I have been likening Battle Arms Development’s ultralight AR-15 OIP project as an F1 racing team where the tech developed for the track, exentually trickles down to daily drivers. Well, “eventually” will be this Thanksgiving. That is when Battle Arms Development will drop their new BAD556-LW Lightweight 7075-T6 Receiver Set. The teaser pictures are jaw dropping.
The receivers and other parts used in the OIP project are only available as a complete build through Brentwood Gunsmithing. The BAD556-LW Lightweight 7075-T6 Receiver Set will be available to anyone!
How much weight does this shed compared to standard forged receivers?
No weight specified at all?
It hasn’t been specified yet (just a teaser). I’ll see what I can find. BAD is playing their cards close to their vest until their new site launches in November.
It will be interesting to see how these compare to the Mag Tactical Systems magnesium receivers.
