    Wanting to build my own 308. Been looking at getting a lower receiver. I would love to see a running list of who makes lowers for 308's and I dont find many. So far I have...

    Mega Arms
    Aero Precision
    Plametto State Armory
    Armalite
    DPMS
    Rock River Arms

    Who am I missing. I am sure there are plenty. I want just the stripped lower.

    It seems that the DPMS platform is the one with the most parts available?
    I don't think the brands are that much different until you get into the machined 'billet ' ones.
    Can't be much different than the ar15 lowers for quality

    The PSA lowers are nice, and if you buy their 'blemished' models, when they're available, you can save some $$. I've owned a couple of blem lowers and have a really hard time spotting the blemishes.

    And don't forget 80% lowers, if you're so inclined (I happen to have an unused .308 jig set for sale, FYI ;))
