SI-Defense Ambi 223/5.56 Receiver Sets Now Available

Posted on February 23rd, 2015 by ar15news

One of my favorite products that I’ve recently used in a build is the new SI-Defense Ambi .308 billet set. The Mirrored Ambi Controls are seriously the best thing since sliced bread. Of course as soon as they introduced the .308 billet set the #1 question was….when are you releasing the .223/5.56 set? Well, the wait is finally over! SI-Defense Full Ambi .223/5.56 billet sets are now available for purchase on the SI-Defense website. They feature the exact same Mirrored Ambi Controls that the .308 set which includes the same Bolt Catch / Release lever on both sides and the same Magazine Release button on both sides. Craziest part is the set costs less than many of the other billet receivers sets on the market that aren’t even ambi. Take a look at the pics and then head on over to www.SI-Defense.com to put in your order today.

Now Available!! American Defense Mfg UIC Ambi Billet Lower

Posted on February 19th, 2015 by ar15news

American Defense Manufacturing is probably best known for making some really awesome quick detach optic mounts but they really blew people away last year when they introduced their new UIC or Universally Improved Carbine. The UIC was the product of redesigning any aspect of your run of the mill AR that they felt didn’t meet ADM standards to make a rifle that is “Intentionally Superior”. One of the areas that ADM focused a lot of attention to was the lower receiver.

Not only did they want to make the UIC 5.56 lower look good but they also made it function better. The ADM UIC lower is fully ambidextrous with an Ambi Bolt Catch and Bolt Release as well as an Ambi Magazine Release. They also will work with any Ambi Safety Selector including the Short Throw models that are very popular. The mag well of the lower features a familiar design that ADM calls “reinforcing ribs” that not only look pretty sweet but also make the receiver stronger. People have been asking them to offer the UIC lower stripped so they can add it to their current rifle or start a build specifically around the lower so that is what ADM just did. Starting now, you can purchase the ADM UIC billet ambi lower as a stripped lower. Check out the pictures of it and details below then head on over to www.AmericanDefenseManufacturing.com to purchase one for yourself.

ADM UIC Billet Ambi Lower 2ADM UIC Billet Ambi Lower 2

The attractive, billet 7075-T6 lower receiver is outfitted with an ambidextrous magazine release, bolt catch and release, and selector switch.  The magazine well features reinforcing ribs that make the magazine well 40% stronger than mil-spec forged at only ½ an ounce of weight change.  The trigger guard is ready for winter gloves without manipulation. Radii and chamfers throughout make this billet lower a marvel that stretches the capabilities of modern production CNC manufacturing. A 20 degree competition style mag well is concealed in the design, allowing lightning fast magazine changes. A right side bolt catch and release lever is standard for every UIC lower, a feature not found on many comparable industry offerings. An integral adjuster allows the end user to compensate for tolerance between your upper receivers and your favorite lower. The selector pictogram is compatible with 50-90 degree selectors.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 Glock Mag 9mm PDW and Receiver Sets

Posted on February 13th, 2015 by ar15news

Its hard to believe that we are already half way through the month of February but this year is just flying by. I’ve been trying to decide on a good time to introduce you guys to some new products from Angstadt Arms which are due out in April. With as fast as time seems to be flying, if I don’t do it now I might completely miss it. In a very short time, Angstadt Arms will be introducing their new UDP-9 9mm PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) and 9mm Receiver Sets.

angstadt arms 0940 receiver set

The UDP-9 is a 9mm Pistol AR that features the new receiver set which are truly beautiful looking. If you don’t like it in Pistol configuration you can easily submit a Form1 to the ATF to register it as an SBR and slap a stock on it. Probably the most important feature to me is the fact that they are fed by Glock magazines instead of Colt mags. Many people carry a Glock 9mm as their concealed carry option, including myself. Having a Primary and Secondary weapon that both use the same ammunition and feeding source could be a huge plus if its ever needed. With companies such as Magpul and ETS Group making 9mm Glock Mags,  will be more readily available and less expensive to purchase as well. You can read more about the Angstadt Arms UDP-9 9mm PDW below.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 9mm PDW
The UDP-9 redefines the pistol caliber carbine. Designed specifically for urban environments and close quarter combat, the UDP-9 is a compact, personal defense weapon chambered in 9mm and fed with GLOCK® magazines.

Angstadt Arms UDP-9 PDW SBRUDP-9 PDW SBR with an LWRC ultra compact stock and Ergo quad rail

Its compact size makes it ideal for home defense, security detail, law enforcement and anywhere space is at a premium. With models available for both prepared citizens, law enforcement officers and military personnel, the UDP-9 is easily configurable for any application. Available spring of 2015. Patent Pending.

UDP-9 Features

  • 7075-T6 billet aluminum lower and upper receiver with a matte black hard-coat anodized finish

  • Flared magwell for faster reloads, integrated, oversized trigger guard and a threaded bolt catch screw

  • Last round bolt hold open on an empty magazine

  • Slick side upper receiver with appropriately sized ejection port and no froward assist or dust cover

  • 9mm bolt assembly for use with a standard AR-15 hammer. Compatible with both GLOCK and Colt 9mm AR-15’s

  • 6” 9mm barrel in chrome moly with a 1/10 twist, black phosphate finish and A2 style flash suppressor

  • B5 Systems pistol grip

  • ODIN Works 5.5” free float keymod hand guard with continuous top picatinny rail and mounting positions at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock.

  • Weight: Sub 5lbs

  • Length: 21″

I’m really excited about Angstadt Arms’ new UDP-9 PDW and Receiver Sets. I’ve been wanting to either buy or build a 9mm AR for a while now, especially one that uses Glock 9mm Magazines like I carry every day. Not sure if I will buy a receiver set or full UDP-9 PDW but odds are I’ll end up doing something with these when they come out.

From what I can tell pricing will be $479 for an upper and lower billet receiver set, $1,249 for the UDP-9mm PDW Pistol and $1,349 for a UDP-9mm PDW SBR. Look for them to be released some time in April 2015. We will be sure to announce to you guys when they are available as well.

I’ve had my set for a while now and they really work great. The bolt release works just as you imagine, press the lever and it releases the bolt. The mag release is gated to protect agains accidental mag release but can still be actuated by the flat of your trigger finger, etc.

NEW!! SI-Defense Releases Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set

Posted on October 30th, 2014 by ar15news

In the AR world there are lots of partially ambi receiver sets but that typically just means that they have an ambi bolt release lever. To me thats not really an ambi receiver because you’re still multiple other features that aren’t ambi. I know I’m obviously not the first to feel like that and I can guarantee you that is exactly what SI-Defense was thinking when they started designing their new Full Ambi Billet .308 Receiver Set.

One of the first things you’ll notice is that both sides of the lower receiver look exactly the same. The brain trust at SI-Defense did this on purpose to ensure your body gets used to doing the same exact thing whether you’re shooting with your right or left hand. These mirrored features include an Ambi Mag Release, Ambi Index Finger Grooves and a complete Bolt Catch Assembly on both sides giving you a true Ambi Bolt Hold function which is absolutely priceless when clearing malfunctions (I know you’ve heard me preach about that before).

SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 1

SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 2

Upon further inspection you’ll also see that they have also included a Pivot Pin Spring Housing on both sides of the lower receiver. That’s right! This new receiver set even offers an ambi Pivot Pin and Takedown Pin system which is something I don’t remember ever seeing before. A couple of other neat features are the Quick Release Dust Cover Assembly and a Threaded Forward Assist Pin Hole.

SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 3SI Defense Ambi 308 Billet Set 3

So as you can see, this is a very well thought out design that looks just as good. I’ve also heard there will be an AR-15 version of this available as well so keep an eye out for that. SI-Defense is currently taking pre-orders for this new Ambi .308 Billet Set. Head on over to their brand new website at www.SI-Defense.com or call 406-752-4253 to place your pre-order.

**The receiver set includes dust cover, ambi bolt catch, ambi mag release. Forward assist, takedown pins and ambi selector not included but are available for sale in the Parts and Accessories section of their web store.
