I bought a PWA with a serial number 7XXX some time ago and was curious if they were cast or forged lowers. I've read that PWA made both cast and forged. Anyone know how to tell the difference?

The one I have is forged - and very high quality I might add....

If the letters are raised, it's cast. If they are engraved into the receiver then it is forged.

Check the fence around the mag release. If the vertical fence passes the horizontal fence and tapers off into the magwell, it is forged. If the vertical fence stops at the horizontal fence, it is cast.

My PWA is forged.

Hope this helps
