Just wondering. I purchased one of these the other day (don't have it yet) but am wondering if I should of gotten a "LMT" marked lower instead. I like the looks of the Lauer stamp but am wondering if I should of kept the look all LMT. BTW, I'm building an all LMT 14.5' M4 other that a Colt b/c and LPK.

I know this shit doesn't really matter but.......

i am in the same boat.. as i saw it both lowers are the same except for the rollmark. i really liked the lauer lower rollmark better but decided to go with the lmt marked lower bec it came with  the parts kit assembled  from the factory. if i could get a lmt parts kit i would have gotten the lauer lower but lmt does not sell a parts kit. i know it does not matter to most but i wanted a complete lmt rifle.  now i got to wait for the mrps to come off the assembly lines. i think you made a great choice, the lauer lowers look great. i have heard that bushmaster parts kit works great in them.

The Lauer lowers are a fuckufalot better looking than the LMT marked lowers, if looks is your thing.

Yea, the Lauer lower is cool looking-not the only thing to me though. I'll be ordering a LMT upper from adco soon I guess to round it off. I like LMT due to their stuff being quality and close to milspec like the civi Colts only without the colt price.

I recently got  a lauer receiver  off of Gunbroker. It seems like a nice high shelf lower. Mine did have some fairly nasty flaws in the finish.  I got two of them. One was perfect the other was not.  ***This is not intended as a flame***. I e mailed them and they will send out a replacement, all is well. I just thought I would mention this due to this being a Lauer lower thread. I have pics of the problem areas  because I inculded them with my e mail to then. I will not post them here because they are being very good about the exchange. These thing happen sometimes, just seem that I am always the one that they happen to.

Isn't an LMT lower a DPMS lower?

The only difference is the rollmark, right?

I just ordered one, not 5 minutes ago. I think it is the best looking lower I have ever seen. Denny is the best, I cant wait to get it.

I can't wait to get mine, either. Bought a LE-marked lower on Gunbroker (don't care about the LE mark, but the price was right and I wanted an LMT lower). Been waiting a few weeks now. Not Lauer's fault--my FFL either failed to send a copy of his license or it got lost in the mail. Arranged for a second copy to be sent, but still waiting. Arrrggghhh!!! Can't wait to mate it to my LMT upper.

You are probably thinking of DSA. LMT makes their lowers too.

And LMT lowers are better than Colt because they use the proper sized pins for the FCG.

+1 for Denny and the Lauer lowers. I love mine.

That is my understanding.  I think the LCW rollmark is much better looking than the LMT.

I was thinking this at first, but I recieved my LMT/Lauer lower from Denny the other day and I am very impressed with it.  No difference in finish that a LMT my friend has and I think I like the Lauer logo.

The simple markings are a great idea!   We still need a monkey marked lower though.  That or a pig logo.

That said next year I may? have LMT produce some lowers with for me.  I am researcing BATF marking specs.  I am leaning away from any LOGO and just doing an FN type military marking with just the basic information in a simple font.  What ya think?

Very cool idea.

I'd buy one!

DMPS lowers are made by LAR, as are Bushmaster lower receivers.
Link Posted: 1/11/2005 1:03:18 PM EDT
I have an OD Lauer lower.  I like it.  I read on here that Bushmaster lowers with a 'L' in the SN were made by LMT.  I had one of those and it was nice.

How about one with the Seal of the United States of America?

Back to the original subject though...I've got a Lauer marked LMT lower I bought from Denny a few months ago, and it is THE HEAT.  Great machining, nice BLACK color.
