View Full Version : The first 45/90 degree compatible lower receiver

04-06-2011, 7:16 PM
The billet AR15.com lower is the first 45/90 degree selector compatible lower to be available :D


Norgon ambi mag release, right side bolt release, Geissele trigger, and our 45 degree selector (compatible with legacy 90 degree selector as well).

We've been working with ar15.com for a long time, though we make but one component in this project, judging by the time we spent collaborating with ar15.com, the numerous conference calls and emails, we know they spent at least this much time with other components as well. This is a no holds barred, no expense spared premium lower receiver.

We do not have pricing or availability info yet, a formal announcement will be made on ar15.com shortly ;)

Looks good. Hopefully you also release the information here and on M4C.
I have your ambi safety's on my weapons and love them. The choice of which levers makes it outstanding.

Thank you Doc!
This is the preliminary page for ordering http://store.ar15.com/store/product.html?cat=9&prod=279

Before anyone's shocked by the price, we did some price shopping and math:

Norgon ambi mag release: $90
Battle Arms Dev. 45 degree selector: $85
MIAD: $35
Geissele 3 gun trigger (not the ar15.com special 4.5lb, that's an ar15.com exclusive): $230
Magpul CTR stock: $92

We're up to $532 so far, this doesn't include the other lower parts such as left side mag catch, receiver extension, front and rear take down pins, etc.

If I were to build a rifle with identical specs with a forged receiver (that's not a billet, Magpul-ar15.com collaboration receiver with the right side bolt release), I'd be approaching $700 and climbing.

Speaking of Magpul, ar15.com purchased the rights to the super rare Magpul receiver design, thus the family resemblance.

BTW, they will make it CA compliant for CA customers :)

There will be more 45/90 compatible receivers available this year from other manufacturers, some forged, other billet.

AXTS will offer both a forged and a billet, fully ambidextrous receiver, Spikes Tactical will have a forged receiver, Top Notch Tactical will have one based on the Seekins receiver :)
