I'm considering buying a rifle right now, the only thing stopping me is the fact that the upper and lower don't match at all, colorwise anyway. How much would it cost to get the lower refinished to match the upper and do you guys have any suggestions on where to do it? Thanks

I assume the rifle is used?? and the guy build the rifle from parts?? that is why there is different color in the gun?? Let me first suggest you buy the gun and shoot it, if the color bothers you that much I suggest to have you entire gun refinished, not just your lower. so they will match perfectly there is many shop that will do a great job. do a search on line and find one close to you. I had several gun(not ARs) finished by Walter Birdsong, his black T finish is legendery. Lauer weaponery is famous for doing camo AR, he is posted in the industrial board, you can check him out there. I figure an entire AR would run about 200 dollars.

OK. The only place I think in TX is Murray Urbach in Dallas. I know, he is the best HK smith, but a friend of mine says Murray can also refinish it. It might take a while because the man is very busy. I'm sure there are other places also, but I have no idea. HTH

lauer custom had a special. i think it was 50 to refinish a stipped lower in duracoat. dunno if it still applies, but i'm sure they'd give you a good price. i'm very happy with the work they did for me.
