Billet: Quentin Laser. I have one of these in my safe just begging me to be an AR pistol. Great machining.

Forged: Tactical Machining. I plan on using their jig to complete mine, so you might as well buy a lower while you're at it.

NOTE: The TM lowers are out of stock right now. There was a thread in the Gunsmithing forum about them getting their lowers reaffirmed by the ATF for their 80% status. Seems the Achilles heel was the selector switch hole. According to the most recent ATF letter, there can be no machining of the FCG pocket. I would assume that they have pulled their remaining stock to finish into full lowers, and are in the process of making new 80% ones without the selector hole.

thanks for the info i was looking at theirs and would have bought quite a few at that price! hope the price stays low! a friend of mine has some jigs and a mill i just need to pick up a few lowers. want to build one right away and have a couple for later on down the road. thanks again

Tactical Machining is waiting on a new EDM machine, which was supposed to be on line by now. I read that when they do get it up and running they will get caught up fast.
There is also a new California company getting ready to introduce an 80% lower.
