Seekins Precision is expected to show off a new skeletonized AR-15 receiver set later this month at the SHOT Show. Called the NX15, the new set will likely excite Seekins fans with its styling and quality of build.
The new set is CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and has distinctive angles that are typical of the company’s designs. The magazine well has a partial cut out in the shape of the company’s logo.
Beyond the styling, the set has a number of more practical features. These include a receiver tensioning screw, an ambidextrous bolt stop assembly, an oversized trigger guard for shooting with gloves on and the company’s enhanced bolt catch.
While the company’s press release does not state this, the photo shows assemblies for both a dust cover and forward assist that are installed. The suggested retail price on this set is $539 – definitely not a budget build. However, having shot a Seekins Precision rifle in the past, I can say the company builds top notch gear.
While this information is solely on a receiver set, it sounds like Seekins will also release an NX15 rifle. The cover of Guns & Ammo Book of the AR-15 shows a Seekins rifle with this receiver set. The only information online about the rifle I could find is that is is 6.5 pounds.
