QC10 GSF Lowers w/LPK and Matched Receiver Sets On Sale

Posted on April 13th, 2016 by ar15news

Quarter Circle 10 has been adding tons of new products to their lineup lately and from what I understand this is just the beginning. Today they added two more options. First is the option of purchasing their GSF (Glock Small Frame) lower with a standard LPK (lower parts kit) at a discounted price. Second is the ability to purchase a matched receiver set which includes the GSF (Glock Small Frame) lower and their new Pistol Caliber MUR upper which was introduced a few weeks ago. This is one step closer to QC10 offering complete uppers, lowers and Rifle/Pistol builds. 

Both of these new options are currently being offered at a 10% discount but will return to normal pricing this Friday, April 15th. If you’re looking to start your next Pistol Caliber AR, this is a great deal to jump in on.

Sneak Peek!! Next Level Armament ELITE AR-15 Receiver Set

Posted on February 9th, 2016 by ar15news

Big thanks to Next Level Armament who shot me a sneak peek at their new ELITE AR-15 receiver set yesterday. The ELITE receiver set is a forged receiver set that has had material removed wherever possible without reducing the strength of the receiver. As you can see in the photos below they did not “skeletonize” the lower but just removed excess material creating recessed areas around important features of the lower. This won’t result in a massive amount of weight savings but there will be some and looks pretty awesome too. Although you can’t see it in this photos, the upper receiver has also received the same treatment as they have machined out the center of the 12 o’clock rail section and added their logo on the top at the charging handle opening.

While a receiver set like this from some other companies would break the bank, Next Level Armament will be offering these as matched sets for just $225. I was told they will have a few hundred back from anodizing and ready to ship by Wednesday (2-17-16) of next week. This is a great option for anyone looking for something a bit different than the run of the mill forged receiver set without paying the big bucks for a billet set.

F-1 Firearms had some really sweet looking rifles in their SHOT Show booth. Many of the rifles they showcased featured finishes by some of the best Cerakote guys in the business such as BlownDeadLine (BDL Custom Finish). The BDR-15 3G rifles really stood out with their cool skeletonized receivers and rails.
