So I drove over to their head quarters today and picked up my Billet matched Upper/Lower by LOKI Weapon Systems- this thing is AMAZING. Not sure what kind of rifle I am going to build but I know it will be bad ass.

Nice. How much do they run, and do they offer them in different finishes? I checked out the site, but the components sections is empty.

This is one of the first runs - my serial is in the double digits. They are about cranked up for full production. Honestly I traded services for the set so not sure the price. Last I remember they were offering different finishes but do not quote me on that - the guys are easy to get a hold of - usually there after lunch. Just ask for Erik and tell him Brandon sent ya.

someone wants $580 for a set here...http://www.tombstonetactical.com/catalog/loki/fenrir-m4-matched-upper-lower-receiver-multi-cal-black/

I might pay for a set like that if it was slickside. Guess I'll stick with Sundevil, 6061 or not.

Give them a buzz - if I remember correctly they were less than that - but I may be wrong.

I JUST got an email from the CEO - He told me right now their first run limited time pricing is $399 for a complete set.

Actually that is what surprises me - its not heavy at all.

As for the build goes - I run a forum for Oklahoma competition shooting - well we are doing sorta a contest where we poll our members and we are building the ULTIMATE ar based to their specs - then we are gonna auction it off - so stay tuned - this has potential to be both expensive and bad ass!!!!

lol wait a sec.. you are building an "ultimate" AR based on an entire forums idea on "ultimate"? lol.. you will never get them to agree on whats ultimate :P

I just built my personal ultimate a bit ago... Keep us a bit posted... or IM me a link to your forum, im interested to see how your forums ultimate build compares to mine!

...

anyways.. about that set. wow. i think i want a lower from them... who are those people? ill have to google them... i wonder if they can sweet talk Fail Zero into coating an upper for me... if they still did individual coatings i would buy that set today and ship it out to them for a build.

Well we are putting up random polls - and going to build it based on the MAJORITY - the whole idea is to do this - build it - get together BBQ put it together all get a chance to shoot it - then auction it off.

Figured a fun way to get together and make money at the same time.

Tell them they should thread the hole for the rear take down pin detent. Then include a shorter spring and set screw. This simple modification makes dissasembly of the stock soo much easier. You don't have that annoying little spring shooting over your shoulder when you loosen the stock.

Here is a thread describing what I mean much better.


Also it might be a good idea to chamfer the leading edge of the front pivot lug on the upper receiver so it blends in with the angled front of the lower better.

I actually 100% suggested this today - they def said they never thought of it. I think Tactical Innovations includes that in their lowers - its what made me think of it

Since they gone this far making a new combo upper lower, tell them to add the ambi bolt release too

I'd take a MEGA billet set WAY before this one, JMHO.

Make me a slickside and I will buy a set, damnit.

Looks good, as long as you don't want to switch out uppers or lowers... How the upper and lower fit together looks a lot like the Mega MA-10 or an armalite to me...
bsdubois00  [Member]

Yea - it is def proprietary but thats ok - its such a beauty i would never wanna break it up anyways. Plus the 3 lowers in the safe still need uppers so why break up this beauty LOL
bsdubois00  [Member]

Got some more info today on the Upper/Lower matching and they are indeed proprietary but the UPPER will fit on other lowers just with a gap. I will be going take a photo later and show everyone.
bsdubois00  [Member]

Just because people were curious - the upper will match up with a forged lower - just not a 100% full match but it is still fully functional

The front of the magwell is a nice feature if you use a magwell hold. Looks great, but I already got a Black Rain Ordnance matched set in the safe calling to be built up. Maybe next time....
bsdubois00  [Member]

I know - I use the magwell grip so I love it - I hate that we are going to auction this off - guess I may have to save my pennies and buy one for myself. I literally have it sitting on my desk and its just staring at me taunting me all day long

Yep, my thoughts exactly.









These new loki sets look like an industrial designer got to a block of aluminum before thinking about how to make it more functional and made it video-game-cool instead. No thanks.

I def respect your opinion - just curious - what part of the LOKI do you see as not functional?
