I don't know about their current production.  Their older stuff fit DIAS just fine, but the ones I've tried were tight on a link.  It would fit, but was rubbing up against the sides of the receiver.

Yes.  For a billet lower though, nothing beats AXTS.

I can confirm that the Joe Bob billet lowers and the DDLES glock lower both work great with a RLL. I have had no luck with Del-Ton and LAR lowers. They each need to be clearanced on the sides a little.

Just an update that NDS (Nodak Spud) lowers are RDIAS compatible as-is, and RLL compatible with two small clearance cuts at the back radii of the fire control well - providing an extra 1/8" clearance for the link to move, as in this clearance cut photo

Does anyone know if the Noveske lowers, early generation or later are low shelf and work for RDIAS or the link?

update, as per one source, not personally verified, they said Noveske is high shelf

I  recently picked up a Palmetto State Armory low shelf lower.  Their new Glock mag 9mm lowers are low shelf also.

I have a Gen II Noveske, it is in fact LOW SHELF. Quentin Defense and Seekins are both Low Shelf.



Has anyone considered or tried using a 80% jig and milling a low shelf in a 100% lower that is high shelf from the factory?

Well, I am going to try just that here this coming weekend with a 5d Tactical jig on a v7 lower. I will report back.

V7 Lowers are high shelf by 3/64ths of a inch. Why? Apparently for export issues.

I successfully used a 5d Tactical 80% jig to convert a high shelf V7 Lower to a low shelf configuration.

Has anyone tried their RLL in a WINDHAM WEAPONRY?  Does it need any milling or is it a plug and play Lower?

Aero Precision best fit that I have found in 27 years, that and preban Colt A2. Low shelf/high starboard side wall both. BCM is low shelf but starboard forward retaining wall low and RDIAS had a tendency to tilt in the receiver requiring shimming for a tight fit with the upper lug.

Thanks! Is your experience with DIAS or LL?

I have a Noveske and an Aero I'm having tuned with an LL shortly

What should the width and depth measurements be?
Maybe someone should post the technique used to measure so we can make sure the list is correct

The * marked are correct, I have used my RDIAS in these perfectly. Also add KAC SR-15

To build on the DIAS list a Broadhead Armory DIAS was used in the following:
Aero AR15 Gen 2 Lower Receiver, Special Edition: PEW works perfectly!
Current 2018/2019 production lowers from Anderson also work.
My old pre-ban Bushmasters should work as the fit is equal to the Aero's and Anderson's.

It would not drop into a POF P-415 billet lower or ARCOM billet lower, they're both too tight and will not seat completely. Should be simple to enlarge the width of the pocket in each so it would fit and both are low shelf.

Another possible is the PWS MK1 MOD2. It's low shelf and the DIAS fits but the profile of the pocket doesn't retain the DIAS and the tensioning screw / plunger would have to be adjusted or removed. Because theres no "bump out" on the right side of the pocket the uppers rear lug would have to hold the DIAS in place.
