Don't wanna paint one, so I am looking for a FDE factory lower. Any idea who has them (I looked HARD) for a reasonable price?

Thanks in advance.

Can't help with locating one but anodizing is an option. Many members here say US Anodizing is reasonably priced and do great work.

I gotta get me a set of these, I am building a Grendel and have been looking into companies that Duracoat because I have been wanting an all FDE gun. I am curious how the combo FDE matches Magpuls, because they state they are a little darker than there standard offerings. Please post some pics when someone get these. I do believe I will be owning a set as well.

I have my set...i'll get some pictures taken in the morning and post them next to some magpul fde.

Now that I have them I can't decide what to build with them....debating doing an SBR, Recce, or SPR.

No... there are not "mil spec" ar15 lowers Also, have you sever seen someone .mil carrying a FDE anodized lower? That being said they are as much "mil spec" as any other forged ar15 lower out there.

Any other sources? $110 for an FDE lower or $195 for the set is pretty good, I just want some options.

I really want to do a build with an FDE lower after seeing Jason121580's pic below in this thread.

SI Defense has them, I just picked one up around the 1st along with a matching upper. They've got billet and forged in all their colors. The billet link is below. Around $130 for a colored forged lower.

You can have it in Titanium for $3,500 more!

Interesting concept. Ti is neat, but thats 1/3 of your way to a RR.
