honeslty, from what I was told... Noveske is not putting out anymore stripped lowers. They are using them for their own builds.

when I talked to Noveske last week they could not even get parts to keep production of their firearms going. They did tell me that uppers will be harder to get than lowers soon.

Irvington Arms has the N6 lowers incoming and is pre-selling them as we speak. Don't know about the N4's though. Give 'em a call.

Just incase you are unaware of the difference. The N6 is a .308 based lower while the N4 is .556 based.

Thanks. I called right away, but they are out. No word on when any may be available. I called Noveske, and they said they would not be taking any orders until 2009, and even then, availability would be iffym (if any at all) with first priority given to their own rifles, which have their own difficulties due to parts shortages. Appears that Noveske .223 lowers are virtually nowhere to be found. Gunbroker has some, but I won't pay what is being asked.

Why do you "need" a Noveske? And if you really "need" it, why not pay the gunbroker price?

Don't need the Noveske, but it has a good reputation, I like the logo, and that is about it. I don't want it bad enough to pay gunbroker prices. I already have coming in a SunDevil lower, and for my 2nd AR15, just wanted something different.

Lowers are lowers.

Spend your time putting money and effort into finding a high quality upper and the other parts.

Noveske Lowers having a good reputation for what?
Matching their uppers?
Freely dropping magazines better than any other lower?
Housing my Geissele trigger any better than my Mega's?

Noveske brings an interesting barrel but damn.

You overstate my desire for the Noveske. I decided on it simply because of a reputation (on Internet postings) of better than average fit and finish, a desire for something different than the SunDevil I have, and the look of the logo. I don't care for bears, spiders, and what not found on some other brands. That's it. If I can't get a Noveske, I'll opt for something else.

agreed with phil3 I would really like one but if i dont get one its not the end of the world.Def not going to pay G.B. prices Already have my complete JP rifle and a cmmg,spikes lower in 10 day jail, just thought a noveske or sundevil would complete the collection nicely. have a jp for distance or tech rifle or 3gun. build one into a 7.62 build one into a pistol cal. , and one into a gas piston and call it a day.

If you can find one on the internet for sale to CA folks, Roger's Relics will transfer them.

I've never held a Noveske lower, but I have checked out the Kaiser Defense KR-5 (5.56) lower and it is a great piece. I'll have one next Tuesday.

You can get the KR5 by contacting KD in San Diego, 619-987-4764.
