Ripcord Lower Receiver; Stripped
  • Ripcord Lower Receiver; Stripped

    SKU: R5218-S

    For all you DIY'ers out there, our Stripped R5218 Lower Receiver is a quality machined receiver you can build your next project on. 


    We have all heard the line, "Lowers all come from the same four places, so a lower receiver is just a lower receiver." Well, that is actually very incorrect. There are, in fact, several companies who forge upper and lower receiver blanks. 


    While some can argue that one forge is better and one is less than desirable, it is important to know what company machined it (made it a lower receiver). If blueprints aren't read correctly, critical dimensions will be out of spec and this will throw other dimensions out of whack. You're then left with...a shit product. If the company that machined the lower receiver has crap tooling or is lackadaisical in their machining setup, again you are going to have a shit product. Don't even get us started on the topic of broaching magwells. Basically, not all lower receivers are created equal.   


    We work closely with MSP Aviation to ensure consistency in the quality of our R5218 Lower Receivers. We've developed sturdy tooling to ensure specific tolerances are repeatedly achieved during the machining process. We spend quite a bit of time with our engineers discussing current production items so that we can ensure we are producing a well machined part AND to identify potential improvements when we see the opportunity.
