Looking to assemble your own AR but don’t want to go through the rigmarole of building a complete lower? Ruger has you covered with its new AR-Lower Elite.

A fully assembled AR lower receiver, the Ruger AR-Lower Elite features the company’s own Elite 452 AR trigger, which is a two-stage trigger with a smooth, crisp, 4.5 pound trigger pull. It boasts a 30 percent faster lock time over standard MSRs. Also included is a Magpul MOE SL stock and Magpul MOE grip.

According to the press release, the AR-Lower Elite is built from the same hard-coat anodized, CNC-machined, 7075-T6 forged lower receiver as the Ruger AR-556. It ships with an upgraded trigger and furniture, and includes pivot and takedown pins, bolt catch, magazine release, trigger guard, mil-spec buffer tube, buffer and spring. Simply slap on a complete, mil-spec upper receiver of your choice and you’ll be ready to rock.
