Are the parts that come with the mega lower any better or worse than bushmaster or RRA? Also if I buy the mega lower should I get the mega upper to go with it or just buy a bushmaster or RRA?

From what I've heard the Mega's are nice lowers, I doubt they're better than Bushmaster but probably close to it. You don't have to mate it with a Mega upper, any decent upper will work, i.e. RRA, Bushmaster, Model 1, M&A...whatever.

Here is a Mega lower with a different upper. They work well together.

I just missed your first part, Mega does not make LPK or FCG parts. If you get your Mega with parts through Carrico, you are probably getting RRA guts, which is a good thing.

I sprung for the MEGA Combo, which included the lower, upper and charging handle. It is very nice.

Looking back now, glad I did it.

one thing to remember is that when you buy the upper and lower from the same manufacturer, the finisg SHOULD match.

The MEGAs are better in my opinion. Finish is amazing and fit is perfect.

If you get them from Carrico he uses parts kits from various manufacturers to complete them: Bushmaster, RRA, and Olympic. When you order just be sure to specify what you want.

Just today I mated a couple of RRA upper receivers to mega lowers. The finishes don't match but they aren't dramatically different.

The lower is pretty easy to put together n your own if you want.

I have a mega lower laying around here, VERY nice finish on that lower, could do without the "gator grip" through. the finish is MUCH nicer than the stags I bought recently.




I was lucky enough to actually get to put my 2 lowers together at the show with Clinton ( the guy that makes Mega/Stingers)...the parts we used were all DPMS

I have the matched uppers and lowers, Clinton if a "Whore" when you goto his table, He also has Bushmaster lowers, Oly Lowers, Eagle....You name it, he sells it!...But when I get to put the lowers next to eachother, I still buy his MEGA's ( and save a few bucks too!)
