Why? Do you have experience with both of the products in question? Both Magpul and Noveske are known for putting out top-notch products.

Does the fact that the Noveske//magpul is essentially plastic bother you?

Thats one reason, but I really like the variety of levers you get with the BAD-ASS.

I want to use the Noveske/Magpul as thats the lowers I am using for them, but it being new and me not being familiar......

I love the Magpul trigger guards but I use the aluminum one, not the plastic. I may be over analyzing this,but it will probably be the only rifle I ever build for my brother and while he is a vet, he isnt a gun guy and probably wont be making much changes.

I had both, and I still have the BAD CASS and plan on getting another, along with a BAD ASS, and a BAD ASS-22. BAD looks better and the CASS has dovetailed levers for additional measure. To me it "fits" better ergonomically and functionally. The customer service is indescribable! They are very active on the forums and they will bend over backwards for you. I haven't had to deal with Noveske's CS so I can't speak to that.

the Noveske was too thick, in it's defense I guess you could dremel, sand, file the levers. Or you can get a BAD and call it good :P other things I didn't like on the STS: the set screws suck to install (I was using a jewelers screwdriver and a leatherman to turn the screwdriver), the levers are really hard to get off the center section, and the right side short lever is invasive(I'm right handed). it's more affordable and the 60 degree throw allows the use on standard/non-45 or 50 degree lowers without potential legal and warranty issues ;)@Duffy
