They are as good as any other in spec lower. That is a great price.

The etching cannot be removed without having the lower refinished.

That's a great price. You may not like the logo. Others will be impressed by it. Not that that really matters.
I'd buy 2 at that price.

Thats a great price I just got one for $135. I got it because it is not marked with a caliber, not even marked multi. I don't know what I am going to build on it so I liked the no markings .

That is a great price. I bought one a while ago for much more. Mine was a little out of spec with the takedown hole distance and like you, I don't care much for the cheesy logo. I wound up carefully egging out the rear takedown hole just a slight bit to get mine to fit correctly and I 'painted' over the logo with a sharpie. I would never buy another one for what I paid for it, but at $89 I might go for it.

A lower is a lower, as long as it's in spec. It's nothing special but it's nothing bad either. However right now you can get a Spikes lower for $79.95 (shipped) from Aim, or a Palmetto lower (from Palmetto) for 64.95 shipped. Those are shipped prices and you will have to pay the FFL fee at your end. If yours is $89.00 with the FFL fee included it is a competitive price. Remember, it's just a lower so it's no biggie, go with the logo that bugs you the least, OR the best price, your decision, it really won't matter when you pull the trigger....<><....:)

That actually seems like a too good to be true price. The cheapest I've seen those are $140 + - Not to throw a scare, but did I read something about some knock off''s going around. Were those the S&W.
