Having made many other components for the AR-15 in recent years, including the MUR upper receiver, VIS polylithic upper receiver/handguard, CASV handguard, and Modstock/EMod/IMod stocks, Vltor has finally moved on to lower receivers.
Not content to make standard lowers, Vltor has given the VR a very large magazine release button. The lower will be available for $379.95 with everything needed to complete the lower (lower parts kit, buffer, spring, and tube) minus a stock body. They are shipping in mid-March but are available for pre-order now.
Vltor will also be selling factory SBRs. Naturally, they’re heavily laden with Vltor kit.
