Zel Custom Introduces Magazine-Fed .50 BMG Upper Receiver for AR-15s
Zel Custom Manufacturing introduces the Tactilite T2, a magazine-fed, bolt-action .50 BMG conversion for AR-15 style rifles. The T2 utilizes a side-mounted magazine design (similar to a Sten gun) on Zel Custom’s unique steel billet upper receiver. As a “firearms accessory”, the Tactilite T2 .50 BMG conversion kit requires no special paperwork, background check or waiting period.
“The T2 was developed in response to law enforcement feedback to our single-shot T1,” said Michael Brendzel, president of Zel Custom Manufacturing. “However, consumer demand has already exceeded expectations.”
The T2 receiver is CNC-machined from solid 4140 steel bar stock, heat treated for greater strength and durability, and features an integrated scope rail, for superior accuracy. The T2 comes standard with a 7075 aluminum quad-rail, black CeraKote finish and one 5-round Accuracy International magazine. Available options include choice of Mossberg or Lothar-Walther barrels, choice of barrel contour and choice of right- or left-handed receiver. Prices start at $2298.
Tactilite T2 and Tactilite T1 (single-shot) uppers are available from Zel Custom (www.tactilite.com), Brownell’s, RSR Group, AcuSport, Amchar Wholesale and Vance Law Enforcement Supply.
.416 Barrett and .338 Lapua models of the T2 are in the works.
