Genesis CNC is proud to offer our Gen-2 80% 308 Lower Receiver and 308 Stripped Upper Receiver with the intent to provide the market with increased compatibility and options across the board.
Our after market products will allow current owners of LMT® / KAC™ / La Rue™ / Les Baer™/ Armalite™ 308 rifles to add another compatible Upper Receiver and build on their platform. Generally speaking, this has not been a readily available option.
In designing the Genesis 308 Upper Receiver, great care has been taken to ensure a high degree of precision. With special attention taken in the barrel extension area. The precision machining in the face of the barrel extension seat and bore diameter will allow the Customer to build a more precise rifle.
With our Gen-2 308 Upper Receiver, the current owners of the above-mentioned high-end rifles now have the option to change the configuration of their rifle to meet their needs. Whether a Customer wishes to set up for competitive shooting, Hunting, or set up a Long Range Precision Rifle without having to purchase a complete new rifle.
With our new Gen-2 80% 308 Lower Receivers the rifle-building enthusiast is now able to build up from scratch a second Lower which is compatible with the above mentioned manufacturers, many of whom do not offer their Lowers by themselves.
In this respect, our Gen-2 80% Lower Receiver offer the customer another option, which until now, has not been readily available in the market.
The Gen-2 80% Lower Receiver creates the option for current owners of Armalite™ 308 rifles to convert their rifles to accept PMAGs® and other SR series magazines. Our Gen-1 80% Lower Receiver required an Armalite® Lower Parts Kit, Armalite™ AR-10A® Bolt Stop, and AR-10A® Magazine Catch. In contrast, we have designed our Gen-2 80% 308 Lower Receiver to accept a DPMS™ Lower Parts Kits, with the exception of the rear take-down pin.
Generally, this design change not only creates significant cost savings for the customer but also the DPMS™ Lower Parts Kits are more readily available for purchase.
In addition, our Gen-2 80% Lower and Upper Receiver Set will allow the “do it yourself” rifle building enthusiast the opportunity to begin their project with precision machined 7075-T6 billet parts perfectly suitable as a foundation for any configuration the customer desires.
