Davidson Defense Panhead Billet Upper
The Davidson Defense "Panhead" AR-15 Billet Upper Receiver design was influenced by the iconic Panhead chopper motorcycles, a motor that was popular from the late 1940s and stayed in production until the mid-1960s. Panheads are known for having a unique ascetic, as well as being functional. The classic styling of these bikes that are equipped with the Panhead motor has become timeless and they also have been modified and customized to fit the customers' needs and desires. This is a very appropriate metaphor for an AR-15, especially a billet upper receiver. AR-15's like chopper motorcycles are constantly being modified to fit the customers' needs and wants. So it made sense to derive design inspiration from a product that people interact with the same way.
Precision machined from a solid block of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum the Panhead AR-15 billet upper boasts a sleek and clean design, that doesn't comprise structural integrity while maintaining a slimmer profile for weight reduction. To maintain corrosion resistance the Panhead is treated with a Type 3 hardcoat anodizing. Additionally, the Panhead fits a traditional Mil-Spec ejection port door.

JMT 80% Lower
The best just got better! James Madison Tactical is proud to introduce the new Gen2 AR-15 80% lower receiver. JMT is constantly evolving to deliver the ultimate lower in the industry. The decision to refine the cosmetics to their already rugged JMT composite / polymer lower, while at the same time taking the liberty to beef up existing strengths, truly makes the JMT lower even more substantial. JMT invites you to take a look and compare them to the competition. After doing so, JMT is completely confident you will choose them.
James Madison Tactical has created an 80% polymer lower kit that can be completed with household tools and an incredible included jig to make sure the right cuts and material are removed by the end-user the first time.
An 80% lower can be made from a wide variety of different materials. These materials may be forged 6061-T6 aluminum billet, 7075-T6 aluminum forging, or injection molded composite polymers.
The lower receiver of an AR-15 is essentially the backbone of the weapon everything else is built off of, it is what makes an AR-15 a firearm. An 80% lower receiver is exactly what it says, it is a lower receiver that is 80% complete. By it being 80% complete it is considered a normal part and not a serialized firearm, so it is legal to purchase without the need of going through a background check or a local gun dealer.

One of the most critical components of any AR-15 custom build is the handguard. In recent years freefloat handguards have increased in popularity. The freefloat handguard covers the barrel and is attached to the upper receiver via a barrel nut. The handguard serves many functions in an AR-15 build kit such as protecting the shooter's hand from being burned by the barrel, offering the shooter something to grip to help steady the weapon, can function as the attachment point for sights/optic, can have additional accessories attached, and adds to the aesthetic appeal of the build.
It is recommended that the handguard completely cover the gas system of the AR-15 so please consider your gas system length when shopping for a handguard. If you wish to buy a pre-designed upper build kit equipped with a handguard please visit our AR-15 & LR-308 Upper Build Kits page.
