I have had a hole(mostly in my mind..) in my gunsafe for years. Given all the floating legislation here in CA that would outlaw AR's, I decided to start a build. I first wanted a M&P, but the pricing and timing didn't work out, and I do like the idea of a fully self-built rifle. I even considered one of the 80% lower kits, but decided if they DO outlaw these in Cali, a registered lower would most likely be grandfathered, and it'd be hard to prove when an 80% was completed.
Anyway, I bought this from Turners:
They had 4 different lowers to choose from for $159 before fees. Truthfully all were almost identical, but the finish and engraving on the DTi was a bit better and the reviews online were all glowing. I also picked up the full parts kit for the lower and a separate bullet button to make it CA legal when I do the build.
The bad news is that the del-ton is completely sold out of the rest of their AR rifle kits to complete the AR which would have been my preference.
