That's because LMT manufactured the lowers for PWA

......and until just recently LMT was selling NOS PWA lowers to different vendors such as RB precision.
As far as I know LMT has always made the PWA lowers. I have PWA and LMT lowers and they are virtually identical except for the lettering in the logo.

I would have to agree 100%. I own a RB RB precision PWA lower and several LMT's. I do not see any differences between them.

I wish I could get my hands on a couple more of these PWA lowers. They were a real value for what RB P was selling them for.

I remember hearing that PWA closed their doors, and RRA bought some or all of thier assets.

I got two. One is idle right now in my safe and the other I traded to my OIF vet bro-in-law after he returned from Iraq. Sort of wish I hadn't in a way, but then again, he deserves a good one, so I don't feel bad about it.

I wish now that I had bought at least one more. I planned on it, but waited too long and they sold out.
