Dimensional Firearms “Shocker” Lower Receiver

11008626_724532474326116_1612023143500678477_o

Some things make me stop and appreciate a product, some things make me guffaw, and sometimes you run across a crazy product that combines both. The Dimensional Firearms LLC lower receiver is just that. Instead of reinventing a wheel, they have produced an original safety/selector marking scheme. Safe is a “peace” sign, semi “the bird” and full is rather… shocking.

For those who find it amusing or just to their eclectic tastes, the lowers are available on REVOLVR for $99.

    I personally liked the lower that instead of ‘fire’ was marked ‘I’m your huckleberry.’.

    “The bid sign”? Is that the sign you make to auctioneers at an auction to indicate that you’re bidding on an item? If so, I can’t imagine that you’d win very many auctions bidding that way.

  • RMN

    LOL that’s hilarious. Guess you’d need the auto-sear though for it to mean anything though? – and after getting over the funny factor, I’d probably hesitate to actually engrave that lower.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Fwiw, to demonstrate just how little thought was put into this, the auto-sear hole no one would ever install, would cut into the top engraving.

      • RMN

        haha yeah, see that now. Stupid and childish (after I giggled for a minute admittedly) Oh well, I’ll blame it on the stressful job 😉

  • JumpIf NotZero

    This would be super funny… If I was 15yo and we were talking about airsoft. This is TFB now?

    • RMN

      Gees, now I feel bad for laughing. I guess it was a bit juvenile. I can’t see them selling more than one anyway. I don’t think indicting TFB for one silly post though is really needed. We can move on… I withdraw my hilarious comment.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        You can giggle if you like! 🙂 I just dispise novelty garbage, esp when instead of “making” (marking) a goofy AR-15 lower, someone could be genuinely advancing their craft.

        And I’m not judging anyone on ‘one’ post.

        • RMN

          Nah, i can dig it. If you think about it, it was stupid. I got over my initial giggles. Agree, there’s no value to this. Novelty garbage

      • Adam Withem

        That’s exactly how I was sold on mine. Over the phone when I placed my order they said “we’ve come up with new fire icons… one is a shocker”
        I giggled and said yes… No regrets.. a 9mm AR is a range toy and it’s something everyone notices and laughs at when they pick it up.

  • An Interested Person

    I`ll be that guy.

    What on earth is that full-auto hand signal?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      High school humor at best. It would be funny if you had an actual arrested development. You could probably google “shocker” on urban dictionary, but depending on your attitude of guns as tools, general intelligence and maturity, level of training maybe, you’ll be dissapointed in the answer.

      Incoming: a bunch of people who will argue how it is actually funny just to argue.

      • An Interested Person

        Urban Dictionary never fails.

        I would agree, that has no place on my firearm. Or on anything else I own.

        The only humorous application I ever found was the Univerisity of Wichita, who are the Shockers in sports. They give out gigantic foam shockers at basketball games…

        At least you found another way to feel superior to everyone else.

        • JumpIf NotZero

          I’m sorry you troll so hard and no one usually feeds you :

        • El Duderino

          If you say things like “brochacho” or “two in the pink, one in the stink,” I feel quite superior to you. Just sayin’.

    • Shocker

      it’s the shocker. Talked about in high schools everywhere…

      Use Urban Dictionary to learn more. Check out Donkey Punch and Angry Ice Dragon if you’re entertained by the Shocker.

    it’s a custom product on tfb and it’s not $300 with a four month waiting list?
    I probably owe somebody money, but I don’t remember making the bet…

    I’ve had one of these on my dedicated 9mm SBR for about 3 years now. It was made by DDLES. This isn’t something new, but it is the first time I’ve seen it on a standard lower.

    Hey. Now I have a gun that matches the “Shocker” bumpersticker on the back of my primer-black Camaro!

  • West

    QUESTION: Im starting my first AR build and would like to get a few opinions on the best complete lower to start with. Thanks.

    • Spencer W

      It really depends on what you are wanting. Example, why a complete lower and not a stripted? Is it going to be a range toy or a working rifle? More of a precision rifle or more for up close? Big thing to look out for is paying extra just for the name, there is not a whole lot of difference between most lowers other than cosmetics.

      • West

        Its going to be a range toy most likely with a 16″ barrel so I suppose it will still be fairly accurate at long ranges. I wanted a complete lower because I have never built an AR before. Would you suggest a stripped lower and a separate parts kit? If so which brand of each? Also Im looking at a Noveske or DAniel Defense upper. Are all lowers compatible with all uppers or are there issues to be considered? Thx

        • Spencer W

          I went with a srtippted lower and got the parts separate and was very happy with how it turned out and very, very happy with the price. By buying everything separate I got to pick exactly what I wanted. I used an aero precision lower with an umbrella corp grip 23, alg combat trigger and mill-surplus everything else. Kinda hard to find that combo in a parts kit. But as Ergo said “for a complete lower it’s hard to beat a psa for 150.” If you see a parts kit or complete lower you like go for it, just do a little research on the components first.

          Very nice uppers, but is it what you want? If it is going to be a range toy and your first build would you not rather have more of a beater rifle to learn with and have fun with vs one you might want to baybe? And again why a complete upper? You really might enjoy building the rifle from the ground up. It’s not hard at all, I had a lot of fun with mine.

          If it is a millspec ar upper it will fit on any millspec ar lower. The only issues I had were making sure of the fit of my forend because of my barrel length and gas block.

  • sianmink

    That’s the intention I think, but the hand in the fire and shocker positions should be reversed (as in we should be seeing the back of the hand instead of the palm) to be correct.

  • Wetcoaster

    Huh, I was thinking the rock-and-roll / heavy-metal devil horns would have been more topical and relevant for the full-auto position on the selector 😉

  • Grindstone50k

    I thought that died out like 10 years ago?

  • Profbathrobe

    Personally I prefer “No Pew” “Pew” and “Pew Pew Pew”

    I don’t think she appreciated the shock.
