OEM parts supplier Unbranded AR has released a new stripped lower receiver with throwback markings. Nothing ruins a good carry handle build like a rollmark with the wrong vibes, but this one will blend right in.
AR Lower Receivers @ TFB:
- JP Rifles’ ASF-20 Ambidextrous AR-15 Lower Receiver
- Genuine Armalite M15 Pegasus Lower Receiver Kits Now Available
- Sharps Bros SHOWDOWN Lower Receiver
Well-known old school lowers like Colt and H&R had horse and lion logos, respectively, inside a circle. UAR follows the circle logo trend with a globe design that’s reminiscent of Pan Am or a CIA front company business card. It looks like a logo that belongs on an XM177 or similar setup.
Many original lowers featured the ubiquitous “PROPERTY OF U.S. GOVERNMENT” text below the manufacturer logo. UAR plays off this with a “PROPERTY OF U.S. CIV” marking. The model number, serial number, and caliber marks are laid out similar to the old military style as well. Classic military styling also extends to the selector switch, which is marked SAFE, FIRE, AUTO in true M-16A1 form.
The retro lower is in stock now, and is on sale for $79.99.
