Sharp Bros Overthrow Receiver

CGB Editor Notes: Saw it on CGN first and had to have a post on it. I’m giving it a ‘thumbs up’.

This has been said before, but can be repeated: the AR-15 platform is really amazing.

The endless flow of ideas when it comes to designing new parts and painting them in even more endless ways lacks equivalent.

I am personally not too keen on Sharp Bros earlier creations like the Hellbraker, Warthog and The Jack but their new lower called Overthrow is really cool.

John Sharps, founder of Sharp Bros., teamed up with Rainer Arms and BDL Custom Finish and you can now see the end result.

In their own words:

This, my friends, is Overthrow. We have been fine-tuning the details on this one for long time, and we hope you dig the final product as much as we do. The receiver is an open magwell helmet design, featuring battle worn dents, sword gashes, and crack lines. Leave it anodized black, give it a Spartan style (maybe some 300-esque blood splatter?), do a Viking theme, … the customization possibilities with this one are endless.


OK, here we go with pictures below. THIS IS SPARTA!

The Overthrow – out of the CNC Machine.

Serial 00002.

And painted. It’s hard to tell what is painted and what is machined.

There will be more information available soon at

I’m sure you’re all reminded of the movie “300” from 2006.
