Seekins Precision Offers AR Upgrades

posted on October 3, 2016
Seekins Precision began in 2004 after Glen Seekins, the company's founder, had an unsuccessful deer hunt in the Idaho mountains due to a set of broken scope rings. He set out to make a better product, and for the last 12 years, Seekins Precision has become known for quality AR-15 rifles, parts and accessories.

Seekins offers parts for every part of the AR platform, including full rifles. Four parts the company offers for the lower receiver are the safety selector, enhanced bolt catch, billet trigger guard and billet magazine release.

The SP Safety Selector is a drop-in replacement for any mil-spec selector switch and is fully ambidextrous. The selector allows the user to adjust between a 90-degree standard throw or a 60-degree short throw. The safety selector is available in black, red or flat dark earth. The SP Safety Selector retails at a suggested price of $39.99.

The company's Billet Trigger Guard will fit any mil-spec lower receiver and is machined from a solid piece of 6061-TC billet aluminum. The guard is designed to expand space around the trigger to allow for the use of winter gloves and easily installs with the use of a retention screw. The Billet Trigger Guard is available in black, red and flat dark earth and retails at a suggested price of $19.99.

The Enhanced Bolt Catch is easily installed and is intended to make bolt manipulation easier due to its oversized design and diamond texturing. The bolt catch is made through metal-injected molding, which allows for the use of materials stronger than those found on mil-spec bolt catches. The Enhanced Bolt Catch is available in black and retails at a suggested price of $12.99.

The company also machines its upgraded magazine release from 6061-T6 billet aluminum. The mag release is larger and easier to use than the mil-spec variant, but it drops in easily in any mil-spec lower. The mag release features a textured face and a blind threaded hole to keep a clean appearance. It is available in black, red or flat dark earth and retails at a suggested price of $5.99.
