    Wow,thanks for the link.
    Looks like i need to get a few just to have on hand.
    The roll mark looks good,wonder if anyone local has one to be able to see how the fit and finish is on these.

    Be sure to let us know how they are. Did you use a NWFA dealer for the transfer?

    I think I'll stick to lowers that I know don't require filing to fit uppers.

    That is true, and the filing/sanding we have heard about so far is very minimal.

    Aero Precision lowers are only $80 or $130 with LPK installed.

    Those supposedly have, or originally had, non P-Mag friendly magwells. Some of use don't use P-Mags though.

    Hopefully Mega Machine lowers will come back down to about $75.

    LPKs are finally back down to reasonable prices too: DPMS for $51, Stag for $65, CMMG for $64.

    I built two M-16s on $60 lowers. i havent had any problems yet. the .22 has around 15k rounds through it now, and the .223 has around 4k. so far they don't show any wear. but we will see when they start getting closer to 40k.
