These are not available yet, so keep an eye on Spike's website. 03 FFLs get a discount there, it is about 10% off. ST will be selling them for $200.

yea, thats nice too.


I still REALLY want a Jolly Roger lower from Spike's... I hope they drop the price alittle.... 250 for a lower is a bit too much for the current market I think.

Ooh, I had no idea Spike's gave an 03 FFL discount. Time to send mine in...

great model number, unfortunately the zombie is really hard to make out.

Another cool lower from Spikes. Glad to see the price will be a bit less than the Jolly Roger.

yea, thats nice too.

I completely agree. I'd definitely have one in the safe if the price was lower.

Damn, I think after we did our custom l;ower buy from Spikes, they jacked out idea. Bastards. lol I do like the SHTF-15 and the selector marking better though.

WOW!
Just what I have been wanting!!
They are just a few hours up the road in Apopka.

Best of all they are not far from Disney World. Two for one trip!!:)
I wonder if they can bang me out a pistol lower in the Zombie model?:drool5:

The logo is way too busy, I'm not seeing the Zombie either. Spike's should be advised to hire a different designer to work on their logos, not a big fan of the overly complex tribal spider either.

The zombies face is onthe right side. Its face is skeletal while the rest of the head still has some flesh on it. The zombies mouth is open too. I think this lower would be a great candidate for crayon work. If you used flesh, bone white, and maybe a small amount of red for blood abd a color for hair it could come out pretty sweet!

look for the cross.. that is the center of his open mouth. you will then see teeth around the cross. and so forth

Very cool, just might have to save up some money for that one.

Black Majik

Is this like Magic Eye, where you have to stare and concentrate for a while until the image pops out?

turbochris
01-29-2010, 7:58 AM
I think its ugly

djleisure
01-29-2010, 8:05 AM
Hmm... it's okay, but I prefer the other one that has "OUTBREAK" in the full-auto spot... oh well, it's nice to see something different.

I wouldn't mind the jolly roger but 250 is a rip. This zombie one looks too busy and is hard to tell. Just my 1 cent. They have a USMC one i like but i think that one is 250 too. Its a stripped lower for God's sake!

Why is it named zombie when the image looks like a dinosaur.

I think the selector should be labeled,

Dead = Safe (they are already dead, no need to shoot)

Live = Single shot (for shooting standard living zombies)

Undead = (SHTF Zombies! Full auto).


If a person completely unfamiliar with the AR platform were to look at that lower, I'm pretty sure their immediate reaction would be to assume "Live" meant ready to fire, and "Dead" meant safe. Seems like a bit of a disaster waiting to happen.

Yeah it took me a couple of minutes of staring to find the zombie in that picture... they need to hire another graphic designer, cuz that image is terrible!

Otherwise I like the idea.

Maybe it would be more recognizable if someone colored in the lines using 2-3 different colors to help differentiate features... (c'mon you photoshop ninjas... I know you're lurking here!)

Quiet - Safe
Undead - Fire

How can you guys not see the zombie? It is pretty clear to me. By the way they are only doing about 175 of these, well 200 but they are keeping 25 of em.

WOW!

I can't remember if Spike's does single shot pistols for us. They probably will if you call, they are very CA friendly.

Dead = Safe (they are already dead, no need to shoot)

Believe me, I fought for it. And using the same thinking. I don't understand why you'd want to shoot a dead person and keep another alive during a zombie apocylpse. In the end, the idiots on ARF out numbered me :D

Damn, I think after we did our custom l;ower buy from Spikes, they jacked out idea. Bastards. lol I do like the SHTF-15 and the selector marking better though.

You could always have them engrave whatever you want on the other side of the magwell or along the trigger/hammer pins.

Sick Boy

^^ No, we tried to pay them extra and they wouldn't do it. Hmmm... And now they have the same kind of idea. Bastards.

I think ours was:

Safe

Shamblers

SHTF

It was Spikes. That's why I keep saying they stole our idea. lol

Zombie Squad sent them in a few ideas and what you see above is what they could do for us. They never offered a zombie lower before but now they do after doing a custom run for us even when they said they wouldn't do any FCG engraving. Suspetise........

We are going with Sun Devil for the next one, as they are more friendly and will do whatever engraving we want
to pay for. And it will be billet!

I wasn't either at first, do a slight head tilt to the right. It helped me.

You can buy the striped lower and parts and put it together yourself. That's what I did. :D
