View Full Version : Custom AR Lower

Ok Guys... I think it would be cool to get something set up for a custom lower. Not custom as in a redesign, just a cool looking graphic that the majority of us will enjoy.

The company in mind would like to see some artwork first and also a headcount of what kind of numbers we are looking at.

I dont really care to have flakers say they are interested but never come through. So if you are genuinely interested please chime in. Plan on spending some dough (115-150), prices obviously depend on the quantity being purchased.

Also, is there a theme we can all agree on for the graphic?

I don't think you'll find many people who will sign up without a specific logo chosen. We did this a couple times with Calguns lowers and that didn't work out so well. You'd be better off coming up with a logo and a quote and see who is interested.

If you could post design dimension/color etc. limitations, people might be able to post submissions (myself included).

Fair enough. Personally, what direction would you like the graphic to go? I know some people sounded interested in a zombie hunter type design, but not sure.

That would look cool, but not sure how well that would translate to a lower. Also if it is someone elses graphic than we have to have permission to use it.

Some sorta zombie theme...If so im in for 1 or 2 lowers

There was a few threads I was just on about a custom zombied theme lower, and lots of people were very interested in purchasing if someone had one availible. Spikes was gunna make one, but said not for a few months and thats a still a maybe, and MEGA makes special zombie themed lower, but only for a special online forum which is kinda a hassle to join, and then you have to wait around til the guy in charge on the forum decides to get a group buy going if there is more then 20 ppl interested. And agian, the lower has engravings for there forum name, which i wouldnt even want on it since I dont plan on posting over there lol

05-11-2010, 3:11 PM
If you would like to post submissions that would be great. Then by Sunday we will do a poll.

The general rule of thumb for the graphic would be the size of a 50 cent piece. Obviously your graphic can be scaled down, but it should look good at that size.

The safety selector titles should also be responsible too. No 'Die/live', 'Kill/Safe' sort of stuff. Something within reason.

Even better... we have some one local that is willing to work with me on it. I rather stay in Cali! He also is down for having a sort of 'party/hang out' and watch the process get started at the shop. I think that would be really cool.

05-11-2010, 3:21 PM
Sweet...Also there is more room on the opposite side of the lower that usual doesnt get engraved on. (side with the mag release button) Might beable to get a bigger design if noone minds the design being on the opposite side then usual. Also thats the side that people can see too for those who wanna show it off.

Just an idea. But ide be interested if this happens. Low serial number + custom designs that only a few people have = sweet

I guess it depends if you want to go the more "serious" Calguns route, or the more fun-themed route. I'll see if I can't come up with 1 of each.

i mentioned this on a different tread, even though the zombie theme has been done
its still hella popular. one of the guys mentioned and a few liked the Umbrella Corporation logo from Resident evil.
Does anyone have a pdf /CAD of a blank lower that any interested members can use to design their own lower, we can then vote on one.
just a thought

How about just a plain US Flag with the words "Team America" somewhere on the lower. Maybe even color fill the flag. Either way I'm in.

05-11-2010, 11:05 PM
How about skull and crossbones, but instead of the regular crossbones, use some .223 bullets or something to replace them. Or as someone said above, a quote from the 2nd amendamant. Like maybe an american flag for the main design, with something short and simple about the 2nd amendmant under it. "Right to bear arms", "to keep and bear arms" or something about freedom.

So far, the "Don't Tread on Me" logo interests me.

Why dont you buy blank completed lowers and send them all out at once to a 3rd party machine shop for engraving, then anodize them afterward any color you want. That way you can get whatever you want engraved.

I think your best bet is coming up with a design you like and putting it out for everyone to see. After all you're the one doing the leg work, it should be a design that you want. Right now you've got too many different ideas from everyone to make a clear decision. You could also choose three designs and take a vote.

Are the logos going to be laser etched or engraved by cnc. The amount of detail and design that is possible will vary between each process. So that might benefit one idea more than the other. Simple line designs can be done by cnc, but laser etching can yield far greater detail.

You can do some pretty detail engravings with a cnc, we do at my shop. It takes a little longer. I actually like the machined finish better.

As stated earlier in the thread... the point of this thread is to submit logos that you want voted on. Sunday I will make a new thread with the different ideas. after voting, then it will be finalized.

Also stated earlier, the logo will be machined. Which also will factor in the cost of the final product due to machine time.

Yes, laser has greater detail. These are not going to be laser etched.

I didn't mean to sound like a jerk, was just trying to help out because it seemed like most of the ideas wouldn't lend them selves to engraving, compared to etching. I must have missed the spot where you said they'd be machined.

I've machined a couple lowers for my self, and with my equipment, logos that have less detail look far better. I actually did one with the punisher skull like in your avatar and it came out pretty well.

then again who would they go after.

though it would be cool to build as if the gun looks like it would belong to the 'Company' and is for emergency purposes only. with bar code, Contained (Safe)/ Infected (semi) / Outbreak (Auto)

Just do an outline engraving of the umbrella, then engrave the barcode under it..Simple to make design, and seems like alot of people would want it..

Then maybe put something snazzy for the selector swicthes if thats a possibility, and doesnt cost extra

Seems like the only 2 voted designs are that, and the hella Norcal style trucker girl logo

I have done some research and have yet to find where the word Umbrella is trademarked.

There is an Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group (http://www.trademarkia.com/logo-76681259.html and also http://www.trademarkia.com/umbrella-corporation-76681260.html) But only under those names.

We can legally use the Umbrella logo with a barcode (that would be the same logo any more) and even add the word Umbrella (that word only) without being in violation of the law.

Hope that helps.

Its their published work which makes it trademarked. Unless you dont care about copyright / trademark infringement you want to stay clear of replicated published work or making it even similar for that matter. You are then binding their company to such a weapon by marking it with a similar logo that they have in their game. its like putting a nike logo on it but changing it a little. Not gonna fly.

Yeah I know it would be iffy, but from a legal stand point we would be in the clear. Thats if they even notice 20 guns with a similar logo and decide to pursue it.

But if you guys wanted to do one with that Obama image with "Nope" or "Dope", that would be cool. Maybe mark the selector with "Hope" for safe and "Change" for fire. That would be amusing.

Yeah, I figured it would be better than the usual "Safe, Semi, Someday" or "Parley, Pillage, Plunder" markings. I even think the "Hope, Change" markings would go well with the Gadsden flag receivers. A bit more subtle than the Obama markings, but cool none the less.

There is no law stating your lower can not have the markings of a third selector position. If the LEO is going to look, he's going to look any way. This makes no differance. Splikes Lowers have 3 options, so do many lowers.

Law states lower must have 3 things, Manufacturers name, address and individual serial number. All other markings are fine, less is un-cool.

I would be in for a magwell cut out lower, where the logo is cut right out of the magwell exposing the magazine body.

A buddy has one with a peace sign made out of the outline of 3 bullets and engraved words saying, "peace through superior fire power" He did it himself, so its not a trade mark thing.

the bullets would be cut-outs so you would see the magazine if inserted, the circle and wording is only deep engraving.

this is only a crude example

I was thinking the same thing this weekend except for one minor adjustment. I hope you dont mind me editing your picture a tad. I know its crude, I drew it in like 3 mins at work... But anyways, this was my idea.

I love the peace through superior firepower one but isn't the peace sign upside down. I would also be interested in the umbrella corp logo.

then you might like one of my glock slide plate covers (see below) :)

anyway...

the bolt face logo is a good one, not sure if ar15.com would be cool with it. either way, seems these custom group buys are so hard to actually get going as everyone has a different want it could go on forever.

The auto markings can be left out if no one wants it.

But as for the manufacturer markings, is it going to have custom model and serial numbers?

Getting everybody to decide on 1 design is not going to be easy..

We need to get a list of the folks who are interested, what designs they are sure they want in on, and then vote on the final design.

I like pretty much all of the ideas.

C_1 - mudflap girl, 2A, DTOM, Obama, peace, zombie, biohazard, etc etc..

thats my only hangup with the image considering the engraving process.

What do you mean, Which one are you refering to? The one with the detail or the all black one? The one with the detail would be extremely hard to engrave thats why I made the all black one. I jsut used a random image on google, type in M16 or Ar-15 and I'm sure you can find the one I used.

It can be moved around a bit to make it looked better but thats the general design I wanted to put out there for critics to vote on. I have the hard copy of the image on my computer to edit it before production.
