I'm looking to buy one of the Sun Devil MFG lowers with a parts kit installed. Can anyone point me in the direction of where to purchase one of these?

why?? Just kidding, Rainier Arms used to have them, but have been out of stock for a while maybe call them and ask for an ETA. If you want a billet lower, POF is making some now and Rainier stocks those. They are nicer in my opinion because the grade of aluminum is better than Sundevil's.

You won't have a problem on most all billet machined lowers. Sun Devil, LaRue, POF, etc. All I've seen are well made and will "run" fine. If you're going to get into the minor discrepancies of machine work then you will need to look at each one. If your going to buy one to shoot and shoot it hard and not be a safe queen each should serve you well.

It's not a big deal, just expected better quality from a $150 receiver. Another discrepancy is that body of the lower behind the mag well it skinnier than a norm receiver so the firing pins stick out a good bit. I you use KNS pins with it, they will have some sideways movement. Still works fine though.

I've got a JP trigger with e-clips. The lower works very well and went together fine. I'll give another report in a year after throwing it around.

Just installed my KNS pins in the bottom of my Sun Devil lower....


Now I am looking for another lower

Lots of side to side movement!
