I've been cruisin' the auction sites for a stripped lower & noticed an 80% lower for "$100 (reserve not met)" and it is in the white to boot.

Now my public school math may be failing me but doesn't it make just about $11 more sense to buy a finished ready to assemble stripped lower? Not counting the tooling required to finish...ie the tap required for the buffer tube. Am I missing something here? The only advantage I can think of is that you wouldn't have to fill out the yellow sheet the 80% lower.

My next build will likely be another lower aquired from EE since the prices there are as good as it gets.

Ya'll can't be implying that criminals would bother with 80% lowers. Afterall everyone knows they get their assault weapons from a trunk of a car for $50 or via the dreaded gunshow loophool.

Don't let that kind of information get out. I would suggest you delete your post immediately.
