Gonna go ahead and start my AR build which lower is the best out there?
Spikes? CMMG? Doublestar?
I really like the sun devil and the other billet lowers out there. That is if you were going to spend the extra bit of loot.
IMO: whichever is cheapest
Lowers are all the same. The odds of getting an out-of-spec or "bad" one are pretty damn slim.
for the money, those things are awesome
Unless you want to be baller, either the cheapest or the one whose logo you like best.
another statement I totally agree with
That's what my rifle is; good bang for the buck
larue is making lowers now, but they are $250.
i've used several dpms lowers with no problems and a stag. that's as far as my pesonal experience goes.
I saw something once where it explained who actually makes the lowers that are sold under different brands. It was funny, some of the most expensive lowers were made by the same company that also made the lowers that were the least expensive. For the most part, you're buying a name.
is this a shortened version of what you saw?
Lewis Machine & Tool
Continental Machine Tool
Rock River Arms
Mega Machine Shop
Sun Devil forged billet receivers
Yeah, it was similar to that.
i have 2 cmmg lowers.one complete.one stripped.very good fit and finish
I'd buy any cheap one that has a good reputation and good customer service.
So waht's the deal with Del-Ton? good?
doesn't it make you all warm and fuzzy inside to know that you cmmg lowers are exactly the same as:
I went with:
because I liked the logo, the deep black finish, and the fact that they have a good rep.
Pretty much though, pick whatever you like. They're all fairly close to identical.
mega is nice. their logo is pretty cool. i got a stag one time just because i liked the deer. i hear a lot of people dont' like the deer. oh well.
Semi-agree. Lowers are the place to economize. I have shot the Cav Arms, Bushmaster, Colt, DPMS, Stag lowers and they all worked well.
Save your money for the upper.
oh teh noz!!!
really? getting more people into AR's? how dare they! to stag arms.
i hear ya. but i'm a big hunter. i've got deer antlers and bear heads decorating my living room, so i dig the logo.
to each their own, i don't mind either way.
just so more people get into EBR's, its all good.
FL ain't far. come on up and help me thin out some does.
Just used a mega upper & lower in my 6.8spc build. Probably going to pick up another pair for a SBR build.
