    first i saw a thread on here where a guy got a lower engraved...i can has a link?

    i am thinking of ordering a lower this morning so incase they ban them before i get around to getting one i can still build one...

    are different lowers only made to shoot a specific round?

    can someone point me in the right direction of a website to order a lower??

    lowers must be transfered to a FFL and sold there. Honestly, it's usually better to buy a lower from a local shop. It will help you establish a good business relationship with the shop (which will help service and pricing in the future). When ordering online, by the time you factor in the FFL transfer fees and shipping, you probably could have paid for the local lower and gotten it sooner, anyway.

    Everything other than the lower, feel free to order online.

    As for engraving, any local engraving place should technically be able to do it. Although not all will be willing to work on a firearm part.

    I've handled or seen a couple hundred peoples lowers at the various matches and 6 years of shot shows. One of the nicest I've seen are the Sun Devil which is a billet aluminum lower.

    I would get one but I already got 3 stags in the safe waiting for future projects

    A lower doesnt guarantee you that you're safe if there's a ban.
