LANTAC RAVEN™ LA-N15™ Receiver Sets Available

The ultimate combination.
Featuring our UAR™ (Upper Advanced receiver) & LA-N15 Lower.
The patent pending SMOOTHCAM™ system features a domed head, low friction cam pin and special upper receiver cuts that offer ultra smooth operation.
With its blended cam recess the UAR™ upper is machined from Billet 7075-T6 certified aluminum and milspec, Type3, Class2, Deep Black, Hardcoat Anodized.
The UAR™ is a precision machined upper with a special proprietary bore that is ultra smooth with a roughness average in micro inches of 16, as opposed to standard bored or milled uppers that are 32-63, or higher.
This reduces bolt carrier friction and creates a much smoother operation.
Barrel nut threads, bore and barrel extension surfaces are all machined in one operation so that they are
perfectly concentric and perpendicular to the barrel and fixing assembly.
The cam pin recess has been carefully designed with a smooth surface that flows into the main reciprocation channel.
This allows our specially designed radial, domed head cam pin to move with the minimum of wear against these internal surfaces.

The CP-R360™ Cam Pin has no moving parts to break or lock up.
Machined from 17-4 PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 (45RC Approx) its head is polished for a super smooth finish. The cam pins circular head has a single flat face machined into it at the front so that it can be inserted into any bolt carrier without having to remove the gas key.
Two further flats are machined at 90 degrees to the front face that assist in reducing internal wear to the cam channel.
The unique domed head allows the cam pin to operate in a completely different position to a traditional pin, with the radius of the head curving away from the receivers internal surface, rather than forming a hard or sharp edge on its upper corner that causes wear.
Finished in its natural hardened state, copper/brass color.

Used in conjunction with our UAR™ upper and you have a complete, ultra smooth, low friction, minimum wear system.
M4 Feed ramps and front lug raised pad for exceptional receiver mating.

Package Includes CP-R360™ Domed head ultra smooth Cam Pin.

Our LA-N15™ Billet lower is precision machined from the same certifed Aerospace Grade 7075-T6 Alloy and features an internally flared magwell allowing for faster and more accurate seating of the magazine during high stress reloads.
Upper and Lower are a match fit with deep machine egraving and Multi Caliber marking for versatility.
Contemporary styling with intergrated ‘Winter’ style trigger guard and .156″ trigger and hammer pin holes.
Spotface cut to the takedown area allowing easier removal of the rear pin.

OpticsPlanet – Showing Gratitude To Our Troops With Military Discounts

The marginalizing of US Vets and Troops over the last decade and beyond is no secret, their poverty levels and suicide rates have skyrocketed to all-time highs with what seems like diminishing assistance from current limited resources. This sad state of affairs, along with extreme gratitude to those that serve has inspired OpticsPlanet.com over the past few years to take up cause for our Troops, and Law Enforcement as well.

 

History of OpticsPlanet Dedication to Troops:

Starting in 2015, OpticsPlanet.com created a campaign to raise charitable donations for service members and their families – called Gear Up for a Cause. It was a campaign that featured special offers and sales events designed to raise a charitable donation and awareness for Hope For The Warriors®. In 2017, the donation goal was $50,000, with a minimum of $20,000 guaranteed in donations.

Continuing the tremendous support, in addition to the yearly Gear Up for a Cause campaign, in 2016 OpticsPlanet’s Operation Gift campaign partnered with Operation Gratitude to help send more than 3,000 care packages to members of the armed forces serving across the world.

 

Current Support of Troops:

OpticsPlanet.com has continued their efforts in their supporting of the Military by offering a special Military appreciation discount to those who served or are serving in the armed forces, also included is Law Enforcement Personnel and Emergency First Responders. OpticsPlanet is doing it to thank those who serve and protect our country and community, putting their lives on the line for our safety.
