with the new off list guns they have released, does anyone know if they were planning on selling stripped lowers?

Colt won’t.
There may be some vendors what will buy them, strip them and sell the uppers and lowers separately based on customer demand but I wouldn’t expect them to be cheap.

Maybe in about 10 years they will be readily available for reasonable prices via the private market.

Look @ the LE6940s. Colt retails the upper on their website for 1000, the lowers sell (if you can find them) $5/6/700+ when you can possibly get a whole LE6940 for 1400...:shrug:

I’d probably buy the lower if I found one though.

Doubt it.

I would pick any lower before the Colt nanny lower, any day.

Grant @ G&R Tactical will be offering them, he has mentioned it a few time over on M4c.net. ( I know this because I asked the same question to him).

Nanny lower?

A question was asked about stripped/complete lowers on the Colt's facebook page and they stated that there are NO PLANS on making them available as "lowers" at this time.

The lower has a "webbing" (not my term) that won't allow the end user to install a Drop-In Auto Sear.

Where'd you get it, how much did it cost, and what upper are you planning on putting on it?

I purchased the receiver for $350 before they were released in CA.

Keep in mind, a Colt LPK, and Colt parts in general are expensive compared to other manufacturers. I purchased the stripped receiver because I already had a Colt M4 stamped upper receiver from another Colt 6921 that I had.

Colt OLL assembled with all Colt parts, expect to spend north of $600.

was it a truely "naked lower" or was it a "rifle" when it left colt and dissassembled


this may not seem important but it has ramifications

To my knowledge, Colt has never offered stripped lowers.

Outta curiosity why would you go for a stripped Colt lower vs. complete one?
