    Traded in my 9mm USP for a brand new G19, even trade. Also picked up this lower for $70, it's made by Sharps Mil Spec. Has anyone heard of it? It says "ShARps - 15" on one side, on the back it has "The Sharps Rifle Company"

    I figure for $70, if it sucks I'm not going to cry about it.

    if I recall the Sharps were like $55 or so, but after adding shipping it's about right. you might have paid a few bucks too many, but nothing to worry about.

    No clue. That's why I was asking, this will be my first build.

    a lower is a lower, AFAIK. Most are forged and treated the same way or very similar.

    I don't understand trading a USP for a G19 straight up, however. Used 9mm USPs go for $600+, don't they? G19 brand new is around $500ish. :dunno:

    Street price is $450. I've been watching the prices on forums and they're right around the $500 mark. Plus I only had 10 round mags.

    Yeah, it came with a nice molded plastic case.

    Except that lower.. They are 55.00 most places and most of them are fucked up. The mag catch hole is out of spec. Maybe its the bolt catch. I dont remember but its not something you cant work arouund
