I need info on AR lowers. I'm in the mood to buy one (and possibly other stuff, too) tomorrow, and need as much info as possible. Some say a lower is a lower is a lower, as all it does is hold the trigger group, that it's the upper that makes the difference.

What say ye, guys?

Sorry, cannot help you. My Bushy lower came with a Bushy upper.

Would you know how to capture a video clip off a DVD?

Whats up there buddy...

I bought two DPMS forged lowers and they shoot as well as any other AR i've ever shot.

Nah, I can handle capturing video if necessary. Would like to build my own AR. I figure it's time, what with over a year on the site and all...

DPMS would be among my top choices, since I am contemplating getting a DPMS upper as well. I also can't rule out RRA or Bushy either.

Getting a Colt would be self-defeating.

Anyone of the guys who went to the last fun show recall the aluminum billet receivers? Who made those and how expensive were they?

Shouldn't I be thanking you for nothing?

Well, I SEE it, but I don't think it WORKS.

Well, it works for me and that is all that matters. See, it's all about me.

More like three letters, but I get the point.

It's on the list to shop for tomorrow. I think I'll be on the lookout for DPMS, Bushy, and RRA. I saw something in another thread on the AR side of things that the ears around the front takedown pin needed to be ground down to accomodate a free-float tube on the Diamond receivers, so I'll keep that idea on the back burner for now.

Howdy from the NC mountains! I'm cruising along at a blistering 12000bps just seeing what's up.

I'm very happy with my RRA lower with the 2 stage NM trigger, I realy dig the feel of it and seems to make me more accurate with the little bit of pull on that second stage.
9 months ago those lowers were selling for about 400 +/-. It doesn't have the bushy hi-gloss finish but I kinda prefer the matte finish, you can buy the 2 stage national match 2 stage trigger by itself for 90 bucks.
Y'all have fun at the show, too bad i'm mising it.

J3_, it's late and my brain is failing me. School me on milled and forged receivers. Plusses and minuses?

Thanks for the offer, j3_, but I think I have information to wing it tomorrow. I'll just look for a good deal on stripped lowers and make my decision based on price point.

<edit: and on that note, I'm off to bed. See most of you folks in the morning.>

I thought we were collectively boycotting Century Arms for some reason or another.. something about conversion kits?? It hasn't been an issue with me so please correct me if I'm wrong, that was my impression.

I'm falling asleep on this piss poor connection, enjoy the show tomorrow [>Q]

Yes we are boycotting Century Arms due to the fact that the only way that they can get their POS FAL recivers moving is to put their competition in jail.

The FAL receiver issue alone is enough to steer me away from Century. Nuf said.
