First Look: UAR Standard AR-15 Lower
Building an AR-style rifle or pistol is a popular hobby with many shooters in the United States. Unbranded AR offers a lower receiver that is affordably priced and can be had with a variety of custom engraving options. This mil-spec receiver might be just what you need for your next build.
The UAR Standard AR-15 Lower is a forged lower made of 7075-T6 aluminum. Most AR lowers are made of 7075-T6, an aluminum alloy known for its durability and strength created with a special tempering process. This alloy remains relatively light, and the lower receiver weighs in at only 9 ounces.
The receiver is hard coat anodized using the Mil-Spec 8625 Type 3 Class 2 treatment. This treatment gives the receiver a very durable finish that should provide a lifetime of hard treatment.
Unbranded AR manufactures the UAR Standard AR-15 Lower in the United States. It is designed to be compatible with all other AR parts that are built to military specification. This is a complete lower that requires transfer through an FFL.
Custom engraving on these receivers is offered through an easy-to-use ordering interface. You are able to add any text or image file that can be added to the sides of the receiver. Each side can have a unique engraving. Also, the engravings are offered in two depths: surface and deep. The deep engraving meets the BATFE standards for marking requirements at a 0.003” depth. The engraving options add up to two weeks to the delivery time, but give you the opportunity to create a truly unique firearm.
The suggested retail price of this AR receiver is $99.99. However, the company is currently offering a standard discount of $20, bringing the cost down to just $79.99. Engraving is an additional fee, but the company does offer discounts on larger quantities starting at only 10 units.
