The name is Lee from San Diego. I've owned and been around firearms all my life and im wanting to buld me a nice AR rifle. Im hoping i can get some direction on which manufacture of parts are better than others. Right now im looking at JD Machine here in San Diego for my lower. Any help would be great. Thanks
Welcome aboard. Definitely check out the centerfire rifles section. Great info in there. Good luck with the build.

I've heard great things about JD machine, but there's lots of others out there to look into as well.
Don't be afraid to browse the vendor forums, and ask them questions, as well as the aforementioned suggestion of the centerfire rifle forum as another good source for info.
Welcome to the board, good luck with your build!

Welcome! Hang out in the centerfire forums long enough and you will learn all you need to know! The market place is also a great place to find, purchase and sell some stuff.

Hey 1slyndn, I was also looking at the JD machine tech stripped lower too! I'm not to far from their shop and was thinking of paying them a visit. Would like to snag one of their lowers without the cross hair logo if possible. Good luck!

What's up Lee. I am about to go buy a JD machine lower from Discount Gun Mart by Sea World right now. I am building a .308 on JD receivers too. From what I've seen JD machine is the cheapest option for people in San Diego.
Food for Thought:
I put a Noveske upper on my first AR, and I love it. According to the rumor mill, JD machine actually manufactures Noveske stuff. I can only assume that the quality would be the same but at a much lower price. Do you know if there is any truth to this? I know that Noveske 308s are Armalite compatible while the JD 308s are DPMS compatible (not so much relevant with 5.56 platforms), so I don't know if they are manufactured by the same machinist dudes.
