    I started my AR build on a budget. Well I have since bought a lot of nice parts for it and wanna upgrade to a nicer lower reciever. Perhaps one with some sweet markings. Any suggestions? Do you guys think FA markings are ghey if the gun is semi?
     
  2. Yes, FA is stupid. Pretty much any lower is fine. They're basically all the same except for the markings.

    I understand they are pretty much all the same. I'd still like to switch it up tho. Especially because the company I bought mine from (Ameetec Arms) got shut down for stealing peoples designs
     
  4. What do you mean by "switch it up?" You could pay to have a penis engraved on it or something.

    Spending big money on a lower is probably the best place to waste money. Upgrade something that matters.

    edit: :rofl: or MG's suggestion

    They're all the same. Buy the cheapest one you can find.

    Yes, FA markings are dumb unless it's actually FA.

    I should have known I would get flamed. Oh well though. I'm still buying a new lower.

    The billet lowers are nice though a little more expensive. I really like the sundevil lowers. They are local in your state too.

    I really like my POF lower. Finish is really nice and the markings are simple. Another one I'm a fan of is Tactical Innovations. Same thing.

    +1 to the engraved penis idea.

    A huge cawk and balls with a fiery halo around it, backdropped by a don't tread on me flag would be pretty cool.

    el oh el.

    I don't see the big deal with me wanting to buy an extra lower. Knowing that they all pretty much function the same, the next thing I would base my purchase on is the design. An extra $100 isn't gonna break me.

    good luck

    they are pretty much out of stock all the time - even before the whole frenzy to pick up lowers
     
  17. There's nothing wrong with wanting an extra lower, just that you want a lower "with some sweet markings."

    I see TKS billets in stock here and there. They are around $200, which is not outrageous as billet receivers go.
