As many of you are already aware, Cavalry Arms and Castle Arms are both new to the firearms industry this year... We have worked very closely with each other to do our best for the members of the firearms community, by offering incredible products at awesome prices. Cavalry Arms has taken a great financial risk in developing the first 100% polymer AR-15 receivers... Not only are they polymer, but they are available in several colors as well! While they have been a bit slow to catch on, Shawn ([i]Cav Arms[/i]) is offering a lifetime replacement warranty with his CAV-15 lowers... I've yet to see that type of guarantee for any product in any industry! Those of you that are not familiar with Cavalry Arms, should take a moment and visit their website at [url]www.cavalryarms.com[/url] -- while their products might not be for everyone, you would be amazed at the number of female shooters that love the option of having an AR that no longer looks like one of those "evil assault weapons". For those that enjoy something that is a bit different, yet more comfortable, the CAV-15's were designed with YOU in mind. Since these receivers have the pistol grip and stock molded into them, it was a natural to make the grip a bit more ergonomic, and add 1" to the length of pull. This has created a more balanced and controllable firearm! For always being there when we at Castle Arms have had questions and/or needed a *RUSH* order, we would like to thank the guys at Cavalry Arms and wish them a Happy Holidays... We also look forward to a very long and prosperous business relationship! To all of you here at AR15.COM, I would like to share with you a letter we received from Cav Arms earlier today: [img]http://www.castle-arms.com/pix/cavarms.jpg[/img]

Wow. Very impressive. Maybe I will have to give those lowers a second look.

Agreed, I was Shawn's partner for this years gift exchange and he hooked me up very well. And as stated, by offering a lifetime warrantee on his lowers he pretty much dispells any hesitation to break the norm and try the polymer reciever.

Although I may sound like a broken record,I'll reiterate here again...I had Shawn (Garryowen) of Cav-Arms build for me a Cav-15 rifle for my father's (In Texas) 71st birthday. Now my father is no slouch in knowledge of firearms...He Loves that rifle!!! [:D] Also, he and an LE friend that he Proudly showed it to commented on the ergo "feel" of the pistol grip. Ok...Ok...I'll get one for myself [8D]

I don’t think you’ll have any problems selling the CAV-15 to the folks of this site. However, many armchair engineers may be skeptical of the fact the lower is a polymer. I think that if Shawn published some data of the plastics’ physical data it may dispel a lot of unfounded distrust in the material. Example, use the analogy of defining an aluminum lower. You would be interested if it’s, say, 7075-T6 or 6061-T6. Was it forged, machined billet or a casting? Similarly, what are the properties of the polymer? Is it a thermoset or thermoplastic? Have him provide some data on ultimate tensile and elongation and durometer. Is it fiber reinforced? How was it manufactured? Was it RTM molded, matched metal molded etc. Get the idea? All play a big role when selecting materials during the design phase of any mechanical device your going to trust your life to. Good luck to both companies. It is so good to see people taking on this business in the current environment that firearms manufactures seemingly are struggling with.

Actually, yes. One of them is. [:D] The others are "DeWalt" yellow, a green one, and a black one too. I can't say enough good things about the product or the company. You won't go wrong with Cavalry Arms.

I got a Green One![:D] First in my block, has'nt caught on yet in my neck of the woods, but everyone likes the color.

People who poo-poo these receivers are the same types that poo-poo the Glock or the HK USP. Whatever...[rolleyes]

WTF is your problem? Do you or have you ever owned one? I happen not to like Glocks but what is your point?

Beagles, take a deep breath and then reread GeneStoner's post. I think you may have misunderstood it. He's also a happy CAV-15 owner...

CAV-15 lower just moved from the want list to the need list. Anyone got a pic of a "Training Blue" lower?
Link Posted: 12/3/2001 10:09:30 PM EDT
TREETOP! Sorry...and thanks..Yes I think I get it now! I have to learn not to post or try to read on 4 hours sleep and being up now since 3am Monday morning... Gene...I'm sorry AR15.com....I'm sorry Mom?, Dad? I'm sorry I should have been a better kid! Night night...bye John
Link Posted: 12/3/2001 10:11:40 PM EDT
Just to add...I like CAV-15's but I still don't care for Glocks... John I have dealt with Shawn several times and I think he definitely one of the "good guys" out there folks! Take care...

Do you guys make handguards as well? If so how about some handguards to match the lower. I would like to see an AR with a white lower and white handguards; sort of a winter camo theme.
Link Posted: 12/4/2001 12:23:52 AM EDT
Link Posted: 12/4/2001 2:16:42 AM EDT
We should have M4 looking handguards in the next couple of week

Will they be strong enough to drive a truck over, like the lower? (and no, this question isn't a joke)z

... I didn't poo poo them but rather I had some legitimate questions. What is wrong with answering those questions?

But most of us want SHORTER stocks not longer ones. A1 length or a bit less.

I agree. It is possible, though, to shorten the CavArms buttstock. Someone here at AR15.com has already done it.

How about Milwaukee Tool red? Just kidding. When I get some dough I'm buying the yellow to match my truck or the white for the winter camo effect. And, maybe the purple for the wife...

What are the chances of a Cav Arms LEGP someday?

CAV ARMS did create a lower with "AR15.COM" serial numbers to be sold as an accessory with the 2001 LEGP. These were OD Green, and we do have a couple of them left for $300ea complete... These also have two stage triggers installed, as opposed to the standard single-stage. Call or email me for details!

BTW- The chubby guy in the background bump firing a Mak-90 is me.... That was a fun day we need to do that again! John Oh, and I got to shoot the CAV-15 there, too! Very Sweet! I like the feel of it much better than the tradational stocked AR. It's on my Christmas list! [:D]

AntiUSSA, Can you throw me an email, I am also interested in the AR15.com lower, but since I am not in IL, will need to talk with my ffl dealer. Thanks, Ice

frown Crap... If my wife sees this, she's going to want purple furniture so her AR matches her purple STI open gun... Anybody know the code for the dollar sign with wings icon?

ICE: It's easier if YOU email me and let me know what you are looking for... STIPILOT: I have both Barbie Pink and Barney Purple stripped lowers in stock...

Two quick questions: 1. Can us PRK folks order one? 2. Truck sure, but have you run one over with your Humvee? They look way cool to me. Matt
