Strike Industries Advanced Receiver Extension Now Available

Now that we have given you a break from the deluge of new products that Strike Industries is putting out, check out the new Advanced Receiver Extension! Strike has rolled out the handsome new buffer tube in four colors for whatever build you might have planned, currently, the black extension is the only one in stock though. I am told that the red, blue and FDE colors will be back in stock very soon.

They have shaved weight from the receiver extension by scalloping the surface of the receiver extension and removing material from some noncritical areas. Not only is it a bit lighter as a result, but it looks darn good if you ask me.

I do find it rather noteworthy that they are making these from 7075-T6 aluminum rather than the 6061 that we normally see on receiver extensions. Sure there are a few guys out there building buffer tubes in the more robust aluminum like my friends over at Brownells, but most of them are made from the softer 6061.

Check out Strike Industries for more information on the Advanced Receiver Extention, MSRP on the in-stock black model is $47.95, the more colorful models will be priced at $49.95 when they come in stock.

    Are they making these in the US?

    • Haulin’ Oats

      Like most of their products are from Taiwan; so they probably won’t be making them in the USA.

      • Gigi

        As long as their products are not made in China, I will buy it. LOL!

    Strike King Comp and Strike Finger Bump. Everything else comes after.

    So many colors! They will sell a ton to the hipster gun owners.

    • Stephen Shallberg

      The more hipsters who guns, particularly AR’s, the better.

      • lolwat

        I disagree. You know why?

        Look at beards. Lumber-jacking apparel. Tattoos. What do they all have in common? Hipsters ruined them for the rest of us.

          Tattoos? Hipsters cant ruin things that were ruined from tbe start

        Hipsters will never get into ARs. They’re already popular. Hipsters will probably flock to some obscure thing, and then abandon it when it sees more large-scale adoption.

    7075 is the milspec alloy… A properly made “milspec” extension should be made with extruded 7075 T6 type 3 with rolled threads.

    Anything else is not milspec… But there are several “milspec diameter” tubes out there, so you have to be mindful.

  • Gus Butts

    This is actually a Strike Industries product that I would buy. Their products are normally not that expensive and this receiver extension looks nice and not overtly extravagant. Good work, SI.

    • Haulin’ Oats

      I wonder when SI will start selling receiver sets.

    Pondering a .300 “Redout” build using Strike Industries red parts. Awesome.

    • “Redout” Do you have a Strike Industries catalog on your coffee table?

  • Haulin’ Oats

    The “angry strike industries dude” in 3,2,………..1?

        Good. That got really tiresome.
