First Look: SilencerCo AR-15 Lower Receiver

posted on August 10, 2020
SilencerCo has built an impressive resume producing suppressors and innovative new products like the Maxim 9. The company has now made another expansion with the announcement that it will produce AR-15 lower receivers. 

The new high-quality AR-15 lower receiver is constructed from billet aluminum and is fully customizable and carries an MSRP of $249. It is immediately available for purchase from Brownells, Capitol Armory, and Silencer Shop. The lower receiver features ambidextrous bolt catch, integrated QD sling mounts and integrated lower trigger guard. Best of all, it comes in at a very affordable price point. 

“For years, SilencerCo has aggressively ventured into various segments of the firearms industry with innovations like the Maxim 9, Maxim 50, and Radius. I was confident our engineering team could bring unique features and options to a lower receiver as well. We accomplished our goal by including a unique ambidextrous bolt catch, integrated QD sling cups and integrated trigger guard, all at an affordable price,” said Scott Clinger, SilencerCo’s VP Business Development. “As we continue to expand our line of firearms accessories, it is a natural progression to make a quality AR-15 lower.”

Why Lightweight Carbines Are a Game Changer

Technology and demand are driving a light-rifle trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Purpose-built, flyweight guns are a dream to carry and shoot, but the additional machining, exotic materials and manufacturing methods that can bring something like an AR rifle down to 4.5 pounds make it expensive.
