I've been following the links on this site in search of the lower i will need.

In order for the AR to be compatible with other AR accessories, what type lower do I need?

It seems as thought there are several different types with different specs?

Do i want:

milspec?
forged?
etc.

In other words, which lower do i want in order to have a rifle that is compatible with any accessories i choose to put on it?

Thanks!

I just bought an Olympic lower from Mark at Triple Break Products, and I am very happy with it. Its Forged, milspec, standard size (not Colt) pins.
from his web sight:The foundation for every standard rifle Olympic makes - a forged 7075 T6 lower receiver, cut on CNC machines to mil-spec tolerances. All standard mil-spec (meaning non-Colt's) AR parts will fit in these receivers, including standard hammer and trigger pins and front pivot pins.

Would and Oly (i owned a CAR back in about 1992 and wish i'd kept it) only take oly parts? Or does it mean that i can pretty much buy any parts that aren't colt?

Ditto Notack! Would add for a kit forged lower would be my choice. It holds up better to driving those pins and wouldn't want to crack a lower.
