Balios Lite Gen 2 Pistols Are a Dream Come True

Boise, ID (Apr. 12, 2018) – The Balios Lite Gen 2 pistols offer an incredibly light, yet stable, hybrid platform. They are a dream come true for advanced shooters seeking an AR that is lighter than anything else on the market while delivering the highest performance and durability standards imaginable.

The pistols have been a major seller for 2A Armament and they have updated for 2019 to ship with the 2A Regulated Bolt Carrier and the SB Tactical SBA3 Pistol Brace. Everything is machined and made by firearm enthusiasts in Boise, Idaho.

The Balios 2A Lite is designed to provide a serious tactical advantage. Shockwave technology stabilizes the shot while the lightweight design and perfect grip maximize responsiveness. Shooters can turn on a time and setup shots extremely fast while still delivering an accurate shot.

The trigger sensitivity also comes with the option for a light or heavy hammer spring. This small detail will ultimately customize the pressure required to shoot, making you more effective by building a more or less sensitive trigger.  

A major contributor to the unrivaled build is the intensive machining and detailed design attributed to each piece of the firearm. The lower and upper receiver are both 7075-T6 billet. The lower has a type-III anodized hard coat that adds incredible durability. The patent-pending regulated bolt carrier utilizes a fully adjustable gas system which is machined using a QPQ process to increase corrosion resistance.

The Gen 2 Balios Lite Pistols are simply too hard to pass up for any serious tactical shooter. The entire platform is a work of art.
