    Cool Got Billet? Spikes Tactical NEW "BIOHAZARD" BILLET Upper/Lower

    Don't know who saw this yet, but I have to say that after using a regular Spikes Tactical Lower and Upper and other parts from them, I could only imagine that this Billet upper is the awesome !

    WHAT DO U GUYS THINK?

    It has the following features that i haven't seen on any other lower/upper combo:

    LOWER SPECS:

    • Machined from 7075 billet with Type III hardcoat annodized finish
    • Integrated winter style trigger guard
    • Ambi bolt release and bolt catch installed
    • Flared magwell
    • Textured on the front of the magwell
    • Low shelf for RDIAS
    • Captured buffer retaining pin and rear takedown pin (no more calls for spares)
    • Set screw for trigger reset
    • Set screw for upper to lower tension (how sweet is that?)
    • Bolt catch and bolt release are retained with a threaded pin rather than a roll pin

    Lower can be assembled with out a hammer and punch (amazing huh?)

    UPPER SPECS:

    • Machined from 7075 billet with Type III hardcoat annodized finish
    • M4 feedramps
    • Beefy design which is stiffer allowing less flex
    • Front of receiver is machined to accept most after market rail systems (yes, we play nice with everyone else)
    • Comes with the forward assist and ejection port door installed
    • The most beautiful lines you'll see on anything other than your wife!


    Introductory Price of only $499.95 for the set

    It does look really good and it has a lot of features. Looks like it would make a nice base for a long range setup. I wonder how much more it weighs than a standard upper/lower.

    Doesn't really offer anything better over regular upper/lower. Tacti-cool marketing.

    i disagree....if u assembly your own upper and lower it has some cool features, if u dont then i can see why u would say that....:

    • Captured buffer retaining pin and rear takedown pin (no more calls for spares)
    • Set screw for trigger reset
    • Set screw for upper to lower tension (how sweet is that?)
    • Bolt catch and bolt release are retained with a threaded pin rather than a roll pin
    • Lower can be assembled with out a hammer and punch (amazing huh?)


    and of course it's heavier, it's made form billet....and i like how 90% of the people who bitch about weight and what not aren't even using their weapons for any real or tactical purpose so why would weight matter...so u can tell ur buddy, oh look how light my AR is?! comeon

    I assembled all of my ARs and did several lowers for other ppl. Did all of them on my coffee table with just a punch and a small hammer while watching the tv.

    Anybody that needs those features to assemble a lower should probably have it done by somebody competent instead


    No instead you tell your buddy, oh look how leet my billet tacti-cool AR is?!?!
