well i got a second lower from dennys and in comparison to some of the other brand lowers i have i am going to have to agree with denny, the new lowers are one of the better ones!!

to start i am a bushmaster follower and love their lowers and would pick them over any other when in doubt. majority of my armory are on bushmaster lowers. in no way am affiliated with dennysguns/global tactical other than my money always being sent to him. with his quality products and great customer service i seriously doubt that anyone needs to be bought anyways.

the newest batch is much smoother finish all around, rollmarks are just about perfect and priced at a steal!

some pics i snapped of it bare the new gts lower was not cleaned or oil in any of these pictures and after oiling it was slightly darker matching the keyhole upper very nicely and almost an exact match with the cmt upper recievers.

second batch gts lower mated to .50 beowulf upper


2nd batch gts lower and bushmaster keyhole upper


2nd batch gts lower with colt 6450 9mm upper


2nd batch gts lower fire control pics


some others to compare




random pic of the front magwell, the two top ones are the gts lowers.


rollmark pics

gts 1st batch, notice the roughness and uneven rollmark.


gts 2nd batch, perfect rollmark and smooth finish


various other rollmarks.

bushmaster L recoated with flat-black moly resin


bfi lower


AA beowulf lower, one of the nicest rollmarks i have seen and the gts is comparable.


colt




a picture of the two gts lowers together


rear shot with the 1st batch on the left and new one on the right. in this pic you can see how smooth the second one is.


trigger guard pic


the two gts


all of the lowers compared to




the last few pics make the lower look sorta gray but it was due to it laying flat while the others are at an angle. 12'oclock sun was shining directly on it. also note that it hasnt been used or oiled like the others.


with the second lower it will be built into a .22lr suppressed sbr for the wifey so as soon as paperwork return for it i will post more pics of it. the first one will be used to swap out the lower that is on my recon rifle built with dennys recon bbl.

the lower is a great deal when compared to the others in the market and supporting a great guy at the same time.

other lowers i have compared this to:

dpms
eagle arms
rra
bushmaster (both series)
colt
AA
essential arms
ameetec arms
mega

and the gts is a hard to beat in overall finish and quality.


heres the link to globaltactical's lowers on the website.

Wow!

Excellent report!


Thanks for taking the time to put that together, it really shows the variations well.
I think Denny just might have the best deal going on lowers right now.

I have a 1st gen. that has a frighteningly similar sn# to yours...

no logo period, and imho the new ones have a better finish and rollmark.

I plan on buying one soon as I get some more money. I will let is sit around until I decide to build something.

Wow! Those rollmarks are way nicer compared to the first batch. Wasn't the first batch returned to Stag for re-anodizing? Maybe that's why the finish is different...

I like not having caliber markings and you don't see SAFE - SEMI on any AR's without AUTO following it. It's the little things that make it unique. I just mailed in my Form 1 for my GT Lower and I will be getting one in the next few months for a 'regular' sized rifle.

Nice pics and write up. Good job!

I like it if it didnt have the GT logo

but I dont like most any logo

Even my Favorite THe SNAKE



caliber and SN# only on the magwell
Link Posted: 6/17/2006 11:49:56 AM EST
I like them too. I've sold all my other lowers off and am only using the GTS lowers.

Four from the first batch, 2 from the complete lower batch and 1 from the 2nd batch.



Top complete lower batch, middle 2nd batch, bottom 1st batch

Excellent! I plan on getting a GT lower in the near future...

Just out of curiosity, at what serial number did the 2nd batch start from?
Link Posted: 6/19/2006 10:44:12 AM EST
Denny,

I just spoke with you on the phone about a Noveske barreled upper and one of these lowers. I was going to order it from the website, but do I just need to fax my dealer's FFL? Thanks.

Denny, how about this, can I pick up a stripped lower at your place to avoid instate shipping and transfer fees?

Always thought the roll mark was a little cheesy. Mega or CMMG has a better finish, IMO.

The rollmark remark I can buy. Either you like em plain or with artwork. As to the finish, I don't think you can find a better one. Equal, but not better.

Denny

Denny, that's why I added the "IMO". More like personal preference.

imo the mega finish is more like paint. looks as though it could chip off, i have two and they arent as good as the gts lowers.


but different strokes for different folks.
Link Posted: 6/27/2006 3:23:11 AM EST
I have some Mega as well as some Global Tactical lowers. Fit with CMT uppers is about the same with both ,( Meaning Great!). I like the Global Tactical finish much better and the machining is Damn Nice. Given a choice I'll use the GT's Hands Down..
