Tactical Machining Class A Blem 80% AR-15 Lower Sale

Posted on February 14th, 2014 by ar15news

Tactical Machining just informed use that they have a bunch of “Class A” Blem 80% AR-15 lowers available and on sale. Tactical Machining grades blems on a 3 tier scale. Class A Blem lowers are basically as close to perfect as you can get but have extremely minor blemishes that most people would never even be able to notice. They could have actually just sold these as non-blem lowers but they have a very strict Quality Control process and these just barely didn’t pass. Check them out and stock up on some 80% lowers for just $59.99 each. www.TacticalMachining.com

Tactical Machining Class A Blem Lowers

This is our highest quality 80% AR-15 blem receiver we offer, its practically perfect! Our standard 7075 forged 80% AR-15 lower receiver. This is a Class A blemished lower receiver with a minor imperfection. Most imperfections are unnoticeable and NONE affect the functionality.

Description

This is a Class A blemished lower receiver with extremely minor imperfections. Most imperfections are unnoticeable and NONE affect the functionality. These 80% AR-15 Lower receivers start as 7075-T6 forgings from the lead forge in the US and are fully machined to mil-spec tolerances. The operations left to be completed are as follows/ fire control group, trigger pin, hammer pin, trigger slot and the safety selector hole. This is a not an FFL item. This is not a complete receiver and still requires machining to be done. We have a copy of our ATF determination letter and our determination update stating that it is not a firearm.

Blemish: Some blemishes are slight scratches or dings. Again these blemishes are purely cosmetic and do not affect the functionality of a completed receiver.

Blem Classes:

Class A – Extremely minor imperfections in the forging. Imperfections are so minor you will be hard pressed to find them. No imperfection impairs function of receiver.

Class B – Minor imperfections to the forging. Imperfection might be noticeable on sight or slightly to touch such as small scratch or slight ding. No imperfection impairs function of receiver.

Class C – Noticeable imperfection to the forging. Imperfections consist of larger (up to a quarter inch) dings or pits. No imperfection impairs function of receiver.

One of the sweetest new lowers to come out on the market recently is the San Tan Tactical STT-15 billet completely ambi lower. Not only does it have a super unique look with a great finish but each lower also comes with fully ambidextrous controls including ambi bolt release and ambi mag release, plus ambi QD sling mounts built right into the lower.

These blem lowers are 100% functionally the same as non-blem models but may have minor nicks or visible tool marks but nothing major. They are also switching to a reversed flag design where these have the forward facing flag. Some companies wouldn’t even think twice about selling these as normal lowers but they just simply aren’t up to San Tan Tactical quality standards when it comes to the finish and look of the lower. The pictures below are of an actual blem lower and show an example of the minor cosmetic issues.

NEW!! Spartan-15 Billet AR-15 Lower from Joe Bob Outfitters

Posted on February 5th, 2014 by ar15news

A few months ago Joe Bob Outfitters introduced their new Spartan-15 Enhanced Billet Lower. I wanted to show you guys but they kept selling out before I could do anything. This time I was ready when they came back in-stock. As you already know, there are lots of billet lowers on the market, but so many of them look just like the next one and not to mention they can be very expensive. This is not the case with the new Spartan-15 Enhanced Billet Lower. The Spartan-15 has a very unique looking design and also features a Spartan Helmet on the right side of the magwell with the famous inscription “ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ” just below the helmet. Not only does this lower look amazing but it is also one of the best deals running. At just $119.95 its nearly the same prices as most forged lowers but offers a lot of addition features such as a flared magwell, 45 degree selector compatibility, threaded bolt catch assembly, upper receiver tensioning screw, and a bunch more (listed below). These seriously are a no-brainer. I need another lower like I need another hole in my head but I think I’m going to have to buy one of these. You can buy one too at www.JoeBobOutfitters.com.

We’ve always been close friends with the guys at Ranger Proof and posted about all of the past Ranger Proof Limited Edition rifles. The resounding feedback from people regarding these rifles has always been very high praise. This is primarily because DMack, the owner, is very meticulous about what parts he uses in these builds including what receivers they use. For the most recent run of Ranger Proof limited edition rifles they released their awesome brand new billet receivers. 

PWS Ranger Proof Billet Set 1

They completely sold out of that limited edition run but wanted to now offer their Ranger Proof billet receiver set to you guys at a really great deal. Not only do you get a great billet upper and lower receiver set but you also get to choose between Black, FDE, OD Green or Grey Cerakote. Better yet…these are just $325 Shipped to your FFL. If interested, send an email to sales@rangerproof.com

Don’t forget to head on over to the Ranger Proof Facebook Page and give them a “Like” as well for future rifle builds and deals. 

Every once in a while you see something or hear something said that is just so absurd that it goes viral at such a pace that it’s all you see for a week. This is the case with, the obviously ill-informed and now laughingstock of the gun community, Senator Kevin de Leon who recently called an AR-15 that was made with an 80% lower a “Ghost Gun” and said that it “has the ability with a .30 cabiler clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second”. This “Ghost Gun” term is now being used 1.5 million times per second at the mere sighting of anything even closely resembling an AR-15 (I can exaggerate too Senator de Leon). 

Last month AERO Precision started offering limited edition lowers starting with their “PEW PEW PEW” lowers which will end on Monday 1/27/14. They now have started taking pre-orders for their new “Ghost Gun” limited edition AR-15 lower receivers which are sure to be a massive hit for AERO Precision. These new lowers actually say “GHOST GUN” right on the magwell and the serial number starts with the word “GHOST”. The selector markings are also pretty cool. These lowers WILL BE anodized. The one in the picture below was the first one off the machines at AERO Precision.

620 AERO Precision Special Edition Ghost Gun Lower 2

Overall, I thought Senator Kevin de Leon’s speech was awesome. Its always great to see an anti-gunner say something so stupid that it actually increases the number of “Ghost Gun’s” sold. He might even be related to Biden. Lets hope for more awesomeness from Senator de Leon soon. You can order your new “Ghost Gun” AR-15 lower from www.AEROPrecisionUSA.com.

Possibly the Best Billet Lower Deal Going – Midwest PX

Posted on January 22nd, 2014 by ar15news

The guys at Midwest PX have just launched their new Premium Billet AR15 lower receiver. They have been talking about this lower for quite a while and took the time to make sure it was spot on before they released it. Looking at the specs on this thing, it has a check mark next to everything I look for in a good quality lower. Not only is it a great looking 7075-T6 lower, it also features a “rollpin-less design” by using a threaded bolt catch pin and an integrated winter trigger guard, has an upper/lower tensioning screw and is also compatible with my favorite selector, the Battle Arms Development 45 degree short throw. To celebrate introducing their new lower, Midwest PX is offering an intro price of just $119.95. I would almost guarantee you can’t find a better deal on a quality billet lower anywhere else. Check out the pics and details below, then head on over to www.MidwestPX.com to order a few of these for yourself.

Great Deal!! 2 Vet’s Arms Stripped Lower Sale

Posted on January 14th, 2014 by ar15news

Our friends over at 2 Vet’s Arms have been using a billet side-charging upper receiver on their rifles for a long time now but were pairing them with their nice looking forged milspec 2VA lowers. This year 2 Vet’s Arms will be transitioning to their new billet lower receivers (these look amazing by the way) to offer a more complete looking set. This also means they won’t be using the existing inventory of forged lowers they have at the shop. The 2VA team is all at SHOT Show this week in Las Vegas so they decided to run a sale on these stripped forged 2VA lowers at just $75 a piece. Don’t waste your money on super cheap, out of spec lowers. I have one of these and they are really nice. Would be a great base to start a new build on. Purchase some for yourself at www.2VetsArms.com.

SHOT Show blowout sale,

After SHOT we are transitioning to our new billet lower receivers, and so we are blowing these out the door. There are 99 in stock, so get on it now!!!

These will not ship until next week, and yes they require shipment to an FFL.

SNEAK PEEK!! Seekins Precision 308 Rifle / Receivers

Posted on January 13th, 2014 by ar15news

Here is the first look at the brand new Seekins Precision .308 (7.62×51) rifle that will be unveiled this week at SHOT Show 2014. People have been begging Seekins to make .308 components and it looks like they are finally going to get what they’ve been asking for. The image below is the only one I have of the new rifle. According to Seekins Precision, the receivers are based on the SR25 pattern, will accept the popular Magpul 20LR .308 PMAGs and features full ambi controls such as ambi mag release and ambi bolt lock back and drop. The upper is part of the IRMT family in that the rail attaches directly to the upper instead of a removable barrel nut creating an extremely strong lockup.

620 Seekins Precision 308 Rifle

Seekins Precision plans to sell these as complete rifles but will also be selling the uppers and lowers separately as well. According to Seekins the complete rifle will probably start at $2,400. Upper/lower kits will come with LPK minus trigger and selector and will cost around $700. They are still finalizing all of the details so these prices are not exact and might change. Look for more info and pics of this rifle on the Seekins Precision Facebook page and at www.SeekinsPrecision.com

Noveske Standard (N4) Forged Lowers In-Stock at Rainier Arms

Posted on January 6th, 2014 by ar15news

This is just an “FYI” post to let you know Rainier Arms has Noveske N4 forged lowers in-stock. These are not the Gen2 Forged Flared Lowers (aka FFL) but the standard milspec lowers which seem to have been sold out for a really long time. These are also not blems so you should have a pretty perfect finish for your new build.  Check them out www.RainierArms.com.
