I have found a local gun shop with a Magpul lower receiver, or the "unicorn" of lowers.
It is mated with a Noveski upper and is priced at $4000. If it's real is it worth it?

How can I tell if it is authentic?

I have pics, but I'm need to set-up a photobucket account to link them. I just wanted to put a feeler out there to see if anyone actually has a clue about these things.

No. It is not worth $4000.

Edit: Even if it is authentic, it is not worth $4000.

Yup, people will buy KAC lowers for $900.

Let's see pics, there are a lot of pics of the real deal online to compare it to for initial assessment.

Oh, and just in case, IN before this gets moved to GD.

I almost bought one for $600 during the panic but my common sense wouldn't allow me.

$4000??? Maybe to someone its worth that. To me? Nope. My Spike's lower and BCM upper work fine.

I didn't take pictures of it. The store OP is referring to has been around for a long time and is run by good people. This isn't the first Magpul lower they have had.

How many fake Magpul lowers have you guys seen?
Link Posted: 1/15/2015 9:48:11 PM EST
Does anyone really fake lowers in the us (I know colt lowers are faked in Germany because the upper is the controlled part)? Seems like risking a lot of jail time for little gain.

8-1/2 hours later, still no photos.

Two first-time posters backing each other up.

I am impressed.

During the panic, $600 for a complete KAC lower was a damned good deal.

Some of the LaRue lowers were $1500

I always loved Stick's pictures of the Magpul lowers. Would love to have one.

Also insane. I was about to pop down $595 for an ambi LWRC complete lower. I built one on a Seekins SBA15 for $340 instead. But back to the O.P subject. The magpul lowers look good and they are unique. I suppose calling it insane to pay subjectively astronomical prices is hypocritical of me as there are people who will call me a fool for building a $340 lower when i could have picked up a complete P.S.A for $200, in the end its just scale.

Is it really illegal? 80% lower. Engrave whatever you want. Personal use. Decide to sell it later. I'm not saying it's not illegal, I just don't know if it actually is.

Instead why don't you purchase an almost exact copy?

The AR15.com billet lower, it's identical except for the logos.

Link Posted: 1/16/2015 6:52:04 AM EST
I like how someone asked what shop and OP responded with a vague response about the shop owners. Someones afraid its going to get purchased right under him..... sort of ironic when the rest of the posters are stating its not worth the $4,000.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 8:17:41 AM EST
I saw one on gun broker a while back and I believe there were asking 7500 but don't remember if it's sold or not.

Link Posted: 1/16/2015 8:31:59 AM EST
If I were to put any amount of money down that size on a lower receiver, it would have to be NFA item.

No way even if I had the money would I spend $4k on a stripped lower.

OP, Im me the name of the shop. No way is it worth it, but I have been to a lot of the shops in SC and I think I know the one you are talking about. If you arn't a shill, IM me.

I don't know. I know there may be trademark infringement but that is a civil matter as my guess. Even the guys who do clones from unfinished lowers may engrave the colt logo - but I don't think they add Colt MFG or colt defence marking with the city/state. Certainly not a lawyer but I think going that far has got to be extremely frowned upon if not illegal.

I don't doubt Stickman assertions that there has been faked Noveske and Magpul lowers though. I don't see any mention with my googling skills though of a confirmed one.
