Posted on February 4th, 2015 by ar15news

For weeks…no months now, everyone has been asking “When can I buy that awesome CMT Tactical Ambi lower?”. Well, your wait is now over. Just yesterday CMT Tactical announced that they had opened sales for the new UHP15A ambi receiver. The new UHP15A features an Ambi Mag Release on the left side of the receiver and an Ambi Bolt Release on the right side of the receiver as you can see in the pictures below.

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.

As with all of the different billet receivers CMT Tactical makes, the fit, finish and overall quality of the UHP15A is top tier and features a completely “roll-pin-less” assembly. The UHP15A ambi lowers are now available for purchase as just the UHP15A ambi receiver alone or in Upper and Lower Combo sets and will soon be available through RainierArm.com and AimSurplus.com.

Sneak Peek!! CMT Tactical Left Side Eject Billet Upper

Posted on August 18th, 2014 by ar15news

CMT Tactical has really been cranking out new products lately and I don’t think they have any plans to slow down. Here’s a little sneak peek at a project they are working on right now. CMT Tactical just prototyped their first Lefty version of their awesome billet UPUR upper. The best part is it doesn’t look like an afterthought like most left hand eject uppers. It features a forward assist and shell deflector on the left hand as well making it a true left hand setup. Not to mention it has the usual CMT Tactical sexy lines.

As of right now its just a prototype and no availability timeframe was mentioned. I’m sure if there is enough interest and demand for this new Lefty upper, CMT Tactical will make it happen. Be sure to stop on over at the CMT Tactical Facebook page and let them know if you want them to make this Southpaw Dream a reality. You can also take a look at www.CMTTactical.com to check out their full line of billet lowers and uppers. 

CMT Tactical has made a really great name for themselves with their great billet AR-15 upper and lower receivers and now they are coming out with their own line of complete uppers. Instead of just doing the typical AR upper, CMT Tactical is doing something pretty cool by offering a 20″ Predator Marksman Rifle upper as the first of many complete uppers.

CMT Tactical PMR Complete Upper 1

The PMR upper includes a CMT Tactical UPUR-4 Slick Side billet upper receiver, 20″ 5.56 rifle length barrel, 15″ Samson Evolution rail, Low Profile Gas Block, BCM Gunfighter charging handle and a CMT M16 BCG. CMT Tactical also puts there money where there mouth is with an MOA accuracy guarantee.

You can also request the upper be built with a Dust Cover and Forward Assist for just $60 more. For more information or to purchase head on over to www.CMTTactical.com.

Five New Billet Upper Versions from CMT Tactical

Posted on June 17th, 2014 by ar15news

CMT Tactical has been making some really nice billet upper and lower receivers for a while now. You might be thinking, “Yeah, everyone is making billet receivers now.” and you aren’t too far off. What’s setting CMT Tactical apart is their true dedication to quality and the fact that they are willing to develop additional variations of their receives to meet the needs of their customers and potential customers. Recently they introduced five, yes you read that correct F-I-V-E, new versions of their billet AR-15 upper receiver starting at just $128. I’ve listed these new uppers below. Two are in-stock now and the other three will be out next month. Check them out and see if any of them will work for your next build.

First up is the CMT Tactical UPUR-1A. This upper has all of the same features as the original UPUR-1 upper (forward assist, dust cover, 7075-T6 construction, etc) but now features an enlarged Ejection Port making it compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper is in-stock now!

Second is the CMT Tactical UPUR-2. The UPUR-2 is very similar to the standard CMT Tactical billet upper but they’ve removed the Forward Assist. It still has a Shell Deflector and a Dust Cover and is NOT compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

The third new upper is the CMT Tactical UPUR-3 billet upper. Basically take the UPUR-1A and remove the dust cover and forward assist. You now have a Slick Side billet AR-15 upper that will work great for any AR build but has the enlarged Ejection Port for 458 SOCOM builds. This upper is in-stock now!

620 CMT Tactical UPUR-3 billet upper

The CMT Tactical UPUR-3A is the fourth new upper from CMT Tactical and basically expands on the UPUR-3 upper. This version has a cutout for side charging BCG’s and large enough Ejection Port opening to be compatible with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

620 CMT Tactical UPUR-3a billet upper

The fifth and final new upper is the CMT Tactical UPUR-4. This upper is a new Slick Side version that addresses the concerns many people have with Slick Side uppers and that is the lack of a Dust Cover to keep contaminants out of the upper. The new UPUR-4 has no Forward Assist or Shell Deflector but it does still let you use a Dust Cover which is a cool feature. As with most of these new uppers the Ejection Port has been slight enlarged to work with 458 SOCOM builds. This upper will be available for purchase July 2014.

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. 

620 CMT Tactical 308 - 762 AR-10 billet receiver set 1

620 CMT Tactical 308 - 762 AR-10 billet receiver set 2

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.

620 CMT Tactical 308 - 762 AR-10 billet receiver set 3

Features:
-  UHP-10 LOWER CNC MACHINED FROM 7075 T6 BILLET
–  UPUR-10 UPPER PRECISION MACHINED FROM 7075 T6 BILLET-DPMS HIGH PROFILE

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.

AR15NEWS SPR Build Update

Posted on January 21st, 2014 by ar15news

I wasn’t really happy with the end product of my SPR build which is why you haven’t seen much of it lately. So I’ve been making some upgrades that I feel will help finish this build. One of the things I wanted to change was the stock so I just recently added a Magpul PRS stock with a Knight’s Armament Company receiver extension and buffer. I’ve always loved the PRS and feel like it really makes this lower exactly what I was hoping for from the start. 

AR15NEWS SPR Build 620

My SPR Lower now consists of a CMT Tactical billet lower, Battle Arms Development BAD-CASS short throw selector, Magpul PRS Stock and MOE+ grip and an awesome trigger in the Geissele SD-E. I already have about 200 rounds through this rifle and its a serious tack driver. The Geissele SD-E is such an amazing trigger and is perfect for the SPR. I’m toying with the idea of purchasing a monopod for the stock but I will most likely just stick with my trusty sand/bean bag for a while. Will update you guys with a new picture of my SPR upper in a few days as well. 

SNEAK PEEK!! CMT Tactical 762 Billet Receiver Set

Posted on December 31st, 2013 by ar15news

Our friends at CMT Tactical released a small sneak peek at new .308/762 ambi billet receiver set last night. CMT Tactical has been producing their UHP-15 billet lower and UPUR-1 billet upper for the AR-15 platform and its a beautiful, high quality set. I would expect the exact same thing for the new .308 set. There is no official word just yet but it appears to be DPMS pattern. According to CMT Tactical, these will be slated for distribution starting March 1, 2014 which is now just two months away. We’ll update you guys with new pictures and details as they become available.
