    Not really I'd like a $900 piston upper to put on my $80 stag lower.

    I'd really like to know where people are getting $80 brand name lowers, i can't find squat online under 100, except essential arms, which isn't bad either, but you know what i mean

    an AR lower is an AR lower but different manufacturers can vary with fit and finish on them.

    yep fit and finish vary depending on the company. They all work and for a plinker an essential arms lower is just fine and cheap price. I wouldn't use them on any of my work rifles but wouldn't hesitate to toss one of them on a goofing around or truck rifle.

    so what, in your opinion, would be a great bang for your buck stripped lower?

    essential arms again is a decent lower and you can't beat the price. If you want a bigger brand name, Stag, DPMS, RRA are all around the same price. I have a stag on my coyote hunter and the fit is very good, very little rattle. Got it for $100 bucks.
    when you are in the $100-150 range, it's mostly the same with just a different name stamped on the side. Bushmaster is a bit more but you are paying for the name. Higher end stuff like Tactical Customs and Gators you get into higher tolerances, no seams, everything is polished but you are also paying close to double what you would pay for a Stag. There are even higher end lowers like JP and Les Baer used for precision match shooting (mostly bragging rights at the range for those)

    i'm not that hell bent on brand names, i just want something that would work well on a target rifle, but i also don't want to spend a ton on something that is only separated by cosmetics

    Moral rammifications . . . you'll be more likely to shoot up people with it . . . no wait according to all the laws passed one would think the more expensive the gun the more dangerous it is to society. So cheap parts and cheap guns are safe.

    I guess what i would like is something that is superior quality when it comes to fit (I don't care what the dumb thing looks like) but I don't want to be paying for a name. For example, i know that CMT/Stag makes Fulton Armory lower receivers, but Fulton charges 50 bucks more for theirs. This is pretty much what i want to avoid. I would love to get my hands on a MEGA gator, but they havent been producing any (since at least april). So i guess i'm at a loss, i have to buy off the internet since i don't really know any reputable places to buy them locally, and gun shows seem to be a waste of time But the higher quality lowers cost an arm and a leg if you go online. being on a budget, this really sucks.
