While I'm not going to start building an AR-15 for some time, I thought it would be smart to do what I did with my PC and start collecting parts well beforehand.

To that end, I've been eyeing this lower:

Is it worth the buy?

Spikes lowers are made by Kaiser Defense they are good to go

I just bought a spike and the quality looks good. I have all the color markings marked and have the punisher engraving. I will post up a pic later.

At $89.95 it's a pretty good buy but calling it 50% off on an artificially inflated price...?

So what's the difference between ST-15 & SL-15? Just looking at the spec's they look identical.... Am I missing something here??

Quick look to me show bullet markings, or semi/safe markings. The engravings and finish will be the only real difference, no functionality changes.

I love my spikes man, When I got mine they were being made by Kaiser Defense and I have had no problems and a perfect fit and good finish actually better finish than my upper.

IIRC they actually have a few manufactures making lowers for them. KAI serial numbers are made by Kaiser. Mega's lowers have BMT serial numbers.

...and not that Mega is a bad thing either - I have a couple and they are perfectly to spec and exceptional lowers.

I once bought 3 lowers at one time from Spikes.

One was perfect.

The other had a slightly awkward finish.

The other had a mal-machined magwell and would not accept a mag.

YMMV.

This sucks because I jsut bought my lower before they put it on sale??? Damn I wonder if they would match the new price since I bought it within 30 days???
