Can anyone explain the difference between cast and forged receivers? Strengths and weaknesses of each? Are the pre-ban DPMS's any good?
I LIKE ALL DPMS STUFF-- AS FOR THE CAST VS. FORGED, FORGED IS STRONGER AND WILL COST ABOUT 20-50$ MORE.
When you're shooting, you'll never notice a difference. It would take about a bazillion rounds to wear out a cast lower, maybe a bazillion and a quarter to wear out a forged. Both will last almost forever.
Enough of this technical talk.
