I have a craving for a polymer rifle. Trying to decide between getting a Cav Arms lower and putting one of my Bushmaster uppers on it, or enduring the wait and getting an AR180B. Which would you do?

I vote Cav Arms.

Choice of color, and you can tailor it to whatever type of AR-15 type rifle you want at the time.

M-4 on Mondays....
Dissipator on Tuesdays....
Varmint setup on Wednesdays......

Well you get the point.  I think Cav arms is the more versatile option, and colorful if you wish as well.

I love my ugly 180B so I gotta go with "ARlene" but Cav makes an interesting lower, is less expensive and it is interchangable with AR-15 stuff while the 180B only uses the trigger group and mags.   That didn't help any, did it??

I'm not positive, but I THINK that the answer may be as easy as "when do you want it?".

LOL! Smart@ss.

I might indeed get them both one day. After sleeping on it though, I am thinking I will probably just get a Cav. I have a Dissipator upper that I could put on it. Might look for a 180B once they become more available.
Cavalry Arms seems to have a great reputation (shameless plug for Gary), and I think that their lowers look just different enough from a standard AR lower to be, well, different .
Gary, If I get my dealer to order me one, what kind of time frame does it take, ballpark, for just a standard black complete lower?

I dont own either, but I vote for the Cav15.  Immediate delivery sure kicks the ass of a multiple month wait.

Two important points:

- the AR-180B is very scarce right now, which means people are paying premium prices for them.   Hopefully in a few more months they will be all over the place, and at a reasonable cost.

- the CAV-15 lower is $150 or so.  This is chump change.  You can get a good parts kit for about $70 or so, and you're done.
