How many manufactures are there really? I have heard that there are only 7-8 and its just a matter of whose name gets stamped on the side.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Nowhere near complete. The company that manufactures my 5.56 and my .308 lowers isn't mentioned there.

A new one needs to be started, Since that OP isn't being updated, it's just a clusterfuck.

Stag used to make lowers for LMT or some anyway? Interesting.

TONS of 07s popped up, which is probably why the state dept is now making them all register and pay for ITAR at $2250 a year. But most people still contract to a few 07s.

I am confused. Either my brain is not working or that post in the link is not written well. Does LMT make their own lowers or not.

First part says:

Not all inclusive, and a few brands have had more than one manufacturer cut their receivers. Many companies receive CMT and LMT cuts in the white and finish them themselves. I have not seen a LAR or MMS cut that was finished by a third party company.

LMT = LMT, Lauer(old), DS Arms, PWA, Eagle, Knights Armament, Barrett, Bushmaster (?)

Than later on:

Wishful thinking:

LMT (very wishful thinking...)

To me...non issue. If it is manufactured within spec i do not care what name is on it.
A list of out of spec manufactures would make more sense.
