View Full Version : Lower Receiver Help

10-16-2012, 4:05 PM
Cal-Gunners, I need some help... after google searching this I have come up empty.

I am going to build a very low budget AR15. When I say "Low Budget" I dont mean cheap either. With that said, I have my plan as far as parts etc. What I am not finding is the lower receiver that I want.

First I want to say NO POLYMER.

Now, what I am looking for in a lower is something preferably under $100.00 and with no roll markings on it. I would honestly love to just buy a Spikes but, I don't want that Spider on it. For the money, I think its a great receiver and I get get between $95.00-$105.00 bucks. Like I said, no roll markings on it, I would get it!

The only roll marking I would be ok with, is an American Flag on the magwell... NOTHING ELSE.

Obviously, its going to have serial numbers on it, caliber/multi caliber, and fire/safe (Would actually prefer the bullet logo's as well just like the Spikes have).

The reason I want it like this is because I am going to customize it with my own Logo on both sides... or put an American Flag on it!

Can any of you tell me if there is anything out there that meet these requirements?? Additionally, please omit any recommendations if you have used something like this in the past and it was out of spec or just not a quality receiver.

I would 100% love to just get a Seekins and do this but, its far out of the price range for this particular build (I have 2 Seekins lowers and can say with 100% confidence the are the BEST I have ever used).

Thanks in advance for the help!

Buy an 80%er ! Or else it's probably going to have roll marks on it

the retro lowers nodak has are probably the closest thing you can find to a bare lower, unless you get a 80%. i am also interested in getting a bare lower for a special project i am thinking about, but i don't have the tools to do a 80%. if anyone has another source for bare lowers please share.

That's what I did with a QD 80% billet receiver (pre-anodized) a CNC build party and an Epilogue Helix laser etcher.

The cost is higher than $100 but you do get to skip sales tax, DROS fees, the 10 day wait and you get a clean lower that you can engrave, laser etch or leave plain.

Mine only has a logo and selector markings.

does anyone have a list of companies who sell 80% lowers?
