What is that anvil/bird looking pictograph forward of the magwell?

I have a Armalite stripped lower and dont have that pictograph

Am I correct to assume the pictograph is only on factory rifles?

Oh crap. That thing is friggin' beautiful - AND FORGED!
Oh no, my poor bank account. Well, I'm glad I didn't send off my papers for another registered lower. Gotta wait til I get one of these. :)

Wonder if they'll sell matched upper/lower (tight) forged sets?

Good grief, just when I thought I was done for awhile.

Out of only the lowers I've owned I liked the Charles Daly the best. I also liked the S&W crest on the port side. Sucks they put the M&P15 logo on the stbd side. Made it look tacky.

Though I never owned one, I really like the Sabre Defence "Thundercat" logo.

I'm would go with Noveske or Mega...

Actually most of my rifles are one of these except for my Battle Born which I bought locally for the hometown markings.

Since I won the upper in the LaRue monthly contest, matching lower is my all time favorite for sure.

Yes. The DOT stamp is only on complete factory assembled rifles.

I really like the KAC and DD lowers.

There are several I find appealing, but for reasons of reputation and appropriateness to my degree, the Mega lower was my choice.

The GHTF did a special run a while back only 125 were made. They were all sold but if you really wanted one you could make a WTB ad and someone that got extras may be willing to part with one. But you will probaly have to go deep into your pocket I sold my spare one 6 months ago for $250

This would be my preference, but I don't have the skills & tools to finish an 80% lower... so in the meantime I'd say I like NoDak Spud lowers the best because there is no logo, just text.

I like my LMT roll mark. Simple.

Correct, but mine is nothing like it was when i bought it.

I managed to forget about this one. As far as lower receiver rollmarks go (commercial and military), this is my favorite:




But as I mentioned earlier, ArmaLite is my favorite commercial rollmark.


ETA: There's something fabled and mythical about the XM16E1 in my mind. I think it has a lot to do with the "experimental" part.

For the best factory standard rollmark...love the Colt R6721 rollmark

Colt AR15-A3 Tactical Carbine.....love it

That is massive amounts of win right there

Did you just get lucky getting #87?

I like my DD awfully well. I really like the stag arms as well, wouldn't mind picking up one of these stripped for a rainy day.

No. Life members were given first dibs on pre order ser. #.

I was quick to snatch up #87.

+1 Anything with "AR-15" markings is fine by me, I've got two AR6721.

My former first SP1, SP2 and preban AR-15A2 HBAR had also the AR markings.

Without the AR-15 markings, I like the Noveske.

My favorites roll marks are Colt, Mega, and Spikes. They are quality brands too.

Those started out as 0%ers. My son and I made 4 total. I still have not found a favorite design to machine on them.

You rang?
It's the only one. I did all of Territorial's engraving while they made lowers. I had a little extra artistic freedom with mine, and some others.
I liked doing the 2nd Ammendment series too.
