now, don’t forget, regardless of what the Libtards say, you can’t just buy this A Salt Rifle online and have it sent to your house. You must have your A Salt Rifle sent to the gun store of your choice. Please read below for more details and order your A Salt Rifle NOW!
The TBRC “A Salt Rifle” forged lower is available at www.TBRCi.com
Juggernaut Tactical just introduced their new Ultimate Jig. There are tons of jigs out there for machining 80% lower receivers. For the most part all of them are specifically for either the AR-15 or AR-1o lowers and not both. The new Ultimate Jig sets itself apart by accommodating both AR-15 AND AR-1o lower receivers from not just Juggernaut Tactical but also most lowers available on the market. It also has Press Fit Stainless Steel Drill Bushings, an alignment tool to keep your lower in the perfect spot and a depth gauge for the drill bits.
After considering everybody’s feedback regarding jigs, we were able to develop our patent pending Ultimate Jig. With this jig, you are now able to build both AR-10 and AR-15 80% lowers. Our alignment tool that ensures the pocket is always centered in combination with our oversized top plates allows for very smooth and consistent finishing. Pair that with our press fit stainless steel drill bushings and included depth gauge, you will have yourself the perfect tool to finish any top-tier AR rifle. The only thing necessary to get your project going is a drill press or a hand drill and router; everything else provided in your Ultimate Jig Kit.
– 17-4 Stainless Steel Drill Bushings
– Patented alignment tool with light
– Depth gage for quickly setting tool length
– CNC-machined from solid aerospace billet aluminum
– Laser-etched with Right/Left markings and drill hole sizes for convenience
– Individually replaceable plates
– Type III hard coat anodized
– Optional high quality tooling package includes all bits required to finish your AR-15 or AR-10 lower. These are the same bits we use in our commercial CNC machines at the Juggernaut Tactical factory
– If instructions are properly followed, the jig kit can be used to finish up to 25 lowers, or more
– Made in the USA
– PATENT PENDING
Tooling package comes with:
– 1 ea. 0.375″ Cobalt Drill
– 1 ea. 0.3125″ Cobalt Drill
– 1 ea. 0.156″ Cobalt Drill
– 1 ea. 5/16″ Carbide Endmill
Overall this seems to be a very well thought out machining jig. The fact that it works for both AR-15 and AR-10 80% lowers is pretty awesome. Being that it works with both AR-15 and AR-10 lowers I was expecting to see a huge price tag on it but was very happy to see it is priced right in line or less than many of the comparable machining jigs on the market that only work with one or the other. If you’re an 80% DIY’er you definitely need to at least give the new Juggernaut Tactical Ultimate Jig a look.
The Ultimate Jig can be purchased directly from Juggernaut Tactical at www.JTactical.com.
Seems like Retro ARs or Clones are all the rage lately. TROY has introduced a few retro models, Colt announced at the NRA Annual Meeting earlier this month that they will be bringing back a limited production run of some of their most iconic rifles and now it looks like Brownells will also be dedicating some effort towards bringing quality retro components to market as well. Listed below are the first of many offerings from Brownells with more becoming available in the near future.
XM177 Flash Hider & Grenade Ring
The Brownells XM177 Flash Hider & Grenade Ring is the appropriate reproduction piece for your Retro carbine build. This flash hider mirrors the original device’s exterior dimensions, as well as flash hider cuts and grenade ring. The XM177 Flash Hider fits 1/2-28 threads, is machined from 8620L steel and has a black oxide finish. Flash Hider length is 4.335″ and with the grenade ring, bring the total length to 4.45″.
This is the proper muzzle device for the following reproduction builds:
– XM177 or Colt Model 610
– XM177E1 or Colt Model 609
– Colt Model 619/620
– XM177E2 or Colt Model 629
– Colt Model 630 or USAF GAU-5A
– Colt Model 639
– Colt Model 649 or USAF GAU-5A/A
Designed in conjunction with Nodak Spud, the Brownells M16A1 Upper Receiver matches the features of the original M16A1 Receiver. Perfect for a “Retro” or reproduction build, these uppers precisely mirror the original profile. This match is only possible by utilizing forgings with the proper profile built-in.
Features specific to the Brownells M16A1 Upper Receiver are the original A1 profile, with no shell deflector, A1 rear sight housing and proper carry handle contours. The upper starts off as a 7075 T6 aluminum forging, then is machined to mil-spec dimensions. Once machined, the upper is finished with a matte black hard anodized finish. This finish matches most modern lowers found on the market today, as well as the Brownells BRN-16A1 Lower Receiver sold separately. Upper receiver does NOT have M4 feedramps.
Standard AR-15 components will work perfectly with this upper.
This upper is the proper receiver for the following reproduction builds:
– Model 607
– Model 609 (XM177E1)
– Model 619
– Model 629 (XM177E2)
– Model 639
– Model 651
– Model 653
– Upper is not compatible with Anderson Mfg Lower Receivers due to rear takedown lug depth.
Please note, Nodak Spud does not machine these receivers. Only the forgings are sourced from Nodak Spud. Please contact Brownells with any inquiries or concerns.
AR-15 M16A1 Lower Receiver
Designed in conjunction with Nodak Spud, the BRN-16A1 Lower Receiver matches the features of the original M16A1 Receiver. Perfect for a “Retro” or reproduction build, these lowers precisely mirror the original profile.
Features specific to the BRN-16A1 Lower Receiver are the proper M16A1 front takedown lug profile, and profile surrounding the receiver extension. Most forged lower receivers produced today feature “A2” profiles, which are incorrect for M16A1 reproduction builds. The lower starts off as a 7075 T6 aluminum forging, then is machined to mil-spec dimensions. Once machined, the lower is finished with a matte black hard anodized finish. This finish matches modern uppers found on the market today, as well as the Brownells M16A1 Upper Receiver sold separately.
Standard AR-15 components will work perfectly with this lower.
Simple, engraved markings on the lower include:
– Model: BRN-16A1
– Cal: 5.56mm
– Mfg: Brownells Inc
This lower is the proper receiver for the following reproduction builds:
– Model 619
– Model 629
– Model 630 / GAU-5A
– Model 639
– Model 649 / GAU-5A/A
– Model 651/652
– Model 653/654
– Mk 18 Mod 0
– Mk 12
Please note, Nodak Spud does not machine these receivers. Only the forgings are sourced from Nodak Spud. Please contact Brownells with any inquiries or concerns.
As someone who has never done any Retro/Clone builds but have always wanted to, these definitely interest me and I am excited to see what else Brownells plans on bringing to the market. There’s just something awesome about seeing the history of the AR-15/M16 and its many variations. Good on Brownells for helping us have the ability to create our own clones of those awesome rifles.
