Tactical Innovations T15 Lower Receiver

Although I do not recall how I initially discovered the Tactical Innovations T15 Lower Receiver, what I do remember is that the features and price point caught my eye.  For several years I’ve been installing set screws to hold the  take down detent pin and spring in my lowers so when I saw that TI included this feature already, I decided to take a closer look at their T15 lower.

As advertised, the T15 “includes features that are generally only offered on higher priced billet receivers.”  The second feature that got my attention was the built in upper receiver tensioning screw.  Many people install wedges which take up some of the play that can occur between the upper and lower receivers.  Adding the tentioning screw eliminates the need for that wedge and even improves on it by being adjustable.  If you are in the market for a good lower receiver, do yourself a favor and click the above link so you can read down the list of features this lower has.

The quality of this receiver is equal to or better than any other receiver I have ever worked with.   We used one of these on the Precision Rifle we are currently raffling off and to be honest, I can’t recall another receiver that had such a great fit with everything we added to it.   The finish was also a perfect match for the LAR Grizzly OPS-4 Upper we used and the two meshed together brialliantly without need to adjust the tensioning screw.  I have 2 more stripped T15′s waiting to be built and I’m unable to find a single flaw with any of them.

A number of AR shooters, myself included, like to grip the mag well when shooting.  There are even a handful of mag well grip type products available to enhance this kind of use.  The one I prefer is the FAB Defense Mag Well Grip which is imported by The Mako Group.  The down side to this specific grip is that it does not fit a lot of the lowers on the market without some modification via a Dremel tool.  I brought one of these grips to the 2010 SHOT Show and tried it out on at least one lower from every manufacturer who was there.  To my suprise, it only fit a few and the forged T15 was one of them.

Retail price on these lowers is $124.99 but they do go on sale occasionally through TI’s website.  In fact, as I was looking up the product URL, I noticed they are currently being offered for only $99.99.  Although I’ve recently seen a number of sub $100 lowers, in my honest opinion, not one of them can touch the T15 for quality and features.
