I've been on their waiting list since March or Feb. I keep calling 'em every week or so, and every time the answer is "next week for sure". To be fair, they didn't charge my credit card until a couple of weeks ago though.

there were some finish issues, but the main one was on the inside near the trigger housing, so it didn't bother me. now to dig up $$$ for the upper and additional magwells....

I got one last January. Haven't had the funds to build it up yet but the two gunsmiths that I let finger it were pretty impressed with it.

Mine is rollmarked STAG and is forged, not billet, like the new ones.

Otherwise, not much different than the other lowers. What do you need know about it?

If its worth spending $500.00 for it. My main point in buying it is for the 308 caliber feature. Thats about it. Wont shoot any other caliber through it since I have sets of rifles in 6.5, 6.8 and 223.

It might be worth $500 if the DOJ is successful with pushing their proposed regs through and get the courts to uphold them. You get one AR mag well and weld a plate over the magwell opening to be in compliance. Then get another "normal" magwell to put away for a rainy day.

That was my purpose also. The 7.62X39 conversion is quite interesting, but I am not certain about spending $250 for the magwell, $850 for the upper, $120 for the special bolt carrier, $75 for the bolt, and ??$ for the barrel is worth it, though the bolt carrier and upper can be used for subsequent caliber conversions.

Concerning the 7.62X51 conversion, well, THAT will be quite interesting once it is released, especially since it accepts M14 magazines. I believe Mr Lyons at MGI also stated that a .45 grease gun mag conversion is the next option, then belt fed options.

And it still remains to be seen if they do come out with the .308 magwell.

Yup. Haven't heard any NEW news out of them in months about it. Last thing I heard from MGI was that a magwell that'd take AR-10 mags was on the drawing board, as well as one for M-14 mags.

Actually the original AR-10 mags were modded M-14 mags; I am not sure how the new generation differs from that beside that the new bolt catch is supposed to work better with them, but then again, on ARF.com they say that the old bolt catch works fine.
