“I am SPARTAN ” Spike’s Tactical lower Part 1

When you are building a rifle and need a lower with some kick ass thyme to show off at the range! Then you need to turn to Spike’s Tactical!

One day after buying my “**th rife” I was thinking that one of these days I am going to build my own rife.  The way I want it from the ground up.  I mean, yes some of the custom rifles you buy in the gun shop are great!  Or there are the ones that you have to change out the furniture on the rife to make it your own.  I wanted to do my own rifle, my own way and with a theme.  So, I researched out where to buy some cool lowers on-line.  I figured out I had this certain picture in my head of what I wanted to do with my rife. “The theme,” it would be and make it have certain Easter eggs on it representing my life in the military.   I noticed that the custom lower I wanted was from Spikes Tactical.

This brand new Spartan lower coated that Spike’s Tactical had would go perfect with the handguard I was having custom made.  I reached out to a Spike’s sales person (who was awesome help by the way) and talked with them about all the cool lowers I saw on their website.  They have build kits for the lower and complete lowers.  Depending on how far you want to go yourself to build it.  After talking to the sales person I bought the Spartan lower “stripped” and had it shipped to my local gun store.  Man!  Let me tell you, once I went to the gun store to pick it up, it was better in person then on the website.  I was getting so excited about this!

Let’s begin, I pulled the lower out of the box and with the MIL-A-8625F type III Class 2 hard coat anodized finish on the lower made it perfect for the many rounds that will be put through it.  The anodized finish made it stand out as I filled in the lower with the springs, pins and hammer to make it ready to fire.  With the Spartan Cerakote Spartan Helmet as the magazine well would match my handguard in color.  I decided to have the safety switch colored as the same color as the helmet.  So I had it colored as you can see below.  With this lower only weighting 13 oz. and measuring total length with the butt stock fully extended at 17 inches, makes it just perfect with my 10 1/2 inch barrel.
