Brownells Launches BRN-180 Lower Receivers

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020

Brownells has just made building a homegrown AR-180 even easier with the release of the BRN-180 Lower Receivers to go with the Uppers they launched at last year’s SHOT Show.

Granted, they’ve introduced some new features like the Picatinny attachment at the rear of the receiver to accept stock systems, but over all, the BRN-180 Lower does a great job of giving the look and feel of the original. As you can see, this allows for multiple configurations, from pistols, to collapsible or folding stocks.

But the real treat is the upcoming stock from B5 Systems which is very similar to the original AR-180 stock.

Below is their press release for the new BRN-180 Lower Receivers.

• Accepts modern AR-15 components

“The BRN-180 and BRN-180M Lower Receivers were created to take full advantage of the contained recoil system of the BRN-180 Upper Receiver,” said Brownells Director of Product Management Paul Levy.  “The BRN-180 Lowers are available in a forged model, which is inspired by the contours of the original AR-180, and a billet, BRN-180M model, which has a modern profile and design”.

Brownells offers BRN-180 complete uppers in the following models:
BRN-180S 10.5″ barrel
BRN-180 16″ barrel
