I'm looking at possibly building an AR in the near future and I've been looking at Spike's Tactical Lowers that are on sale right now. I have a question about their lower's though. What's the difference b/w the "ST-15 stripped rifle lower Semi/Safe" and the "SL-15 stripped rifle lower with safe/semi/auto bullet markings"? Is there an advantage to one or the other and what are the actual differences?d

I just replied to this question in your DPMS Sportical thread.

Not necessarily. The color fill is an option for both receivers. The difference is in the selector markings.

I think you're memory needs to be refreshed

It is simply the selector markings. Bullet diagram is an HK thing that they implemented because it's different(I like it!) and safe/semi is industry standard.
