Why is the lower so tight on my upper? The CAV15 lower will be tight when you first install it onto your lower. That is by design and normal. Over time and as you attach and detach the upper from the lower as well as being attached overtime the lower will loosen some. This maintains the take down pin does not roll out while in use.
How much does the GWACS Armory CAV-15 MKII lower receiver weigh? A stripped lower which comes with pivot and takedown pins is 1 lb 5 oz. A fully populated CAV-15 with the trigger group, carbine buffer and buffer spring installed weighs in at only 1lb 12 oz. Back to top
What uppers work on the CAV-15 AR15 lower receiver? Any Standard AR15 upper receiver will work with the CAV-15. Because of the proprietary magazine well design the CAV15 will accept 45 ACP grease gun magazines with an insert for the application of a 45 ACP upper. Back to top
What lower parts kit works in the CAV-15? Any standard AR15 parts kit will work in the CAV-15. You will not require the pivot and take down pins nor the springs and detents. You will not require the pistol grip washer and bolt. You will not require the trigger guard and the trigger pins. Back to top
What buffer and buffer spring should I install in the CAV-15? Standard carbine direct impingement or op rod upper will function great with the standard buffer (3oz) and carbine buffer spring. GWACS Armory manufactures and sells two carbine buffers models both come with springs. The GWACS Armory standard carbine buffer and spring at 3oz and a silent red anodized 3oz for greater performance. You can also install the H2 carbine buffer to slow the cyclic rate. If you are using a 45 ACP blow back upper you will need a 7 ounce weight and longer length buffer that is offered on our web site. If you are building a 458 SOCOM you will need to use the stiffer carbine length spring that is included with the 458 SOCOM upper. Back to top
The procedure begins with firing one round, then cleaning the chamber and bore before firing the next round. This should be repeated for the first twenty five (25) rounds. The next step is firing ten (10) rounds followed by the chamber, bore and lower receiver cleaning. This should be repeated until one hundred (100) rounds have been fired.
Following this process will help insure proper function and increase your accuracy. After the initial break in, it will still be necessary to perform routine maintenance on your rifle to keep it functioning properly.

We have one lower with nearly 60,000 rounds and it is still running great. It was also run over by a truck accidentally. We make the CAV-15 with Dupont Nylon 6 with glass fill.
