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.

US Tactical 80% Lower
US Tactical 80% Lower Receiver is forged from 7075-T6 aluminum for a superior custom build. Precision-milled from the high quality forgings of Anchor Harvey. Operations left to be completed include fire control/trigger group milling, trigger pin, hammer pin, trigger slot, and the safety selector hole. This is not an FFL item and requires machining to complete. These Are The Best Of The Best In 80% Lowers. Returns will not be accepted once the receiver is modified in any way.
80% Lowers can be made in many different materials that each have their benefits in ease of manufacturing and overall finish when complete.
Particularly 7075-T6 Forged Aluminum is what the classic AR-15/M-16 were originally made out of. The suffix "-T6" is an indicator of how the Alloy was heat treated to give it improved strength and corrosion resistance, before bluing or finishing the lower with a cerakote or anodizing.
Many 80% AR-15 Receivers will be made from Forged Aluminum 7075-T6, 6061-T6, and 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.
Product info: The US Tactical 80% Lower is forged in Freeport, Illinois by Anchor Harvey and is precision machined into an 80% lower and comes in an unfished state so you can customize it to your liking. Created for the AR-15 you will be able to use household tools to complete this build within hours.

15" M-Lok Handguard
One of the most important parts of your build is the handguard. Freefloat handguards have become increasingly popular for duty and sport-shooting builds. Handguards serve a major function of being a heatshield for the barrel, protecting the shooter's hand during use, improving ergonomics, making the rifle more comfortable to wield & handle. And mounting lights, laser systems, sights, & grips. These handguards will allow you the flexibility to outfit your AR-15 build to whatever suits your needs.
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.
