Rainier Arms’ new battle ready Overthrow Stripped Lower Receiver is in pre-order status, according to the company who showcased the design at TriggerCon.
Designed and produced by Sharps Bros., the lower features an open mag well helmet design with battle worn dents, sword gashes and crack lines for that war weary look.
Machined top to bottom from 7075-T6 aluminum, the lower boasts peak-strength corrosion-resistance with a hard coat anodized black finish. The Overthrow receiver offers full compatibility with all mil-spec internal parts, all other aftermarket mil-spec upper receivers and GI standard issue magazines as well as PMags.
Tipping scales at 11.5 ounces, Rainier says the lower’s customization possibilities are endless.
“Leave it anodized black, give it a Spartan style, a Viking theme, Boba Fett, you name it,” the company said on its website.
The Overthrow is currently offered as a pre-order, with special pricing listed at $269.99. Consumers should line up an FFL prior to purchase as federal law requires lowers ship to FFL dealers.
We got in two of our best-selling Turkish imports from Landor Arms – the AR-style LND-117 shotgun and the bullpup BPX 902 – to give them a whirl on the range and see if the reliability could be paired with the affordable price.
Marlin once claimed their Model 39 as the eldest continually produced, shoulder-fired rifle of all time. Though that record ended when the Marlin brand was parted-off to Ruger, the rimfire world is anticipating a return of this classic.
