Great Deal!! Quentin Defense Blem Forged AR-15 Receiver Sets

Posted on February 20th, 2014 by ar15news

Quentin Defense is most notably known for their quality, affordable billet receivers but they also offer forged receivers as well. As with all manufacturers, over time you accumulate some cosmetically blemished versions of your products that are still 100% functionally the same as the non-blem models. Blems can be small nicks in the finish, scratches or even slight differences in anodizing colors. Right now Quentin Defense has some cosmetic blem forged receiver sets in-stock at an awesome deal. These would be great for those looking for an inexpensive receiver set, those who know they are going to scratch up their receivers anyway or those who already plan on doing a custom Cerakote color on their new rifle build. You can pick up a Quentin Defense stripped blem receiver set for just $115 at www.QuentinDefense.com.

Upper and lower receivers are cut from 7075-T6 forgings and Type III hard anodized.

Upper and lower receivers come stripped. Lower fire control parts, dust cover and forward assist hardware not included.

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.

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.

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.

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

$700 Complete AR Build with Red Dot and 10 PMAGs – Shipped!

Posted on January 3rd, 2014 by ar15news

I get asked quite often how to build a decent AR on a budget. Nine times out of Ten, when someone says “budget” they are referring to something under $1,000. There are lots of manufacturers of junk parts out there so its awesome to get to help steer people in the right direction. I typically go with the lowest build I would let myself do if I were doing a gun just for range fun but that would also work in an SHTF situation and let the end user do any upgrades they think are necessary. One trick that works is to try to buy all of your parts from one company to save on shipping costs. The info below is just one example that I was able to piece together for someone by looking for deals at Palmetto State Armory. 

PSA has really been pushing some deals on their PTAC line of uppers and parts. Right now they have a deal on a complete upper with M16 BCG, M4 Profile barrel, Charging handle and a StrikeFire red dot for just $400. That’s pretty awesome if you ask me. They also have a deal for 10 PMAGs and a stripped blem PSA lower for just $170. The only thing left was to find the lower parts kit. By searching the site I found that their Black MOE Lower Build Kit was just $100, which is $20 cheaper than the FDE MOE Lower Build Kit, so I went with black kit. The total for the parts came to $670, add shipping of $29 to my house and you’re at $699 shipped. As I mentioned, this is a budget AR. Don’t expect it to be some tack driver or comparable to your Noveske. Its a $700 gun and with all things, you get what you pay for.

PSA Blem Lower and 10 PMAGS – $170

*Great Deal* “PEW PEW PEW” Matched Upper / Lower Set – $145

Posted on December 20th, 2013 by ar15news

I just saw this deal pop up earlier today and thought it was just too good of a deal to pass up posting about. I’ve already posted about the new “PEW PEW PEW” special edition forged lowers from AERO Precision that are only available through the end of this month. They do nothing different than the standard lowers but say “NO PEW, PEW and PEW PEW PEW” in the selector markings which is awesome! Just now they added a deal where you can pick up a matched stripped forged upper at the same time for just $40 more. AERO Precision receivers are very high quality and are some of my favorite ones to build off of. Grab your matched special edition set now at www.AEROPrecision.com for just $145.

NEW!! Adams Arms C.O.R. Upper In-Stock at Rifle Gear

Posted on December 12th, 2013 by ar15news

I’ve been meaning to doing a write up on the new Adams Arms COR (Competition Optics Ready) complete upper so when our friends at RifleGear.com emailed me and said they had some in-stock it seemed like the perfect time to make it happen. This new upper is a very nice rifle length competition upper built off the awesome Adams Arms piston system but it seems like it would be a nice fit for someone looking for a high quality, lightweight upper that is a breeze to shoot as well. I personally have not had the pleasure of shooting the COR Upper yet but I would love to some day. I’ve heard a few people who have shot it say its the lightest, smoothest shooting upper they’ve ever shot. With a price-tag of $998 it won’t be a right fit for everyone but its definitely a sweet upper and lots of bang for the buck even at that price. Check out the pics and specs for the new Adams Arms COR upper below. If you like what you see, head on over to www.RifleGear.com to snag one for yourself.

Our New Low Mass Carrier and Rifle Length System significantly reduces felt recoil, and the VDI Jet Comp virtually eliminates muzzle rise for follow
up shots.

All Adams Arms products are made in the USA and come with a Life-Time Warranty.

FEATURES
