Saw a dealer that has the SGW preban lower for 650.00. The construction is billeted. Can someone tell me if this is a good price and what is the diff between billet and forged?

$650 is STEEP!

what are you getting with it?
subtract that and what is the cost of the lower?
now compare that with other billet lowers and don't pay too much over that
if any at all.
billet is only for looks in a lower.an upper may give you + in accuracy.

I'm pretty sure he has to have a preban lower in order to have the evil features. However I wasn't aware SGW ever made a billet lower. I thought they were all forged.

They sure did. It was the FIRST non-Colt lower ever offered to the civilian market. They were originally marketed by "Old Sarge" B&H Service, Natalia, Texas. as "Palmetto Armory" BH15-A1

Here are a couple of photos I found on the net:





Yeah, they were rough. BUT, if you wanted to build an AR-15 they were they only game in town for several years. The only other choice was a standard Colt 20" SP-1.
