DPMS lowers used to be GTG.  in spec, low shelf lowers that never had alignment issues.
I used to have several of them and was pleased with the build.
Has Freedom Group QC ruined them?

I don't think DPMS exists anymore. Remington was handling their warranty work but they've since gone belly up. AAC is done for too.

I really wish someone would do a run of themed lowers roll marked "GUCCI". They'd sell a metric fuck ton most likely.

I would vote to put PWS on the higher tier

Even more so when CDNN blew them out recently.

Big fan of the ADM UIC

Very niche, but UCWRG puts out some wicked nice stuff. I have KAC and Colt mostly, but UCWRG has the best finish, machine quality, and fitment of them all.

Disclaimer: I have a sample size of three lowers and uppers with LPK, so not that large. Just my experience.
Link Posted: 12/1/2020 2:57:49 PM EST
interesting to see Nokeske on the highest tier list. i was under the impression from reddit they really didn't offer much ever since Noveske himself passed. maybe i have to pick up a noveske rifle and see for myself

Got a pic of that noveske lower? I looked online and couldn't find anything about it. Never heard of it before so I'd like to see one

Agreed... I regret not getting one of those color filled "Snowflake Lowers" from Spikes "as I think that is what they are called" when they were available. I'd rock the shit out of that lower anytime because the hilarity and meaning of it is a classic as Original Coca-Cola!

Other 2 are Uber Retarded...

I tend to agree. Thankfully I got a MEGA "GTR-3H" ambi lower and matching upper 5-6 years ago when they were available. Wife bought them for my birthday present. Paired them up with a Noveske CHF barrel, quality internals and a Centurion FF rail that is my favorite AR.

Jealous. I picked up a Mega forged lower when they were around. Thought the concept of the anti-slop screw was cool. Now I don't know what upper to match it with, because it's finish is different from other uppers I have (seems shinier and smoother than say, spikes)
Link Posted: 12/2/2020 12:46:42 PM EST
For fun:

I think we need to rethink calling them Gucci and maybe go with Louis Vuitton or Channel....according to Ms 77, these are much more desirable brands...



So here is how I see the the new Tier system names

Teir 1:  Channel

Tier 2:  Louis Vuitton

Tier 3:  Gucci

Tier 4:  Ralph Lauren

Tier 5:  Gap

How is a Daniel Defense lower any different than any other standard forged lower? Same for KAC forged non-ambi.

@povertybruh

Cool lower... Got pics of it? My MEGA upper/lower are about on par with my other complete Spikes in color-anodizing...

Spikes 14.5" on top
Mega/Noveske 10.5" on bottom.

Gucci: In spec lowers.

Garbage: Out of spec lowers and most polymer.

It's not.

Lower in spec? Lower made from quality aluminum? Lower is good.

Which brands actually manufacture their own lowers and lower parts instead of roll marking a part some other company made?
Link Posted: 12/30/2020 3:57:51 PM EST
Since ammo cost more than the build, I consider F1 Gucci and it takes great pics and is fun to fondle when I make a pew pew noise out loud.

The magazine well and trigger guard appear to be vulnerable to damage.  Does it seem sturdy to you with a full mag loaded?  If you tripped and fell on it with full kit while running with a full mag and landed on it, would it hold the mag and not damage the lower?

Before I re-cerakoted it , I won't say I abused it like the youtube guys but I was not easy on it. It seems to hold up very well and is sturdy. I chose to not get an F1 upper because I did not want all the trash in it all the time with the huge slots and went with a spikes billet with made on rail.

Hmm, no one mentioned Ascend Armory. beautiful billet set and and about as Gucci as you can get with an AR. Radian/AXTS remains my favorite AR of all though and I guess also falls in the Gucci category. In the end, whether Gucci or not, as long as they're in spec and things fit right and function right then what difference does it make? Enjoy your builds whether Gucci or lowly brands!
Link Posted: 12/31/2020 8:49:33 PM EST
No particular order. I say top 5:

LMT MARS
KAC Ambi
LWRC Ambi
Radian Ambi
Colt M4 marked for cloners.

@BrickWurX Gucci lower time!

My Gucci lower that I have is a sharps brothers livewire.  It's not that gay shit with skulls or whatever.  Pretty cool looking.

If you're new, then it's all moot anyways. Build up something cheap to start with and then go for Gucci. So many newbs piling into the marquis brands that don't know crap - except for the fact they want to flex on the gram. In which case they look mostly like tools when they're strutting around with a 75% complete rifle and bugger up their KAC parts because they installed a URX wrong.
Link Posted: 1/22/2021 1:12:08 PM EST
There used to be a company that made a lower with a rollmark of a stripper on a pole.

Oh wait you said gucci lower not coochie lower.
