As some of you may have read in another thread that I posted, my father has a Colt Match Target AR chambered in 7.62 that he wants to give to me. But, seeing as how its on the bad list, the only way it will happen here in Cali, is by swapping out the lower the a "good" one. So, any suggestions for that particular model? I want to avoid spending too much, but I'm not after bottom of the barrel either.

Thanks again, folks!

Since you are in San Diego area like me, JD lower. And like they said a lower is a lower is a lower.

The one you can get your hands on will be the best.
Far and away better than the one you don't have.

I believe Parallax Tactical still had Aero lowers in stock for $129.99.

ETA: Disregard, I missed the 7.62 part.

7.62 what?

7.62x39 (most likely) Any AR15 lower will work although you might need to do something about the mismatched pin diameters.

7.62x51 (too new to be a Match Target) aka 7.62 NATO? The modular rifles have a different pivot-pin location than one of the AR10 standards.

My bad, 7.62x39.
