Greetings,

Can anybody give me any insight on these "carbon/aramid fiber" lowers?

Thanks.

Try doing a search first. But beware, there are a crew of guys here that feel obligated to bash because Vulcan was once Hesse. I have a had very good luck with mine (uppers and lower).

I'm not going to bash because they're hesse. I'm just bashing the whole idea of a composite lower. WTF is the problem with METAL?

I recent was in volved in a build on a Vulcan upper and lower. It was not easy. Had problems getting the accuracy speaks trigger to work (problem with the way the lower was manufactured).

Less effort to get a standard set-up working properly. Just my .02.

Vulcan/Hesse = "You're fired."

Our group built a S/L U/L Vulcan - I love it and it performs very well so far.

I was "Supervisor" on this buiild (read that as "just watched") - EVERYTHING is a tight tolerance. Problem with trigger group was rear of trigger would hit rear of trigger "pocket" before reaching hammer release point. A few strokes on file on this area giving trigger more travel eliminated this problem and we were good to go. It took a Master Gunsmith to figure this out because it presented itself as a trigger to safety fitting problem.

Good luck.
