Spike’s Tactical is a premier firearms manufacturer based in Florida. Here, we take a look at the company and its main products, and the opinion that people have of it. The company’s plans for the future and products are also discussed here.

More about Spike’s Tactical
Being a relatively small company, Spike’s Tactical employs a limited number of employees. The company’s declared objective is to provide high-quality products to their customers at the most competitive prices in the market.
As far as the company’s products are concerned, the offers range from rifles, pistols and ST suppressors to different parts and accessories. However, the company’s most celebrated product is the Spike’s Tactical rifle.
Spike’s Tactical makes AR/M4 rifles that are manufactured according to military specifications and designed for law enforcement. Some names of their AR-15 variants are the ST LE Carbine, the ST Compressor SBR, the ST Pure Estrogen Med-Length, and the ST Black Assassin. With prices ranging from $950-$1,950 (depending on variant), the Spike’s rifles have gained rapid fame, especially because its competitors such as the Colt LE6920 and the Bravo Company MFG cost around $1200 on average for their basic model. In addition to this, the Spike’s Tactical rifle comes with a “manufacturer’s lifetime warranty”.
Therefore, even though Spike’s Tactical is not a very well-known manufacturer for many people, the introduction of this new rifle has helped the company gain a competitive edge in the market, contributing thus, to setting the company as one of the best AR/M4 manufacturers in the industry.
The arms manufacturer’s mission as explained by its CEO, Angela Register, is to “strive to build the highest quality products and offer them at the best possible price to the consumer.” Register also emphasizes the company’s broad niche and promises best quality products by stating, “It doesn’t matter if you are simply a gun enthusiast, a competitive 3 gun shooter or a military or law enforcement professional, our rifles will serve you well and won’t let you down when it counts and we guarantee it.”
Spike’s Tactical Products
Here is a list of the major products available with Spike’s Tactical:
Spike’s Tactical has set itself as a serious manufacturer of rifles. Its AR/M4 “Spike’s Tactical” has become one of the most renowned firearms in the market. Shooters have expressed their satisfaction with the rifle because it combines the accuracy, smoothness, elegance of design, and affordability, in addition to the fact that the rifles are manufactured according to military specifications.
In addition to rifles, Spike’s Tactical also manufactures and sells pistols. The company provides the Spike’s Tactical ST-15 LE Pistol at $895. This firearm, just like rifles from the same arms manufacturer, is Mil-spec compliant and is backed by the company’s lifetime warranty.
This arms manufacturer offers four types of ST Suppressors. These include MRS and LRS suppressors. The prices range between $699.00 and $999.00. Here is the list of the company’s Suppressor MRS-1 (5.56 cal) at $699.00

Parts and Accessories
The parts and accessories that the company offers have the same level of quality as the company’s main products. Every item is made according to military specifications, and most of them have the company’s lifetime warranty.
Gear of different sizes and affordable prices is also available with Spike’s Tactical. These include T-shirts, hats, patches, gear bags, gun cases and many more. Their new products in this section include many spider cutouts priced at $5.00.
The specials section offers adult and baby T-shirts in addition to fake cans and other products. The company now offers these products at special prices -20% to 25% off on the initial price. However, the company specifies that, unlike its other products, items belonging to this section of the store are not returnable.
In 2013, Spike’s Tactical joined the movement against the controversial anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment policies that have been discussed across the US. As a result, Spikes Tactical and other arms manufacturers and companies such as LaRue Tactical and Olympic Arms decided to team up and limit their firearm businesses in states where citizens have very limited access to arms.
The company has voiced its objection to this policy and promised not to sell some items to law enforcement agencies, government agencies, counties and cities where restrictive gun control laws are enabled.
There is an almost unanimous agreement among people who have purchased items made by Spike’s Tactical that the products are good. The reviews available on the Internet show that most users are satisfied with their firearm purchases.
Richard from Santa Clarita, California reviews the Spikes Tactical enhance lower receiver on Yelp by stating, “I love the product so much. I got this in a gun store in California. I also ordered a Spike’s upper receiver for my Spike’s lower and it should come in very soon.” He also adds, “not only are Spike’s product great, as I have tried them out before, but their service is definitely the best. Thank you Spike’s Tactical staff for a fantastic job and please keep up the GREAT work!”
While it’s true that almost every single review on the Internet is positive, one might stumble upon some negative reviews as is the case with this customer, nicknamed “Grape Drank”, on The High Road forum, who claims he bought a Spike’s Tactical firearm with a defective buffer tube, and that they refused to even “look at it” when he reported the problem.
Spike’s Tactical seems to be looking for more opportunities to diversify its firearm products. This is why the arms manufacturer is always releasing new models. For instance, in addition to its different kinds of firearms like the new $1,369.00 rifle ST Pure Estrogen Mid-Length, the company’s products featured in October 2014 include other items and accessories such as hammers, rail accessories, and MagPul MOE Handguards. Furthermore, the company is planning to release a new Ti bolt carrier.
Spikes Tactical products combine accuracy, smoothness and elegance of design, affordability, all decorated with very intriguing spider logos. This is what grants them an immensely competitive edge in the market. In fact, many of the people who have had a chance to try the company’s products say that they equal or even exceed the quality of their competitors’ products.
The company’s plans for the future prove that it’s gaining ground on the market. With a rapidly-growing base of clients and an increasing demand on the company’s products, Spike’s Tactical is here to stay.
