With weight saving as the prime objective, 2A-Armament set out to build a lightweight solution for those looking for a solid platform to build on. The BALIOS-lite has all the same great features and aesthetics as the standard BALIOS sets, but incorporates a significant weight reduction.

The BALIOS-lite is perfect for those who participate in 3-gun, hunting, or any other shooting activity where weight is a concern. Both the upper and lower receivers are equally at home on a standard forged product from other vendors. The flared magazine well aids in rapid reloading, and the tapered transition under the charging handle prevents associated wear patterns from damaging the finish.

To aid in additional weight savings the forward assist has been eliminated but the port door cover on the upper receiver remains.

Compatibility Notice: Due to the blind hole design of the rear Port Door Rod Support "hole", Balios & Balios-Lite Upper Receivers are not compatible with the model of V7 Weapon Systems Port Door Rod which has one larger diameter end. This is evident by the fact that the larger end of the port door rod will protrude too far to the front causing it to make contact with the barrel nut and breaking when the barrel nut is installed. However, V7 and Vertex Ops are working to make a "straight" version of the V7 Port Door Rod which will work with both Balios and other upper receivers that have been designed with a blind hole rather than an open hole for the rear port door rod support. This V7 Port Door Straight Rod is expected to be available no later than mid-December 2014.

5 of 5 Amazing Detail September 27, 2016
Reviewer: BW from CA, United States  
This matched set has incredible detail and the fit/finish is flawless. So many little details, like the integrated tensioning screw for a tight fit between upper and lower, but the fit is so tight its not even necessary. I was glad to have a very tight fit on the upper with my barrel extension, may need to heat the upper to have it fully seat. Big plus in my book!

5 of 5 Great product super fast shipping July 13, 2016
Reviewer: CH from Grapevine, TX United States  
The fast shipping allowed me to get this before 41F. It wasn't the first product I've bought from VERTEX and it won't be the last.

5 of 5 The Best of the Best March 29, 2016
Reviewer: MOA from Bakersfield , CA United States  
In building a ultralight AR, it was awesome to connect with Vertex, getting the highest quality products in one place makes it very convenient. Vertex is one of the few places that actually has in stock what they advertise.  The sales staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

3 of 5 Great receiver set, subpar anodizing March 14, 2016
Reviewer: Adam from On Your Computer Screen  
Just wanted to mirror one of the other reviews, I bought the receiver set and BL rail because I wanted perfect fitment and never even thought that the color would be off. After spending $700+ on the 3 pieces, I must say I am highly disappointed that the black anodizing between the receiver set and rail doesn't match at all.

I would return the items but that would be too complicated and just cost me more money. If you care about your receiver set and rail having remotely similar anodizing, look elsewhere or be prepared to fork out more money on re-anodizing or cerakote.

Other than the colors not matching between receiver set/rail(big deal to me), the receiver itself is high quality and I would certainly recommend it, the only other competition to me would be the Battle Arms receiver set, and this one weights less and has better styling IMHO.
