They are low shelf. I am using one now for a build. I have not completed it however.

They are made by J V Precision Machine Company for LRB JVP also makes the lowers for Double Star.

The pic of the lower on the LRB website does not do it justice. I especially like the logo. They are Mil-Spec and made in the USA. I have not heard anything negative about them.

I've seen them used in 4 builds, between my friends, and myself. All went together perfectly, all uppers fit right. Color, fit and finish were excellent.I would not hesitate to use them again.
I would consider not using the parts sets that I got from LRB ie, one mag release button was undersize, one kit was missing the bolt catch, and one trigger seemed a bit off ( very hard trigger pull, I switched in a spare bushmaster trigger, and it was fine).
No regrets, and if I buy another lower, it will be LRB.

Are all LRB's made by the same company? The reason I ask is I saw two on Tuesday that did not have the logo and the name stamping was quite different. The receivers were the lowest price in the shop but I did not know anything about them. They did not look to be as well made as the DPMS and LMT that the shop had and the DPMS was only 7 dollars more so I bought two of them insteed of the LRB. If the LRB's are indeed as nice as the others then I'd gladly buy them. Anyway is it psoible someone else is making LRB's with out the logo or do they have two grades of receivers? Donald

Just bought my 2nd LRB lower last week. Very well made. Although the roll marks for the fire and safe, are a bit different on this lower. I'm happy with them. I don't think I will use any other lower, for future builds. I go to LRB and buy right there , so the price is pretty good.

donws2 , All the ones that I've seen were stamped the same, this over a period of 2 years . I think they were marked " JV Precision " or something similiar to that.

DanG I went back to the store and the two LRB's are sold. I did not see a JV Precision
mark anywhere the first time and I think I read it could be at the pistol grip attachment lug. Anyway the marks as I remember are something like:

L R B Arms or L. R. B. Arms
Model No. AR-15 same
Calibre 223/5.56mm
Somewhere, State USA
S/N. xxxxxxxxxx

Other than Safe/Fire I do not remember any other marks. The over all quality reminds me of the cast DPMS receivers from the early 90's. The pictures on another thread on this site are nothing like what I saw. If they had been half that nice I would have grab them. But it's not a total lost as they still had several DPMS at 120.00 so I bought two more. Now I have six new recievers and only two parts kits on order. Well I'll plenty of projects for the winter.

Here are some pics of my LRB lowers. I stopped in at LRB arms last week and picked up the stripped on in the pics.





Here are some pics of my other LRB arms lower from a build earlier this year.

Great lowers, and the guys at LRB are fine people that I really enjoy doing business with.

Too much markings for me

I like STERILE myself but it only matters to the owner

I've had a few, 0 issues, std mil spec lower, great people too.
IIRC, their LPK's are dpms, take that for what its worth.

I personally won't go near the store anymore though:
Every time I've gone in there, I come out wanting to blow 6K on a M14 clone.

I just ordered a lower from this company. $85.00, no shipping.

Looks like the m15sa picture above.

+1
I currently have 7 rifles or carbines with LRB lowers, a few years back they would make you a hell of a deal on a dozen.

They are not as pretty as my LaRue or Tactical Inovations billets, but they are just as functional.

I got one and it has loads of flash around the trigger area. It is also the tightest fit with Pmags between my Bushy and Ameetec. Not bad for $79 but not great.
Great question, funny nobody has ever asked that before.

I moved my LMT 14.5" upper to one in order to use my LMT lower for my MK18 clone. I have fired about 2000 rounds from this lower with my LMT upper. Here's some observations about the lower...

Pros

  • I paid $99 for mine in January of this year (right when Obama madness was at it's peak) so the price and availability are good

  • Attractive roll mark and markings. Purely aesthetic but I much prefer it over other lowers.

  • A1'ish rear take down pin detent channel. This would make this lower right at home for an A1 based build, but something like a SoDak A1 would be better.

  • Colt LPK dropped right in without drama

  • Finish is nice and even, anodizing is in no way purple



Cons

  • VERY tight with all PMAGs (including new generation) which really sucks. EMAGs and USGI Al mags work well though.

  • Front and rear take down pin holes are slightly over sized. Not a big deal but I did notice it.

  • Lots of flash lines and cutting/tooling marks.

  • Lots of sharp edges, especially the trigger guard "ears"



All in all it is a good buy for the price.

In some pics they look a greyish color. Is it just the pics or are they a dull color? Do they match new uppers well?

Mine is a good match to Colt and LMT finishes.

I had one of their lowers that I picked up from a local ffl earlier in the year. Overall it looked good execpt for some tooling marks in the trigger area. Ended up selling it because I decided I wasn't going to use it for a while and figured someone else could use it. Ended up selling it and a dpms lower parts kit to someone local at cost.

i just finished my first build with this lower. the finish is a dead match with the sundevil upper i used. i bought the lower because i liked the cannon ball, and cannons. there were no sharp edges on mine. inside the trigger guard has a raised ridge just behind magizine well. i will post some pics of my build very soon. b
