The pictures are not the best but you get the idea.

The fit and machine quality is perfect! It fits our billet lower like a glove, it also fits a forged lower just the same.

Both the upper and lower are CNC machined from 7075 Billet and will be Mil-Spec Type III Hardcoat anodized.

The first batch of Billet uppers are being Anodized right now, the Bio-Hazard Billet lowers are being machined right now.

They should be done in a couple of weeks. I don't have exact pricing yet but the lowers will be in the $200-$250 price range, the uppers will be in the $190-$225 price range.

I forgot to mention to you guys that the production Billet lowers will have Ambi Bolt releases! Trey from KAC was kind enough to allow us to use the idea.

Where does one obtain one of these biohazard billet lowers/ uppers?

Nice. Looks like you'll give Mega a run for their money.

What's up with the unfinished warthog? Is it stainless? When can we expect any warthogs in stock?

Here is a plated one.

They will only be like that on the Prototypes. At the time they were machined we didn't have the ATF variance yet.

I like that un-plated look on the upper. Really sets it apart from all other. Will you sell the un plated warthogs?

That looks nice. Is that a DD light 7.0 and a 7.5 inch barrel? I like the looks of it with the Warthog on the end.

What is the weight difference with your billet parts versus the typical forged alluminum?

I must say I really like them! I no a lefty upper is out of the question, but you intrigued me when you said KAC let you use their ambi bolt release...what about their ambi mag release (the one with the paddle behind the mag release)? I must say if you can swing that one I will sell off all of my lowers and restock with yours!

Damn Tom....

That's the nicest upper and billet lower I've seen yet.... well.... the lower is a close 2nd to my MPL lower.
Totally sick... you guys outdid yourselves. If I was in the market for another rifle... I just found the upper and
lower for it.

Very nice..........will this billet upper also be available as a complete upper? And will the final products(lower), have 'Spikes' or 'Seekins'?

Why 'Warthog'? Was it to compete with Novekse's 'Flaming Pig'?

Yes we will be building complete uppers with them. The finial product will be marked Spike's Tactical. The name Warthog was no way intened to compete with the Flaming Pig.

Tom,

Will the biohazard lowers be available in forged or in billet only?

Also, as asked a few posts ago, is there a list for the biohazard lower or should we just wait for it to show up on the website?

Thanks!

Do the dimensions on the front of the upper receiver allow for installation of a LaRue Tactical handguard with the keeper?
