Black Rifle Syndicate is a new startup in the firearms industry, and their first offering is a bit unique. They have launched a Rocket Hub project that is essentially a pre-order for 80% billet lower receivers.
If you’re not familiar with Rocket Hub, it’s a crowd sourcing website that allows people to sign up and financially support different projects. In return for financial support, companies can offer various levels of incentives. In the case of Black Rifle Syndicate, these levels consist of 80% lower receivers (quantity, anodizing, choice of aluminum, etc). All in all a very cool way to conduct a pre-order and get your business off the ground.
80% Lower Receivers
If you’re not familiar with an 80% lower receiver, this post will explain why you should want one. Since Sandy Hook, they have been nearly impossible to find, and Black Rifle Syndicate is trying to change all of that.
As mentioned, there are several different levels of support. The base level of $65 gets you one 6061 billet 80% lower receiver, non-anodized. I chose the $110 level, which is a 7075 billet 80% lower receiver anodized in either black or silver, because the 7000 series aluminum is much harder than the 6000 series.
You can purchase an 80% lower here. The target delivery date is end of July/beginning of August.
About Black Rifle Syndicate
We decided to start Black Rifle Syndicate to serve two fold: one, to provide our customers with high quality firearm products and services and two, to create jobs for veterans in our local community. Black Rifle Syndicate is owned by a veteran of the United States Army Infantry.
The purpose of our crowd funding campaign is to raise awareness for our firearms manufacturing operations. Products offered will start with milled 80% AR15 lower receivers made from 6061 and 7075 billet aluminum. All of our lowers will be produced to meet and exceed military specifications. Once operations have begun and we have gained the required FFL for manufacture, we will also begin production of completed AR15 lower receivers as well as other firearm platforms and components.
