NEW!! CMT Tactical .308 Billet Receiver Set

Posted on March 8th, 2014 by ar15news

CMT Tactical has just released their new .308 Billet Set and they look amazing. CMT Tactical is breaking the mold in more than one way with this new offering. As you can see in the pictures below this new .308 receiver set looks absolutely stunning with its ultra flared magwell, integrated oversized trigger guard and it’s unique lines. Being a billet set means the manufacturer has the ability to create a more unique look than just a standard receiver set.

CMT Tactical’s billet set model names all start with some variation of UHP which stands for Ultra High Precision. If you’re familiar with CMT Tactical’s standard 5.56 billet set you definitely know that this is a very accurate description of the product CMT Tactical produces. They’ve now taken that same precision approach to the .308 platform creating the perfect base to not just a great precision long range rifle but an all around awesome battle rifle. Just looking at how perfect the receivers match up and all of the lines meet perfectly you can tell this is one awesome set.

The new CMT Tactical .308 billet receiver set also breaks the mold when it comes to the notion that all .308 sets must cost a fortune. Despite the Upper and Lower being machined from high quality 7075 T6 BILLET and offering high end features such as a Wire EDM Magwell, Battle Arms Development Short Throw Selector compatibility, Threaded Bolt Catch Assembly and an upper/lower Tensioning Screw, this billet set is actually closer in cost to that of your high end 5.56 billet receiver sets. Rainier Arms will have the first 100 sets of these CMT Tactical .308 billet receivers and at just $498.75 they will sell out fast. If you want to snag a set for yourself, get on the Email Notification list right now at www.RainierArms.com and be ready to click buy when you get the email that they are in-stock and ready to go.

The Harpe complete upper features Ares Armor’s new “Harpe” handguard, Black Nitride Barrel, Effin-A MKII compensator, Full Auto Nickel Boron BCG and an Extended Latch Charging Handle which is a ton of nice features for less than $500.

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.

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.

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

$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.

Complete Upper with StrikeFire Red Dot – $400

PSA Blem Lower and 10 PMAGS – $170
