Do you like to buy lower recievers that are DIAS ready or capable or has it ever been a factor in your shopping for lower shelf or upper shelf lowers for AR builds ? and are Loweres that are DIAS ready usuialy better quality than ones that are not ?:TFH:

I think they might be hard to come by.

No, but it's nice to have options. I know CMMGs are RDIAS and RLL compatible.

DIAS=Drop In Auto Sear

Only legal if it was made and registered as NFA before 1986 in Free America.

RLL= Registered Lighting Link

Same deal.

Doublestar OLL have low shelf height. FYI.

Stags do not, Colts with the sear block do not as well.

Drop In Auto Sear; full-auto conversion part.

Also legal if it was made before 1982 and is not posessed by somone who also has an ar15 (grandfathered as legal but still contribute to constructive posession.... and gee they sure made a lot of the :rolleyes:)

If you can afford a legal DIAS, the seller will throw in a lower that will work with it....

lightning links are much simpler (if not quite as reliable/usefull)

seriously though, don't play with any of this stuff.... 99.9999% of the time anyone talks about a DIAS or lightning link they are a fed and they are looking to bust you...

Most lowers have to be modified to fit the DIAS, when I was looking for a M16 I looked at all my lowers and brought them down to the NFA FFL who had a DIAS and the only one that worked was the MEGA. I tried my Lauer, CMMG, Colt, LMT,, and a few others.

You have to have a deep shelf first off and alot of folks use the DPMS and Bushmaster but anything can be rigged to work. I ended up buying a Frankford Ar. RR so it was a mute point but I did think about it when I was looking for the M16 platform.

BTW, timing the DIAS can be a pain which is why I went for a RR.:chris::chris:

You can always mill the shelf too.
