Zel Custom is selling a single shot AR-style lower designed to handle the abuse of high-power calibers. Along with other companies, Zel Custom manufactures AR uppers in calibers like .50 BMG, .416 Barrett, and .408 CheyTac. Some standard AR lowers may not be up to regular abuse from these heavy hitting cartridges.
So, Zel is selling the BR-15B, which is designed to handle the punishment. This lower eliminates the standard magazine well, uses an integrated trigger guard and is machined from 7075 aluminum billet for maximum strength.
Shooters can buy the BR-15B stripped for $199.00, or as a complete lower. A completed lower with a Magpul PRS stock, Pachmayr Field Pad and a DPMS lower parts kit will run $599.00. Buyers can also upgrade the completed lower with a Timney trigger for a total of $874.00.
