Where? the AR15 forums has a info topic on ARs but they dont mention the Gristmill lowers

This is OPEN discussion, so what's the problem?

I've never heard of them. Are they low-priced?

They were a company that went out of buisness before the ban but thats about all I know. I have a preban rifle built on one of these lowers and I just wanted a little more info on them.

I had one years ago. It was a steel A1 style lower. I think it was casted. Fit and finish were not the best. Sold it off. No regrets.

EDITED TO ADD: I was thumbing thru some old files, the one I had was marked model XM177E3, s/n in low 100s. Also had a raised magazine fence.
