Glad to see you guys have lowers again, had quite a dry spell there.
Is it safe to assume the mag wells on your new product are a little cleaner than the old models?

I've finished 2 of the 4 lowers bought from you guys early in the year, and I'm very happy with them, the new lowers look to be a step up though.
Good work guys, damn glad you're still in the game.

Great price, love the threaded bolt catch and pin. What alloy, 6061?

I am an active duty Marine in Jacksonville NC and I originally started the production here. I will be deploying again soon and it was just logical to go ahead and make the move along with make the changes to our product all at once. We moved everything the MA, which gave us access to a lot not found here in "Actionville". We were able to cut our price by more than 50% to ensure we have the best product at the lowest price.

Yes our lowers are now broached so our mag-well is precise and consistent. We also vibratory tumble the lower, and we made a custom bolt catch pin.

Good deal. I'll be placing an order.
Anybody looking for machined 80%'ers don't hesitate to try TR's. Yes they are 6061 vs. 7075, but unless you're planning on hard use in Viet Nam or South America, 6061 is a perfectly suitable material.
These guys have a good product and excellent customer service. I e-mailed them with a question earlier in the year at the height of the shit storm, and received a call back within 15 minutes of hitting the send button, and they went above and beyond to take care of me.

it is very good news that the magwells are now broached.

I bought 5 earlier this year and it took some work to get mags to drop free.

Awesome, I think im gonna have to pick up a couple.
TR are good guys. Had dealings with them when they first started.

tempting....

Where in MA are you? Do you allow pickups?

One more question. Do you make any without the strange looking trigger guard?

I'd like to know this, too.

Just posted this in another thread too, but I just finished a build a few months ago using one of your 80% lowers, it came out great. Glad to see more in stock, and at a lower price! I'll probably grab another for a future build. Highly recommended!

It's refreshing to see a vendor with a REALISTICALLY priced 80% lower.
Link Posted: 7/20/2013 8:20:49 PM EST
A couple pics of one of my TR lowers finish machined. As you can see, she's gonna be a 300 BLK, yes she likes em bigger than average..........

I bought 5 of these at the height of the panic and they were well worth the $150 I paid then. Unlike anything else ordered then, they arrived fast.

These new versions seem like they take care of the only minor issues I had (the mag well & surface finish) which was resolved with a hand file and sanding.
They were a great compliment to some TNW billet uppers I had.

One complaint is, I will now have to buy more - I can't stop!

Will you let us know when the AR10 80% lowers are available? I don't see them on your website yet.
Link Posted: 7/21/2013 5:38:45 AM EST
Ever thought about making an optional drill bit top plate for your jig?
That would really help out the drill press guys.

Anyway, in for the lower, thanks.

I love free stuff! Especially free GUN STUFF!
Can't wait for the AR-10's, that was next on my to-do list anyhow.
Link Posted: 7/21/2013 7:41:18 AM EST
You guys rock. Its refreshing to see new industry guys so excited about providing a good product and doing it for a reasonable price. You guys were by far the cheapest early in the scare and youre by far the cheapest now. $79 for GOOD looking billet lowers makes it extremely hard to say no haha.
Excited to see the AR10 pics.
Link Posted: 7/21/2013 3:31:45 PM EST
Yeah, you guys are really putting me in a difficult position. I have never done an 80%, but a billet for that price is hard to pass up. I guess I better start thinking of how I will justify another gun to the wife.
Link Posted: 7/21/2013 4:39:57 PM EST
I would LOVE a video of the machining to this point.
Link Posted: 7/21/2013 4:47:01 PM EST
I bought from these guys several months ago, and they were top notch with their products and customer service. I am going to have to start pricing AR-10 parts.

Great news with the AR-10 size frames, will it be DPMS LR-308/AR-308 pattern or original Armalite AR-10 pattern with the new magwell design ?

You fellas seem to offer great designs, and very fair prices from what I see...thanks, and good luck, looks like you have a winning combination.

When I talked to one of the owners on the phone back when they first started I got the impression they were doing it to put out a good product to make people happy for low prices, instead of just doing it to make a paycheck. This is what you get when that happens.
I mean, show me anyone else selling a QUALITY billet receiver for 80 bucks. Im eagerly awaiting the 308.

I'll be keeping an eye out for the AR10's

Develop that drill-press jig and I'm in for a jig and a lower!

bill
Link Posted: 7/22/2013 11:53:20 AM EST
I'm down for a .308 lower and jig, maybe a couple of the AR15 7075 lowers too.

please consider making the .308 Armalite compatible ' everyone else is going the LR 308 / SR25 route
or maybe have a option to leave that area uncut .

There is a reason why the original AR-10 pattern is not as popular as the DPMS LR-308 pattern, simply put
there is more Industry support and parts availability for the DPMS pattern...as well as slightly less machining
time Involved for the DPMS pattern.
