Whichever one you like the looks of better. I don't know if they still do but KD used to make the lowers for Spikes Tactical.

KD is no longer around as they were bought out. It all comes down to what you want for markings. The nice thing about KD was that it was made in San Diego, CA. :D

You sure? There contact info still says San Diego?

Ide choose KD, because its always good to support a CA company, and they also supported calguns with the KD calguns lowers they made..

Only thing I dont like about spikes is there spider logo othey put on everything is pretty hideous..

Alright so whichever one I get its gonna be a good lower.. They also have the Spikes with the safe, semi, auto symbols in color which look pretty cool for 140.. Humm

Don't have a KD. But I like my spikes. Or go with a Mega. Top notch finish.

Ink,

I stand corrected. On two counts. They are no longer Kaiser Defense but Kaiser Works. And they are still in SD. Oops.

No. That's Kaiserworks, run by one of the co-founders of KD.

The original machine shop that made KD lowers is still run by the other co-founder as JD Machine Technology.

JD still makes lowers for Spikes, Noveske and SOG Armory.

JD is some good stuff.

Kaiser Defense has got to be one of if not the nicest lower out there. Super clean and smooth with good finish and fit. Do you like quality or cool logos? I think KD has broken up into two companies that make JDM and the Mega. They also made the Noveske N4 lowers. But there are still KD KR5 lowers out there. I was lucky enough to acquire two of them with sequential serial numbers, KR5 lowers. I love these lowers.

Uhh, Mega is an independent company.

Kaiser does not and has not made Mega lowers.
JD does not and has not made Mega lowers.

Mega makes Mega lowers.
