Forged Lower Receiver

Forged Lower Receiver

Our collection of forged 80% lowers are some of the most popular, trusted units available on the market. Used by thousands of builders over the years to construct AR rifles and pistols in the most popular calibers, we've honed in offering only the most reliable and proven receiver blanks. These 80 lowers start life from raw 7075-T6 aluminum, precisely forged into their final shape and refined through CNC machining. Each unit ships with a raw finish or a mil-spec, Type III hardcoat anodized coating.
 

Forged 80% Lowers Are Mil-Spec

Like any "retail" stripped lower receiver, our forged lowers sport mil-spec fittings to ensure compatibility with virtually all available AR-15 parts and accessories. Once cut and drilled, your finished receiver will accept any mil-spec lower parts kit, buffer assembly, trigger and pistol grip. Pivot and take-down pins are standardized to ensure compatibility with any appropriately chambered upper receiver. Our units are available in 5.56 NATO, .223 Remington/Wylde, and 300 Blackout.

Not Considered a Firearm Under Federal Law

Under federal law, the ATF does not consider forged 80% lower receivers to be firearms. Unlike a stripped lower (which is the only component of the AR15 considered a firearm) these units are not fully fabricated: The fire control cavity for the trigger and parts kit has not been milled, and the pin holes for securing the LPK have not been drilled. That means you can order your forged receiver blank and have it shipped directly to you, without the need to submit to a NICS background check. 

State Laws May Vary

Some states have banned 80% lowers and certain firearm parts, or have otherwise restricted the sale and ownership of products we sell. So, be sure to check your local and state laws. We can’t ship our products to certain states. Please check our Shipping & Return Policy before placing an order (see restrictions).
