XS Sights has a new armorers block for AR platforms. The XS AR Upper & Lower Receiver Armorers Block is designed to allow gunsmiths and do-it-yourself enthusiasts to hold an AR-15/M4, AR-10, SR-25, or DPMS GII receiver in a bench-mounted vise to assemble, modify, or maintain almost every AR-pattern modern sporting rifle available.
According to XS Sights Marketing Manager Addison Monroe, “Most armorers blocks will only fit one specific style AR rifle. Our Gen 2 block provides versatility, allowing the user to work on upper and lower receivers of almost any AR-pattern rifle. It’s virtually a one-size-fits-all solution.”
Made in the USA from 6061 T6 aluminum, the versatile, durable, and reliable XS Armorers Block comes with pins to lock in the receiver and fitment screw for the AR-15 lower. To allow bracing into the magwell of AR-10 lowers, XS offers a 3D-printed adaptor plate for purchase. For those who prefer to print their own, access to prints for the adaptor plate are available free of charge at xssights.com. The Armorers Block works with a DPMS-patterned .308, DPMS GII, Armalite Rifle, and standard AR-15/10-pattern rifles.
