Can you tell me what is the difference between lowers made from 6061 and 7075 and advantages/disadvantages of each?
thanks,

A lower receiver is not under a lot of stress so the extra strength is really not necessary.

6061
Cheaper cost
More resistant to corrosion

7075
Harder material

What is the difference between these billet lowers and the ones I bought at gunpartsplus.com which states they are 7075 t-6 forged?

Billet Lowers
Molded in trigger guard, flared magwell, better fitment, aesthetically look better

Forged Lowers
Broached magwell, lighter, cheaper cost

The lower receiver is not under a lot of stress so the strength on both is a moot point.

Spoke to the guys over at gunpartsplus.com about the info you gave me, and they had a different opinion on the strength and durability of lower over time if you are actually going to use the part and not sit in your closet.

I haven't bought anything from Desert Warrior Products, have never made a 80% hunk of metal into a lower, and I don't know gpatte1403, but I can tell a shill when I hear one.

A quick search shows that our buddy, our pal gpatte1403 has posted on half a dozen or more boards asking about 80% parts from guns parts plus dot com, saying how great his newly received 80% parts from guns parts plus dot com are, and even selling 80% parts from guns parts plus dot com.

Quack, quack.

If I can ever put together the money (and keep from having to fix something around the house it), I will buy a pink 80% to please my daughter and spite gpatte1403.

Ordered a few of these lowers with the jig and bit set on sale, order came minus the bits. I replied to the email address I got confirmation from and 11 minutes later I got a reply from Greg Carr to have someone look into it. Just over an hour later Mr Crissie replied he looked into it and they indeed shorted me and they'd get them sent out. I got a confirmation that same day and shipment info the next morning. First experience with DWP but very impressed. I finished my first lower yesterday and it came out great, excellent product from a stand up company, I'd definitely recommend them.

How well would your jig for finishing a 0% lower? Do you offer additional plates to do the mag well?
Thanks coyote115!

No, the universal adjustable jig is only for 80% lowers.

Yes...but it depends on how many lowers you are looking to purchase. It would require a new production run.

From the pictures the gunparts.com 80% lowers do look good and the price is right but when the owner of a company goes around and poses as a happy customer of his own companies products I have a real problem with that. It's a good way to ruin your business. He's essentially telling everyone that he believes we're to stupid to catch him as well as being a liar with horrible business practices.
