    I almost got the Punisher, but I was never into the series, wife wanted me to get it though. Maybe I'll get it on a rifle for her. :x:

    That's what it boiled down to for me when I was at a funshow buying parts for my AR build. RRA was $150, Stag and DPMS were $120. Decided that it wasn't worth $30 for a RRA lower to match the upper and I preferred the DPMS panther over Stag's buck. The finish on the RRA lowers was also somewhat lacking.

    Is there a real advantage to getting a POF Billet lower other than looks?

    Got a stripped Stag lower today....now time for a lower parts kit. Are they all the same or is one better than the other, I don't really want a 2 stage trigger, just a basic kit to start with.

    there's no real difference unless you want a milled one. Just buy whatever logo you like. None of them are less quality from the other
