Hey guys,

Just finalizing my AR build, picked out my upper, for my lower i would like to go with the calguns lower. Those are made by JD machine in SD? Im assuming that since calguns put their name on it, it is a quality product.

Anybody know any brick and mortar stores around San Francisco that currently has these in stock? would like to go pick one up today/tomorrow.

Thanks for the info guys

Make sure you take your mags with you and test them on the lower. The mag should be able to fall just by gravity alone. Many of the early calguns lowers had problems with the mag well being to tight. My lower is back at JD and they are remaking it because the mag well was too tight. When I first noticed the problem I went to the shop where I purchased it and all of them had the same problem.

Any other places, in the sf bay area that has the lowers in stock? petaluma is ok, prefer somewhere a bit closer.

I will make sure to bring a buddies mag to make sure it fits. Any other things i should look out for? Just a quick question, this imperfection is not an indicator of the quality of the lower, right? i would really like to support this site, its a great place. However, i am not willing to compromise on a lower quality part.

That's where I got mine. Give 'em a call before you head over though.

Quality of the lower is good. Problem was that one of the bits on the tool used to mill out the magwell was worn and they had not noticed. Anyway customer service was really good I told them what I was experiencing and they quickly gave me their UPS shipping acount infomation.

I got my lower from Valkyrie Arms in Milpitas.
