Most lowers are mil spec. Just depends what logo you like. Also a Two Stage NM trigger would be nice.

I have a Rock River and a couple of Lauer Customs. all with RRA NM triggers.

Magpul Billet Lower or the Larue Billet Lower. I have this dream of a 100% Billet rifle. :)

Well, we almost made it ten days without someone asking this question. Please, try to use the search function.
Here are the various manufacturers:
This is what they look like:
Most lowers function just fine, it is all in the eye of the beholder.
Get the lower parts kit from a major manufacturer, i. e. RRA, Armalite, Bushmaster, Colt (mixed reviews on DPMS)etc.; don't try to save pennies here.

which is why i don't understand why those links aren't stickied... would save a lot of new threads and "use the search" posts... mods??

To be fair to the OP, he wasn't just asking about the lower. He also wants to know about parts kit and the like.

To that end:
Most Lower Parts Kits are the same, but I like that I have an LPK from the same maker as my lower (CMMG for both).
Triggers: you can go crazy in a few different routes here. I have a 3lb skeletonized Timney single stage trigger. Haven't fired it yet, but even just dry firing the trigger breaks so smoothly it has to be felt to be believed. Others prefer two stage triggers; not sure which is best but many like LMT.
Stock: Magpul UBR may be the nicest (or at least most expensive) collapsible stock available as of now.
Pistol grip: Hogue grips are nice, but if you want battery storage and pretty colors you may prefer the Magpul MIAD. I have both and like them both (not sure which I like more).

If money is no problem ... get a stainless steel lower with RRA LPK with Geissele NM trigger.

LMTs are nice especially with the NM 2 Stage Trigger and SOPMOD Buttstock. I have 10 or 15 on order! :D

I'm ordering a few Armalite's today...somewhat surprised to find them as they're typically sold only on complete rifles. Figured they'd be fitting for a few uppers Armlite tempted me with during the Christmas sale.

The neatest Lower I've seen is the LAR window lower (has cutouts in the mag well)

02-21-2008, 6:50 AM
Oh yeah..

I bought about 30 of those 9 months or so ago. Not too bad.

I also came up with a new mag lock for this lower.


I also have a liking for this Lower.

Since I was in my PB album I figured I would tease you all with the new PIN-LOCK that is soon to be released.

When your asking?

Watch my sigline the announcement thread will be there.

Lowers: I'd say POF Gen III, II, & I. The Magpul will be at the top of the pile if it comes out (and how limited they are going to make it). Larue (SMOS Arms).

Trigger: Geissele, JP Enterprises, Timney, Chip McCormick, LMT 2 Stage, RRA 2 Stage,

LPK: Is there actually a difference? RRA, CMMG, Stag, DPMS, ect. I use RRA LPKs.

Stocks: Magpul UBR, Magpul PRS, Vltor, Ace Socom, Magpul CTR, ?. More of a personal preference of quality and style.

Grip: Magpul MIAD, Hogue, ?

Which lower is the superior lower?

....I want to make one....very very nice one. :)

Perhaps a titanium ar-15 lower would suit your fancy.....I am thinking about picking one of these up and building my .50dtc rifle on it......

Well, if money is no object, you should be able to make a few donations to the right political campaigns and then get approval to buy a pre '86 NFA registered lower and the FCG that you want. I bet you could pull this off for a 100K-200K depending on whose campaign funds need a boost.

jp billet lower ,if money is no object.

If you're going POF go gen III and get the ambi bolt release.

Ever since I used an Armalite LPK I don't think I could use anything else. I REALLY like the bolt catch (the form makes it easy to actuate to lock back the bolt):
as opposed to:
