Been hanging out and reading posts for a few weeks now and finally decided to jump in after I finished my lower yesterday.

Here's a pic of my new lower built around a Franklin billet lower. Having a REALLY hard time finding a matching upper. If any of you have an angle on getting an upper, I'm all ears!

When I was researching the XO-26 back in January, I had heard they were back ordered to 2014. Did you get the lower from Turner's? They might be able to provide some info.

I love my Franklin lowers. But have never even seen an upper. Jd fits good on them. And I've heard rumors that Jd makes franklins forged lowers.

When you say matching you mean also a Franklin upper, right?

I have a Franklin forged lower, and I am getting a BCM 16 inch mid length BFH upper. Probably one of the more solid choices out there, if that helps!

Somehow I doubt it. I have both a Franklin and a JD lower and the finish on the JD is better and a little darker.

They're definitely geographically distant.

The guys at Jd will tell you they make the Franklin lowers. But only if you mention your thinking about ordering a Franklin.

I just saw a Franklin billet lower/upper set at Turner's in San Marcos this past Sunday. IIRC the set was around five bills and change. For the price, I would have preferred the Mega ambi billet set at Parallax Tactical which was in the same ballpark, but that's just me.

Call Turner's at Chino Hills and see if they have them.Last Sunday I bought a Mega billet set there and saw a franklin billet set for over $500.I think I saw an franklin upper receiver too.
