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.

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

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.

CMT Tactical “Ammo Grade” Billet UPUR-1 Uppers In-Stock!!

Posted on August 5th, 2013 by ar15news

Last month I was fortunate enough to get to help introduce the new CMT Tactical billet upper receiver called the UPUR-1. These things are super nice and sold out in the very first day they were released. I just noticed this morning as I was perusing their FB page that they have what they call “Ammo Grade” UPUR-1 billet uppers in-stock. Basically this means they are slightly blemished and are guaranteed to function perfectly as the blemishes are just cosmetic dings, scratches, etc. The “Ammo Grade” uppers are laser marked with a symbol on the underside of the forward assist where it is not very noticeable. Perhaps the best part is they are marked down to just $168 with FREE SHIPPING. Get more info and purchase yours at CMTTac.com.

As you can see I went for a pretty lightweight KISS style rifle. I don’t really like to just haphazardly throw a build together. That’s one thing I always tell people who are building a rifle. Think through and figure out what you want your rifle to be. I have plenty of “overweight” rifles so from the start I planned on keeping this one fairly light. This build came in at only 6 lbs. 12 oz. which for a billet upper and lower set is pretty good. To do that I utilized some lightweight accessories which includes a Fortis Manufacturing REV 12″ rail, Magpul K grip and MBUS, Seekins Precision T-1 mount and B5 Systems SOPMOD Bravo stock and QD End Plate. Other parts that aren’t necessarily lightweight but were used are the Smith Enterprise Vortex flash hider, CIV Tactical 16″ M4 barrel and BCG, Impact Weapons Handstop, ALG Defense ACT Trigger, Battle Arms Development BAD-ASS selector, BCM Low Profile Gas Block and a Receiver Extension Kit from Damage Industries. Any questions or comments regarding this build? Shoot me an email HERE.
