I suspect that one look at the Sharps Bros. Hellbreaker AR-15 Lower Receiver will result in people either wondering why in the world there is nose art on an AR-15 receiver or wondering why in the world their AR-15 receiver doesn’t have nose art! It certainly isn’t for everyone (I’m not even sure it’s for me) but it is definitely unique.
Apart from the nose art inspired molded shark feature, the Hellbreaker has everything you like to see in a lower. It is machined from 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized. The magazine well is nicely beveled to speed reloads and the over sized integral trigger guard is contoured to match the unique shape of the magazine well. It is “MULTI” caliber marked and has pictogram selector markings. It can accept all mil-spec parts.
A friend of the blog called me about the Hellbreaker a few days ago and I was really glad to hear that they were going to be available soon. In spite of the fact that in August, 2012 Sharps Bros. was attempting to raise the funds necessary to bring the Hellbreaker to market via a crowd funding website but the website shut down the campaign because it was firearm related. I was following their progress then and even if I wasn’t sure how I felt about the appearance of the Hellbreaker, I can’t help but root for someone when something like that happens.
