View Full Version : Armalite SPR Mod 1 monolithic

Picked up a Armalite SPR Mod 1 mid-length monolithic today.
I must say, I'm impressed! I was a little reluctant getting it due to it not being a piston, I'm over that kick. Absolutely nothing wrong with DI(proven to work).

I have purchased several Armalite products over the past year and the quality is amazing!

I plan on changing the gas block to a PRI flip-up gas block and a different charging handle.

I will take this puppy out next weekend for a range report.

Nice! Tagged for future updates. I'd love a monolithic upper for my Pistol build, but wasn't ready to shell out $650+ for a VIS. $430 for the whole kit (when it was going to cost me $230 just for a normal upper and a cheap YHM rail) is a GREAT price.

Keep us updated!

Edit: Who'd you order it from, and what was the lead time? I'd be interested, but not if it means ordering and then waiting 6 months for it to ship, y'know? ;)

Great Googly Moogly :shock: that thing is AWSOME! :drool5:
I've been wanting one of those for like 3 yrs now. That thing is cool and that 1911 and knife only make it look cooler. Then you put that stock on it AND a ACOG! Good Gosh man you turned that thing into a "Hater Rifle". Is there a comp change coming also? You put one of those high speed comps on and that thing will surpass epic. I know you love you wife but that AR has got to be a close second. :D

There is no lead time (http://www.armalite.com/ItemForm.aspx?item=15003063&ReturnUrl=Categories.aspx?Category=fb7d6511-0276-4a7b-9096-79c1c179133a)

For a Mid-length I think its 45 days.

FASTFORWARD to 1:30. Also he says $550 for the kit, but I think that is with you shipping your upper to them and having them install the upper. Its $80 to have them install it + more if you have a perm muzzle device, + shipping of course.

Ok. I was just reading their FAQ and they made a big deal about how they can offer no estimates on ship time, nor can they give you any updates on status, period, ever....and it gave me the impression they were a "order it and wait 6 months" deal. Thanks.

It's pretty much impossible NOT to be impressed with any ArmaLite firearm. They are the original, and still one of the best. :thumbsup:

Heh. No they aren't.

Armalite, AKA Eagle arms, bought the rights to use the name. Nothing more.

The original Armalite does not exist anymore.

We don't need a history lesson, as most know about ArmaLite & the rest. Most also know exactly what I meant.;)

so let me get this straight, you can show where Colt, S&W, Remington all still have the ORIGINAL gunsmiths working for them, yet because ArmaLite personnel had a name change in their past they are no longer the original people... Please explain that logic to me.

If Leapers/UTG bought BCM, kept all the same people and had some turn over via retirement, and normal staff changes, BCM would all of a sudden NOT be BCM simply because someone else owned the company ..even if there were NO OTHER changes.

I don't think there is a single company older than 15 years where the top is still the same and the Lead Engineers are still the same. You are kidding yourself if you think otherwise and fault a company due to employee turn over. The proof is in the pudding... NOT in the name on the door.

Colt sucked in the 90s... that had nothing to do with the fact they were not Colt. ArmaLite of today is the same as ArmaLite of yester year. Some trends are good, some trends are bad.

In 20 years a new batch of people will be running and making ArmaLite firearms...That doesn't mean its not ARMALITE.

Where did it end for the prior corporate entity? When they licensed the AR-15 to Colt? When Fairchild dumped them as a subsidiary? Let's see, before Eagle Arms, there was Elisco Tool.

I think the current organization is a great company. I'm a regular customer & receive great customer service from them.

They are making great products, like this monolithic upper. I own one too.

Thanks, guys, you are making my point for me. AND, you got what I meant the first time around!:thumbsup:

*Also, ArmaLite has been making the AR-15 longer than every other corporation except for Colt, who only bought the design from ArmaLite Gen I to begin with. If anything, ArmaLite not only still makes top-notch weaponry, but probably have more credibility (i.e. "juice") in the industry than all other manufacturers.

... but I suspect a closer comparison would be something more like a group of investors that own a bush airline buying the rights to the TWA name, or the Pan-Am name maybe, and thinking nobody would notice. :P

You mean like Freedom Arms buying Remington, Marlin, etc?
