Anyone remember the busted lower thread here? Anyone have a link to it? There are doubters among us.

Hard to doubt that! That sucks, looks brand new too. What happened?

So how did this break? It has no sign of a previous crack or fracture. Was the rifle misused or what?

It looks like a casting to me.

WOOT! Hadn't seen that one but it'll work. We just had one on this forum that the owner had epoxied steel pins into as a repair. That was the one I was thinking of.

See the 2 marks at the top of the buffer hole? The carrier slammed into the receiver. Probably the wrong spring/buffer installed. If the carrier is allowed to slam into the receiver instead of being stopped by the buffer assy, the lower will fail, even the forged units.
