The FMK AR1 eXtreme is a multi-caliber, Mil-Spec, AR15 Lower Receiver, manufactured in the USA of a high impact proprietary composite polymer. The key to a good AR build is the lower receiver and the AR1 eXtreme is the strongest composite polymer lower on the market. Made in America, it comes with a lifetime warranty.
The big news is a weight savings of 4.4 ounces. The AR1 eXtreme weighs in at 4.3oz. A milspec lower weighs 8.7 oz. If you are looking for a light weight build, this is a great place to start.
I believe that a high strength polymer AR lower will build a great gun. The precision is evident through the entire lower and the built in trigger guard makes the build that much easier. I will be putting this lower into a build which will be light but I am not going for an extreme light weight build.
- Superior strength – Built with proprietary composite polymer to withstand extreme conditions.
- Unmatched durability – When most lowers dent or break the AR1 eXtreme bounces back to shape.
- Extremely lightweight – 4.3oz • Accepts all standard MIL SPEC uppers up to .50 Beowulf
- Compatible with most current AR15 lower parts kits, grips and stocks.
- Unconditional lifetime warranty.
- Custom engraving – “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
The AR1 eXtreme has a metal plate embedded under the selector on the right side of the receiver with the serial number.
