    The cheapest I have seen is SAA lowers at Curt's. 90 out the door. After you add the shipping, FFL fee's, and BGC to a 60 dollar part, it's a wash.

    Willamette Valley Arms in Hillsboro had some for $69.95 + $10 for the BGC, they were SAA as well.

    Is that price for a stripped lower or a stripped AND LPK?

    I got my SAA on gunbroker.com and with shipping and ffl transfer and background check was $85. Transfer fee was $10 fyi. The quality of the lower was pretty nice. You can also go to aimsurplus.com and they have some different ones at a decent price.

    Where do you get your $10 transfer fees??

    I got my lower from PSA when they were running one of their sales for $50. Came to $82 with shipping and transfer/background. I have 2 more PSA lowers that I got in trade.

    -rds801-

    I went through my buddy Ryan from Ryan Judy sports. I believe Ryan is also partners with Willamette Valley Arms in Hillsboro, you might wanna call them and find out. Also A CUT ABOVE PAWN on Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy does transfers for $10. there is also the "GUN STORE" on Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy but they charge $75 ahahahahah so stay away from them.

    Are they just charging $10 for bg check and transfer? That's a hell of a deal. Sounds like they are doing the paper work for free.

    No.... it's $10 transfer fee per item and the $10 for BG is separate. So if you buy 2 firearms, you pay $20 for transfer but one background check fee. I bought two AKs online and when they got to my FFL (Ryan) I paid a total of $30 and I went home with them both.

    He recently raised his price to 140, plus BGC. Just FYI. But yeah, they are a great piece of kit for plinking.

    My bad I just looked at his ad last week and they were $130. Still $150 out the door is decency price for a complete lower.

    I don't have any experience with the polymer lowers but the internals being polymer kinda makes me go hmmmmm. I seen some torture tests on the polymer AR lowers and they actually hold up good. If you get a stripped lower and put some metal parts inside.... I could see that being a nice build. If you are gonna have a dedicated .22 rifle I guess it's all good if everything is polymer (internals).

    I have one. It's an ok little lower. It works fine. It's not my main, but I use it as a test fixture, and it has never failed. For the average plinker it would be more than fine.
