    Erm, not quite. They're good, but Bravo Company, Noveske, LWRC and Knight's Armament (to name just a few) hold court over those guys...

    ...go to the "build it yourself" section of the "Ar-15" subforum at ar15.com, ...some good stickied threads there for guidance, including this one:
    http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_3_4/22...__GAS_BLOCK___Step_by_step_instructions_.html

    ..also, i think brownells has step-by-step vids for assembling the ar-15...

    I am a fan of Rock River Arms and Daniel Defense. You will pay more for them but it is worth the money.

    The guy who wrote it up missed on a couple tiny details, but overall he's pretty spot on.

    So I will have to say that PSA (Palmetto State Armory) consistently has blemished lowers for cheap as I have seen in a long time if you are looking to start a build.

    I was skeptical when I heard blemished but after seeing quite a few myself I now know that they are blemished in the sense that the finish may not be up to PSA standards, etc. So if you are building and don't really give a rats ass about if there is a small scratch, etc then they are the cheapest (with good quality) way to start

    I envy you guys that live in firearms "friendly" states. I live in Nazi occupied CA and do own an AR, but with "bullet button" and 10 round magazine limit. So if 11 guys are attacking me I better be a great shot and have one of my pistols handy.

    move to a state that respects/protects your inherent rights.....rather than limiting or removing them

    It's a shame they won't ship lowers to my state.

    I'm gonna grab another lower and want to build a nice one this go around. Guy at work mentioned umbrella corp. However it seems like they don't make lowers anymore. Noone has them in stock anywhere. Anyone know what's up?
