The king of the AR receiver game has taken a plunge into something new: marketing a different series of limited-run Cerakoted build sets every month. 

We caught up with the fine folks from Kentucky-based Anderson Manufacturing at the NRA Annual Meetings last week in Indianapolis for the details on these new sets. 

The Anderson Cerakote Series is planned as pre-order only, with fulfillment beginning on the first day of the following month. Each month will feature a new design. At the end of the month, the pattern will be retired – never to be seen again.

The first Builder Set, the A-Palms, will be AM-15 platform specific, but the company plans to include its Kiger 9mm pistol, AM-9, and AM-10 models in the Cerakote series as well.

The A-Palms Builder Set will include an AM-15 Multi-Cal Receiver Set, 15-inch Free-Float Handguard (M-LOK compatibility, barrel nut, and hardware included), ejection port cover, trigger guard, end plate, castle nut, and buffer tube. Just add the barrel and LPK, etc., of your choice, and you are good to go. (Photo:
