Is an 80% lower the same as a Stripped lower or does it require some other modifications or threading? Has anyone heard of a National Ordinance Company (NOC) lower receiver and are they any good?

That means it is 80% machined out of a forged or cast block.  You will have to complete the last 20% to bring it up to a "stripped" lower.

Stripped lowers are complete, less the internal/external parts.

I'm not familier with NOC, but that doesn't mean someone else doesn't.

Thank you for your response. That clears everything up for me.

IMO this is a waste of material, unless you have some addiction to building everything yourself, just buy a stripped and build it up from there. Why spend more for an 80% and risk screwing it up beyond repair??

There are a lot of reasons.  If you research it a bit maybe you could find them out.

PLUS!  It is YOURS!  Not made by ABC or anyone else!

NOC is national ordinance company... it is the same as the tannery shop castings.
