I just talked to the Franklin Armory rep today on calguns and he said everything is backordered for 2013 so this is news 2 me. I even told him I shop at turners he didnt even mention this. Or Turners is holding out on product on warehouse to get ok from manufactures to raise prices

I went today to DROS my PSA lowers at the West Co store, release date is Jan 14, 2013 and they are taking deposits on the Franklin lowers. You have to ask for them specifically. Didn't pay to much attention other than all of the PSA's are accounted for, I got mine.

I wouldn't wait to long on a second chance to get a lower.

I put a deposit on one today.. $289..

They had some on display over at Ammo Bros in Ontario.. nice looking lower.. the price at Ammo Bros was $399.. Soooo, I guess $289 is a good deal.

As much as I would like to get this stripped lower I just felt it was just to pricey the only thing that stopped me was there was a long line of people ahead of me and I ordered two Psa lowers .. Ugggh I will just give it time be for I buy any more

Do they still have these lowers or any lowers in stock? I'd really like to get a Mega, either billet or forged.

I pre ordered 2 seems like a fair price for a high quality billet lower with a QD sling point built in to the reciever. Especially considering some want 400+ for a SW lower

Just called into Pasadena and actually got someone quickly who was able to answer all my questions. Was really suprised I wasn't put on hold. Pasadena Turners is always great!

They confirmed they are taking pre-orders on the Franklin Billet Lowers, $289.

They are not taking any more orders on Mega lowers.

They are no longer taking any pre-orders on the S&W Shield either.
