How is the fit to upper and finish of  Essential Arms lowers ?Color match to old Colt grey upper ( for possible M16/SP1clone)? Cast or forged?Thanks for help.

THey match o.k., are investment cast (by ruger reportedly) and are as close to the A1 form as you'll likely get without actually getting an original. I've got two rifles built on them and have worked fine for years.

They are Cast Receivers - Built like tanks!!!

i have a EA lower with a Colt M16A1 upper  Stamped  C H   .. Has a  Colt 16inch   1/12 twist  CMP Chrome bore Barrel ,  Colt Carbine Hand guards, Colt Pistol grip, Origional  black Colt  AR-15 2-position, rubber coated collapsible stock, Colt Green Label Full Circle Carrier in it ..

.color is abit off but looks okay to me .. The Fit is Perfect !!

i hope this helps you to Build your Rifle ..

Essential Arms  I'm thinking about getting their steel lower for use with my .50 Beowulf (added weight to cut down on recoil).
